Customer Reviews – Winner of May Draw

During April, we introduced a new facility for customers to enter reviews on the PuddleDucks website and we have been delighted with the response since. The review technology was introduced in association with LouderVoice.

The reviews appear on the home page and on the product pages. We feel that the reviews allow customers to help each other find the right product for their needs.

Here’s how the reviews now look on the home page:


We arranged a draw among the customers who submitted a review up to the end of May. The draw was made today by our son, Jake and the winner is Brenda McColgan from Co. Dublin. Well done Brenda – you are the winner of a €50 PuddleDucks Voucher.

PuddleDucks Customers Given a Louder Voice

We often receive great emails from customers regarding both our products and service, some of which appear on our customer testimonials page. 

To make it even easier for customers to get an idea about our products we have today introduced a new Product Review form to our website, similar to that seen on sites such as Amazon.  This allows a customer to rate a product and comment on it. These reviews will then be viewable throughout the site and we hope they will help other customers in making their own choice from the PuddleDucks range.


The customer review technology has been added in partnership with LouderVoice – the leading online reviws website. The reviews entered on the PuddleDucks website will also automatically appear on the LouderVoice site and their mobile phone applications. This should enable us to spread the PuddleDucks story to even more new visitors.


If you’d like to enter a review – please visit the PuddleDucks site, log in as a registered user and visit the product page and enter your review. Many thanks.
