Jumping in Muddy Puddles

We’re loving the reviews that customers have entered on the PuddleDucks website. Here’s one of the latest from Sandy in  Co. Offaly:

Your waterproofs are fantastic! We recently got to try out the dungarees and leggings on a very sunny but showery day. After 3 hours of splashing around in muddy puddles (a la Peppa Pig), I finally persuaded my puddle ducks to part with their new gear. I was very impressed with how lightweight and comfortable they were. And the best bit – you can just pop them in the washing machine after. My only regret is that I didn’t have them last summer!

 Thanks again to Sandy and seeing as Peppa Pig was mentioned, here’s a short clip of Peppa and George having fun jumping in the muddy puddles. In this snippet please substitute the word “PuddleDucks” for boots!

PuddleDuckers Out and About 9

The latest in the series of PuddleDuckers Out and About is really a PuddleDuckers In … and In Bed.

It was sent to us from Joanne Hession from Co. Kildare. It shows Joanne’s two year old daughter Megan ready for bed in her unusual bed time footwear. Megan loves her Strawberry Pink Smelly Wellies so much that she doesn’t want to take them off at all – not even at bedtime. This photo was taken by Megan’s sister and budding photographer Hannah aged six.

JHession Wellies

Many thanks Joanne, Megan and Hannah for the photo and story. 

If any other parents would like to tell us their experiences of their children wearing their PuddleDucks please contact us at into@puddleducks.ie

Our own Summer Ideas campaign

When we started PuddleDucks a few years ago we thought that it would be a seasonal business. We’d be busy in the autumn, winter and spring and we’d be quiet during the summer months. For the first couple of years this turned out to be the case but last year was different. Due to the “bad summer” with its huge amount of rainfall we were very busy – with August 2008 our busiest month for sales ever. We felt a little guilty about this – as everyone was feeling glum about day after day of rain, here at PuddleDucks we had order after order coming in.  At least we felt we were helping our customers and their families to get out and about – whatever the weather.

A fine day during Summer 2008

A fine day during Summer 2008

So what will summer 2009 bring? Will it be a bad summer, like last year or will it be the good summer that everyone is hoping for this year?  Like everyone else we hope it’s a good summer – as we’re only human and we love the sunshine! But the business also needs sales during this period – so we’re planning on expanding the range to add “good summer” products.

But what new products will we add?  This is where we’d like your help. Can you think of any new summer clothes or summer items we should add to the PuddleDucks range? They would need to be fairly compatible with our current range and we should concentrate on kids stuff.

My ideas so far are for kids wetsuits and UV suits. Good idea or Bad idea? – please let us know. We’re well aware that these items can be found at your local Dunnes/Lidl at quite a low cost. There would need to be a good reason to purchase them from PuddleDucks such as better quality or a certain better known brand.

We’d love to hear your ideas on this. Are there any items that you have problems finding in Ireland or any items that you needed to buy online from abroad? We welcome all ideas – however wacky!

The best idea submitted will get a €50 PuddleDucks voucher. Please add your idea to the comments on this post. Thanks a lot.

PuddleDucks on Pix.ie

 Inspired by an talk by Krishna De at a seminar last October, I set up a PuddleDucks page on the Irish photo-sharing website pix.ie.

pixie-whitebg-flat-jpg

The idea was that we could show off the lovely gift wrapping that Suzanne does for customers wishing to send our PuddleDucks waterproof gear as gifts to friends or family.

Suzanne takes great care and pride in the gift wrapping and I think the photos of them look good when collected together. Click here to see all our photos on pix.ie.

The gift wrapping service costs an extra €3 (gift wrap) or €5 (gift box) and can be selected as an option when ordering online. A complimentary card with the message of your choice is also included.
