More PuddleDucks In Action Photos

We always love to receive photos of our gear in action being happily worn by kids in the the great outdoors. Here’s two gorgeous photos we’ve received recently.

The first is from from customer, Janice McKeller. Janice says ” I ordered this set for my grandson some weeks ago and it was given as a Christmas present, it is brilliant! It exceeds all expectations, it was given a real test at Culzean Country Park yesterday. I thought that you would like to see the photos”. Thanks Janice – the photos are fab.

[The waterproof set being worn by Janice’s grandson is the Squiggles Set]

The second photo is a snowy one of gorgeous little George McKenna on the slopes in France, snug and warm in his PuddleDucks gear. And mum Emer’s feedback on the fleece-lined set … “One word: awesome”. Adding “We’re so proud to show off our wee miracle boy in your wonderful clobber! Worth noting too is that under the suit are the Puddleducks long thermals which keep him completely toasty whilst rolling around in the snow (he’s not a walker yet but the kid can really roll!!).” Thanks so much Emer (and George!) – we love the photo and thanks so much for your feedback.

Needless to say we’d love to see your own photos of your PuddleDuck-ers in action. Please send them to us at info@puddleducks.ie.

Press Release: Summer 2012 Positive for Irish Online Business

Here is the text of a Press Release we have sent out today about Summer 2012 being a good one for PuddleDucks:

Summer 2012 Positive for Irish Online Business.

Despite the wet weather, many Irish families have still enjoyed the great outdoors this summer.  Irish online retailer, PuddleDucks.ie has had a busy summer kitting out families with a combination of waterproofs and wetsuits.   Their sales have shown an increase of over 30% from last summer.

Cork-based PuddleDucks specialise in outdoor wear for children.  With so many families choosing to holiday in Ireland this year, along with the worst summer weather for 26 years1, they have been busy all summer with online orders from all corners of Ireland.

Suzanne Kingston, owner of PuddleDucks.ie commented   “Our customers were determined to make the most of the school holidays and not be put off by the weather.  Parents came to us to get wetsuits for warmer days at the beach and waterproofs for the rainy days, meaning their children were able to spend most of the summer outdoors. As they say in Sweden – where all of our waterproofs come from – there’s no such thing as bad weather, just unsuitable clothing!”

Adding More Payment Options with PayPal

Since launching PuddleDucks, we have very successfully partnered with Realex Payments so our customer can securely pay for their online purchases using their Visa, MasterCard or Laser cards. As we believe the more payment oprions we can provide for our customers, the better – we have now added PayPal to the payment methods on our website. We expect that some customers may prefer to pay by PayPal than through the more traditional cards for a variety of reasons.

Additional Options


We also think the Paypal option will be very useful for overseas buyers who would like to pay in their own currency. This facility is offered as standard by PayPal. Customers may also have balances in their PayPal account which they would like to utilise when paying online.

We are of course, very happy to accept payment through whatever options our customers prefer. It will be interetsing to see over time how many opt to pay by PayPal.
