Summer Photo Competition – Result

We’re delighted with all the photos we received for our Summer Photo Competition. It was great to see all the smiling faces, blue skies and family fun (and a little bit of rain too!). We’ve picked a winner at random and the winner is Sally O’Hara. Well done Sally – we’ll be in touch. And remember, everyone who sent in a photo to us earns a 10% discount off their next PuddleDucks order.

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.

PuddleDucks – Quality by Design

When we started PuddleDucks seven years ago, we scouted around for the best kids waterproof gear from Scandanavia.  We were determined to find waterproofs that would really work and would last. After looking at a number of manufacturers we selected Abeko from Sweden as our supplier of choice.  We liked the look and quality of their gear and were impressed that the children’s clothes were designed specifically for the needs of children.  Abeko’s 60 years of experience in manufacturing rainwear was also reasssuring for our new business as quality was key right for us from the start.  There were cheaper options out there but they simply didn’t compare.  We decided to spend a couple more Euro and go for gear that ‘Does what it says on the tin!’ Looking back, we definitely made the right choice!  And it seems that our customers certainly agree with us.  Over the years we have constantly heard how delighted our customers are with the quality and durability of our gear.  Many customers can’t believe that their first set of waterproofs are still going strong years later having been passed down from one sibling to another!  Here are just some of the comments we’ve recieved from customers about the Abeko waterproofs.

The superb quality of the Abeko gear is not created by accident. Abeko have been manufacturing quality waterproofs in Sweden for over 60 years. They use the very best materials, the best manufacturing processes and carry our rigerous testing on the gear.

The tests are carried our on all the products before they are approved.  New materials, seams, tape systems, welds and construction methods all have to be passed by Abeko Labs to prove their worth. They don’t go easy on the clothing! They scratch it, stretch it, wash it, measure it and cut it before the gear can pass the tests.  They test all their products and ideas. Everything has to be passed by Abeko Labs. Have a look at the photos below of just two of these tests.

So by buying Abeko at PuddleDucks you can be sure that you are buying the best quality waterproofs in the world.

PuddleDuck-ers Out and About 14

The latest in our PuddleDuck-ers Out and About series comes to us from Eleanor Heffernan showing her 2 fellas Cian and Oisín, having great fun in their new PuddleDucks gear.

Over to Eleanor “I would like to say thank you for my order, received impeccably packed and in zip time too. my two boys (Oisin, 13 months, Cian, 3 in December) have worn them daily since they arrived on Thursday. They look really great on, nice and baggy and bright and have been just right for mucking about in the front garden without Mammy feeling slightly stressed about just how damp they are getting.”

Thanks so much Eleanor, Oisín and Cian. Here’s some lovely photos of the lads in their gear:
