Say hello to Puddles

Puddles is The Children’s Appeal mascot and our adorable duck is on a mission to build a new Children’s Department at Ipswich Hospital.

You can support The Children’s Appeal by ordering a puddles duck of your own!

Puddles is CE marked, safety approved from 0+ months so suitable for new born babies and comes with your choice of message (please choose when placing your order):

  • Happy Easter – a cuddly alternative (or addition) to chocolate
  • I was born at Ipswich Hospital – a sentimental message for the new baby in town!
  • Welcome to the world – a lovely present for a baby shower or as baby’s first soft toy
  • Ipswich Hospital made me feel better – a fluffy friend for life
  • Get well soon – sure to raise a smile
  • Happy Birthday – a gorgeous gift for any age
  • Thank you – a great alternative to flowers and longer lasting too
  • Thank you for supporting The Children’s Appeal – a duck for any occasion!
  • World’s best teacher! – sure to become a class mascot too!

So whether it’s a gift for a loved one or just an addition for the toy box, Puddles is a fantastic way to show your support for The Children’s Appeal.
