Muddy Puddles is a bright and exciting ecommerce business with a simple aim – to make practical and perfect outerwear for children. Today, our waterproofs, wellies and ski gear are kitting out young adventurers throughout the UK so they can roam free whatever the weather. We believe that a childhood spent exploring the outdoors is the best type of childhood and that there is no such thing as bad weather just the wrong kit.

With private financial backing and a strong core customer base Muddy Puddles plans to accelerate growth over the next 3 years.
