I bought these Smartmax magnets from the most lovely toy shop in Lyme Regis called Puddleduck. There were so many things to choose from. This is the first time she has played with them and she loves the magnets force. They are fab for creating and building. I can't wait to get more. - Mrs H

Just went Lyme Regis on a baby free morning and stumbled across this incredible toyshop. It was full of wonderful learning resources and play items. So many toys that I have seen on Instagram accounts that I follow. The owner was so friendly and helpful . I recommend this toyshop to anyone and will definitely be going back for Christmas presents. Thank you for such an enjoyable shopping experience. I can't wait for my daughter to play with her new toys. - Stephanie

This is a little gem of a shop tucked away down a side street in Lyme. Very small and quaint but well worth a visit. The lady who assisted us was so accommodating and Muffin the dog was a welcome addition too! - Emma

What a fabulous find in Lyme Regis this was on our holiday. This shop is full of amazing toys and educational activities for children of all ages (and adults). We came back several times over our week holiday! The owner was friendly, helpful and very kind. She made the children feel welcome and went above and beyond when a piece was missing from our game to deliver a replacement to our holiday campsite with two wonderful gifts included for the children. I highly recommend this shop!!! - Sue

I just wanted to say how pleased I am with the order I just received from you. I found your shop via an Instagram story last week. You have such lovely stock, and the website made it really easy to find some lovely things too. The order also came super quickly. I am delighted, and will be back! - Sarah

I hardly ever buy anything new for poor old Casper. But while on a trip to Dorset at the weekend I popped into Puddleduck, a little toy shop that specialises in sensory and Montessori inspired toys and couldn't resist. Now hands up, I spent a bloody fortune and it was in no way thrifty, but Casper absolutely loves them. This selection kept him amused for three hours this morning whilst I drank three hot cups of coffee and sent four long emails. They also grow with him and his imagination and did I mention 3 cups of HOT coffee? - Lorna

 Wonderful shop. Came here on holiday before lockdown with my niece and nephew and we were overwhelmed with the amount of choice, and the quality of the toys. My wife and I couldn’t decide what to buy so ordered online recently, and the level of customer service was exceptional - quick delivery and a personalised service! Very happy, will be shopping here again, and am glad that there is this shop in Lyme Regis! - Jamie

We were so happy to discover this beautiful shop when visiting Lyme Regis earlier on in the year and were amazed at the huge range of resources and toys for special educational needs, along with the lovely owner who had so much knowledge and advise about our little girl who is due to start school soon! We were even happier when we were able to order all of the amazing products they have on their website and talk to the owner for even more help and advise! The order arrived very quickly with a lovely handwritten thank you note, and my daughter can’t wait to get back to Lyme Regis to visit Puddleduck and Muffin the dog! - Alice

Wow! I ordered some gifts late on Tuesday and Melissa hand delivered (social distancing style) on Wednesday. Everything is individually wrapped and in a lovely bag. She even popped in one chalks for free as she'd not managed to put them online yet! Amazing thank you so much! - Siobhan

@puddleducklyme to the rescue! It's been tricky keeping Edie occupied while helping Amelie with her maths so I sent an SOS to @puddleducklyme late last night and today was greeted with a selection of lovely colour sorting toys for Edie to play with. ... We are so lucky to have this lovely little shop on our doorstep, take a look... Marie

Wow! Now that's customer service! thank you very much. I saw your  post form Edible Eddie on your Instagram which drew me to your attention! Can't wait to receive our bits, the girls will be thrilled. Thank you, Kirsty

Puddleducks is the most amazing toy shop; small but with a HUGE range of really brilliant lovely toys and games. Tomi, the owner, is an Early Years teacher and it really shows in how she’s stocked the shop. Kids can play whilst you browse. I can’t recommend this shop highly enough; pop along and see for yourself and I defy you to come home empty handed! Yvonne.

This is a fabulous shop. Tomi is so welcoming and knowledgable about children with special needs and the shop is well stocked with a range of sensory toys and equipment. It is a real pleasure to visit the shop and be able to see and feel things and let your child choose what feels right for them. Jenny.

We 💚💛💙🧡 this shop, amazing selection of toys, wonderful, friendly atmosphere. It's so lovely to see the children enjoying sharing games inside the shop, being invited to try things out before we buy. We visited twice on our holiday and would love to continue supporting your beautiful shop online whilst we are at home! Emma.

Fantastic shop, full of sensory toys, creative toys, lots of toys and gifts plus it's autism and dog friendly. Lovely owner and lovely shop, well worth a visit and tucked away in Drakes Way just down from Roly's Fudge Shop in Lyme Regis. Debbie.

Visited the shop today while on holiday. Such a welcoming atmosphere, and very friendly lady. It was really nice to see the lady encourage the children to try out the toys and that she got involved and helped the children. Some lovely items in the shop and lots of sensory toys which was lovely to see (my autistic son loved it). Sophie

I knew there was something different about Puddleduck within a minute of entering the shop. What a wonderful place! My son is 7, autistic and scared to death of dogs. However with your gentle approach and continued attention, he was quickly engaged in and enjoying Kanoodle 3D and then went on to stroke Muffin and hold her paw! Amazing! There is definitely something special about you, Tomi. I thought you must have some experience with young children, maybe as a teacher or possibly with Special Needs Children so I HAD to look you up when I got home. Thank you for taking time with my son. You have really made a difference and I hope your business is a great success!

A beautiful shop stocking a variety of quality children's toys and gifts over two floors. A couple of things make this shop stand out: 1) A very warm welcome and invitation to try some toys that are on display. 2) a good range of products (things I've not seen before) including sensory toys. It is situated just off Broad Street (we found it after spotting it's A-Board) Well worth looking :)  Kirsty.

Puddleduck is an absolutely brilliant shop you can spend ages looking around - both adults and kids! Such a well curated range of toys with something different and interesting for all ages. 

Tomi was really helpful both in-store and also online when I wanted to order some extra bits we had seen. 
Really worth a visit. Thanks again for the great customer service. Ruth.

Puddleduck is a brilliant shop, we popped in for some birthday presents for a 1, 2 and 4 year old. The range of toys is fantastic and the very knowledgeable advice much appreciated. The toys are engaging and interesting and very different to the things you find elsewhere. 
My 5 year old loves these figures he got, all based on Greek mythology. Perfect for imaginative play. Rosie

Just returned home from a weekend to visit Lyme Regis with my 3yr old granddaughter, Molly. We both loved your shop and were made to feel very welcome. Molly calls it "Granny's Fairy Shop" and she's asked if we can come back soon! I bought lots of little bits to make a Fairy garden for Molly and will send you a picture when we have completed it.
Thank you Tomi and Muffin for looking after us so well
Love Pippa and Molly x

A great little toy shop, a lot of effort has been made to make it welcoming and magical for children. Helen

What a wonderful shop! The owner has put together a brilliant selection of toys that beautiful and help development. We spent ages getting great help, and fending off the kids who wanted loads of stuff (probably as so different than regular stores). 

It’s down a narrow pedestrian lane, so might be easily missed. So do yourself a favour and go to this toy shop! Azadi.

Fab quirky toy shop. A must visit if in Lyme.

What a fantastic toy shop full of the most unusual and interesting toys. 
The owner is engaging with the children and makes shopping a joy! The children can play and interact with the toys and this is encouraged throughout the shop. 

We left with many new toys including this vets kit as my little boy is obsessed with flamingos! 

It’s fab - my 2 year old loved it also , so we had to buy one for him too. It has a feeding dish and medical equipment which is all easy for little ones to use . Our lounge was turned into a vets waiting room and both boys played contently role playing out little scenarios.
I am so pleased we found you and what a gem to have locally ! 
We will be back soon! Debi.
