Our story began... in the summer of 2002, with the opening of our shop in the beautiful Peak District National Park. Inspired by the title of a children’s nursery rhyme, and also by some real-life ducks that waddle across the road outside the shop, we settled on the memorable name Five Little Ducks.
We realised there was a need for a toy shop offering not just good quality wooden toys, but attractive and well designed toys that would complement a stylish home. With this in mind, our mission was established, and ever since we have been delighting customers young and old with our range of great quality, well designed, toys and gifts for babies and young children. Over the last couple of years we have also introduced some fabulous brands of children's clothes, such as 100% organic cotton clothing from Frugi and Toby Tiger.
All of our products have been carefully chosen because they are special in some way; be it well made, cleverly designed, refreshingly different, or just simply adorable. We invest a huge amount of time in seeking out and selecting the very best toys from around the world. We source many of our toys, clothes and children’s gifts from small independent suppliers, from fairtrade enterprises and from the design-led companies of Europe. We are proud to support British-made products and are constantly keeping a lookout for great design and quality from the UK.
Our friendly, knowledgeable staff are always ready to advise and assist you as much as possible, both in the shop and on the telephone.
Building on the knowledge and experience we have gained over the years, we thought it was time for our website to be born.
