Late Late Toy Show Tales for Tadpoles

The most wonderful time of the year is here! And this year has been extra special for us already, with a fantastic shout out from Ryan Tubridy on the Late Late Toy Show!! He was talking about our fabulous Roald Dahl cushions, which have since flown out the door! Some of our most sought after cushions are now sold out, but they will all be back in next week; if you would like to reserve one, or be notified when they are back in stock, please call us on 01 679 2155 or email info@talesfortadpoles.ie.
