The Winter Bliss Dress

Back in 2009, Peekaboo Beans released this gorgeous Winter Bliss dress. It was part of an Award Winning collection and instantly became a fan favourite. It’s not hard to see why, the rich purple with soft pinks and greys coordinate perfectly. The colour blocking, and front pocket with gathering add original details. Our custom fabric, made with a cotton/spandex blend is soft, comfortable and durable for all kinds of play!

They are highly coveted, and if you can find one, you can expect to pay a lot for it (and resell it too!) Since this dress was released, I have seen it resale for upwards of $250! (I’m not kidding!)

You can imagine how thrilled we were back in Winter 2014 to see a newly redesigned Bliss Dress! It had the same great shape, unique front pocket, but just a hint of the colour blocking we all loved so much.

Once again, Peekaboo Beans has done it! They’ve brought back a classic fan favourite! This version is sure to be a sell out, so if you like it, you’ll want to order one fast!

A vintage 2009 favourite, this cozy style is a great option for winter. Easily throw an In The Mix Tee underneath on those chillier days or keep your hands warm in the pouch pocket! Colour-blocking allows this style to effortlessly mix and match with any of our winter leggings.

The highly coveted Winter Bliss Dress is back!

Peekaboo Beans: 12 reasons we are different!

There are lots of clothing options out there for us to choose from, and especially with girls it’s hard to resist some of the cute pieces! But with Peekaboo Beans, you really don’t need to look elsewhere for top quality, style and comfort all in one. It really is the trifecta of kids clothing!  Here’ are 12 REASONS why we are different (and superior to other brands!)

SAFETY

1. Chin guards – never worry about  pinching delicate skin when you zip up a zipper. 

Chin Guards

2. No small parts. Unlike some kids clothing that is full of embellishments, ours contains no small parts, so there’s no risk of choking. (Especially great for those sensory kids who put clothing in their mouths.)

3. Tangle free strings – our drawstrings are tacked down so they won’t come out. Another bonus, our hoodies do not have drawstrings.

FUNCTION

4. Twill tape hem – to stabilize our garments. You’ll also notice that it keeps the ends of our shirts from curling up.

5. A-Line Shape – all of our tops have a great shape, with extra room for little bellies.

6. Flatlock stitching – no bumpy seams to irritate kids!

7. Easy zippers – we’ve found the best zippers for little hands, with flat round zipper pulls to make learning to dress easy.

8. Quality fabric – thick and durable to last! Our products are meant to be passed along to siblings or friends (or even sold on Vintage Beans).

9. Pre-shrunk – nothing like finding a great outfit only to have it shrink beyond use after you wash it. That will never happen with Peekaboo Beans. All of our fabrics are pre-shrunk to ensure perfect fit!

 10. Thumb holes – find me a kid who doesn’t love them! Great for keeping sleeves down when layering.

FUN

11. Versatility – our collections are meant to mix and match. And now with our FUNdamentals basic collection, you can add pieces throughout the year!

12. Reversible styles! Every season we bring out pieces that are reversible, (like jackets and vests), or convertible (dresses that turn into skirts, or pants that zip off into shorts). It’s our way of making pieces more versatile and fun!

Peekaboo Beans: Tactile Sensitivity

Tactile Sensitivity and the 6 Year Old Diva, or How Peekaboo Beans Saved my Mornings.
(Guest Post by Neal Dawe)

Peekaboo Beans Vintage Tunic

We dread mornings at our house. Not the getting up at 6 a.m. (if we’re lucky). Not the multiple diaper changes (two year old and 8 month old). It’s our six year old – and her ongoing battle with seams, socks and fabrics.

Our daughter has tactile sensitivity, meaning things most kids would never notice about getting dressed can be a major source of aggravation for her, and by extension, my wife and me. Most days I’m the one getting her dressed while my wife deals with the baby and we pray our son stays in bed for a few minutes.

For the longest time it was the same routine in my daughter’s room:

“How about this? You like this colour”.

“No! It pinches me!”

“Ok, how about these?”

“No! Those hurt my legs!”

“Fine – what do you want to wear?”

“My bathing suit?”

“Honey, it’s a school day”.

Queue meltdown.

Finding clothes that meet her needs and seemingly were made with her in mind has been a godsend. Little things that most people don’t even consider – flat seams, thumb holes in the arms allowing her to avoid bunching when she puts on a jacket, loose fitting legs with a snug elastic waist – make her Peekaboo Beans clothes her undisputed favourites. That makes her life (and our mornings) 100% easier.

It’s not well understood why some kids have tactile sensitivities, the upshot is the same. She can love an item of clothing in the store, or even to try it on for a few minutes. But actually wearing it – sitting, moving, running, generally being a child – can be an ordeal if the fabric, fit and design aren’t right.

Some might think our daughter is just being a Princess, wanting what she wants when she wants it. Believe me, that was our first thought too. After dealing with this for years and finally reaching out for help to doctors, psychologists and Occupational Therapists, we know understand that she’s not doing this on purpose. Her tactile sensitivities are part of a real disorder, Sensory Perception Disorder (SPD) and it’s something she can’t control.

Now, that’s not to say she isn’t a Princess. She is. Very much so. That’s also why Peekaboo Beans works for us. Anything considered stylish, fun and even “cool” by our own redheaded diva are rare and prized indeed. Right up there with Justin Bieber and iCarly. There are lots of “cool” clothes though, she can go to the mall and find stores full of faux-80s glam clothes she simply adores – on the rack. And she will beg for them, occasionally even getting them, but despite the early onset peer pressure of Elementary school she still can’t bear to actually wear them.

I’m so thankful my wife discovered Peekaboo Beans; it’s made all the difference for our daughter, allowing her stay “cool” while staying warm, relaxed and comfortable at same time.

Keepin’ it Real – An Event for Tweens!

With the upcoming launch of Peekaboo Beans’ newest collection for tweens – CiCi Bean – I wanted to do something to celebrate this new line while being true to its essence.

About CiCi Bean: “Today’s society puts and extreme amount of pressure on young people to look and act a certain way. CiCi Bean believes that beauty comes from the heart and we are all unique, special and beautiful. CiCi Bean has designed a clothing brand specifically for Tween girls with developing bodies and personalities. CiCi Bean aims to empower girls to accept themselves as the awesome individuals they are, while loving their beauty both on the inside and out.”

What better way to celebrate this new collection than with an event just for tween girls and their moms, all about real beauty!

Keepin’ it Real – An event for tweens!

Saturday September 15th 1:00pm- 4:00pm 
Smart Spaces Organizing, 5450 Canotek Road Unit 68
Ottawa Ontario
Presented by Vicky Bisson, Peekaboo Beans Play Stylist and Heather Burke, Smart Spaces Organizing
Event free of charge
RSVP: vickyb.stylist@peekaboobeans.com

‘Keepin it Real’ day is about self-acceptance and celebrating real beauty from the inside out. Acceptance of one’s self is the first step to real beauty. We all know how important it is to love and accept ourselves unconditionally, but this is a hard thing to do, especially when we are continually bombarded with images of what we should look like, act like and be like. So it’s up to us to step away from those images and ideals and stand up for ourselves and our tweens!

Tween girls (ages 8-14) and their moms are invited to get together on September 15th and have a conversation about real beauty! What’s the catch? No makeup allowed! We want everyone participating to celebrate themselves in their truest, most natural state of beauty!

Tweens will have the opportunity to view (and try on!) the new CiCi Bean Tween collection from Peekaboo Beans. Tweens and moms can have their photo taken together,  in their most natural, beautiful states, by Julie of Inspired Photography. They will have the opportunity to participate in a shared open and honest conversation about self-acceptance and real beauty. For example, ask yourself and ask your tween: “how do you feel when you look in the mirror with no make-up on? What do you LOVE about yourself?  What makes YOU awesome?”

Heather from Smart Space Organizing will present and facilitate a discussion on “Your Room, Your Way: talking about what matters to you in your space to both mother and daughter.” 

Light refreshments will be served. Fabulous swag bags for the first 25 tweens!

If you are in the Ottawa area, join us!
