Jeans for the kids who hate jeans!

Do you have a favourite pair of jeans? How many pairs are in your closet? Personally, I haven’t worn jeans in years. The last time I tried some on, they were so uncomfortable – stiff, restrictive and itchy!

I can empathize with the kids who hate jeans. My daughter is one of those kids. She prefers that all her clothes be super soft and cozy. For active kids, who love to move, run and jump while they play, wearing restrictive jeans can impeded on their play!

Do these jeans look comfortable?

Peekaboo Beans has once again come to the rescue with our new Bean Jeans! They are the perfect Hangout Pants!  beanjeansThey look like jeans, but FEEL like cozy, soft sweat pants! Plus, they have our signature thick elastic waist band,which means there are no buttons or fly to fumble with!


And knowing that kids can be hard on their clothing, these styles feature reinforced knees!

All the look and style of a great pair of jeans in a new custom-developed Bean Jean fabric that is soft, stretchy and Bean approved.
These pants have all the features of our typical pants such as elastic, drawstring waistband and faux fly, as well as reinforeced knees. This fabric is designed to wash and wear like regular denim so fading is normal.

Playing dress up

A couple of weeks ago I had the pleasure of working with Sara Mcconnell photography on a  Peekaboo Beans photoshoot! We headed out to Petrie Island, found a great little corner close to a pond, and set out some vintage inspired props. Here’s the result, I think Sara did a fantastic job capturing the essence of the line.

Fall 2011 collection launch – and sample sale

When I graduated from Teacher’s College 3 years ago, my first job was as a preschool teacher at Gymboree Play and Music! What I loved about working at Gymboree was being able to teach parents how to engage with their children in a playful and meaningful way. Whether it was pretending we were on a safari adventure or making a gourmet breakfast, I really enjoyed watching parents interact with their children in such a fun environment.

I’m thrilled to be working with Gymboree again to bring you the Fall 2011 Peekaboo Beans collection launch! Be the first in Ottawa to see the My Family Tree collection at a FREE Gymboree Play & Music event!

You will be able to place a pre-order, or pick up some great deals on Spring 2011 samples at 40% off (cash & carry). While you shop, your kids can take part in some FREE Gymboree fun! Explore during a Play Gym from 3:00-6:15pm or join the fun with a Family Gymboree class from 6:15-7:00pm both FREE! Classes are perfect for children ages 0-6 years.

Picture of Play: In the zone

Each week I will share with you a picture that I have found that inspires complete inhibited play in children. Providing children with opportunities for unstructured play is one of Peekaboo Bean’s founding pillars.

Play fosters creativity, flexibility, and learning and can be seen as the doorway to learning. It opens our minds to imagination, helps us learn to solve problems and adapt to new situations. Play makes us curious, which can lead to discovery and enhanced creativity.

When I saw this photo below, taken from a child’s perspective playing on the living room floor, it reminded me of something we often say at our house:

“When he’s in the zone, leave him alone.”

Joel often falls into this zone of play, where he is focused and intent on the imaginary world he has created. Whether it’s with cars, blocks, or Tim Horton gift cards (which he’s been known to use as cars!), he can stay lost in his imagination for long periods of time! I’d love to a glimpse into his imagination and see what actually is going on in there!
