Peekaboo Beans has been a large part of my life for the past 5 years. The journey began in 2007 when I first came across the brand online, and brought in a few pieces of the collection in my online children’s boutique. A year and a half ago, I switched gears from a retailer and became a Play Stylist and Ambassador with Peekaboo Beans. Over 5 years I have see Peekaboo Beans grow from a budding home-based operation, into an expanding business changing the way we dress our children, and the way we think about play, all while giving mothers an opportunity to own their own businesses.
I can’t tell you just how excited I was when the opportunity to visit the Peekaboo Beans Playground came up in October. I flew out to visit Traci, our Director of Play and PB’s founder, Amber & Kristen our other two Ambassadors, and to finally meet everyone that has been working so hard to make Peekaboo Beans what it is today. My visit was action packed, and truly left me changed. Over three days I had the chance to tour our head office and warehouse and meet everyone at the Playground! I got a sneak peek of some upcoming product launches and learned firsthand just what’s involved with getting all of your orders out the door and into your beans’ hands. I learned so much about our company’s culture, our vision and our goals, and took part in some planning sessions with our staff.
There was a warm welcome as we entered the doors, followed by lots of hugs as I finally had the chance to meet the amazing women (and Derrick!) that I’ve been working with for so long. After some training sessions, we had our hair styled in the Peekablo-tique. This little bit of pampering was a taste of our future, working for a company who stands for working moms and woman having it all. Next came a tour around the Playground, some team building with Playground staff and education on our systems and processes. The day wrapped up with a limo tour around Vancouver!
On our second day we took part in some goal setting sessions, had a chance to meet other Play Stylists in the Vancouver area (including Candy Sethi on my team, photo in the centre below), and then were treated to a night out at Traci’s home for dinner and dessert.
The day started off with morning yoga, one of the many perks of working at the Playground. The Ambassadors then took part in a meeting on building business one sprout at a time through recruiting. The day ended with a graduation ceremony, and lots of sad goodbyes (and happy beginnings!)
One of the biggest take-aways from my visit to Peekaboo Beans was realizing that we are on our way to becoming the greatest children’s clothing brand in the world, and I am so excited to be part of our growth! I can’t wait until I can go back again!

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!
Saturday September 15th 1:00pm- 4:00pm
Smart Spaces Organizing, 5450 Canotek Road Unit 68
Presented by Vicky Bisson, Peekaboo Beans Play Stylist and Heather Burke, Smart Spaces Organizing
Event free of charge
‘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!

Tonight I had coffee with a wonderful new mom, and chatted about what it means to be a Peekaboo Beans Play Stylist! I loved sharing my passion for the company, the products and the importance of play. It’s always such a great feeling to introduce Peekaboo Beans to someone and have them become just as excited about the products as I am.
For this new mom, Peekaboo Beans would be an opportunity to do something different, creative and energizing, all while generating some great extra income.

When I first got my hands on some Peekaboo Beans five years ago, I used to save Joel’s outfits for special occasions, not wanting them to get dirty or wrecked. Then I gave my head a shake. Why was I saving it? His Peekaboo Beans were meant for PLAYING IN!
So I took them out of the closet, and let him wear them! They were durable to withstand all his crawling around on all fours, dashing over tall buildings and slaying dragons. His Peekaboo Beans were the first thing pulled out of the dryer, and always requested! I loved how comfortable he was in the stretchy fabrics.
Joel’s clothing was washed and rewashed dozens of times before he out grew it. If he had a brother, they would have been passed along to him too. I still have nearly all of his outfits saved in a box in his closet. I just cannot bear to part with them. Every once in a while I take them out of the box and refold them, checking to see if there is anything I might be able to squeeze on to him one last time.
1. CHILDREN pick their own clothing – Peekaboo Beans encourages independent dressing!
2. CHILDREN wear them without help – wide elastic waists are easy to pull up, zipper pulls are childsized, and there are no buttons or fastners to fumble with.
3. PLAY and MOVEMENT is unrestricted – fabrics are soft and stretchy for maximum comfort.
4. MOMS love them because they wash, dry, and wear so easily!
5. YOU can resell your loved Peekaboo Beans on our Vintage Beans Facebook group – NOTHING lasts longer than a day on the page, and the average piece is sold in approximately 5 minutes!
Where else can you get such durability, longevity, and return on your children’s clothing? Try it, I know you’ll love it! Contact me to order today: firstname.lastname@example.org or find out how you too can be a Stylist!
Today is a big day for Peekaboo Beans. A project that we have been working on for months is now ready for us to share with you. What is our goal? Simply – we want children to play. Free from rules, free from structure, space to learn and grow…. This video is our message….from our Beans – to you.
Today marks the launch of our PLAY REVOLUTION, an awareness campaign designed to educate people on the importance of play for childhood development.
What do we ask, give 3 minutes of your time and share this with your friends. If we can get to 5000 views, Peekaboo Beans will donate $1000.00 to Playgroundbuilders.org to fund the building of playgrounds in war torn countries. Together – we can make a difference.
