Peekaboo Beans: 5 ways they are different

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.

Here are 5 reasons why Peekaboo Beans are different!

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!

Peekaboo Beans Play Stylists love playing!

This family day weekend, three Peekaboo Beans Play Stylists headed out to Funatorium Explorium Family Extravaganza, a three day long event geared to children AND parents  playing together! Funatorium could not have been a better fit for us to represent Peekaboo Beans. At Peekaboo Beans, we believe that play is integral to childhood development, and that all kids need play for optimal growth and development!

I loved watching families playing together at Funatorium this weekend.  Whether they were having stacking cup races, building lego towers, plasma car races or bouncing around in the Body zorbs, everyone had a great time!  When we play WITH our children, we are setting an example for them and encouraging them to engage in their own creative play. What better role models than parents to show our kids just how much fun it is to play!

It was a great weekend, and it was such a pleasure talking to families about the importance of play and how Peekaboo Beans can fit into their lives! How did you play this family day weekend?

Here are some great photos of the event from my friend Sara Mcconnell Photography.

The playdate Soirée

I remember being on maternity leave with my son and meeting a mom who told me she absolutely loathed having playdates. Something about the small talk with other moms you don’t know well, the chaos of kids and the whirlwind of toys left behind that wasn’t appealing to her. I could never really understand why though, because for me a playdate is is just as beneficial for me as a mom as it is for my kids!

Playdates were always a great opportunity to be around other moms who were going through the same experiences as I was. Whether it was someone else to talk about how to get my baby to sleep through the night, or what preschool programs were best, having someone else to bounce tips and tricks of parenting around with was so important to me.  It was also great company for those long days of being home alone with a baby.

But it was also so amazing to watch our kids grow together – we’d line them up on the couch and take monthly photos to see how they were growing. Our playdates always involved coffee and food too!

Now that all these babies are older, our playdates have changed.  They don’t happen as often, and are a little bit louder, but they are just as rewarding for me and the kids. I get to catch up with friends, and my kids have playmates to get lost in imaginations with! They play dress up, or play with playmobile, or run around making up their own games (and messes!)

Since becoming a Peekaboo Beans Play Stylist, playdates have taken on a whole new meaning. When I’m at a Playdate Soirée,  I really enjoy watching the kids get excited about trying on clothing and modeling outfits for each other. I also enjoy listening to other moms share those familiar stories of sleepless nights and how to creatively hide veggies in food! The Playdate Soiree is just one more opportunity for moms to get together with their kids and enjoy an afternoon of chatting, catching up, playing and shopping!

A Peekaboo Beans Playdate Soirée is a personal shopping experience where you can view the entire  Peekaboo Beans award winning playwear collection … while your kids play!  You can host a Soirée in your home and earn free clothing for your own children. The whole thing takes about 2-3 hours, and is a lot of fun. I arrive with my samples and display to set up 30-45 mins ahead of time. Then your guests, friends and neighbours would arrive to view the collection. I don’t usually do a formal presenation, just a quick demonstration of some of the great product features that your kids will love.  The best part is the FREE clothing  that you’ll earn – up to 25% of the sales in free clothing as well as 4 half priced items! It’s a great way to outfit your kids for the season, in a shopping experience  that meets your needs and your schedule.

Yes I’d love to host a Playdate Soirée!
