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 Winter Bliss
Available in Purple Passion or Charcoal (shown)

I’ve been reading a lot about sensory issues lately, and today I came across something that made me think.
The Sensory Processing Disorder Parent Support Network posted on their page: How many kiddos here are never thirsty? Or always thirsty? Always hungry or never hungry?
My 6 year old son Joel has a sense of urgency about eating and drinking. He doesn’t seem to notice that he’s thirsty or hungry (or that he needs to pee for that matter) until it is the ABSOLUTE last second! Just like another person who posted on the thread, I’m not sure Joel feels it until he is extremely hungry or thirsty. Today was such a roller coaster ride of ups and downs that all came down to a late breakfast, a later lunch, and not enough snacks or drinks. After I had realized that his explosive meltdown and ensuing laying under the dining room table was related to him being too hungry. I asked him why he didn’t just ask me for a snack. His response? He wanted me to just know that he was hungry without actually telling me? I need to work on being better prepared with snacks on the weekends.
As for peeing, I think most of the time it’s just that he’s too busy playing to take the time to run to the bathroom. So when he does go, it’s a mad dash and panic to get to the toilet before he explodes!
Do your kids tend to have an urgency around eating, drinking and peeing?

Our Director of Play and Founder Traci Costa recently shared this message in our monthly Beans Bulletin. It was a message I can so relate to, as I’ve been there – in a job that I was miserable in for far too long. I’m so fortunate to now be doing something that I love! Owning my own business as a Play Stylist brings me so much joy. Read Traci’s message about we can have it all; a job we love, a family too, and the best working environment in the world :
“How many of you had dreaded going to a job, have cringed when the alarm goes off, felt sad to miss out on an important event in your Beans lives. Or maybe you have a job that you love, but want something to channel your inner entrepreneur, a creative or social outlet, to be part of your community, to make something yours.
At some point, we have all been there. Paid our dues, put in our time for someone else, learned our lessons, worked hard, had a boss that didn’t treat people right. I have been there. It is one of the reasons I am so passionate about creating a working opportunity for women, and particularly for mothers. Why can’t work be fun, why can’t we make a difference, why can’t we embrace the people, create goals, achieve them in business and personally. Why can’t we be a stand for the best work environments for mothers, at the Playground or by creating self employment opportunities for women and mothers everywhere.
So I say it again, find what you do, and it will never feel like a day of work ever……create your own destiny, be your own boss, join a family that cares. Peekaboo Beans cares. I care.
So here I am today, asking you to help make a difference in the world, with me. Together. Let’s be the change. Lets:
- Be a reminder everyday to give children space, time and freedom to find themselves, to find their strengths, weaknesses, and to fall down and get back up. Play is their work. Play is what children do when we stop telling them what to do, where to be, or who to be with.
- Be a stand for a quality product – by choosing a Company that respects our customer’s money and values that they want to spend their hard earned dollars on our product. A Company that thinks about the way children move, jump, bend, run, skip, and play, but also fosters independence. A Company that believes in children and thinks about what is best for them. A Company that puts family first. A product that is quality and not consumable. Produced with love and care.
- Be a stand for creating the best working environments that fosters people, values, and gives back and is socially responsible.
We can have all this, we can do all this. All we have to do is share our story, share our passion. All we have to do is believe. But we have to do this together. One vine. Standing together through thick and thin. I will continue to spread the joy, to be a stand for our product and be a stand for my Beans and yours.
In love and play,
