The best children's clothing available on the market today. We are passionate about play! Shop with me or join our amazing team of Play Stylists!
My grandparents were both entrepreneurs. They owned two high-end women’s clothing boutiques in Toronto, and my grandmother designed and fabricated the clothing in the basement workshop. It was called Boutique D’Olivier, after my grandfather. I remember as a child going to visit her at the store. She would give me bags of fabric scraps that I would turn into crafts when I got home.
I wonder sometimes if this is where my entrepreneurial bug came from. I absolutely love being one. The pot is even more sweetened by the fact that my business is as a Peekaboo Beans Stylist. I love the clothing, and being able to market and promote them in creative ways. I love our company philosophy about putting families first and changing the opportunities for mothers to work in an environment that also supports their first role as mom. I love the enthusiasm from my team and my colleagues at our Playground (head office), and how much we support each other in growing our businesses!
Three years ago my journey into the entrepreneurial world began when my friend Lara and I built an online children’s clothing boutique. We spent hours building our brand, choosing the inventory we would carry, and marketing it online. It was such a valuable learning experience for me, I’m still using the skills I learned as I run my Stylist business.
While running our shop, we often ran into other moms thinking about starting up a biz, but feeling daunted and intimiated by the whole process. What I love about being able to share the Peekaboo Beans business with other moms is that essentially all the hard work is done for them! When you start your business as a Stylist, you are becoming a team member of an already established busines. The business plan is in place, all that you need to get yourself going is a few business supplies, a positive attitude and a goal to work toward.
Wherever this journey as a Stylist is taking me, I am completely hooked and loving it. I experience so many moments of joy as I am learning to be a better leader, a more effective business owner, and a passionate entrepreneur. I want nothing more than to share this passion and the entrepreneurial bug with others!
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:
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,

Not many people know the story behind Peekaboo Beans and how it got started. It was started in 2006 by Traci Costa; the name the name came from a game that Traci played with her daughter Cailin to encourage healthy eating – playing “peek-a-boo” with edamame beans. With her sister-in-law and one fashion intern by her side, Traci began designing concepts for a new line of clothing made for kids and their parents.
Traci was blessed with another little girl Colbie, born in 2008. Now with her girls, ages 3 and 8, she is a strong proponent of “free play” because of the benefits Traci feels it has on children’s development. In 2010, Traci was recognized as one of Business In Vancouver’s Forty under 40! Traci and her team continue to evolve and to expand the Peekaboo Beans collections, while maintaining their passion for providing ingredients for a playful life. They hope that you love the clothes as much as they do. They are always open to new design ideas, concepts, thoughts and invite you to join the Peekaboo Beans Family.
