I was introduced to the Peekaboo Beans clothing brand last year when I learned about their play revolution initiative and had a chance to try out one of their hoodies. This locally based company, from British Columbia, offers innovative and durable children’s playwear for little ones ages 3 months to 8 years old.
I was recently offered an opportunity to review a few Peekaboo Beans items by local Peekaboo Beans Stylist Carolee Macaulay and I was excited to receive the clothes we picked.
I was sent a pair of Navy Pier Pants, one Surf Blue On the Go Hoodie and one of their Seafoam Everyday Tees. Everything arrived beautifully folded and packaged in colorful tissue paper that looked like gift wrap, perfect when purchasing their clothes as a present.
When you have a busy toddler running around comfort is a priority when choosing what they wear everyday. So I love that the Pekaboo Beans clothes we received allow him to run, climb, jump and play comfortably. The fabrics are soft, stretchy and breathable and the fit for each piece is fantastic.
Navy Pier Pants
The Navy Pier Pants are boy pants featuring a zipper that turn them into shorts. They are made of French Terry, 95% Cotton and 5% Spandex. I love the fit and the fact that they turn into shorts so easily. Right now the full pants are too long for my son to wear so having the option to remove the bottom part is great, it means he gets to use them now and also later on as he grows taller, so practical!
These are also perfect for inconsistent weather, they can be used as shorts during the warmer months and then full pants during the colder months.
Seafoam Everyday Tee
The Everyday Tee from Peekaboo Beans looks like a classic polo shirt. I really like that it doesn’t have any buttons to deal with, making it easy for dressing your toddler. It is also easy for children to take on and off on their own.
I love the smart look of the tee and the fact that it is stretchy and comfortable. Perfect tee for layering with a sweater when it gets cooler.
Surf Blue On the Go Hoodie
The Surf Blue On the Go Hoodie is a super comfy and stretchy hoodie with an oversized hood, kangaroo pockets and thumbholes for easy layering. This hoodie is perfect for the spring and the rainy not so warm summer days in Vancouver. Then children can wear it under a rain jacket in the winter for extra warmth. I really love the detailing, larger zipper pulls for little hands and the chin guard to avoid zipper irritation.
The On the Go Hoodie is made of French Terry, 95% Cotton and 5% Spandex.
All three pieces of clothing we tried are machine washable and they are o.k. to go on the drier on low. I have washed them a couple of times and they are all still looking like new.
I am a big fan of Peekaboo Beans clothing and I will be checking out Carolee’s website frequently to browse their new collections and to purchase new pieces of clothing. A Peekaboo Beans gift certificate is also a fabulous present idea for friends and family!
