Peakaboo Beans

Peekaboo Beans is a locally based company {from British Columbia} that was founded by Traci Costa back in 2006.  They offer innovative children’s playwear that is durable and high quality for children ages 3 months to 8 years old.  Right now their pieces are sold through over 100 retailers across Canada and in the United States. Pretty sweet!

I found out about Peekaboo Beans and their mission when I received an e-mail from them inviting me to join in their play revolution initiative. I am all for allowing our children lots of time for unstructured play so I knew I had to get involved

Here is what they say about it {be sure to watch their amazing video below}:

Our children are playing less than any previous generation, and this lack of play is causing them profound physical, intellectual, social and emotional harm. Experts say our kids are experiencing a PLAY DEFICIT.

Unstructured play is critical for future generations. Peekaboo Beans has a mission to raise awareness and educate parents on the importance of play. Let’s get back to play!

Definitively inspiring isn’t it?

I support their play revolution and I invite you to join them too as they raise awareness and educate parents everywhere about the importance of play time.  Please share this post and their YouTube video with your circle of friends and family!

We also got a chance to try out a hoodie from their Cheeky Monkey – Spring 2012 collection and I absolutely adore the “My Way” zip hoodie we received.  This cotton & spandex hoodie is super soft and I love its modern design.

I found the thumbholes adorable and I like the fact that the hoodie has a chin guard to avoid zipper irritation. And the best of all is that it is super comfortable for him to wear while he plays.

I must talk about the packaging because it was very unique and beautiful. It felt like I was unwrapping a present when I received it {perfect when buying it as a gift for a loved one}.  The hoodie was wrapped inside a pretty  reusable shopping bag.  Yay for eco-friendly packaging.

The hoodie is machine washable and you can tumble dry it on low as well. I have washed it a couple of times and the material is still feeling soft and looking bright.
