Okay, so I have an addiction to high quality baby items…ranging from strollers to diaper bags to of course – clothes. Don’t get me wrong, my children wear every brand under the sun. I’m not opposed to getting a bargain and I excitedly accept any form of hand-me-downs! But you have to admit, there is something nice about getting an item that’s been designed with every detail in mind. So, when I heard about Peekaboo Beans (and who doesn’t love that name?) I was instantly curious. After looking at the website and finding out how dedicated this company is to their line of clothing, I was hooked!
There are so many things that make Peekaboo Beans a superior company, to highlight them all would take a while, so I’ll go through my favourite aspects. The company is genuine, from their mission statement right through to the designs. They wanted to create clothes that are fun, durable and most importantly comfortable enough for kids to get outside and be kids! The clothes are built to last, pre-shrunk and contain no chemicals. The cost may be a little more upfront, I’m not going to lie, but you get what you pay for and more. If hand-me-downs are in your vocabulary then you can bet this brand will look new when the next little gets it. My girls are 20 months apart, so this is a definite perk for me.
And check out these details!
Zippers (if any) have a chin guard at the top to avoid pinching. Which is good because if you’ve ever caught a tiny chin in the zipper, you know how unforgiving they can be.!
Sleeves have a thumb hole to help avoid bunching and to keep hands warm.
The Over Under Leggings are made so they can be worn capri style or as a pant. Perfect for all season wear or days when you really don’t know what the weather is going to do!
The labels are made to be removed completely so there is no scratching. This concerned me at first, in regards to having hand-me-downs. I was worried that I wouldn’t know the size with no label, but Peekaboo Beans thought of that too and hid a tiny label with the size on it (placed in an area that won’t scratch or bother!)
The oh-so-cute logo is embroidered on the clothes, this is a detail I love. Also, each piece also comes with a nicely designed card tag.
I ordered 7 pieces…5 for Bee (my eldest) and only 2 for WeeBee, since she receives the hand-me-downs. The I Heart Hoodie is probably my favourite. It’s the perfect jacket for spring and fall here in Canada, I ordered a size bigger for Bee so she can hopefully get TWO years of wear out of it before it goes to WeeBee. I also ordered the Pretty Pony Dress, 3 pairs of the Over Under Leggings (varying colours and sizes) and 2 Tunic Tops.
Important…my girls opinions
Bee thought these clothes were ‘beautiful’, she was instantly drawn to the bright colours. Her favorite piece was the Carousel Tunic, a close second – the Over Under Leggings, she loved the bright colours and feel of the clothes. I was surprised just how much she enjoys wearing them. They fit loose, which is another detail this brand offers, they are loose to “provide comfort for little Buddha bellies”. WeeBee looked absolutely adorable in her Lioness Tunic and matching Over Under Leggings. She is a petite 1 year old so I feel like she might get two summers of wear out of this tunic!
