Paperdolls in our spring attire.

One of the things I love to do most with my wee beans is to sit, color, cut and dress. There is nothing more therapeutic than the simple act of see beautiful colors pop from a clean white page, especially when all that color gets encased in cute little fine line drawings! 
Today, we are sharing the latest addition to our Peekaboo Beans paper doll collection.  Print yours HERE, just for you and your beans! 


CiCi Bean's Endless Summer!

Happy Sunday everyone! Finally, we are letting the cat outta the bag and are so proud to bring you the first peek at our Spring CiCi Bean Collection, Endless Summer. So, here is your official first look at the Spring 2013 catalog!

The theme of the CiCi Bean Spring/Summer 2013 collection is Endless Summer! The inspiration came from our memories of childhood summers. You remember the kind…where each day is filled with sun and warmth and the summer seems to last forever. There was nothing more fun than getting on your bike and riding to your best friend’s house, spending the day laying in the grass watching the clouds, laughing and talking for hours! Endless summer is all about enjoying the beautiful weather and the outdoors, spending time with friends and family, and opening your heart to store the memories made!

So fresh, so pretty, so fun!

Welcome to Endless Summer...

We are so excited we can hardly contain ourselves!! Today, we are thrilled to bring you your first look at the Peekaboo Beans Spring 2013 Collection, Endless Summer which will be available in 12 short sleeps... March 1st.

Channel your inner surfer-dude and beachy keen Bean this season! When you are a kid Summer nights seem to last forever; a time where friends come together to laugh, giggle, and play until the stars shine bright at night. Beach side campfires, sandy toes, warm breezes, and sun-kissed skin are memories that linger long after those endless Summer nights are gone.

The Peekaboo Beans “Endless Summer” collection will have you recalling memories of long hot days, building sandcastles, and digging the deepest hole in the sand that you thought would lead you to the other side of the world! Or, the times when you would bury Dad in the sand, watching the tide roll up around him and giggling all the while. This seasons fabrics are reflective of hippie tie-dye, but are made modern with flourishes of hibiscus, peace, and love all channelling through. The collection features punches of colour that shine bright with the grounding warmth of natural, beachy hues. The Peekaboo Beans Spring/Summer 2013 collection has that California beach vibe, reminiscent of days spent skim boarding, riding big waves, running barefoot in the sand, and flying kites along the shore; truly a special time where kids can just be kids.

Enjoy your first peek of Spring...

Stay tuned, as tomorrow will will bring you your first look at the gorgeous and playful CiCi Bean Spring Collection.

Silly moments from the Playground staff

This month our staff at the Peekaboo Beans Playground (that's our head office if you haven't figured it out by now) created a little game of anonymously sharing embarrassing or silly moments that occurred in our lives within the past month.  We found this was a great way to not take ourselves so seriously, to have fun, strengthen our bond and create community within our 4 Playground walls. Some of these confessions had many us rolling on the floor with laughter so we figured why not share our imperfections and crazy moments with you all...


I had a 3 year old tell me my butt stinks.
I wiped out in the parking lot in front of my daughters future school.
Going down into the splits in front of an entire class and not being able to get up.
Watch my best friend get a rather inappropriate male lap dance.
I got my silly on one weekend and ended up at Terynn's house with my lunch box full of diet Pepsi and rye, in my Tupperware container to help sell some vintage beans!
My cat started taking an interest in watching Oasis nature shows and hockey.
My hamster got loose in the house mysteriously and got behind the drywall and ran around in our ceiling. Then the next day was found sitting beside it's cage, high up on a shelf waiting to get in.
I tried to pay with a 20 pound note, in Canada.
Answering "Beyonce" to the question... Do you know who's playing at the Super Bowl?
I couldn't open the door to an all night diner FULL of people.  A lot of people could see me. LOL!
I got showed up by my Dad in a hot yoga class.  It was his first time, and I was the one dying on the floor. 
First, the coin toss came up heads. Then, Joe Flacco threw a pass that was under 9.5 yards.  Then, the first punt of the game was over 48.5 yards. Lastly, there was no score in the first 4 minutes of the second quarter. This series of events led to me winning money.  Isn't that crazy!  I think it is.  (We think it was pretty obvious as to who this one happened to!!)

Playful Beans and the meaning of LOVE

Ever wonder what the little Beans are thinking when the subject of LOVE comes up?  In their world, what does "LOVE" mean? Ever wonder? We certainly did, so... we asked our Beans.

The Power of Play

One of our lovely Peekaboo Beans Play Stylists contacted us at the Playground and shared this amazing story of her child's courage, inner strength and resilience, which came about just from the simple act of PLAY in a very uncomfortable situation.  It bought tears to our eyes, and we hope that you'll gain just as much from it as we did.  Truly, truly amazing, and reinforces that children NEED to play in order to become happy healthy human beans! 
The Power of Play Testimonial.....
I've recently discovered a passion for "play" and realized how it is so important, and wanted to share my experience....my son was medivaced to the stollery (children's hospital) last week with a problem in his bowels that required immediate attention. We were lucky and surgery was avoided but along the way he had to experience a horrible procedure and lots of pain.
When he woke up post procedure he had a big smile for me and started to play right away with his cars. I can't imagine being an adult wanting to play after experiencing that amount of pain! But he was truly happy to drive his dinky cars over the hospital bed. Later on in the surgery unit I took him to the play room. He moved his IV pole around the room like a pro to "play"!! In that short amount of time he found so much joy with all these toys and forgot where he was and why. (Yes I cried!).
I've never been so amazed by how resilient little kids are and how just a simple thing as playing could be so important! Now I know.
