Peekaboo Beans Summer 2016 Collection
Since winter has pretty much rolled into summer in my neck of the woods, my other half are beginning to scramble to make sure they have the right clothing. We want to make sure they are comfortable in this warm weather, yet not grow out of the pieces so they can last all season long. Peekaboo Beans asked if I would like to have my kids try out clothing from their Summer 2016 collection to see if they could sprout and play with ease! I was excited to take this challenge since my kids are very active, and it seems as though they have made burning through clothing into a sport.
Peekaboo Beans is on a mission to promote active play for children. This is why so much care into the clothing they create. Their clothing is also made for comfort so play is effortless for kids while wearing them. Custom quality fabrics are comfy yet durable. Flat-lock stitching is used to cause less irritation against or to add extra bulk to the clothing. Each piece is pre-shrunk and designed to grow with little ones so wash after wash, they will fit well and kids can wear them longer.
These are the pieces my daughter received to review:
- Summer Sweetie Tee
- Tidal Pool Dress (in Purple)
- All Day Shorts
My son got to try out the following pieces:
- Keep It Cool Tank
- Amusement Shorts
My little beans went nuts when they saw the outfits picked out for them from the Peekaboo Beans 2016 Summer Collection! The colours were rich and vibrant, and the fabric felt as though it could take my kids for quite a few days of rough and tumble play indoors and out. They could not wait to try them on.
My daughter is constantly asking us to wear her outfit! She looked as cool as the ice cream cone on her Summer Sweetie Tee. It looked sweet and allowed her to run around our backyard without confining her arms with sleeves. She was so proud to show it off to anyone who saw it.
My diva’s favourite part of her outfit had to be the Tidal Pool Dress. She loves being in it. The fit allowed her to play and explore without cutting her off, and the skirt of the dress let her twirl around or run as fast as she wanted to with feeling confined. The All Day Shorts are cute and perfect to wear under dresses. The soft jersey fabric made it so she barely even noticed she was wearing them, and they allowed her to be herself without worrying about what was underneath her skirt or dress!
My little tyke adored his Keep It Cool Tank! The relaxed fit of this top let him move and play like the action hero he loves portraying. He also loves sporting the Lead coloured hood for that look of danger and fun!
My son really enjoyed wearing his Amusement Shorts as well! They are colourful yet understatedly so. They are also lightweight, so digging for buried treasure or biking is done effortlessly.
What I loved about clothing from Peekaboo Beans are in the details. No zippers to content with make it easy for my kids to slip their clothes on and off. Care tags that are soft and hanging make it fun for kids to wear or to remove without ruining the integrity of the piece. Oh, and the added details of extra lining around the bottom hem of shirts for comfort or bows on clothing put to finish off a piece right puts a smile on my face.
I think a great indication of whether a brand is highly recommended is when both children and parents become excited about using it over and over again. That is exactly how we feel when they wear their outfits from Peekaboo Beans. We all love the look and feel of each piece, and feel sad when it is time to put them in the wash. The fit is amazing, and these clothes will allow them to do what comes naturally to kids: sprout and play!
