Peekaboo Beans

Function – in addition to fun

Since Traci began Peekaboo Beans nearly 10 years ago, the company has focused on the functionally, safety and wearability of their playwear, in addition to designing cute, comfortable pieces for your little Beans. Children’s clothes can be so fussy. Little snaps, copious buttons, pinchy, itchy parts – and sticky zippers. This makes it difficult for kids to nurture independence and manage their own clothing. Peekaboo Beans clothes are made to match a child’s development both physical and social. Below are some of the features Peekaboo Beans playwear has to make kid’s lives easy with more time for play. Playwear is also suitable for kids with sensitive skin or sensory processing disorders.

Custom quality fabrics: Peekaboo Beans fabrics are in line with Oeko-Tex Standard 100. A comfy yet durable cotton spandex blend is great daily wear and safe on sensitive skin. The Oeko-Tex Standard 100 certification system ensures fabrics have no carcinogenic dyes, no heavy metals and no dangerous finishes to make fabrics stain resistant or wrinkle free.

Flat lock stitching: Minimized irritation on your little Bean’s skin plus the comfort of no added bulk when layering

Pre-Shrunk: To avoid surprises and ensure a perfect fit.

Grow With Me Piece: Styles designed to adapt and grow with your Beans and ensure they get the most out of their favourite pieces.

Soft Removable Labels: No itchy necks and fussy tags

A-line Shape: To provide comfort for little buddah bellies

No Small Parts: No buttons or snaps. All zippers are fused together to prevent breaking off and being swallowed. Chewed or caught.

Wash and Wear: Tacked down pockets for great washability and reinforcement

Versatility: Convertible styles for quick decisions and busy, active lifestyles.

Thumb holes: Prevent sleeves from riding up and keep chills out, enabling children to layer hoodies & jackets over t-shirts with ease as they avoid bunching of the sleeves

Tangle free: No loose ends to get caught while playing

Twill tape hem: To stabilize the garment and hold hem in place, making washing a breeze

Chin guards: To cover the ends of zippers and avoid pinching little chins when zipping up

Drawstring: For tiny waists and easy off and on approach when learning to potty train or doing quick changes.
