Review: Peekaboo Beans Front of the Line Dress & $40 Gift Certificate GIVEAWAY!! [CLOSED]

  • Delicious

We at Ottawa Valley Moms, were extremely excited when we were contacted by  about teaming up to do a review of one of Peekaboo Beans new fall items! It was decided that I (Crystal) would get to be the lucky recipient, and Vicky graciously offered to send an item for my almost 5 1/2 year old daughter Ava to try out! The great part is that YOU TOO can have a piece of Peekaboo Beans line for your son or daughter!! Vicky has been extra EXTRA GENEROUS, and is giving a $40 gift certificate to one of our lucky followers to put towards a Peekaboo Beans purchase! More to come of that below! :)

It was a very exciting day when an envelope with the Peekaboo Beans logo arrived in the mail! I let my daughter open it as I knew that it would contain a surprise for her! We were both very excited to see the Peekaboo Beans item that Vicky had chose was a dress, the gorgeous Front of the Line dress in Blue Violet Vibe, and Ava immediately wanted to try it on!  I have to say, before talking with Vicky, I had heard of Peekaboo Beans, but really didn’t know a lot about the company and their products other than they were intended for children. Vicky was kind enough to send along information not only on the Front of the Line dress, but on the whole company. So as Ava took off to try on her new dress, I took to reading up on what Peekaboo Beans is all about!

For those of you not familiar with it, I will give a little run down! I loved finding out that Peekaboo Beans is a Canadian company, created in Vancouver in 2006. Their clothing range from 3 months all the way up to 14 years! Instead of physical stores, Peekaboo Beans offers clients the comfort of shopping from home both online, and in the form of a ‘Beans Soiree’. A ‘soiree’ allows you to host a party with your friends and family and see all the items before you purchase in a fun and friendly atmosphere! Peekaboo Beans clothing is made to be cute and appealing to the eye, but also comfortable, practical and durable enough to last through multiple children!

Back to our Front of the Line dress! My daughter came out of her bedroom all excited! Yes it is a cute dress, but to her the biggest thrill was that it had THUMB HOLES!!! She was so excited since I have clothing with thumb holes, she too now has something with thumb holes also! I have to say, it definitely adds to the cute factor of the dress! ;) The dress looks adorable on her! My daughters favourite features are (in her words) the thumb holes, the colour, the cute ‘pea pod’ logo, and the back pocket!!

Ava is pictured here VERY excited to be trying out her new Peekaboo Beans dress!

I was very pleased how much my daughter was enjoying her new Front of the Line dress! This particular dress retails for $52 Canadian, and in addition to the Blue Violet Vibe colour we received, it also comes in Memoir Fuchsia. Once she (finally) took it off, I was able to take the tags off and look over it for myself! I have to say, right away I was impressed by all the little details Peekaboo Beans put into making and packaging this garment! The price tag for example, can be used as a bookmark. The tag on the dress itself comes off effortlessly as to not have a tag rubbing against the back of the neck, and even it has 2 children’s cartoon faces on the back to colour and cut out! They really think of everything to make the item fun, and safe! On this particular dress, there are no zippers or buttons that a child has to fuss with, nor small parts to come off or loose. My daughter’s dress is a girls size 6, and it is a little larger than what I have noticed of her other clothing, so it will last her a little while which is nice. AND! It is already preshrunk, so I don’t have to worry about it shrinking when I wash it! The fabric of the dress is a spandex-cotton blend and is super soft!

Overall, I am super thrilled with the Front of the Line Dress   that we have received! My daughter has since worn the dress multiple times, and it washed great! No piling or shrinking, just as promised! The plaid skirt of the dress has numerous colours so that we can change up the colour of the tights worn, to make it fun each time! We have gotten compliments on the dress when we were out at a restaurant when she had it on, and you can see why! Super cute, super comfy dress from Peekaboo Beans! Thanks so much !

    I've heard of the line before but have not bought anything. I would spend the $40 on something with a thumb hole my daughter loves them. I saw a cute frilly dress on her Facebook page.

    Loved the Resort dress since it answers my daughters need to wear dresses & the reality of how she plays with 3 brothers. Great dress since it can be dressed up or down with different leggings or capris & maybe a little bling :)

    Such lovely clothes!! If I were to win, I would choose something for my granddaughter; she is crawling now, but it won't be too long before she is up and running :) Perhaps the Over Yonder Pant or the cute little Laughter Jacket?! It's difficult to choose just one thing ...

    Hi. I've heard of the line before but have not bought anything. I would spend the $40 on Peekaboo Beans Snack trap ( because is hard for me to make my baby girl to eat snacks and this will be a fun way for her) and something with a thumb hole my daughter loves them!!
