Everyone has little ones on their Christmas shopping list whether they be cousins, friends kids or your own. This year shop differently! Forget the hustle and bustle. Forget the long lineups and grouchy sales people. Instead grab a warm mug of your favourite drink and your computer and do you Christmas shopping from the comfort of your own home. Recently I came across and amazing children’s boutique that I just had to share with my readers!
BEANSPROUT.CA was originally founded in 1995 in Toronto, Ontario. After 16 successful years as a brick and mortar store, the owner Trisha Haddad embraced the online market and closed the store in 2011.
BEANSPROUT.CA is now solely an online store!
Trisha Haddad, owner, was born and raised in Toronto and has a passion about bright, colourful clothing and she personally chooses each item she includes in her store. Each item is scrutinized based on its style, quality, wear-ability and price to ensure her customers are receiving the best products available for children on the market.
BEANSPROUT.CA has won many awards for providing unique and quality children clothing. It was voted The Best Children’s Clothing Store in Toronto, listed as one of Toronto’s Top 200 Shops by Toronto Life Magazine and featured on The Mom Show.
I was given the opportunity to test out two of her most popular selling products on my DD1.
Buttoncini Onesie – Size 18 months (size range 6-24m $29.99 ~ NOW ON SALE! $23.99)
This adorable long sleeve organic onesie is made by designer Sheila Provenzano in her Toronto Studio. The applique is made from a soft cotton materia that was locally sourced. The ruffles and rosettes are cotton jersey which allows them to stretch and move with baby.
My daughter loved this onesie right away! She loved the gorgeous 3D rosettes and the soft muted colours of the photograph. Putting the onesie on was a breeze. Unfortunately, my children have large melons! I like to think that they large heads are needed to host their smart brains, but I think its a trait passed along thanks to my HUSBAND! Usually, I tend to buy onsies or t-shirts with large neck openings or buttons so that there is extra give when pulling the shirt over their heads. The Buttoncini Onesie was designed in such away that it can compensate for larger heads but has the ability to readjust so that the shirt doesn’t look loose around the neck.
My favourite part of the Buttoncini Onesie was the materials used to create the outfit. The main body of the onesie was soft and gentle against my DD1 sensitive skin. The adorable ruffles on the bottom of the onesie adds a girly flare that can dress up any skirt its paired with and the 3D rosettes provide a depth often lost in many children outfits found in departments stores.
Jamie Rae Hat ~ Size 0-18 months (Size range 0-6- years $24.99)
Jamie Rae hats have become a favourite accessory for little ones by moms across the globe because of their comfortable design, practicality and fabulously crazy fun fashionality! These hats are great for photo shoots or simply putting a smile on someones face! They are so popular that they are hard to keep in stock!
DD1 wasn’t so sure about the hat to begin with. As with an item I place on her head, her immediate reaction is to yank it off. Once I placed it on her head and distracted her with another activity to take her mind off the hat, she left it on for hours. It seemed to be so comfortable that she didn’t remember it was on!
I fell in love with this hat when I first viewed it on the BEANSPROUT.CA
website! When I was given the chance to test this product I was excited! There are many adorable hats on the market for little girls, but most of them don the five petaled flower. The thing I liked most about the Jamie Rae Hat was the cotton candy pink fluff! It is unique, stylish and adds a sense of dramatic flare to any outfit!
