Playful living makes happier humans.
Play creates happier, healthy human “beans,” the effects of which are carried well into adulthood. Children remind us of what’s most important in life and that all people are happier and healthier when they make time and space for play, self-care and fun in their lives.
That is why our mission is to design for playful living.

PK Beans started as a grassroots company 14 years ago in Richmond, British Columbia.
After struggling with years of unexplained infertility, founder Traci Costa and her husband were blessed to conceive their first child through in vitro fertilization. Reveling in the joys of parenting, Traci found herself wondering why children’s clothing was so fussy and didn’t support children’s developmental, physical and social requirements. Learning more about play and the key role it plays in early childhood development, Traci set out to create clothing that allowed children to play freely, all while being comfortable, durable, and stylish.
Fast forward to today and we now have a community of parents across North America who are just as passionate as us about our product and spreading the important message of the benefits of play for children.
Did you know? The original company name, Peekaboo Beans, was inspired by a game Traci played with her first daughter and their favourite snack, edamame.
