Local Handmade Product Review: Bean & Bear Shoppe

Local Handmade Product Review: Bean & Bear Shoppe

I recently had the opportunity to review 2 products made by Bean & Bear Shoppe.

The first was the Bapron.

Over the years I’ve tried many unstylish, uncomfortable plastic bibs and ill fitting homemade ones.

Nothing seemed to cover clothing adequately and remain comfortable for little ones while containing the mess.

Until now!!

So much more than a bib – a Bapron is the perfect solution.

It’s the only bib you’ll ever need. They are made with high quality playful & stylish patterned fabric. The possibilities are endless! Custom orders are welcome. 

There are 2 sizes of Bapron available, under 18lbs, and the larger size fits 18lbs+. One thing I really love about them – they double as an art smock!

For the review, I tested the same Bapron on Stephen (age 1), Clayton (age 2) & Alexis (age 5). It fit all 3 great.

I also loved that it doesn’t require special care when washing. Just pop it in the washer.

They cost $15 each, 2 for $27 or your choice of 3 for $40.

The other product I got to test was the Giraffe Baby Rattle.


This soft & fun toy features the same colourful fabrics, a rattle inside and “tags” for the baby to explore. Stephen is 1 and loves this toy. We bring it everywhere in his diaper bag. 


She also makes teething rings.

Description:  I treat every natural maple wood teething ring in organic coconut oil so you know what your baby is chewing on. Coconut oil to soothes baby’s gums and crinkle material and bright colors will keep them busy. Fabric and Minky are soft on babys hands and face while stimulating the senses. Hand or machine wash on gentle cycle, easy to tie back on! Available in any of our fabric selections.  IMG_4817.JPG

The 3 items together make an excellent baby shower / new baby gift!
