5 Things We Are Not...

5 Things We Are Not...

Our store has changed a lot in the 15 years since we opened, but our basic mission has stayed the same. What is that? Sometimes it's easiest to explain what we are not.

1. We aren't everything to everybody. Unlike big box stores and internet behemoths, we are a curated store. We use our experience as parents and years of customer feedback to offer the best products available. And, if a product doesn't support attachment parenting or connect with the natural world, you won't find it in our store.

2. We aren't just pink vs. blue. Kids aren't color-coded and toys shouldn't be either.

Millie & Ellie3. We are not alone. We depend on a community of toymakers, publishers, bankers, accountants, etc. Many of these are local businesses, which means a lot what you spend with us stays right here in Minnesota. This is also true of all the other amazing local indie retailers in the Twin Cities.

4. We're not planning to take over the world anytime soon. Our goal has always been to make our one little store the best it can possibly be.

5. We are not invulnerable. We need your support! If you like our store, please tell your friends or post a review. We truly appreciate your business and your continued support!

Thank you from Millie and Dan all of us here at Peapods.

Rainbow ChewbeadsDid you see our new
Rainbow Chewbeads?

We asked the folks at Chewbeads to make these a while ago and now they're finally here.

Chewbeads are made out of 100% silicone and are soft on your baby's gums and emerging teeth. They're great as a sensory tool to help babies focus while nursing and as a colorful toy while babywearing that won't get lost. They're pretty darn snazzy, too.
