Beba Bean began its business by solving a piddly diapering problem parents of boys know all too well — avoiding getting showered by the fountain of youth! After the birth of her second child, Alex, Lisa Malcic noticed that no product existed to prevent wee willie’s weeing all over her and her husband, Peter. Thus, she was inspired to create the Pee-pee Teepee™, the topper that conveniently contains old faithful’s trouble that starts with a “P”!

“You have a gifted imagination,” is a praise-worthy complement that young children used to hear a lot from teachers and parents. Before the current home computer, video gaming, and iPod revolution, generations of kids were inspired by dawn-to-dusk outdoor neighborhood adventures and creative play with blocks, models, “army” men, tea parties, crafts and board games.

The store is a kid’s dream playroom filled with traditional wooden toys, puzzles, games and more.
