We have just recently added bean bags to Modern Tots. Our first brand to be added is appropriately called Sit On It. In reality, you can do a lot more than just sit on this variety of bean bag! They offer pretty large bean bags that you can really lounge and lay down, like The Original.
We offer several styles of the Sit On It bean bags, but we were lucky enough to receive a Tryangle bean bag in the color Fruity Orange to get a feel for the product. The Triangle bean bag is the perfect size for small kids. In fact our 2 yr old and 4 yr old can both fit on it at the same time pretty comfortably, although it doesn’t last very long without some sort of pushing going on. When they sit on it by themselves, it is the perfect size for them to plop down and get cozy. They like to sit down and lay back a little and it just kind of forms around their bodies and supports them. Very comfortable. It is great for reading and relaxing, and also perfect for movie time.
One of the the first things that I noticed about The Tryangle, when I pulled it out of the box, is that the material of the “bag” is good quality. It is very durable and you can tell just by feeling it, that it will easily resist spills and stains (which we also tested), a must for having small children. I was a little worried at first that this would make the bean bag less comfortable, but after trying it out myself, I soon realized that this was not the case. The material of the bean bag, also allows for outdoor use. One thing that I was not so fond of about the material, is that it has a little static cling to it, so that pet hair, dust etc sticks to it a little on the bottom. This is no big deal. It easily wipes off with a lent cloth and I will also mention that the outer bag is machine washable in cases of emergency, although it is not recommended. To do so, you have to take all of the beans out and contain them, which is not so easy.
I have made a reading corner in my son’s room with an Aero Bookcase and Tryangle bean bag. He loves it!
One last thing to mention, do not throw out the box it comes in too fast, because my two had a lot of fun with it for several days. It was their “house” and it kept them busy for some time. Well worth hanging on to it for a little while.
