My kids ask for bean bag chairs like they ask for pets: eagerly and often.
And I always wanted to get them their own chairs — really I did — but it’s hard to know whether paying for the really pricey ones is worthwhile, and if you get the $20 job from your neighbourhood big box store, I worry about gazillions of tiny little beads exploding in my house. (And I’m no neat freak but the idea of gazillions of beads exploding in my house isn’t exactly a visual I’m hot on.)
It was good timing, then, when Lazy-Life Paris offered to send us their wares. We choose the monster “XL,” which is suitable for both indoors and outdoors.
Lazy-Life Paris’s XL bean bag chair is, actually, extra-extra-large. When it’s flat on the ground, both kids can fit on it quite comfortably. When we have it in the rec room in front of the TV, The K Man and I sit on it together to play the WiiU. Even Big B can get in and out of it with all of the grace that anyone who’s 6’6″ and nearly 300 pounds can muster.
You can tell it’s not going to bust open — it’s got quality stitching (and a lot of it), and the fabric is really heavy duty.
Lots of plain and fun(ky) colours and patterns available for all of Lazy-Life Paris’s products, including the Union Jack!
Shipping is pretty cheap considering the size of this thing: only $14.99 to my address, which is in a different province from Lazy-Life’s distribution centre.
I love that this bean bag chair is rugged enough to come poolside with us — it’s great to add extra seating, especially for the kids we always have mucking about.
Oh, hey, LOOK: Until August 1, 2015, Lazy-Life Paris is offering 20 per cent off any order if you use the code mommygearest at checkout!
It’s $225, and that’s not inexpensive. But my expectation is that this is something The K Man can take away with him to university 10 years from now, so when you do the math on the cost-per-use, it’s less than $25 per year if it lasts a decade.
