Hallways produce some great and affordable home furnishing items and their cotton kids beanbag chair promises to be another great offering from this UK based company. It lists for about £25 and related shipping costs are minimal. This bean bag chair looks to be the perfect solution for additional seating in your house that is also perfectly suitable for young children and kids. We took a look at its quality, durability and comfort to see if it is worth investing in.
This cotton black bean bag chair features a bean bag fill that is shaped into a seat – complete with backrest and arms. The entire chair is covered with a black cotton cover with a hidden zipper. The chair measures 50 x 60 x 60 centimetres and holds 6 cubic feet of fill. The fill is included and already inside the chair itself upon arrival – so no set up, on your part, is needed. The fabric and fill all meet the 1988 Safety Regulations for Children’s Furniture, so you can be sure of your child’s safety and that of your home as well.
So, What’s It Like?
This chair is perfectly sized for the smaller members of your household who will love that it is soft and squishy – but holds and supports them as firmly as a chair would. Once it arrives, all you have to do is remove it from the packing, shake it ‘into shape’ and it is ready to go. The deep back and high arms allow your child to fit snugly inside, and you don’t have to worry about them spilling drinks while sitting in it as the cover zips off easily and is sponge washable.
The seams are double stitched and hold up to the inevitable jumping up and down and bouncing around that is highly likely to occur (they are kids after all!). Best of all, the black cotton cover allows it to fit in with other furniture units without screaming that it’s a piece of ‘kiddie furniture’ that could easily take over a room’s appearance.
Some Small Negatives
The main complaint about the chair doesn’t really have to do with the chair itself, but how the company has worded the listing. If you are not paying attention, you won’t see that this is deemed a “children’s chair.” It is not sized for an adult – or even a teen. The other common complaint was that it was not shaped as it is in the photo, that problem stems from a lack of instructions that you need to turn the chair upside down and shake it to spread the fill evenly after you remove it from the packaging.
Is it a good buy for kids?
In a word – yes. This chair is well made and durable enough to be comfortable for your child, while also looking good in your home. It can provide an affordable solution for kid’s furniture, and lets you also save space on your coach. As a final note; don’t buy this for children over 12, as it is not meant for anyone over this age. The sizing is perfect for 18 months all the way up to 12 years, and they will love being able to claim that they have ‘their own chair’ – making this bean bag a must buy for your little ones.
