Bean Bags for Kids
When deciding upon purchasing a bean bag chair for kids, you may want to take a few things into consideration first.
Note, that the bean bags of yesteryear were not very durable, and you often ended up with many of the Styrofoam pellets on the floor that escaped the covering and made a complete mess. Next, you would have to find replacement filling, what a drag. But not the bean bags of today. You have gotten such a selection of quality made bean bags with standards that make them more durable, child safe and with so many options available to you, it may be hard to just select one.
First let's consider the size of the room you are looking to complement with a bean bag chair. If you are limited in room space, you may want to select the basic 2 ½ foot classic one. They may come in many shapes, but my favorite is the teardrop shape with great back support. If you have more room to spare, there is definitely the larger sacks or even loungers available from 4 to 7 ½ feet. These are so comfortable, they may even be used in place of a bed.
Next, you want to consider the fabric that you want the cover to be made in. There are so many choices available from faux fur, cotton, vinyl, micro fiber, to even leather or faux leather. The best thing though is that you want to purchase a bean bag that has a removable cover or that is easy to wipe clean. Kids are famous for accidently spilling things so having a waterproof bean bag cover is almost a must. The removable covers are machine washable and the vinyl ones that may not be able to machine wash, you can very easily wipe clean. The vinyl ones don't feel like plastic any longer, they are made from a better quality fabric as well.
The fabric choices available are so many that you will easily find a color or pattern to match any room. If your child is a fan of a particular sports team or college, you will even be able to find one with that logo.
Durability is another thing to consider. Kids are hard of furniture and with bean bags they may want to take them all over the house as well. Make sure that when purchasing a bean bag that you purchase one that has seams that are double or triple stitched and the zipper is child proof as well. This helps to keep the filling in and the child (especially young ones) out.
Why purchase a bean bag chair? Children love to be comfortable and why not make their rooms enjoyable and comfortable to be in. They are great to relax in and read or listen to music or even watch television in, and they are great to play video games in . Gamers love them because they can sit for hours in them and not get back aches or numb spots for sitting in the same position for an extended time.
Bean bags are a wonderful addition to a kids room - whether you choose small orlarger bean bagsto suit your purpose, they are a must have for any child's or teenager's room.
