Here on Six Little Hearts, we just love reviewing fun stuff for families and kids. For every three requests we receive to have products featured here, only one will make the cut and actually be featured on this site. We're indeed selective, and only interested in show-casing the very best of the best, while keeping the lifestyles of all of you in mind when we do.
Which leads us into the topic of this post...
Bean bags and kids are a marriage made in Heaven wouldn't you agree?
We recently bought a new sofa from Plush Sofas, (love it too), but for a while there, we considered just throwing away our existing furniture altogether, and living with the simplest, most inexpensive and kid-friendly furniture in existence - bean bags.
Just think for a moment how much fun that could be!
Whether you've just one child or twenty, all parents know how kids tend to treat the lounge area in their own homes. Jungle gym, playground or WWE arena (ours is a good mix of the three), mums and dads can be hard-placed to keep the kiddos still and in control while preserving those investment furnishings.
Bean bags or beanie chairs can really help save your home, and they can conveniently give us adults the luxury of additional seating when the kids are happy little floor-dwellers. (Don't let them realise this though.)
So, please keep these above points in mind as you read on. My kids (just like your own), really love bean bags and being silly, hence, silly photos ensue of a really terrific product for kids in actual use!
Meet the Chibebe Snuggle Pod. This is a funky, fashionable, durable and comfy bean chair for babies and kids. It's suitable from birth to 8 years of age and beyond. (Typically I find our teens lying about on it too.)
For tiny people, the Chibebe bean chair comes with a separate topper that is fitted with a safety harness. This keeps your baby all safe and sound, and means that the product meets the required Australian Safety Standards. As soon as baby is an independent little person, it's time to zip-off the special baby cover and zip-on the soft child topper which has no harness. (As shown in these photos.)
Master Taite (aged 8), is a huge fan of his Chibebe Snuggle Pod seat. Daily he can be found sitting on it, happily watching TV or playing with his stuff...
...OR wrestling, slithering, rolling, punching it and jumping on it.
Let's face it, in real life, kids don't sit dead-still for long. Before you know it, the siblings are wriggling about and in on the act with force too.
That's more like it!
The Chibebe Snuggle Pod is a great size for kids of all ages and it won't take up too much precious space in your home. The fashionable fabrics and designs look gorgeous against all interiors and they make an inviting space for kids to rest (or wrestle).

So how has our Chibebe Snuggle Pod (Green Polka Baby Bean Bag in Cream) been holding up under these circumstances?
Despite its daily pounding, Taite's beanie chair is going great. The cover is fully washable and has had a few rounds in the machine already. It always comes up like new and it dries quickly.
This bean chair has a soft but very tough outer fabrication. Thanks to the inner bean bag 'bean holder,' (which ensures this bag is as safe as can be for children of all ages), the outer is quick and easy to remove and wash as required with zero messiness.
Chibebe's Snuggle Pod comes in its own designer bag for gift giving and stowage of the spare seat topper when not in use.
The bean chairs do not come filled. You can however purchase beans as an add-on, on the Chibebe website. Otherwise you will need to buy a bag of beans from a local department store. (These are available everywhere and are inexpensive.) The instructions on how to fill the bean chair are simple and it all takes just a few minutes to set up for your child.
For babies with reflux, the Snuggle Pod can assist by reducing symptoms, as it keeps your child in an upright position. It is also a wonderful aid for preventing a flattened head in early infancy. By providing a soft surface for baby to sit on when awake, this specially designed bean chair can help to reduce a very common problem. Chibebe's Snuggle Pod is not intended as a sleeping device.
