Bean bags are very common in households today. In fact, most households already have several beanbag chairs, so it is not a new concept for others to own this type of furniture. However, beanbags can also be used as seating options and some people still do not know how to properly use them.
Children's bean bags are usually smaller than regular adult chairs and they are intended to be used only by kids. Most beanbags cost around $400 and above. The more unique and colorful the design, the more the price will be. Kids bean bag chairs normally cost lower than other types of kids' furniture and the price depends largely on the quality of the beanbags and the material used to make it.
Bean bags come in different colors, designs and styles and they are made of different materials such as leather, canvas, plastic, cloth, jute and others. Those made of synthetic cloth are usually cheaper than natural cloth. Bean bags come in a variety of shapes, such as small chairs with long bottoms, big chairs with extended backs, and even beanbag chairs with a footstool. Some children's bean bags come in unusual shapes, like animal shaped chairs, or in the form of a small boat.
Children's bean bags can have hard or soft sides. Some are covered in sheepskin, which is quite comfortable and soft. Some of them are covered in cotton, which is usually less comfortable but also has a reasonable amount of softness. Children's bean bags have a snap on the bottom, which makes them easy to carry and keep stored away. On the other hand, there are also beanbag chairs that come with a handle, which makes it easier to move it from one place to another.
If your kids use beanbags for sleeping, you should buy a strong and durable one. Beanbags are not only a piece of furniture, they are also meant to comfort your children when they sleep. This means that you should get a bag that has double stitching and thick padding. Beanbags can also be used as beds, if you so wish. Just make sure that the bag is large enough for your kid to lie down on comfortably.
Most children's bean bags are machine washable at home, but you may want to hand wash them in cold water with a mild detergent and a little bleach or soap. It is best to dry them on a hanger, so that there is no dampness and so that all the buttons and zippers come off without making any marks. When washing, use a very gentle cycle on a gentle cycle. For linens and curtains, dry them on low or lay flat to dry.
