Linens Limited Me To You Bean Bag
My little one has started to love 'Me to you' bears, which is hardly surprising as her aunty loves them and buys her little bears on birthdays and Christmas'! On her last birthday, she bought something a little bit different in the way of these lovely 'Me to you' bears, which came in the shape of this bean bag which she purchased for just under £15 I believe, though I can not seem to find it online to check the latest price. Amazon do have it, though it is out of stock at the moment.
The bean bag is shaped as many bean bags are and is perfect size to sit in from a young child to a small adult! At 3 cubic feet, I have even sat in it a few times as it is quite comfortable, though I soon get told of by my little one! The colouring is mainly a light pink with a slightly darker pink and yellow patterns to it. There are a few pictures of a me-to-you bear around it which is in its usual colour of grey with a lovely little blue nose. It is rather eye-catching if I do say so myself!
The material is 100% cotton and it is filled with polyester balls which together, makes it very comfortable. My little one drags it around from room to room to sit on!
Due to the balls inside, the bag is sponge clean only with no zip to take out the balls, though it easily wipes clean though I can see problems arising if something spills on it and stains as it will be a lot more difficult to get the stain out this way.
I don't know about my little one, though I absolutely LOVE this bean bag! And yes, when I let her have it back, my little one loves it too! It is very comfortable and you can never get my little one out of it!
As a child I always had a bean bag in my bedroom and absolutely loved just chilling out sitting on it and maybe reading or playing on my computer! So, when I decided to redecorate my little girls bedroom I thought I would look into getting one for her room too and when I chose the theme of the Me To You Bear it was brilliant as online I found a gorgeous pink Me To You bean bag!
When the box came with the bean bag in, it was absolutely huge and my little girl couldn't wait to get it open and see what was inside and as soon as it was out of the box she loved it! She was diving on it, sitting, lying on it and even cuddling it!!
The bean bag is from the Character World brand and is exclusive to Linens Limited. The size of the bean bag is 3 cubic feet, so it really is quite a large one for children. The bean bag is a pale pink colour with several pictures of the Me To You bear with some random patterns too, with the patterns being brightly coloured in yellow and a striking pink. The material of the bean bag is 100% cotton and the filling is 100% polyester balls. and this makes it super soft to sit on. One excellent feature with this bean bag is that the polyester filling is flame retardent so that can give you some real peace of mind.
The price of this lovely bean bag can vary depending on where you purchase it from, in a catalogue it is slightly more expensive but on Amazon it is currently £18.94 which I don't think is too bad for such a great item.
Initially I bought this as a feature for my little girls bedroom, however she loves sitting on it so much it has ended up staying in our living room and she will sit and either read or watch television on it! Luckily I have quite a big room so it doesn't take up too much space!!
The only downside to this bean bag is that it is sponge clean only, I feel it could have been slightly better if it had been a zip up one so the cover could be removed and washed, but I guess it isn't a major problem.
My little girl just adores this bean bag as I am sure many children would. It is very cute and girly so of course wouldn't be suitable for a little boy but this would be a lovely present for a little girl (or even big girl if they love Me To You like I do!). I really recommed this as it is great quality, withstands lots of jumping on and is extremely comfortable too!
I give this four out of five stars, just losing a star as it is sponge clean only.
Thank you for reading my review :)
Now you may have guessed I am a bit of a Me to You bear fan from my previous reviews. Now my boyfriend is a ps3 and xbox fan and has his own room and special chair to play his games on (and does not realise how lucky his lol) now occasionally I go and sit in his room with him and read my book romantic I know, anyway I had no where to sit as the room is quite small and I quickly get a numb bum from sitting on little cushions. I decided it was time to take action so had a look online a got me this bean bag it cost me £15 from ebay but shop around and you maybe able to get one cheaper.
The bean bag itself is 3 cubic feet which is about average bean bag size. Inside the 100% cotton me to you cover you find the little polystyrene balls which make up the bag and make it comfy for sitting on.
The cover is baby pink and decorated with Me to You bears with his arms stretched open like his is bursting out of the bad. As the bag is cotton it feels soft to touch. It does state that if you get the bean bag dirty you should sponge clean it, thats all very well but if you spill a cup of tea on and you don't sponge it right you are going to know about it as the milk in it goes off so when this happened to me I took my chances unzipped the cover pulled out the inside bag containing the polystyrene balls and put it it the washing machine on a 30 wash, I did not push my look by tumble drying it as well but washing and air drying didn't seem to harm the cover in anyway and the bag of polystyrene fit back in perfectly.
As for sitting on it is quite comfy once I have molded my position that is. Teh bean bag balls will move as you do so once you are comfy it best to not move to much. I wouldn't say I could sit on bean bags for extended legths of time but they are ok if your short of chairs and space.
5 stars for a chair alternative.
