      A lovely seat with loads of life left

      When my eldest daughter was a few months old she always liked to fall asleep on a bean bag at our house and at a friends house, when we started doing her room out we decided on a Winnie the Pooh theme and as we knew she liked bean bags we had a look for a Winnie the Pooh bean bag for her, we came across this bean bag chair and thought it might be more suitable for her.

      We bought this from a little shop in Thirsk where my husband works and it cost us about £15 at the time, I have looked it up and found that Amazon sell the same one although it now costs £19.99.

      The chair is made out of mainly blue fabric but that was fine for my daughters room as we had painted the walls a neutral cream colour, there are little pictures printed all over the bag which are a bright yellow sun, flowers, trees, Piglet with a flower and Winnie the Pooh. The bean bag is reallyu bright and colourful which is great and my daughter loved it the first time she saw it.

      The chair was pretty hard for a bean bag when we first got it but then the more you sit on it the looser the and flatter and the beans inside become and the chair becomes softer and more comfortable to sit on. The chair is 50 x 40 x 40cms so isn't too big and fits a childs bum in it perfectly, the chair is also available in a mainly pink fabric but the shop we bought it from didn't have the pink version.

      The cover of the chair is made from 100% cottom and is supposed to be filled with none flattening beads but I can tell you the beads certainly do flatten over time but like i said this makes the chair more comfortable so I am glad they do flatten otherwise it would be a pretty hard seat.

      I would recommend this chair it is comfy and my daughter loves sitting on it even now at nearly 5 year old she still sits and watches TV on it, the bean bag is bold and brightens up the bedroom although it doesn't go so well now her bedroom is painted pink. I would say the chair is average value for money when you look at the prices of bean bags and it has lasted about 4 years so far and is still pretty clean and has plenty of life left in it.

      Great little chair for a great price

      I bought this for my 18 month old son a few weeks ago and he really loves it.

      The best thing about it is the price. I only paid £12 for it which is very cheap compared to most other bean bags and bean bag chairs.

      The one I have is blue and has Winnie the Pooh characters on it. It looks very cute and is a good colour for a boy but it does also come in pink and also yellow so there are other options for girls. I was very surprised by the size of the chair. It is actually quite a decent size and makes an extra seat for when we have lots of visitors because even adults can sit comfortably on it.

      The beans are inside a mesh bag and the cover of the chair comes off and is machine washable so it is very easy to clean and keep in good condition. Also because the beans are in a separate bag it makes it easy to remove them without them spilling everywhere.

      I really like the chair shape of it because my son looks more confortable on it and can sit on it easily. The only problem I have found with it though is that it does lose its chair shape quite easily so I do have to pat it back down again into shape but my son has learned how to do this himself now which is good.

      I would recommend this bean bag chair for kids. It is great value for money and is just the right size with a lovely design.

      -

      When my daughter was around a year old, we thought ti would be nice for her to have a little chair that she could sit on and be comfy on when she was watching her cartoons with her breakfast in the mornings. I was still hanging on to the Winnie The Pooh theme and was thrilled when I came across the Winnie The Pooh Bean Bag chair on eBay for £8.99.

      The Winnie The Pooh chair was available in a few different colours which were pink, yellow, green, blue and red. I chose pink for our daughter to be a little bit girly. The design was little Winnie The Poohs all over the fabric, wearing his trademark red top and then there were little jars of honey and bees scattered all over.

      The bean bag chair came with the cover and the beans for inside the chair which I thought was really good, especially for the price as most of the time you can only purchase the cover and then you have to pay out for the beans to go inside on top of that. The bean bag chair was made of a strong and thick cotton material which was also washable. There was a zip at the bottom which you simply undo and take the beans out (the beans are in a mesh type of bag so that they don't go everywhere) and then you can just stick the chair in the wash.

      I was pleased to see that the bean bag chair was very well made and the stitching was more like invisible stitching as it was hardly visible. It is pretty much the same stitching as a normal bea bag would have.

      When the beans are inside the chair, the chair looks like a proper little arm chair with arm rests and a back to it. It looks comfy and even with the beans in it, it is still very lightweight and easy to move about.

      The only issue I did have with the chair was that there just were not quite enough beans in the chair. It looked a little saggy so I had to purchase some more beans to fill it out a bit more for my daughter. Once I had it was alot more defined and not saggy at all.

      My daughter really loved her chair and said it was comfy. It was so comfy she would sometimes fall asleep sitting in it! She would look really sweet, especially with a little blanket over her.

      Highly recommended product though I will knock off a star for the lack of enough beans inside.

      A delightful bean bag chair, one your toddler is sure to love.

      On Saturday I had a blitz in my bungalow; I really was ruthless and had a huge listing spree on Freecycle of items I no longer needed, used or wanted. The first room I tackled was the bedroom where my youngest granddaughter sleeps when she comes to stay, with a rather large extended family she acquires new toys and 'bits' at a very fast pace - resulting in both mine and my daughter's homes resembling a nursery at times.

      While dismantling a mountain of soft toys I uncovered Hollie's Winnie the Pooh Bean Bag Chair, an item I have owned since she was six months old (which is too young to use it) and which hasn't been seen since the mountain began its formation some three months ago.

      There are numerous Winne the Pooh bean bags and bean bag chairs available, this is the official Disney version which is a deep blue colour and covered with small pictures of Winnie and Piglet. There are also honey pots, bright yellow suns and trees to break up the Pooh Bear theme, all of which blend in beautifully together creating a delightful representation of 100-Acre Wood.

      The outer cover is 100% cotton, making it a comfortable and cool seat for my granddaughter. This part is easily removed as there is a long and fairly wide zipper running along one of the bottom seams, cleverly Disney have attached a cloth tab at either end of the zipper so you can tuck the zip-pull into it and thereby avoid your little one opening the chair cover themselves. I believe there are two different closures available, indeed my niece owns the same bean bag chair for her son and hers features a strong Velcro opening instead of a zipper. Do check the underside of the cover should you require a specific closure as this information isn't readily available either online or on the product packaging.

      The polystyrene beads are housed in a white mesh cover, this makes it very simple to remove the outer cover for washing and this inner cover has not failed me in almost three years of use. We haven't lost a single bead in all this time and an inspection on Saturday revealed no loose stitching or seams which look to be stretched beyond their limits.

      When new the beads inside the chair were extremely densely packed, admittedly this meant the chair kept its shape well but it also meant that sitting on the seat of the chair did not look particularly comfortable. As time has gone on, however, the chair has become more squashy and now my granddaughter lounges on it in a similar fashion to a standard round bean bag. The shape remains very much 'chair like' but nowadays I've noticed that when my granddaughter sits on it she is able to slump in whatever position is most comfortable for her, rather than being forced to sit on it like a chair as was the case when it was new.

      This is really a toddlers chair; children above, say, five years old will quite simply be too long (and dare I say too bulky) to comfortably sit in it. As I mentioned, my granddaughter has owned the bean bag chair from six months old, although she didn't begin using it with any regularity until she was perhaps one year old. At that time the beads were still tightly packed so it provided her with the support she needed, and luckily the beads have loosened as she grew so as she gradually needed less support the chair has grown with her.

      The blue outer cover is machine washable, as this chair resides at my house I have washed it numerous times and it still looks as good as new with no fading. I have never tried to tumble dry it despite it being recommended on the label, I feel this would perhaps stretch the shape out of the fabric too much as you do really need to cover to be as tight a fit as possible in order to give the bean bag its distinctive chair appearance. Anyway, popping the cover over the line is a very easy process and an hour of dry weather and wind will dry it just as well as putting it in the tumble drier.

      I completely recommend this bean bag chair. Despite being blue it is bright and sunny enough to be perfect whether you have a little boy or a little girl, most children adore Pooh Bear so I'm certain that should you purchase this for your home then your little one will love it - and Winnie the Pooh as a character is likely to delight your child for longer than fleeting favourite characters such as Dora and IgglePiggle.

        Little people chairs.

        I got Hannah and Jess winnie the pooh beanbag chairs last christmas as i had seen them on ebay and looked fantastic they only cost £9.99 each.

        The beanbag winnie the pooh chairs come in pink, yellow, blue. I choose the pink for Hannah and yellow for Jess, each beanbag is shaped like an arm chair. The fabric is cotton and has small winnie the poohs, bees and jars of honey scattered around it.

        There is a zip on the bottom of the beanbag where the cover can be removed for washing, the beans are inside a mesh bag. The covers can be put in the washing machine and even tumble dried, the covers are a little fiddly to put back on myself so my partner held it open while i put the mesh bag of beans in. Hannah and jess love the beanbags, they sit on them and have there dinner on there lap trays , they also use them for watching tv on. These are ideal if you don't have a lot of room like us, they can be tucked away in a corner until needed. The beanbags are not really big ideal for toddlers.

        My only problem with the bean bags is they started to sag only after a few months but i bought a huge bag of beans from ebay and re stuffed them they are solid now and better than they were when new.

        I still recommend the winnie the pooh beanbag arm chairs , they are very cheap, very comfy, Hannah and Jess use theirs everyday and love them.

        A Wicked Beanbag Chair That's Got Pride Of Place In Our Living Room

        When my 2 year old sister was a baby she hated lying in her moses basket so my mum would get her comfy on our leather beanbag, this means my sister has grown up with a mad love of beanbags and now owns 5 of them that are dotted round the house.

        This Winnie The Pooh one is my fave because it's shaped like a little arm chair instead of a standard round beanbag. It's a shame Dooyoo haven't got a picture up because this chair looks wicked, the background is the 100 Acre Wood and that is all on the seat and the bottom part of the chair and the back is blue so that it looks like the sky.

        There are pictures of Winnie The Pooh, piglet, Tigger and Kanga on the chair but I wish Eeyore was on there as well because I love his gloomy looks! lol

        When my sister sits in it you can see the chair mould itself so that she can sit comfortable, the beans in it make it a lot softer than other kids chairs you can get. The only problem is that if it's on the laminate floor the chair can slip a bit sometimes and if my sister's climbing on it then you have to watch in case it slides across the floor.

        The cover is very strong and I've looked at all the seams and they're still in brand new condition even though the chair is probably about 18 months old now and has been dragged and shoved along the floor. The cover doesn't come off so when it gets grubby my dad has to take it outside and give it a good clean instead of just being able to chuck the cover in the washing machine like the rest of the beanbags we've got.

        I think it holds it's shape good considering how beanbags usually shrink down over time, the arms and back of the chair are still quite firm and even though they're a bit squishy now there's still plenty of support for my sister when she sits in the chair.

        I just asked my mum and she thinks she paid about £15.00 for the chair but she reckons she's seen them for a tenner now, the design has changed from this one now though and the last one she saw was a pale blue gingham print with pictures of Winnie The Pooh and Tigger all over it.

          I know this is not the right section but other than that i didn't know what to do so i do apologise! Anyway what i would like to comment on is a winnie-the pooh bean bag chair (what a mouthfull!) that i purchased for my daughter who is now 9 months old. I found that now my little girl is too big for her rocker chair and too small to sit comfortably on a chair without that worry of her falling off or constantly watching her. This product is ideal as it is shaped just like a little chair but as it is bean-filled it moulds straight to your childs shape of body, thus ensuring a snug fit. It is good for feeding, to watch television in or any other past-time they enjoy. the only thing that is annoying is obviousley you can't rock them in it which i would find truley valuable as my daughter still needs rocking to sleep. This product was avaliable in Woolworths but i do believe they ran out of stock and weren't getting more. I bought mine from Tesco Direct at the price of £19.99 which although dear for a little chair will over-ride this in use! I would say the age group would be 6 months- 3 years.
