Shopping for children's bean bags is always fun as the designs are more animated. Some come in fruit shapes like a pumpkin. It makes it look like a child is sitting on a real pumpkin. These chairs also have safety measures to avoid accidents. They are made to be more durable, preventing the contents from spilling out. On the other hand, the sports bean bag is for the sports enthusiasts. These bean bag chairs have major logos on them, like the baseball logo, their college teams, hockey, NASCAR, NFL football, basketball, or soccer. These chairs come in a shape of sports balls. Soccer bean bags are in patches of black and white, likened to a real soccer ball. Most of the team recreational rooms have these bean bag chairs decorated on it.
Noted Italian designers developed the first bean bag chairs in the 1960's. Their creation was called the 'Sacco', and was at the time described as an ɺnatomical armchair'. It became the first mass produced bean bag furniture. Just like its counterpart these days, the Sacco was filled with polystyrene beads that make them lightweight and easy to mold to the shape of the body. While enhancements to its size and shape have occurred over time, in general the bean bag chair form remains true to the design of the Sacco from the 1960's. The original concept behind the bean bag chair was to create stylish mobile furniture, which is unlike conventional bulky furniture. Thus the bean bag chair is easily moved from room to room as well as from indoors to outdoors. The design of it is highly praised, as it adapts to many different body shapes. The original Sacco featured a headrest that got its shape from beans being pushed up into this area. In the more modern bean bags, the head area is not a separate component, rather now a part of the bean bag chair which is accentuated.
Dried beans and/or rice can also be used to fill your bean bag. These items are both relatively inexpensive and are available at your every-day supermarket. However, if you live in a moist/humid environment, this may not be the best solution for you. Using rice and/or beans as a filling may also attract moths, insects or even rodents. Perhaps not quite so commonly known are wood shavings. Wood shavings of all types can be used to fill up your bag. Cedar chips in particularly are very appealing to many people because not only do they smell wonderful, they also repel fleas. If you have pets in your house, cedar wood chips might be just the right filler for you. Pillow stuffing is also sometimes used to stuff your bean bag. Although it is a somewhat inexpensive solution, it in essence makes a giant pillow and lacks the buoyancy that beads provide. After a few sittings, the stuffing will be packed down and will need re-fluffing.
With the wide variety of bean bags available on the market, there is a wide variety of fabrics available. Vinyl is very common in bean bag chairs, although some people feel that vinyl is too sticky and not as comfortable as cloth bean bag chairs. Vinyl is easy to wipe up and keep clean which is a definite advantage. When selecting vinyl ensure the fabric uses lead-free vinyl inks. Other bean bags come in leather, fun fur, microfibre, denim and cotton. If possible when choosing a fabric, look for a bean bag chair that has a liner so that the cover can be removed and washed periodically. Regardless of the fabric you prefer, look for a high quality fabric. The fabric should use lead-free vinyl inks and stand up to wear and tear as they are pushed and pulled in all directions. Since they sit on the floor the fabric must be durable to ensure the bean bag lasts for many years. The seams should be double stitched with clear nylon for added strength as you do not want the bean bag chair to spring a leak. The zippers should be locking to ensure the safety of children. The zippers must be locked to keep children from being able to open the bag and ingest the fill. As well the bean bag should be double zippered to ensure the safety of the bag and to keep the fill inside the bag.
