A Brief history of the bean bag....

The bean bag was first discovered in the 1960's by three Italian men while working for a styrofoam factory, they called it a Sacco. It was made out of vinyl and filled up with leftover pieces of styrofoam pellets. 

How to open your bean bag

In accordance with Australian Standards all zipper pullers are removed. Zippers can be opened and closed using a safety pin. Please ensure to remove the safety pin once the bean bag cover has been opened/closed.

How many bags of filling will I need

Our bean bags are available in 3 different sizes to suit everyone. Mini, Midi, Maxi. 

We suggest using polystyrene balls to fill your bean bag cover. 100L of bean bag filling for our mini size, 200L for our midi and 300L for our maxi.

We recommend you don't over fill your bean bag to avoid placing too much pressure on the stitching and zipper

How to fill a Bean Bag

Filling your bean bag can be easy and mess free. Its aways a good idea to have someone help you hold the bean bag cover open while you do the filling. Make sure you stand away from the door or any breeze as this can cause the bean bag balls to end up on the floor. If you are filling your bean bag from a new bag of beans carefully snip the corner off the bag of beans. Lower the opened corner into the bean bag opening and allow the beans to flow out until you have reached your desired firmness.

If you are filling the bean bag from another bean bag cover make a paper funnel to help you. Simply roll a piece of paper into a funnel and stick the ends down to prevent the paper from unrolling. Insert the funnel into the hole of the full bean bag and tighten the zipper around the funnel. Place the other end of the funnel into the open hole of the empty bean bag cover and proceed to fill. 

Make sure you pick up/vacuum any loose beans that have spilled during the filling process as these can be dangerous to children or pets if swallowed. 

WARNING: Children can suffocate if bean bag filling is swallowed or inhaled. Do not let children climb inside

a bean bag.  A bean bag is not a safe sleeping surface for an infant under 12 moths of age.

Do your bean bags come with an inner liner

Our beanbag covers do not come with an inner liner. We have found that filling the bean bag cover direct allows the bean bag balls to fill every corner creating a very comfortable seat for you to enjoy.
