    3. Can I order a special beanbag?

    If you have a special request please do not hesitate to contact us. We can quote you on a special design (within reason) to meet your specifications, if you have a certain fabric with which you would like to make a beanbag, you can send it to us and we will make it for you.

    4. What is my guarantee?

    All our products come with a guarantee on workmanship and materials, and a 30 day right of return for your money back or a replacement (unless previously arranged). Please read our Terms of Service to ensure your security and satisfaction.

    5. How durable is a beanbag?

    Our beanbags do not break easily.  We carefully select durable materials and use industrial sewing machines to assemble them. The thread we use is extremely strong. However, under extreme circumstances (i.e. kids jumping on them with shoes), the bags durability could be seriously reduced. We would expect our bag last at least 5 years under normal use.

    6. I would like to order bulk, is it possible?

    Yes definitely.  Our beanbags and other products make ideal promotional tools. Many companies have used our products as giveaways and premiums. If you can see an application for your business please contact us to discuss further. We can provide you with quotes and wholesale prices.

    7.What kind of bag should I order?

    When choosing a beanbag product, one should really take into consideration the end purpose of the bag as well as the end user. For example a stronger, easy to clean fabric will be more suited for a rumpus room where the kids can relax or play fight. Size should also be considered according to the dimensions of the room and person. Bean bag chairs are ideal for small rooms because they can be stacked on top of each other to make more space or while cleaning/vacuuming. The different sizes can accommodate a room's dimension.

    8. What colors should I get?

    Bean bag chairs are great when you want to add an extra dash of color to your interiors. To brighten up the kids bedroom or a finishing touch to your living room. They can add a new dimension to your setting by creating a relaxed mood. The colors of a bean bag chair can be used to complement an existing lounge by matching curtains or a couch, etc. Another great color option is to have piping on the bag so that you can match two colors or hues of the same color.

    9. Aren't beanbags bad for my back?

    No! Quite the opposite. They are excellent for bad backs as they provide very good postural support. Bean bag chairs mould to the shape of the spine and offer complete support from the occiput to the coccyx. You can wriggle around and change the shape to suit your needs. We do recommend that people with bad backs overfill them, as the fuller the bag, the more support they provide.

    10. Is there a right or wrong way to sit in them?

    Yes and no. If you have never sat in a bean bag chair before, there is a right way to sit in them. If you sit too high you may not be supported enough, and if you sit too low your legs may be resting too close to the ground. This could make them feel uncomfortable after a while. The best area to sit in is where the wide part of the bag meets the area which starts to narrow, at roughly the middle part of the bag. This is a general rule of thumb as different body shapes and habits tend to govern what is best for the user. Some people tend to lie their bags down for a better reclining position - this is great if you are going to watch a movie. Do not be scared of your beanbag, try different sitting positions - there are no rules!

    11. How many beans in a bag?

    There are on average 7000 beans per litres of fill. An average beanbags requires 250 litres, this equates to 1.75 million of beans.
