Product Review: Heavenly Bean Bags {Giveaway}

What child doesn't love a bean bag? I have fond memories of bean bags from childhood. Fond as they are, I also don't remember them being particularly comfortable.

Well! That has all changed with Heavenly Bean Bags! We were on our way out the door to the park one day when our bean bag arrived. We opened it up and the kids loved it. They decided to put the park off for a few minutes so they could spend some time with the bean bag first. After a few minutes, I got my turn. I was shocked at how comfy it was. When my husband got home from work, I had him try it out. Yep, comfy. This is something I wouldn't mind sitting in to watch a movie if I needed to, so I know it is comfortable enough for kids for sure! Here is Valerie's story:

Years ago, when I was a freshman at Samford University, I loved shopping in Birmingham's Galleria. Every time I went to the mall I would tire myself out and eventually find myself in my favorite store, The Bean Bag store. Being a poor college student and all, I knew I could not afford a bean, much less a bean bag chair. However, the owner of the store was incredibly kind and he let me sit in a bean bag chair and chat with him for hours at a time. One day he asked me why I had not bought a bean bag chair yet. I responded that I was broke. He went into deep thought and a few minutes later he asked me if I liked to baby-sit. I said, "definitely!" Well to make a long story short, I baby-sat his three precious children in exchange for a wonderful navy blue loveseat bean bag chair. It quickly became a popular gathering spot for the girls in my dorm and I loved it so much that I eventually ended up working at the Bean Bag store. I worked there on and off until I graduated from college.

Afer graduation I moved to Maine and worked at Chop Point, a wonderful Christian school and camp. I really loved it, but eventually had to move on. I got involved with a local church and helped create a youth ministry, but I found myself with very little time to spend with the kids and with a huge stack of bills. I began to seek a way to support myself without working 50 hours a week and all of the sudden I remembered The Bean Bag Store. I gave the owner a call, and he said it would be ok with him if I started my own business here in Maine. So here we are. I can't even begin to explain how excited I am about the whole thing. I never stopped loving my navy blue bean bag chair, and now my love for the product makes it really easy to sell. I can not end this story without giving all the credit to Jesus Christ, who knew he had a perfect plan for me (Jeremiah 29:11) though I had no idea what it was.
My children have had fun wrestling the bean bag, jumping on the bean bag, and snuggling up in the bean bag to read stories. We have loved ours.

Heavenly Bean Bags has all sorts of bean bags. Large to small. Loveseats to ottomans. There are six sizes to choose from! They also have lots of fabrics available, from polyester, to vinyl, to suede, to my personal favorite, the microfiber. They also have fun animal prints and color morphing fabric. They even go the extra mile. They will make a bean bag from fabric you supply if you want. You really can get the perfect bean bag to match your decor in your home.

These bean bags are made in the USA. Seams are triple stitched. One of my favorite features is that you can buy a removable cover. Then you can take the cover off, wash it, and put it back on. This also means you can change the cover down the road if you decide you no longer like neon pink. You never know. Some day, that might not be your favorite anymore ;)

We of course have to mention BABIES ARE NOT TO BE LEFT UNATTENDED IN/ON BEAN BAGS.

And Valerie is making it easy for you to get one of your own. Not only is there a giveaway, but a discount! The winner of the giveaway will win one small polyester recliner in the color of your choice! She is also offering a 10% discount. To get the discount, make your order by phone and mention this blog. You can get this discount through April--last day is April 30, 2010.
