It is normal for all beanbag chairs to need refilling after any long period of use. A few kinds of these chairs are not filled with individual bean-like pellets, but with fluffy polyurethane material not unlike regular pillow filling. This style of chair should not need to be refilled ever, but may require periodic fluffing up. These chairs come in a huge variety of materials and styles. Their defining characteristic is their lumpy bag-like shape and the ability to have them conform to the shape of your body when you sit in them. Common styles for the outside of beanbag chairs include vinyl, leather, denim, and nylon. They come in just about any color, and some are even pre-formed into fun shaped kids bean bag or for a particular use, such as a foot stool to accompany your chair.
In Australia the main retailers are Kmart, Big W, Spotlight and Target. You can also buy beans at many places online. The bags vary in size, the most popular is the 100L bag. Beans in Australia are generally measured in litres but they can also be measured in kilograms. It can get a bit confusing. So for my big two seater beanbag I was instructed to use 450 litres to fill it. I went off to Big W to buy the beans, they come in a 100 litre bag so I bought 5 of them. It is always handy to have some extra beans so that if you bag gets a little flat you can top it up every now and then. The next part is the hard part. Seriously who would have know how tricky it is to fill a beanbag. My first suggestion is to do this with someone else, a friend, sibling, parent or child (not too little as the beans are a choking hazard.) So first up get the inner bag and open the zip around 30cm wide and get your friend to hold the bag up with the opening towards you.
A beanbag chair has the ability to support the body. Although it is soft, but it‘s not too much that it could drown you. The quality of its softness is enough to conform to the body when a person will sit on it. Whatever the position of the occupant may be, he will feel relaxed. He can recline, sit, or lie on it, his and tiredness will still be relieved. Beanbags come in different shapes and sizes. They are perfect for everybody. The kids would love the bright colors and interesting designs that are made for their age. The adults can enjoy the larger kind. They can make it into a bed or utilize it in their living room or even in their outdoor area.
Throughout the 70s the Sacco was widely advertised but not as the Sacco. Marketers needed a name for an imitation of the Sacco so they developed a more appropriate name - the beanbag. The main difference between the Sacco and the ‘beanbag‘ was that the beanbag used less expensive materials to help make it cheaper for the common man. The beanbag would go on to become a symbol of the 70‘s along with the disco ball, lava lamps, Space invaders, Pong and even Abba. Throughout the 1980‘s the beanbag suddenly lost most of its trendy reputation and for that reason was consigned to the world of "kiddie furniture". The beanbag became the kid‘s preference of a seat for watching television and just ‘chilling out‘.
