Caring for Your Bean Bag Chair
While bean bag chairs have a variety of different filling material and outer surfaces, all bean bag chairs can spill their insides if used roughly or inadvertently punctured. Don’t sit on a bean bag chair while wearing jewelry or accessories with sharp edges and try to keep pets from digging their claws into the chair. Explain to kids that bean bag chairs are furniture, not implements for bopping their siblings on their heads.
