Bean Baggage

So, the friendly folks at Sumo offered us a free beanbag chair, in exchange for a review. This isn’t normally a practice I’d take part in, but heck, we needed a beanbag chair (and who doesn’t?). As it turns out, Sumo has been sending chairs to other interweb friends and colleagues as well, and this makes us feel slightly less shameful to be blogging about free products. Now onto the review.

We received the Omni chair, which is really a giant pillow that can be manipulated into various seating configurations. We liked this because the office is tight on space, and multi-purpose seating options are welcomed. The covering of the chair is a bit like a nylon windbreaker—not exactly cozy, but yet easy to clean and a step up from the shiny, uncomfortable beanbag coverings of childhood memory.

My 2.75 year-old, Jack, gave it a thorough toddler test: spreading it out flat on the floor, then repeatedly “cannonballing” into it. It was a big hit, and it (and he) held up nicely. Again, the vinyl covering is key for clean-up if you have kids around.

The Omni is a nice addition to the BitCave, and we thank Sumo for sending it. But beware, if you order the Midnight Blue version, they’ve been known to swallow people whole. Just FYI.
