Last week, I received an email from a nice man named Michael. He was writing from the marketing dept. of Yogibo. He asked if I had ever used Yogibo beanbags to help anyone on the spectrum. Furthermore, he would be happy to select one for me to review.
So, I visited the site...and there went my conviction of not doing anything extra! These aren't ordinary run of the mill bean bags. They are pretty-inviting...honestly? They looked to good to be true. I mean, my kids have always loved bean bags. loved them so much that *sigh* we would always wind up with deflated sacks and beans EVERYWHERE. So..as he was offering to send me one for free (convictions can be bought) I thought "Why not"..and "Wow-the kids will love this." and...FREE!" The thing of it is though-I will be honest. I am not going to write a glowing review just because I'm getting something for free. That wouldn't be right. So, I put him to the test. I said "Surprise me." I said that "parents will contact you asking for your input-wanting to know what might be the best product they should choose.I want to go through this from ordering to delivery and beyond." He agreed. I described my kids, gave him my address...and here is what happened..
|Two days later-this was at my door. My dog wasn't impressed|
|Sam pulled it out of the box|
|It was very easy to unpack|
|Oscar immediately fell on top of it|
|And started rolling around|
|Everyone else joined in. They LOVED how it felt.|
|Lily liked how it hugged her body|
|Sam said it was a great place to take a nap|
|Zoe loved jumping on it|
|She also loved leaning into it|
|AND it is big enough for both girls to share|
For the past three days, it has been dragged, pulled, jumped on, rolled on, twisted, bent, piled on...you name it-my kids have done it. My children have destroyed couches in less time than that. But this? It has held up. it remains a cozy soft place for them to land when they need it. I highly recommend it. especially if you have kids like mine.
Now for the nitty gritty-We got the Yogi Max which retails for 229.00. I know that this is expensive to many people. I look at it this way. I have bought many bean bags for thirty to forty dollars-only to have them fall apart within hours. The yogi max is durable and incredibly comfortable. If you or your kids are sensory seekers-or over loaded, this is a really wonderful option. Check out their site. there are other options/ sizes available. This is a lovely bean bag-and my kids are really happy to have it. As an added bonus-if you add "Herd" to the coupon code-you will get a discount! How cool is that?
|I should mention-it also comes with a big box. Which to some of my kids is almost as good as the bean bag..almost-but not quite.|
