It pretty much always comes empty so that you can use your imagination to fill it up and make it a  tremendous comfy seat for your child or yourself!

  • There are so many colors and designs; you’ll have no problem to match the cover with your little one’s room
  • They will have so much fun to choose with you which one they like the most to be their plush toys new home


  • Apart from stuffed animals, you can store so many things inside! Blankets, throws, pillows, towels, bedding, even clothes! You can put them in between the toys inside to make the chair fuller and more comfortable
  • You can throw in some of his jumpers and hoodies to make it denser too
  • If your kid is a teenager and wants a bit more grown-up room but is not ready yet to say goodbye to favourite plush toys, then a stuffable bean bag comes in very handy. The toys are out of the view and safely inside the bag, and your child gains a modern bean bag chair to match his room


  • Storage bean bag chair covers come with long, sturdy zippers to ensure the loading and unloading of the bag is easy
  • There is double sewing which is excellent to prevent tearing of the bag and making it last for years
  • It is usually made from cotton canvas. Canvas fabric is best known for being sturdy, durable, and heavy-duty. Which makes it perfect for kids! Some manufacturers are also offering softer materials like plush or velvet

Other uses

  • Stuffable bean bags can have great use as a footrest. It will keep your throws and blankets in one place and be that comfy footstool everyone will want to use
  • It can be a great gift! How many times were you wondering what to buy for your niece and nephew for birthdays and Christmas? Now you’ll be the favourite one who bought them the coolest storage bean bag chair

How to clean it?

Most of the storage bean bag chair covers are machine washable, making cleaning so much easier. You can also spot clean it with hot soapy water, but depending on the stain you might need to put it into the washing machine anyway. 

What to watch out for when buying a storage bean bag?

  • If you are looking to have it as a standard bean bag chair and fill it with filler like polystyrene balls, we recommend getting inner linings like this one. Stuffable bean bag covers have very long zip that opens the bag widely. If you don’t have an inner liner for filling, the little balls will go everywhere around the room, and it will be a nightmare to pick them up and put back in
  • I have found out that many people are complaining about the visible lumps on the bag after filling it with the plush toys. What might help is to line up the towel inside of the cover before putting animals in to achieve a nice, smooth feel on the outside. You can also put rolled towels within the stuffed toys to make it more full 
  • Check the zipper for quality. It should run smoothly to open and close and not have any scratchy parts
  • Have a look at the stitching and fabric. Double stitching is recommended for the best durability. Material has to be smooth and without any rips
