So, if you are “the brave one”, here are some useful tips on how to get ready for baby bean bag filling process and not to get covered with messy polystyrene beads all over:
First of all, please note that baby bean bag seats which you can purchase at vestababy.com require approximately 60 l (2 cu ft) of polystyrene beads. After you will buy the filler, make sure to find an open-space area (with no or minimum furniture) in your house, in your backyard or in the garage. You have to make sure that kids or pets won’t have any access to this place until you will finish and clean up the place after the job is done.
Try to find something like a long tube in your house, for example, a vacuum cleaner extension tube. Make a small hole in the bag of polystyrene beads and insert the tube. Fix the bag on the tube with a rubber band to prevent beads from getting out of the bag. The same way fix the other side of the tube and the bean bag’s lining. Then carefully proceed to fill the baby bean bag seat with the beads. Beads have to go fast and easy without pouring out.
Make sure to close all zippers tight. Always remember to remove the paper clip out of childproof zippers for the safety of children.
