Q: How do I fill the baby bean bag?

A: You can buy bags of beans from department stores like Kmart for around $12 for a 100L bag.

For a newborn, you will need about 60 - 75L to fill the bag and less if your baby is older.

The two easiest ways to fill your bag are

1) - make a funnel out of a rolled up piece of cardboard and secure with packing tape
- insert the funnel 3/4 into the inner liner of your bag and tighten the zipper around it
- snip the top corner off your bag of beans
- have another hold your funnel set up and zipper tight while you pour the beans in

2) - get a standard size bucket with pouring spout
- snip the top corner off your baby of beans
- pour beans in to the bucket
- pour beans from the bucket into the baby bean bag

3) - if you are local to Highett in Melbourne, we can fill your bag for an extra $25 and have it ready for you to pick up at a time that's convenient for you. Just call or message us to arrange.



Q: How many beans do I need to fill the baby bean bag?

A: You can buy bags of beans from department stores like Kmart for around $12 for a 100L bag.

For a newborn, you will need about 60L to fill the bag and less as the child grows so ensure you empty out a few handfuls every so often.

By the time they are toddlers you would only need about 30L for them to sit comfortably in the bag.



Q: My baby bean bag's zip doesn't work?

A: All of our baby bean bags have had their zip pulls removed for safety as per the Australian guidelines. To operate your zip, thread the included paper clip into the hole where the zip pull goes to operate.

Check out our video demo of how to operate the zip under our Video Demo tab.

If your zip is still stuck take out the zip and pop it in to the other part of the hole. Have a look at the hole and you will see it is divided in half by a metal arm. If you put it in one part the zip remains locked in place, in the other half it glides easily.



Q: Can you please fill my baby bean bag for me?

A: We sure can!

For an extra $25 we can have your baby bean bag filled and read to can collect from Highett, which is 17km South East of Melbourne. Just call us or send us a message to arrange.

To order and pay online, select the Bean Bag Filling option in the Rest Section.

How to order Info is also available under the short description of each baby bean bag titled Local Pick Up

I have bought a beanbag, elephant playmat and the owl nightlight. They're all amazing quality!

Perfect for my little grey and white nursery.

I couldn't be happier with my purchases.

The option of afterpay is brilliant and takes away a lot of stress, shipping is fast .

Not to mention; It feels even better buying from an Australian owned business. (Complete with a hand written thank you note from Kelly on the invoice)

I would recommend this company to anyone.

Recently ordered the SkipHop Chelsea Nappy bag in Black, it arrived so quick and I absolutely love it.

So much more I want to order for this bub and having afterpay as a payment option means I will be able to afford everything I want as well.

Kelly I cannot thank you enough for your assistance and patience.
Your after sales service was brilliant. If only all businesses could provide the
same level of after sales service life would be so much easier.
Especially when you are a tired and confused new mum!

Ordered the "smart lights activity gym" for my 2 month old & I couldn't be happier with both the service and product.

He loves it, keeps him occupied & tire's him out, he's always occupied in it witch no other play gym has ever done for him!

So thankful, gives mumma a couple mins to get things done while he talks to the bright lights and kicks around!

Best purchase!

Thanking you!

The baby bean bag is a fantastic new concept that is a great alternative to a bouncer. An item that will grow with my daughter for years to come.
The product has been well researched and the workmanship/fabric is of high quality.

By far the best thing I have purchased for my newborn. He suffers from wind and sometimes has trouble falling asleep laying on his back. The angle of the bean bag allows him to sleep happily without and tummy pain. One happy baby and mummy. Thank you

I purchased a gorgeous blue bean bag for my friend at work.
I was able to pick up the bean bag, already filled, en-route to the baby shower!
The mum-to-be absolutely loved the bean bag, and her little boy looks divine in it now!
Highly recommended :)
