NOT WATER RESISTANT & FABRIC PROBLEMS
my fatboy beanbag's supposedly 'strong, almost completely indestructible' fabric has started delaminating and looks dreadful. I contacted fatboy and they tell me it is NOT water resistant (although they advice washing with a damp cloth), and that it must have got wet or been in a humid environment. I have never left it outside & it has never got wet. They refuse to replace it & don't want to know. The fabric obviously breaks down after a while. I expected more.

I love my Fatboy but unfortunately so do my two cats
I bought a Fatboy for myself 18 months ago but now it belongs to my two cats as they lie on it all the time and there is no room left for me.
It is very comfortable and once I slept on it all night (after pushing my cats out of the way).
I keep a thick fleece blanket over the Fatboy at all times to avoid cat claw punctures (it did get a little puncture but I managed to seal it back up with tape).
Some of the other comments said the Fatboy was too cold or warm. If you put a blanket over it, it won't get cold. And it has never been too warm.

Excellent!! best beanbag on the market
I purchased the orange beanbag for my front room and its a hit with guest all the time. Its so comfortable and very long wearing. Also makes a nice foot rest when sitting on the sofa.

An Alternative View--look at one before you buy
I bought this sight-unseen for my teenagers at Christmas, based largely on reviews here. After using it for a month, if given the chance, I would not repeat the purchase.
Many of the good points mentioned in other reviews are true--very well made, easy to clean, able to arrange in many shapes/postures, etc.
BUT: 1)It is too big. It takes up an enormous amount of space. We had looked at the measurements, of course, but we thought we'd be able to stand it in a corner when not in use. Even this way, it is quite a pain to stow. We had planned that because it was light, the boys could carry it between their room an the lounge. It's light enough, but quite awkward to handle because of the size.
2) It gets quite hot after a while. I watched a DVD in it the other night. By the end, it was still comfortable, except my back was quite sweaty. I was glad to get out of it. If it's like that in January, I doubt it will get much use in July.
3)My younger son, 13, finds he is not heavy enough to easily get into the position he wants (sadly, not my problem!).
I would definitely recommend seeing one in person before buying.

Best of the Bean Bags
Top quality. Super easy clean and very comfortable. Takes any shape you wish to give it. Works well just for lounging around or as a seat.
Expensive but worth the money. Makes the competition look cheap and poor quality.
