I received a CordaRoy’s Full Sleeper so I could share my honest thoughts about this awesome innovation by Byron Young.
We discovered CordaRoy’s when Byron Young appeared and successfully closed a deal with Lori on the Shark Tank which airs every Friday at 9pm PST.
My husband and I are avid fans of that show and watching it is like our weekly date. We even dream about facing the 5 sharks and getting a deal. Our only problem is, we don’t have a business in the first place! LOL! But it’s great to see the stories and the people behind so many innovations.
CordaRoy’s started making these unique bean bags back in 1998. What’s so unique about CordaRoy’s, you ask?
Well unlike any other bean bag in the market, CordaRoy’s are bean bags that can be converted into beds. All you need to do is remove the bean bag cover and lay out the inside flat on the floor. And voila! You got yourself a bed!
The CordaRoy’s Full Sleeper comes in 19 different colors but the one we received was the Moss Green Chenille corduroy cover. Here are some photos of the CordaRoy’s while my husband was unpacking it.
Right from the process of unpacking CordaRoy’s bean bags, you’d already know that much thought has been put into it. The container box is tailored to make it easier for customers to unpack the contents because it has a perforated side which is on the left side of the “CordaRoy’s Beanbag Bed” logo. You can check out this video from CordaRoy’s so you can get a clear picture:
The bean bag bed doesn’t fully expand right away — it takes about 24 hours for that. But it would help shorten the expansion process if you fluff it out with your hands but you don’t really need to do that since it does expand by itself. In our case, we just let it take its natural course. 🙂
What’s really awesome about this bean bag is that it serves two purposes. It can be a very comfortable seat for when we’re watching TV or playing PS3 games or just lounging around and chatting in the living room. And it can also be a very comfortable bed for when we’d like to snuggle up as a family in the living room.
Everyone in the house loves sitting on it! Here are photos of two 2-year olds seated on the bean bag bed while waiting for story time. (In case you’re asking, no, they’re not twins. The other little boy is a friend’s son.)
I love that this can be converted into a bed! I remember the time when my niece and nephew from abroad requested to stay at our apartment and we didn’t have an extra bed for them! So my mother-in-law just gave them her room for the few days that they were here and she slept on the sofa. I felt bad for her and I really wished we had an extra bed. And now we have one for when another relative asks to stay here temporarily!
While we use the bean bag bed mainly as a chair, we lay it out as a bed from time to time especially when these 2 little guys are already getting bored inside the bedroom. It actually serves as a playground for them too!
Since the cover is machine-washable, I don’t have to worry about it getting too dirty. And I love that they have thought about child safety too! The material used for the inside isn’t the small white beads we usually see in bean bags. Instead, the inside is made of shredded foam so our kids aren’t in danger of accidentally inhaling tiny particles. The zipper of the inside bed is also clipped so kids won’t be able to open them up by themselves. Parents may open it up using a paperclip though if needed.
Overall, I think CordaRoy’s Beanbag Beds are awesome and it’s something I would recommend to anyone! It’s comfortable, multi-functional and kid-friendly!
