Sack Daddy Bean Bag Chairs Make Great Graduation Gifts May 08, 2014 09:21

Got a high school or college student who's finally made it through all the tests, or is about to? Looking for a good gift that says, "I love and support you"? How about giving them something useful, too? Like a Sack Daddy large bean bag chair.  What makes a Sack Daddy so useful? Because whether they're heading into a dorm or heading for their own home, they're going to need some furniture. That's right, furniture, not toys. At Sack Daddy, we're serious about our products (even if they are darn fun). Our bean bag chairs are only named "bean bag chairs" so you know what we're talking about. They're actually foam bag chairs. No, no, not foam like the soap you use to wash your hands. No, we mean shredded furniture foam. If you peel open your couch cushions, you'll see they're filled with a foamy material. Ours is a similar product, just shredded up into maleable pieces. They're ultra-smooth and oh so comfortable.

If your graduate is about to head into a college dorm, then we'd recommend one of our smaller foam bagchairs, like the 3-foot or 4-foot sack. These are slim enough to fit into smaller spaces, and dorms are about as small as you can get! However, each sack is still 3-feet thick, so they're strong enough to support your student after a long day.

If they're moving into an apartment or something else that's bigger, you might want to consider a lounger. These are larger than the sacks and longer, so they fit more like a couch would, up against a wall (or right in the middle of the floor if they feel like it). They're also long enough for them to snuggle up with a special someone! And the best part?   This kind of furniture won't break the bank.The 6-foot Sack Daddy Lounger is only $200. That's a 6-foot-wide Sack Daddy, big enough for two adults, for only $200 with a one-year warranty.It's a gift they'll be able to use with every movie, every book, every video game, and every quiet moment. Get your graduate something useful that will last, something they'll truly enjoy, a Sack Daddy oversized foam chair. Comfortable, affordable, and enduring.


Storm Safety Tips From Sack Daddy April 19, 2014 10:12

Sack Daddy wants to provide you with the ultimate form of comfort with our giant bean bag chairs. Crash in front of the TV with one of our great big sacks (up to 8 whopping feet!) filled with specialized shredded furniture foam, which molds around you instead of running away from you like old-school styrofoam beans. So make yourself a groove and flip on the sports,the comedies, the news, whatever, and enjoy. However, this is the time of year when the TV gets interrupted by that panic-inducing triple buzz and that little ribbon that says a nasty storm is in the area. Sack Daddy wants you to be comfortable, but we also want you to be safe during tornado season. Twisters are nasty, so here are a few very basic tips for bad
weather.


1. Have a plan. The last thing you want to do is panic in these situations. Have a plan and let everyone in the house know what that plan is. Where to go, what to grab, what to do, etc. If you have little ones, you may want to practice it. If everyone knows what to do, it gets done faster.


2. Get someplace safe. If you have a basement, use it. Otherwise, get into an interior room with no windows. Bathrooms are great for this.


3. Bring supplies. A radio is the most important thing so that you can hear the weather alerts and know if the tornado is near. Flashlights are also handy since storms like to knock out the power. Bright extra batteries for both. Take some first-aid supplies like bandages, and be sure to include all necessary medications. Aside from the essentials, you might want to bring a book or something since you could be there a while.


4. Get cover. If the worst starts happening, you'll want to put something between you and debris. One of the safest ways is to get everyone in a tub and hold a mattress or something like it over your heads. This is going to sound very strange, but it's true: a Sack Daddy foam chair actually helps in this situation. The foam doesn't just move around like old beans do; it can be molded a bit, and ALL sacks are 3 feet thick except the giant pillow, so they can take a hit. And most sacks are big enough to fit 2-5 people. Put the sack, the mattress, or whatever you have, over your head to protect it. Homes are replaceable, and we really don't mind if you tear our furniture up as long as you're safe.


5. Keep a weather eye. Your best tool is awareness. Keep an eye on the sky and the weather station warnings, and an ear out for sirens. If you're stuck in the basement, a battery-powered radio is ideal, but sometimes the TV still works. Call relatives if you must from your cell phone. Spring brings back the beauty of nature, but it also brings its wrath. So maybe our foam-filled sacks keep you comfortable while you watch the Weather Channel, maybe they protect your head from debris, but whatever you do and whatever you have, make sure you stay safe.


Sack Daddy Reviews - The Hunger Games: Catching Fire March 29, 2014 19:44

Sack Daddy Reviews fills you in on the latest DVD new releases, so you can kick back in a gigantic bean bag chair and enjoy a night off.

This month, it was the hotly-anticipated Hunger Games sequel, Catching Fire. Katniss Everdeen (Jennifer Lawrence) saved herself and Peeta (Josh Hutcherson) in the last year's Hunger Games, but it has brought anything but joy. Katniss's defiance has brought about an uprising from the oppressed districts against the Capitol, and President Snow (Donald Sutherland) wants her to calm the situation with her newfound popularity, playing up her love for Peeta. But Peeta knows it's just an act, and he's not happy with it. And Katniss's best friend Gale (Liam Hemsworth) reveals that he's interested in much more than friendship. The Capitol begins cracking down harder than ever, resulting in a new kind of Hunger Games, one that pits 24 old winners together. Katniss is about to go back into the arena.

That's a lot to cover in just a couple hours, and not all of it flows perfectly. The first act is particularly rushed, and even later acts have moments where you just wish they'd slow down. And the love triangle seems less inspired this time around, partly because there's so much else going on, partly because Katniss's affections seem to flip-flop without reason or deliberation. She doesn't like either boy, but kisses each frequently. While this is true to the book, the book went over Katniss's conflicted feelings for both and her own inner turmoils. The film just shows her kissing both boys willy-nilly.

But these are the only real complaints. The rest is a wonderful whirlwind of action and plot development. The rebellion is built up well, the most exciting part being the Quarter Quell, the new Hunger Games which feature all old stars, none of them happy about being called back into duty. Emotions are high, and the tributes' reactions to being called back are especially strong and varied to suit the characters. Action is intense, though this time around, the arena is more dangerous than the tributes, with dozens of wicked tricks like acid fog and bloody rain.

And the best news? A LOT less shaky camera work.

The side characters steal the show, with Elizabeth Banks reprising her role as the surprisingly-likable Effie and Woody Harrelson is again grumpy, yet sagely as Haymitch. Fans of the book will be delighted with new tributes such as the charming Finnick, the spitfire Johanna, kindly old Mags, and wickedly clever Beetee.

FINAL VERDICT: 4/5 stars. More of what audiences loves, less of what they hated. While the pacing is too quick and the love triangle feels forced at times, the film is still highly enjoyable with dozens of great actors playing great characters and a slow, but steady build to revolution that will be showcased in the final films.

RATED PG-13 for intense sequences of action/violence, some frightening/thematic elements, a suggestive situation, and some language.

RECOMMENDED SACK INSPIRED BY THIS FILM:  If you're on team Peeta, the Tan Fur bean bag lounger, wide enough for two.  If your'e on team Gale, the Charcoal foam lounger to hide the miner's soot.  If your'e on team Katniss, the Cinnabar 5-foot bean bag chair, single and on fire!

 


Ten Tips for Basketball Season by Sack Daddy Bean Bags March 25, 2014 22:53

1. Tend to the kids. Surprise, surprise. Kids don't just disappear when the game starts. First off, why not try involving them? Invite them to watch the game with you, and teach them a little if they're old enough. Maybe game night can be bonding time for your family on an 8-foot super-comfortable bean bag from Sack Daddy. Otherwise, you might want to try working something out with the spouse. Speaking of which...

2. If you're married, work it out with your spouse. If your spouse doesn't care for basketball, make sure they're cool with you disappearing for a few hours over and over again. Set time aside to be with them, too. Maybe help out with dinner or with the kids. Don't sacrifice your relationships over a game.

3. Work before Play. It's hard to really enjoy the game when you have a deadline coming up at work, oryou're nervous about a test. Set time aside to get your have-tos done so that when the game starts, you can kick back and enjoy it.

4. Get a DVR. When the distractions mount too high, a DVR is a wonderful investment. You can record every game of the season and then do it again for years and years to come, so you can watch the ones you missed or replay those incredible moments you love.

5. Get some good food. The game is just more fun with pizza, wings, chips, soda, beer, or whatever tickles your tongue. Again, plan ahead and you can avoid distractions.

6. Use Commercial Breaks Well. Gotta go? Forget one of your snacks? Kids need something? Use commercials while you can!

7. Get comfortable. Here's where we come into play. Sack Daddy foam chairs are the most relaxing chairs on the market for tube time. By yourself? Get a 6-foot sack in your favorite team's color. Friends or family like to watch the game with you? A 7.5-foot lounger is a great way for several to relax.

8. Kick back. Sure, there are plenty of times where you'll be sitting on the edge of your seat, but you'll always want to come back to a reclined position. However, not everybody has a fancy reclining chair with a footrest. A foam bag ottoman is a great and inexpensive way to rest your legs and stretch out. And if you're leaning forward in a tense tiebreaker, you can pick up the little ottoman and hold on for dear life!

9. Get some friends together. March Madness is a lot more fun with friends. Invite them over, or for achange of scenery, go to a sports bar like Buffalo Wild Wings or Hotshots and get some good food, too!

10. Go to a game. If you can manage it, get out and actually go to a game. Go and hear the sneakers squeak up close, cheer with the rest of the crowd, and wave to your friends watching the game at home.


Sack Daddy Giant Bean Bag Customer Reviews March 10, 2014 07:59

giant bean bag chairIt’s easy for us to stand here with a megaphone and shout, “Buy a Sack Daddy giant bean bag chair! They’re ultra-comfortable and more affordable than other giant bean bag chairs!” See? Easy! But it doesn’t mean much when we say they’re awesome. So here are a few excerpts from real people who actually bought and tried a Sack Daddy luxury bean bag foam chair.

Let’s start with our 6-foot bean bag chair. One customer from Illinois said it was “Attractive,” “Comfortable,” and “easy to assemble.” Our bean bag chairs come in a single, simple box with easy-to-follow instructions, so set-up is simple. Another customer from Florida said he would “definitely be back for more products once I have enough room.” You can see how it’s our most popular product, and it’s still only $198!

How about one of our smaller bean bag chairs, the 3-foot model that’s great for kids. “Shelly from Texas” would agree. “I bought this for my son last Christmas and he absolutely loves his sack Daddy... He uses it so much that I am not sure what he was sitting on before I got it for him!!! He loves to play his video games in his Sack Daddy. Thanks for a great product.”

What did one customer call the “Best purchase I’ve made in a long time”? Our gigantic 8-foot foam chair. This is the biggest one we make, 8 feet of sheer comfort. In fact, another customer called it “Sleepable.” “I find myself sleeping in it quite often-very comfortable.”

So the sacks are good, but what about the loungers? Don’t ask us, ask the people who bought them! A customer from Tennessee said that she and her kids fight for the 6-foot lounger when they first walk in. We don’t want to cause any domestic disputes, but yeah! They’re that good! Another customer from Texas said that it was “Kid and Pet Friendly.” “My 11 year old son lounges all over this thing with our two cats and dog playing Xbox...such a GREAT find!!!”

A church youth group in Ohio bought our 7.5-foot bean bag lounger for the kids, and they can’t seem to get enough of it! “All around, the kids love the lounger, and they’ve named it “the Thing.” They love that it’s something besides boring chairs and provides hours of fun and relaxation.” The mutual consensus?

Sack Daddy giant bean bag sacks and loungers are amazing. Check out our inventory and buy one for your house, apartment, dorm, office, or church youth group today.


Sack Daddy Bean Bag Chairs Are Great For Kids! February 21, 2014 10:19

Maybe when you think of "bean bag chairs," you might think they're something for kids and teenagers. Here at Sack Daddy, we make foam furniture for people of any age group. But even if we can't convince you that grown-ups can have fun in a big, fuzzy bean bag chair, you still  won't be disappointed when you see how well our products really do cater to little ones!

Let's start with the obvious: our 3-foot sack, the smallest product we offer. Sure, there's an adult in the picture, but it's pretty obvious that a kid would be happy there, too. It's designed for smaller bodies, and a little one can relax in what feels like a great big pillow. Plus, see your kid's face light up when they see that you've given them a special seat all their own.  Big people have big chairs, but now they have a chair that fits them perfectly!

Sack Daddy foam chairs are just plain fun gifts. What kid wouldn't want to flop face-first into  a smooth, suede bean bag chair? And can you imagine playing hide-and-seek under a bean bag chair? Or just jumping into something soft. But even better than a fun gift is a useful one. Sack chairs are just that: chairs. Your children can read their books, watch TV, play  Nintendo Wii, or even learn to enjoy some quality time with the family with greater comfort  than any other seat in the house. It's also great for nap time.

We mentioned how comfortable the sacks were, right? Well, why not sleep in one? Unlike normal chairs and couches, our circular sacks don't have arms or  backs, so kids can bend themselves in any position (and boy do they!) and still conk out for  a good, long nap. Sack Daddy is not responsible for children who no longer want to sleep in their actual beds.

But maybe your kid isn't so little. Maybe they're growing rapidly, or maybe they're even in high school. Don't worry, the 3-food sack is only the smallest product we have. We offer 4, 5, and 6 foot bean bag sacks, too, so you can pick the product that would best suit your growing children. Maybe they can even take it with them when they leave the nest and go off on their own. The best gifts are useful and last a long, long time. Our sacks are designed to do just that.

Kids love to play hard and roll around. Why not have a big, soft cushion in place to help them play safe? We guarantee your children will love playing, relaxing, and sleeping in our  specialized foam sack chairs. And if you're really noticing how much your child enjoys their special chair, just remember that Sack Daddy makes bigger ones for grown-ups, too.


Sack Daddy Bean Bag Chairs Make Great Valentine Day Gifts February 05, 2014 11:17

Perhaps you've seen the scene from Beauty and the Beast where a character tries to think of things to give someone special. "Let's see, there's flowers...chocolates...promises you don't intend to keep..." It can be hard finding a decent gift for your guy or gal, and the traditional choices we just mentioned have been overdone. How about something really unique? Like a Sack Daddy bean bag chair or lounger! 

Maybe this makes your head spin. Why would you buy your special somebody a bean bag chair? The answer is: you wouldn't. Bean bag chairs are poorly made with styrofoam pellets, hardly a fitting chair for anybody. But a Sack Daddy foam bag chair is different. Our shredded furniture foam is far softer than any old beans, and last much longer. You aren't buying some novelty toy; you're buying actual furniture that's designed to endure! 

Take a look at the sacks and loungers we have to offer! Can you just imagine flopping down in one of those bad boys? This is the definition of comfort: relaxed and lounging with a cozy foam bag curling around you. 

Hint-hint! They're also great places for two to snuggle up during a movie, in front of a fireplace, or your special niche in the corner of the room. You don't have to worry about size restraints; we have Sack Daddies of all sizes. Not a lot of room? Try a 3-foot sack, a simple and soft seat. Got a little more space? A 6-foot sack is a great big chair for two! Want to have a little fun? A giant pillow will shake things up! And don't forget the colors and fabrics! That's the fun part about Sack Daddy: everything comes in everything! Every size has the same color and fabric options. Deep red fur? White passion suede? We've got options, and so do you! 

But what about the price? That's the important part, isn't it? Well, at Sack Daddy, you can get some great deals on sack furniture. For example, our 6-foot bean bag chair is only $200 right now! Yes, that's more expensive than a bouquet of roses (usually), but it will also last a lot longer. We have a one-year warranty on our products, and your loved one can relax and be comfortable for all those hard days, movie marathons, and and parties. Plus, all products are 20-40% off right now

Why not get a truly unique gift this Valentine's Day? Not into buying gifts on Valentine's day? Okay, how about birthdays? Or just because you feel like it? Sack Daddy foam bag chairs make great gifts any time of the year.

 

 


Stuck Indoors? Sack Daddy Bean Bag Chairs Make It Easier! January 28, 2014 13:36

BRR!! Some nasty cold weather has pummeled the U.S. lately! Temperatures in the negatives, ice and snow everywhere, piled up high, and empty shelves at the grocery store.

Whether you're taking a snow day or the evenings are just too cold, you'll be spending a lot of time indoors during the winter, and it's only January. So we at Sack Daddy thought up some ways our gigantic bean bag chairs can help make being under "house arrest" more fun.

Watch TV--Put in your favorite movie, or better yet, watch that marathon you've been thinking about for a while. Plenty of new shows are starting back up for their Spring season, and a Sack Daddy foam bag chair can keep you comfortable for the whole trip!

Read a book- Maybe you aren't as much of a TV-watcher, but your library is looking dusty. Well, these indoor months are the perfect time to catch up on all your favorite books. Grab a cup of hot cocoa and slide your Sack Daddy bean bag chair or lounger to the window. What could be better than an exciting story, your favorite drink, and a soft and cozy place to enjoy them both?

Sack Daddy Bean Bag ChairTalk to somebody--TV and books can be fun, but when you have a family, they're going to want your attention sooner or later. Sack Daddy loungers are great for that because they're longer and more like futons than individual chairs, so two or more can relax and enjoy each others' company. Or, if you get one of our immense bean bag chairs, like the massive 8-foot monster, then even four adults can all sit on the chair and have a good chat. When's the last time you had some good face-time with the people around you?

Fun time with the kids--What do kids love to do? Jump around! And boy are they going to have energy, cooped up during a blizzard or cold snap. A big, furry bean bag chair is a perfect place for the little ones to play. It's soft and safe and little ones will love rolling around or jumping up and down on a big red bean bag chair (or whatever color they like best). And when they're all tuckered out, they can fall asleep on it, too.

Sleep--Actually, that's a good idea for anybody! Because we have sacks from 3 feet to 8 feet, any adult can find a sack that fits them, and then curl up and take a good nap. Or maybe it's just that cold in your room and the fireplace is warmer. Doesn't that sound nice? Imagine yourself curling up in a luxurious passion suede sack chair that molds around you. All you need is a pillow!

Winter may trap you indoors sometimes, but it doesn't have to be a drag. There are plenty of ways to enjoy the day in the warmth of your own home, and Sack Daddy has the foam furniture to make it even better.


Pillow Talk In A Bean Bag Chair Sorta Way January 10, 2014 10:52

Here at Sack Daddy, we could talk all day about our enormous bean bag chairs, how comfortable they are, how big they are, how they’re infinitely better than our competition, but today, we want to stop and look at one of our lesser-known products: the giant pillow bean bag

Now when we say “giant pillow,” we don’t just mean “really big pillow.” We don’t even mean "body pillow". We mean a chart-breaking, jaw-droppingly huge pillow. The kind of pillow that  could break your fall. The kind of pillow that guests can use as a bed. The kind of pillow where you could use the pillow case as a sleeping bag (albeit a really thin one). So how big are we talking exactly? The giant sack pillow is 72 inches. That’s 6-foot long, taller than some grown adults. How wide is it? Only 60 inches, meaning 5-foot wide. Even sideways, it will fit a lot of people! And it’s 1 foot tall, higher off the ground than any normal pillow.

Giant Pillow Bean Bag ChairWe weren’t kidding when we said this pillow could be used as a guest bed. It’s certainly large enough to fit a grown adult, or even two cuddly ones, or perhaps a couple of children for the big sleepover! Giant pillows are a ton of fun, and way better than any air mattress that deflates overnight.

Perhaps you think we’re being dramatic; who could actually sleep on a pillow, even if it’s a foot tall? This pillow isn’t filled with cotton or just any bean bag filling. The giant foam pillow is filled with our specialized shredded furniture foam, the same materials we use to stuff our giant foam bean bag chairs and  loungers.

Imagine if a Sack Daddy foam chair was shaped into an enormous rectangle.  Of course, this means it’s just as comfortable as our foam bean bag chairs. So even if you don’t actually use it as a bed, you can still lounge on it, read a good book on it, stretch in front of the TV or fireplace on it.  The cool part is that the giant sack pillow comes in all the same colors and sizes as our giant bean bag chairs.

Imagine laying down a giant furry pink pillow, or a smooth cocoa passion suede. With three textures and 32 colors, we have plenty of combinations to please your palate.  The giant pillow is regularly $250-$280, but right now, you can get a giant pillow Sack Daddy for $100 OFF and Free Shipping. Every Sack Daddy comes with a 1-year warranty. So check out Sack Daddy’s giant pillow page for pictures and order one yourself!
