Promising review: "I’ll be honest, I was a little skeptical to buy these because they were so cheap. When I got them I was a little concerned they wouldn’t look appealing because they’re thin pieces of plastic with little foam adhesive pieces. But I was very wrong, i put them in my daughters room and they really helped bring the room together." —Zahra

9. A pack of beanbag covers with a neutral pattern that'll complement any decor and save you from drowning in a sea of stuffed animals. Now you can stash the plushies away to create chic seating. The best part? Your kids won't have a clue!
Promising review: "I shopped around before choosing these, and I ultimately settled on this two-piece set for the value and cute-but-not-cutesy neutral pattern. I was honestly a bit concerned about the size both because of my kids' ages and number of toys, but it was unfounded; we had to resort to putting in throw blankets on top of the stuffed animals (and they had a LOT of stuffies) to floof it out into a full beanbag seat. Both boys have been enthusiastically using these! I am not worried at all that these will hold up to my boys dragging them all over the house, plopping on 'em wherever, for a good bit of time to come. I really enjoy that there's one for each kid and it keeps their stuff contained." —Prime shopper

Can easily be used as a pillow because it is so large. It arrives compressed in shrink wrap so it can be mailed in a smaller box. It immediately puffs into its true size once the plastic is removed. Bought this on a lightning deal and couldn't be happier 👏👏👏"—LoriAnnR
