Have you ever noticed there are awfully slim pickings on children's couch options? I have of course seen those
horrific practical 'lounge' thingamies you can get at Kmart, the type that fold out to make a sort of sofa bed. Practical for littlies, but the only available themes seem to be Thomas the Tank, or Barbie. I know I've let a lot of things go since having Fern, but I can't do Barbie. Not yet, anyway.
For a while, I've had my eye on the stylish (and also practical - bonus!) beanbags by Cocoon Couture. But they are expensive options; my local boutique sells them for $125 each! Im not sure I can part with that much moolah for a baby beanbag, no matter how cute it is..... I might, however, part with $75. Oh wait -- I already did.
I was surfing listlessly this afternoon, whiling away nap-time when I stumbled on this NZ site called PeaKnuckle. The beanbags were listed cheaper than Oz anyway, and when I did the currency conversion it turned out they could ship Cocoon Couture to my doorstep almost half of the price of the one I can buy down the road! I know I know, buy local! But sorry folks, I'm a mum on a budget now!
I chose this one, I liked the colour and the owl motif:
So, I get the double whammy of a funky new chair for my babe, and the pleasure of stalking my mailbox over the next week or so. I'll let you know when I receive it!
