BEAN FILLING FAQS
Updated 19/07/17. Bean inclusion applies to all Snuggle Pod orders from this date, for a limited time only.
BEANS INCLUDED VIA A KMART GIFT CARD!
We don’t want to send a large, unattractive box to your doorstep, and we certainly don’t want to send it like this to someone you’re gifting. That’s one of the reasons the Snuggle Pod doesn’t come filled. It’s also why any reputable beanbag company doesn’t feel the need to include beans with their beanbags. But, we also know you want the complete package, so we do include beans, in a way that combats excessive shipping charges and doesn’t sacrifice on a gorgeous delivery.
All Snuggle Pods come with a KMart Gift Card to redeem for beans at your local Kmart store, or online here. Ordering online will incur a delivery fee of about $12. So if you have a Kmart close by, just pop in, go to the beanbag section and grab a 100lt bag of beans. Pay for it at checkout by using the gift card we send you, and you’re done!
WHAT SORT OF BEANS DO I NEED, TO FILL THE SNUGGLE POD?
Just normal ones! Kmart only sell one type of bean filling, so you won't get confused. Just go to the home furnishings section to find the beans. They come in a 100lt bag. If you want to know what you're looking for, check them out here.
HOW DO I FILL THE SNUGGLE POD WITH THE BEANS?
Easy peasy! Every Snuggle Pod beanbag comes with its own internal Chibebe monogrammed beanbag sleeve, of which is an exclusive, registered design of ours. We call this the 'inner bag'. Using a paper clip, unzip the inner bag and pour the beans in. We recommend filling this in a bathtub, so that you can quickly clean up any overspills of beans. When you're done, simply pop this inner bag into the Snuggle Pod base cover from underneath, making sure the shape of the inner bag and cover match, by slipping the inner bag in 'head first' so that it meets the top (head) of the cover inside. The rest should settle nicely inside the cover. Don't forget to remove the paperclip from the zipper afterwards!
HOW MANY BEANS DO I NEED?
10,986 beans, to be exact...but a less precise way we can recommend is that you fill the inner bag, to about three quarters full— approximately 65-70 litres of beans (about 2/3 of a 100lt bag). Remember, the more beans you add, the harder the Snuggle Pod becomes. If fewer beans are added, the more the baby will sink further into the Snuggle Pod. You want a nicely inclined (upright) seat. Here's a fun pic for indication.
In the end, it is up to the discretion of the carer to ensure the right amount of beans for the ultimate Podding experience for Bub!
As Bub grows, and is able to sit upright, unaided, you will start to use the toddler seat, and we recommend removing some beans as they grow to make it more comfy and inclined for them.
