I have actually owned this for 2 years now and I’m surprised by how much use it still gets.
It has taken a beating by my 2 kids, my dog thinks it’s his own private pet bed, but I can still plop down on it without sinking to the floor.
Sadly, the sleeping function is so rarely used by our family. It takes a ton of fluffing to get it to form a comfortable mattress.
They have grown a lot since their Shark Tank Debut. However, their trial period is still one of the shortest in the industry. They offer a 7 day return policy if you don’t like the product. It takes a few days to fluff out the mattress, so you won’t have much time to decide.
They offer a lifetime comfort guarantee for manufacturer defects.
The first thought after looking at the product is that it is similar to a bean bag chair so you expect a bean bag feel. Well, that’s not what you are getting, as the material is a shredded polyurethane foam. This is the same material that is a byproduct of the mattress making process. So, if you have a shredded foam pillow in your house then you will know what it feels like.
You can get just about any color that you are looking for including the ever popular Zebra.
Want some good news? All you have to do is open the box unwrap it and it will take the full shape in a few minutes.
When I first opened up mine I wanted to take a peek inside to see what kind of foam that they used. I found the zipper and was like “where is the pull tab”? Seriously, did they send me a defective one?
Turns out they remove the pull tab as a safety measure. There is a quick workaround though. All you need to do is grab a paperclip and twist it until you create your own zipper pull tab. Of course, the only reason why you would go through that hassle is if you want to take out some foam. My take on that, is that as a bed I would prefer a bit more foam, but if you add a bunch more it won’t fit into the cover as a chair anymore. So, my bet is you will never bother to pull out a paperclip, so it is a moot point.
Kids will be very comfortable sleeping on it when they have a sleep over. I could see it getting a ton of use in a dorm room or a first apartment where there just isn’t room for an extra bed.
An adult would not want to sleep on it as a full time mattress option. It does not have enough cushion or fluff to keep you from waking up with aches. Unless you can just crash and have no problem falling asleep anywhere, then you’re good.
No, but it is a nice way to have an “extra bed” in a small apartment, dorm room or kid’s room. It even fits easy in the car!
I’m still surprised that my family has gotten a full 2 years of use out of it- still going strong- including the dog using it as a bed and that is a great sign of longevity. It still looks and feels new, still sturdier than ever. The only true downside is that the bed function isn’t that great.
