My teenage daughter loves her technology and to be honest seems far better than me, her 40 something mum, when using it. She has an iPad, an iPhone, in ear headphones, a wireless charger and a laptop. When chilling out in her bedroom she used to find a nearest available object to help prop her iPad up and it probably was not the most ideal position for her to view the screen from. I was therefore delighted to receive an iBeani, the award-winning tablet bean bag stand. The next step was choosing from the fantastic variety of available designs. We opted for a beautiful blue design with different coloured butterflies printed on the fabric.
The iBeani stand arrived quickly in perfect condition. I had a good look at the product and was wowed by its quality. I think that this is something my daughter will be using for years. We both love the fact that you can pick the bean bag up by the useful carry hook.
Her iPad fits perfectly in place on the bean bag and we have not had any issues with the iPad slipping off and potentially breaking. The butterfly design fits perfectly with the grey décor in her bedroom. Whilst this design is pastel and quite understated, bolder more vibrant designs are also available.
The product is very versatile and can be used on your lap, on the sofa or in bed. It has a handy side pocket in which you can store items like your phone, headphones or glasses. I cannot believe how lightweight it is which makes it portable and ideal for travel use. The best thing about it for me is that it is fully washable and comes out looking like new. I also love the fact that it is handmade in the UK.
The product actually won a “Gift of the Year award” and I can see why. The company actually offer a 30-day money back guarantee. That said, I cannot see many people wanting to return this product. User feedback has suggested that it helps prevent RSI, although I do want to make clear that the iBeani website does point out that this has not been proven.
The product has been designed to hold any size tablet so that you do not have to hold it. You can then position your device at any angle on any surface.
My daughter has spent hours chilling on the sofa or in her bed watching videos on her tablet or phone. This product has made a positive contribution to her “You time”.
This product would make a fantastic gift idea for someone special in your life and I think the product is suitable for a wide age range. I would highly recommend this item to others and would buy one or more as a gift for people in my life at the other items available from iBeani and they look fantastic.
