Our practical and affordable stuffed animal storage solution
My husband and I put on our thinking caps and figured out a practical solution for stuffed animal storage. I bought a beanbag chair cover for under $20. Instead of filling the chair with the beanbag chair pellets, we decided to fill it with stuffed animals. My daughter was ecstatic when we told her that we were going to fill the chair with her stuffed animal friends.
She has a few treasured friends on her bed, but everyone else gets to “cuddle” her in her new beanbag chair. She was delighted to help fill the beanbag chair. Plus, she knows that if she’s ever missing a “friend” she can just take them out of the chair for a snuggle.
