Are there any promotions?
Check back with us often! There's always a sale or promotion going on.

In addition...

For 32" size bean bags, you get a liner size upgrade. This way, if you want a bigger size bean bag in the future, all you have to do is buy a larger cover and some fill, instead of buying a whole new bean bag! You will already have the larger liner! Saves you $$! Buy bean bags now.

Unless noted, coupon codes apply only to complete bean bags, only 1 per household, cannot be combined. All prices are subject to approval and availability. Sale prices will not be applied to previous orders, ever. Shipping and fill upgrades excluded from discounts. Warranty does not cover free promotional items. Limit (1) free blanket per household when offered. Free items must be included in returns, or value of item will be deducted from refund. Offers may change at any time without notice.

What is your shipping policy?
For the contiguous USA: Shipping is included in the prices shown. In-stock orders leave our doors via FedEx ground service the next business weekday if payment is received by 4pm EST.  After 4pm EST, orders will go out the door the 2nd weekday. Sometimes we may even ship earlier if possible! Add up to 5 extra weekdays for personalized items. Add up to extra 2 weekdays for 52" size.

Free shipping offer: since we do pay shipping to FedEx, which we cannot get back, each returned bean bag will have a portion of the original shipping cost deducted from refunds - we absorb the rest. Unlike other companies, we do not charge any extra restocking fee. See our return policy.

Please allow 1-5 business weekdays for delivery, barring FedEx delays. FedEx tracking numbers are available upon request.

If you receive an item damaged by shipping, you must notify us within 5 days for an immediate replacement (so we can file a claim with FedEx.)

For Hawaii, Alaska, Canada, and APO/FPO, we ship via US Postal Service or FedEx, whichever is less costly. Please contact us for current shipping costs to these destinations.

For Canada, the customer may have to pay an import tax upon receipt of the package. Please contact us to inquire.

We regret that at this time, we cannot ship to other international countries due to prohibitive shipping costs.

For all orders: any item returned to us because the recipient refused it, or otherwise could not be delivered after several good faith attempts, and if we shipped to the address provided when the order was placed, we reserve the right to require reimbursement for any return-to-sender fees if applicable, including original shipping costs. Original shipping payment not refunded. We do NOT require signature to expedite delivery. If you think it is unsafe to leave your order at your door, please let us know and we can require signature for a fee (FedEx fee, not ours).

Refer to our shipping schedule for information on delays.

HOLIDAY SHIPPING: orders placed Dec. 1 - Dec. 23 may take up to 2 weekdays to ship out after payment is received

What is the difference between regular reground and virgin bead filling?
They are both styrofoam pellets, their shape/size/density is different. Visit our refill page for more information and photos. 

Per California TB117-2013, our products manufactured after December 31, 2014 have law labels that read:

“The upholstery materials in this product:

__X_contain added flame retardant chemicals

____contain NO added flame retardant chemicals

The State of California has updated the flammability standard and determined that the fire safety requirements for this product can be met without adding flame retardant chemicals. The state has identified many flame retardant chemicals as being known to, or strongly suspected of, adversely impacting human health or development.”

*TB117-2013 requires that: "Manufacturers must mark an “X” next to the applicable statement. For the purposes of the disclosure, a product contains added flame retardant chemicals if the chemical is present in amounts above 1,000 parts per million."

Although some filling we get from our suppliers has a flame retardant amount LESS THAN 1,000 parts per million, we feel it's totally misleading to check the box that says "contain NO added flame retardant chemicals".  Because it does have a flame retardant!  That word "added" is confusing to the average consumer.

To be more clear, as with all bean bag companies, to comply with CA TB117-2013, products manufactured after 12/31/14 must be labeled a certain way.  This makes them compliant.  It is not required that they are flame retardant free.  CA TB117-2013 specifies parameters on how to label your bean bag, not that it doesn't have any FRs.  Ahh! Products errs on the side of caution and labels products produced in 2015 and later to disclose that we DO have flame retardants, even if we could potentially select the TB 117-2013 option that we do NOT have "added" flame retardants because the flame retardant amount on some of our filling is below a certain threshold. 

CA TB117-2013 can be misleading and some companies are taking advantage of the confusing wording.  Please contact us directly for more information - we are happy to answer with complete honesty!  If someone tells you their polystyrene does not have ANY flame retardants, you should question them thoroughly.

*Unfilled bean bags (cover and liner only), separate covers, and separate liners do not have this tag because it does not apply (except our fire retardant covers). Since we are not supplying your filling in these cases, the labeling does not apply.

What's the difference between shredded foam and styrofoam bean bag chairs?
Traditional bean bag chairs that most people think of are filled with styrofoam (polystyrene) pellets. Styrofoam gives you more support, allowing you to sit upright better. Styrofoam compresses, but can be plumped up by adding more filling. AHH Products chooses styrofoam filling, to offer a bean bag experience that people have come to expect and love since the 1970s.  Styrofoam filling is often preferred by people with sensory issues, because it provides push-back.

Shredded foam (polyurethane) is a different animal. Bean bags filled with shredded foam (like couch cushion foam) are more "pillow-y", and don't have the same push back on your body as traditional styrofoam. Some like this feeling, while others prefer the "normal" bean bag experience of styrofoam filling. Shredded foam also compresses, and is supposed to be able to be fluffed back up, but some find it difficult to do so.

How do I unzip my liner and refill my bean bag?
Our liners all have child-resistant zippers, please do not force them open!

To add filling to your liner, do not empty the existing filling. You will add more to plump it up. KEEP FILLING AND PLASTIC BAG AWAY FROM CHILDREN. It can be messy, doing this outdoors can help (not on a windy day!).

1. Get a friend to help. You gather the top of the plastic bag full of loose filling so there is an opening big enough to pour, but that you can control. You hold the gathered "spout" of the bag with one hand while lifting the bottom of the bag to pour.
2. Unzip the liner by putting a straightened paperclip leg into the hole on the side of the zipper head.  Look for a tiny tension bar, the paperclip leg must go under the tension bar, not between the bar and the top of the zipper head. Visit our how to unzip page for instructions and photos. 
3. Your friend holds the unzipped liner mouth wide open.

4. You pour the fill slowly into the liner mouth. Try not to agitate the filling too much since it is light and static-y and wants to fly away.
5. REMEMBER TO REZIP COMPLETELY to relock the zipper. REMOVE the paperclip.

Store unused filling out of reach of children, as it may cause suffocation.  Do not store near heat or flame.

What sizes are available?
Sizes available to order on this site include the 14" doll size, 27" small size, 32" standard size, 37" large size, and 52" giant size. Size measurements are diameters (how wide they are through the bean bag's center).

14" size (for 18" or smaller dolls and stuffed toys (like American Girl))
27" size (4.5 cubic feet) is for small children, pets, as an ottoman or stool.

32" size (6 cubic feet) is for people 5 feet tall or less.
37" size (8 cubic feet) is for everyone and every pet. The 37" is our best-seller.
52" giant size (16 cubic feet) is the most comfy, but takes up the space of an armchair. Some bean bag companies call this size a "love seat".

Please note that the 52" size comes in 2 boxes (FedEx limits the size box we can ship). The first box holds the bean bag 1/2 filled. The second box holds the remaining filling. You complete the filling of your bean bag at your location (it's easy, see how to fill).

NOTE: When comparing sizes of bean bags from different companies, make sure to ask for the amount of filling you get in cubic feet. This is the best way to compare sizes. If they don't tell you, that's fishy!

We can send you swatches of our fabric styles so that you can see and feel the actual fabric before you buy! FREE and no obligation, you do not have to send them back!

A quick note about color: the color you see on your computer may be different than the actual color of the bean bag. If you want to be 100% certain of your color choice, we recommend you contact us for free swatches.

Do you have just covers and liners?
You can purchase only the covers for all of our bean bag styles. For those times when you want to change your existing style, or if you need to make an old bean bag look like new. We also offer liners sold separately.

How do I clean my bean bag? Are there any precautions?
To care for bean bag covers, wipe up spills immediately. To wash, gently unzip and remove cover from the bean bag. Zip the cover back up and cold wash separate from other garments in a regular household washing machine to avoid possible color-transfer. NO bleach or iron. Line-dry. Although we instruct you to line-dry/ no bleach/ no iron, if you decide to do so, please be careful. Do not use high heat.

To care for bean bag liners, if spills soak through the cover and soil the liner, wipe up immediately.   Spot-clean with water and mild detergent. Do not over-soak. Liquids will bead up on the water-repel liner, but will soak in if rubbed into the liner fibers.

As with all consumer products, please use common sense and use AHH! products as intended. Keep away from flame and burning cigarettes. Discontinue use if filling is seen escaping (this should not happen under normal and intended use). For ages 3 years and up. As with all cushions, use caution with young children. Do not allow them underneath bean bags to avoid possible suffocation.

Remember, our liners all have child-resistant zippers! Visit our how to unzip page for details.

To care for fleece blankets and pillow covers, wash separately in cold water, line dry, no bleach, no iron.
