Elephant bean-bag chair

Italian Etsy seller ConceptualDevices made this $450 elephant beanbag chair, "a place where to read (and write) fairy tales."

Its external lining is made of a soft fabric used for outdoor upholstery produced by Sunbrella which is easily washable, waterproof, oil proof and sunlight resistant. The internal lining is 100% cotton and contains the expanded polystyrene padding.

TANTO is manufactured in Italy. Elephant is the first character of a wide collection of pachyderms that we intend to make.

  1. I’d love something like this for the children’s room, except that it would probably self-destruct within months after 100s of children jumped on it.  $450 worth of design, great, but is it $450 durable too?

    1. It’s actually $450 for the beanbag, and another $450 for shipping. And as it is “manufactured in Italy” it shouldn’t even be listed on Etsy. It’s not made by the seller.

  2. Dear Readers,
    thank you very much for all the constructive comments.

    The prototype as been tested for more then a year with kids. We were able to wash anything spilled on it (you name it).

    Shipping costs is 30 euros max depending where you purchase.

    TANTO was designed by mysef: http://www.conceptualdevices.com toghether with my cousin who manufacture it as a result of a summer workshop with our daughters. Since she works with sewing machines and I with computers we decided that I would run and Etsy shop. This was considered not “personal” enought by Etsy and they shut it down without any previous notification. So we decided to open an other shop:

    warm regards,
