I can't stand beanbag chairs myself so I wouldn't buy one for Allison. She has the PBK anywhere chair and loves it! She got it for her 1st birthday and it is where she goes to read, play, climb, everything. She tries to get it upstairs but it won't fit through the gate and that makes her mad so there may be a second chair in her future.
I am so happy with it! And I can see her using it for a long time, I don't think she will out grow it anytime soon.
