“Second only to a bed, beanbags are perhaps the most comfortable objects on earth. Couches are great too, but there’s nothing like having a soft, cosy, life-sized cushion that moulds itself according to your body shape. A perfect fit is always guaranteed!

What’s better than good ol’ beanbags though, are beanbags with awesome designs, something that doob has plenty of. The local beanbag producer – know for its colourful and quirky designs – are planning to release a brand new collection of pastel-hued, macaron-looking beanbags, which will launch this Christmas.”

“Want to enjoy a dip and read at the same time? Then, check out the new doob Plopsta’ Alfresco Bean Bag ($329), which works on or off the water. It’s durable and dries easily once you’ve had your fun. Best of all, it’s strong enough to fit three people in one seating!”

"What better way to dominate FIFA14 than in a living room, among friends, with a doob Bean Bag - quite possibly the comfiest of all bean bags anywhere. The best thing is the sheer variety of ways to lounge on them.

We took three to Sitex; they were a welcome relief for aching legs after a long day of shopping."

A Whole New Bag of Tricks

What's doob®?

doob® makes affordable, chic bean bags. Beyond furniture, doob® is also a culture; it’s built a fan base through lifestyle-focused marketing and energetic online campaigns.

doob® broke the beanbag cartel (a line other finance writers can only dream of typing) through pricing, innovation, and what industry experts technically call being damn happening. So if you need a beanbag, drop by getdoob.com; their products are better (and cheaper) than what you’ll find in furniture stores. Also, free delivery!

doob® revels in some local pride!

"Bean There, Done That?

Bean Bags? Aren't they lumpy sacks that try to pass off as furniture, favoured by students who can't afford actual chairs? Well, you haven't met doob bean bags. Designed by Singaporeans for Singaporeans (the dimensions and materials used are suitable for local sizes and our tropical weather), these bean bags are chic and, some say, annoyingly comfortable. We're most impressed by their ingenious versatility - the large doobsta' can transform from an armchair to a recliner with a few well-placed pats. At $199, the doodad doesn't come cheap, so you can be sure that the doobsta's many fans love its bean bag-ness (and not 'cos they can't afford a real couch). doob® Bean Bags come in other shapes and sizes, and are good for lounging in, watching TV on, and for feeling like you're young and carefree again."

What's cooler than a doob® Bean Bag? A hot model on a doob® Bean Bag!

FHM Singapore got hold of a few doob® Bean Bags for a photoshoot with Russian model Margo P.

"The awesome bean bags for this shoot came in courtesy of doob® Bean Bags. They offer a colourful and chillaxing range of sleepers that'll hold firm, keep you steady and snag you for good. You can get synthetic leather, durable nylon or cool cotton - for a variety of purposes. Though most of it, we reckon, will be horizontal."

- FHM Singapore, Nov 2011 issue
"We knew right from the start that bean bags were a must have and we wanted Doob Bags!
One of the reason and perhaps the main reason why we chose Doob Bag over other bean bags in the market is the fact that it is plushy and comfortable without being too soft and deflated. There are definitely ‘softer’ bean bags out there compared to Doob Bag but somehow they retain the indent of your body and in my opinion will likely not last very long. I would hate to sit in a super deflated bean bag in 6 months time.

Our Doob bag on the other hand may feel alittle firm to the touch but trust me, it is super comfortable once you land your butt on it. Only problem is you might never want to get up!

The Doob bag comes in different shapes and sizes so you can select the one which works for your space or purpose. You can also choose the fabric (polyester, synthetic leather or rayon). We went with the polyester fabric because it is water resistant which is perfect when you have little kids that are spill monsters.
We also love the fact that the Doob bag is a double-layered design which means no little bean bag pellets spilling out and you can remove the cover for cleaning. The bean bag also comes with a 1-year guarantee and free delivery within Singapore (so no lugging beanbags in your car boot from the store)."
"When I was younger I used to persistently beg my parents for a bean bag because I thought it was really cool and comfortable and just the perfect thing to sit on after a long day, and I was really jealous of friends or cousins who had them. 10 years later, I still feel the same way: I even contemplated getting a bean bag for my university dorm room a few years back, but yet again, my beanbag plan was twarted because my roommate veto-ed that option citing reasons like it would take up a lot of space in our already-crammed room."

"NOW, after a really difficult and arduous furniture journey (#firstworldproblems), I can finally say I own a bean bag, all thanks to the lovely people at doob Bean Bags and Naiise! The Large Plop Beanbag is now a beloved fixture in our living room, and Imran has been secretly plotting a plan to steal my bean bag back to his home, which he says will be perfect for his "PS3 area"."

"Loving this bean bag because:
  • It is made of durable polyester/nylon and coated on the underside with spill-resistant PVC, which means you never have to worry about getting your bean bag dirty, just a wet cloth to wipe off any spills or dust will do!
  • It is also fur-resistant so your pets can be on it too! Although my cat doesn't seem to take a liking to the beanbag...
  • The bean bag is also double-layered for durability, unlike cheaper single-layered bean bags that make a huge mess once the stitching gives way (not to mention that it's a lot safer for kids).
  • AND, the bean bag is born and bred in Singapore - I was really impressed that the bean bag was actually made just for me days before delivery, this way I know I'm receiving a brand new bean bag, instead of one that might have just been sitting in a store room collecting dust, or sat on by people."
"Designed by Singaporeans for Singaporeans, doob Bean Bags are of high quality, chic, and incredibly comfy as well. We received the medium-sized Plopsta, which the monkies immediately fell upon it in delight... and refused to move thereafter."

"We all know how a bean bag often sucks you into whatever position you plopped into it. But the amazing thing about the Plopsta is that when it comes to lazing positions, it is highly versatile - which I never thought a simple bean bag could be capable of."

"There is no denying that I am oversized, so if there is something that I lay on and can STILL retain a fair semblance of its original shape then it has got to be a miracle. I have snuggled in it for long periods on the doob and so far, it has done a neat job in fluffing back to the shape it was in before I burdened it with my presence."

"Most importantly though, I learnt that this doob truly eats one's will to move. First it was the wifey, then the monkies and finally, I fell prey to it. It is supremely comfortable, to the point where the wifey had nearly fallen alseep in it quite the number of times."

"Maintenance-wise, it is extremely easy. Each doob Bean Bag consists of a durable inner lining that holds fresh polystyrene pellets, and a removable outer cover which can be washed or swapped with another doob cover. I don't know if it has to do with the Polyester with PVC undercoat fabric material, but another notable thing about the doob is how well it manages to breathe and doesn't make our skin all sweaty and slimy after prolonged lazing.

You can probably tell by now that we love our bean bag from doob by now. So if you are looking for a funky chair for your home but do not want to go the traditional route and yet sacrifice comfort, it is time to get doob-ed.

Your posterior will thank you for it."
Hi Team doob®! My boyfriend absolutely loves the beanbag and it's being taken over by his 2 nieces as well. He gets home to see them already on it. Hahaha. Thanks for the excellent service and for helping to get the bean bag to him not too long after his birthday even though it was a long shot. Am definitely recommending doob® to anyone I know who wants a bean bag! Much love!

Our girls simply love the beanbags, they bounce around on them for most of the day, and they are holding up well considering what my girls put them through.... we will be ordering more since the kids don't let us use them! Great colour choices, and wonderful personal service that I can't criticize. Many thanks and I hope your company goes from strength to strength!
