A Japanese apparel manufacturer has created wearable bean bags that can be used at any time and in any location. The newly developed funny bean bag, which is shaped like an onion, is designed to facilitate relaxation, and enable users to “totally let go”, according to Takikou Sewing representative Shogo Takikawa. The pictures of the beanbag are already a hit on Japanese social media.
“This concept was born out of the idea of a cushion that would allow you to totally let go, any time, anywhere. You can put this on and chill out in your living room, or loads of other places, that’s why we created it,” Takikou’s Shogo Takikawa said.
The wearable beanbags come in kids, medium, and large sizes and sell for about $120.
“It makes you a little heavy around the middle,” says one user. “But, it’s good fun.”
Although the wearable beanbag has been on the market in Japan for a few months, it has only gained attention recently. A video of someone wearing the beanbag became viral on Twitter, drawing attention to the product. As a result, the item has been showcased on Japanese national TV and has generated a lot of buzz. People have been going wild over it.
“It was lighter than I thought. And, it’s warm,” said another user. “I think, in winter, you’d feel pretty toasty after putting this on.
Available in three different sizes and various colors, the wearable beanbag is easy to get in and out of, making it ideal for use virtually anytime, anywhere. One thing you need to keep in mind is that the adult version weighs around 5 kilograms (11 pounds), so it’s a bit heavier than your regular garments.
They are currently priced at 7,800 yen ($60) for the small, 9,800 yen ($74) for the medium, and 15,800 yen ($119) for the large version.
