My Son Not Only Plays Games & Watches TV, But Sleeps On His Comfy Sack

I often look at my son and my heart aches for him.  He is so limited on where he can sit, sleep, lay down, or really do anything for that matter.  Finding something for him to sit on other than his wheelchair has been challenging too.  We have tried all kinds of things – bean bag chairs, different style chairs, propping him of different ways on the couch and in chairs, nothing really works.

BuddyIn case you don’t already know, our son Shawn JR. (Bud) has cerebral palsy ,and is very limited on what he can do.  He has hardly any upper body support, so it’s hard for him to balance himself so he can sit up for any length of time.  Which is why it’s so difficult to find something that helps him sit up, and sadly enough getting him the equipment he needs has been extremely difficult, but that is another post.

Since he’s grown, his equipment has grown, and the hallway to his room will not allow his new wheelchair to fit into his room.  Which makes things a little aggravating, imagine being able to sit in one spot in the house, ever single day.  Needless to say it gets old fast, I’m sure.  When my husband and I bought our home, Bud wasn’t living with us.  It’s a long story, but two months after we bought our home he was taken away from his mother and placed in our care, and here he has been ever since.  Needless to say we have needed to build on for a while, yepie they will start the process next week.  Okay, sorry I’m really excited!

Bud just turned 13!  Yes, he is a teenager, and like most teenage boys he loves to hand out in his room and play video games.  My husband and I have been trying to find the perfect solution, something that will allow him to hang out in his room and play his video games like he wants, but will offer him the support he so desperately needs.

Comfy Sacks Review 0

Which is why I wanted to send out a special thank you to the wonderful people at  They have provided us one of their amazingly huge, super awesome, magical loungers that allows bud to sit up comfortable in his room to play video games, watch TV, and anything else he wants to do. Oh, but get away from his younger sister, lol.  She follows him everywhere, poor guy.

Have you heard of Comfy Sacks yet?  To be honest I have never been a fan of the traditional bean bag chair, good thing Comfy Sacks are nothing like them.  If not you’re missing out because these things are amazing.  Before we get going to much further let me start from the beginning.

So when we first received our 6 ft Suede Lounger from Comfy Sack, it came in this box that looked way to small to hold a 6 ft Lounger.  Once we opened the box, the magic began.  Everything started expanding.

It was easy to see right away that the inside of the Comfy Sack was made with quality materials.  I wanted to lay down on it right away, lol.  However, my husband made me wait (it’s just because he wanted to do it first I know it).  To be honest we were a little worried about getting the chocolate covered suede cover on, but no problem at all.  Mattie is a drama queen, it wasn’t that hard at all, lol.

The 6 ft Large Bean Bag Chair from Comfy Sacks was a surprise birthday present for Bud.  While he was gone at school we got everything set up, and looking sharp for him.  We just knew how excited he was going to be, you have no idea how much he wants and needs something like this.  If anything to feel like a 13-year-old boy, rather than stuck in that darn chair.

COMFY SACKS ROCK!  If you have owned a traditional bean bag chair, I’m sure you have had to clean up the little white balls that end up EVERYWHERE.  Either went to sit down and next thing you know you’re being accused of farting, lol.  Yes, it’s happened.  Not to me of course, just someone I knew lol.  Comfy Sacks are made of an awesome new memory foam chair alternative.  Which is of course made of only the best quality materials, and you can tell from the moment you open the box.

IMG_0057The shredded polyurethane doesn’t get flat, it stays nice and comfy just the way you like it.  They have a variety of fabric to choose from, and if you’re not sure which one you want they will send you a FREE fabric sample.  The people at Comfy Sacs are awesome, they want to know that you’re 100% satisfied with your purchase.  Oh, which reminds me.  When you purchase one of their Comfy Sacs you’re also receive a three-year warranty on all seams and sippers on the cover and liner.

Bud received the 6 ft Lounger in Chocolate Suede!  This thing is HUGE, there is plenty of room on it.  Normally when Bud is in his room, his little sister has to be in there two.  Not to mention there has been a time or two when dad has snagged Buds Comfy Lounger, lol.  Bud always tells on him, and I make dad put it back.


The above picture is Buds first night watching movies in his room on the Comfy Sack.  He lasted about an hour, before he looked like this, lol.  Passing out already Bud?  He normally has such a hard time going to sleep, NOT ANYMORE!  Since we received it over a month ago Bud has not slept one night in his Bed.  He wants to sleep in his Comfy Sack, and I don’t blame him.  He has very little control over his legs, when he sleeps he will often wake up crying because his legs get twisted up, and he cannot get them straight.  Sleeping in his new Comfy Sack that doesn’t happen, its molds to his body, and keeps his in one spot.  No rolling off, no twisted legs, he just stays in one spot and sleeps like a baby.

The chair does an awesome job supporting bud, whether he wants to lay down for bed or sit up and play video games.  It conforms to his body, and helps hold him up.  I know Bud loves this as much as we do, this has really changed his life. He is now able to do so many thing he was not able to before.  What makes it even more awesome is it shows in him.  He doesn’t just sit there and look sad because he has to sit in one place.  He asks to go to his room, and gets so excited when he gets to go hang out in his room.  It’s something he has never been able to do before, but always been something he wanted to do.

IMG_0076The 6 ft loungers are made to fit two large adults perfectly… or in our case one adult, my daughter and your Rottweiler, lol.  It can also be used as a couch or the loungers to relax, and stretch out on.  It’s really an amazing chair, once we’re done building on I’m getting another one for our family room.  To be honest we like it so much, my husband and I have talked about getting a few of the Comfy Sacks for it since it will be our lounging room.  You know, watch movies and kick back in.  We’re going to need at least two of these bad boys.

Simply put, I cannot recommend this product enough.  It’s not only been extremely comfortable for the family, but it has opened doors for my son that he needed.  He is now able to hang out in his room like any other 13-year-old boy would, play video games, watch TV, or just chill.  He loves his Comfy Sack, he doesn’t’ like to share it with ANYONE, not even his father which surprises me.  Normally that’s the only person he cares to share with, but nope sorry dad not this time.  This Comfy Sack is for Buddy, and we cannot thank the wonderful people from Comfy Sack enough for this opportunity.

IMG_0084What do I think about Comfy Sack?  If you don’t have one you’re missing out, it’s changed my son’s life.  He is able to do things he has not been able to do before, which makes me smile from ear to ear.  They are amazingly comfy, extremely well made, and totally affordable.  I cannot recommend them enough.  I wish I had more room on this post for picture, we have taken so many pictures lol…  What can I say everyone loves it, Bud gets to hang out in his room…. Now if he can only get rid of his pesky little sister, lol.  Since we put the chair in Buds room, if he is in there you better know she is going to be in there too, laying right next to him, lol.  I think it’s great, I love seeing my kids love one another.

I personally cannot thank Comfy Sack enough, they have given my son another option when it comes to doing something.  He is so limited, I cannot tell you how much this means to not only me, but him and my entire family.  Seeing Bud smile because he’s finally able to get the hell out of his chair is enough to melt anyones heart!

Let me just show you one more thing, it should speak for itself.  Check out Buds pictures, the one that he is sitting in his wheelchair is right before we showed him the Comfy Sack, and then of course the one where he is laying on it is after.  The smiles speaks for itself.  Thank you Comfy Sack, and for the record that he smile a big every single time he asks if he can go watch a movie or play a video game in his room.

The 6 ft Comfy Lounger in Chocolate that we received is only $275 with FREE Shipping on all their products!  You cannot beat the price, the quality, and how comfy they are.  If you want to be more comfy, GET ONE! NO JOKE YOU WILL LOVE THEM! Head over and check out, not only are the products awesome.  The customer service is out of this world, I cannot complain one bit from start to finish everything about has been amazing.

On another note, yepie!  Since we’re in the process of building on a huge den my husband and I are planning on purchasing a 7.5 Lounger for us and one for the kids.  I’m telling you these things are perfect for lounging on family movie night, or just hanging out watching some TV.  Not to mention they are easier to clean up than my couches, and more comfortable.

I can honestly say I cannot think of anything better could have done better! Normally I have something to say, but not this time.  Everything was perfect! Thank you so much ComfySack!

We did receive the above mentioned product for review purposes, all my opinions are 100% honest and heartfelt.  I truly cannot thank Comfy Sack enough, it’s not every day that a product helps my son the way this has.  I’m grateful, and feel blessed we were able to review this item.

    Jenn, I can’t thank you enough for this review! I’ve been spending a bit of time over the past year trying to figure out the best solution possible for both my son (Autism/ADHD) and my husband (Disabled Vet with joint and chronic pain issues). Comfortable sleep doesn’t come easy for either of them. This looks like it just may be what we are looking for. My son needs the security of being in an “enclosed” type sleeping area without having his legs “bound” by sheets, etc. My husband, depending on how he’s doing any particular night has issues getting comfortable enough to fall asleep and when he does sleep, he awakes stiff and hurting. I’m going to give this a try and am curious, is the 6′ big enough for your husband to stretch out and “sleep” in or should I look into a bigger one for my 5’8″ hubby?

  • Heather Pfingsten

    This is such a touching post. ComfySacks sounds like an amazing company. Thank you for sharing your story with us!

  • Lina

    That is SO wonderful!! I’m so glad you were able to find something comfortable for your son that he loves!

  • Michelle Tucker

    Just passed on this link to some people who might benefit from this type of chair. This would be awesome! Thanks for the post.

  • http://[email protected] christina sly

    I wish I had some extra money I would get one for my disabled son. He also has a hard time sitting up. He is mentally disabled and has autism. He has no core strength to speak of. He loves bean bag chairs, but they aren’t very supportive. Glad that your son was blessed with this. Have a great day :) !

  • Helena

    very cute post!the comfy sack seems a great idea for the children.

    • Jenn

      Yes they are for sure! They are great for MOm and dad too! We’re going to get one for our new den that only mom and dad can use lol… Helena they are great, and amazingly comfy!

  • rose johnson

    How wonderful!! We also have a special needs daughter she’s 23, has Cerebral Palsy and brittle bone. she is very small for her age We also find it hard to find items for her sit around the house and I know all to well about not sleeping thru the night. Going to look into this product but the price is a little high for us. But maybe I can figure something out.. Just keeping our kids happy and pain free is the only thing that matters.

    • Jenn

      Rose, that is soooooo true… They have others, I can tell you it’s really made a huge difference in Bud he loves it and doesn’t even want to sleep in his bed! Just the smile on his face when he gets to sit somewhere different is so amazing, I agree with you keeping our kids happy and pain free is the only thing that matters.. I am super thankful for ours, seeing Bud get to chill in his own room is great! Playing video games and doing things he loves, OUT OF HIS CHAIR!

  • Karmin Wheeler

    there is nothing like seeing your kids happy. I agree that a great product is worth every penny. I am glad you found it.

  • Katherine G

    • Jenn

      OMG it’s really awesome I cannot tell you how much he is… Is really allowed him to do more that he wants to do, and he is very happy because of it… Not to mention the product is amazing! Totally worth every penny…

  • Lisa R

    I saw a few reviews and they all were awesome. I wanted one of these but can’t afford it right now. I would love to get it for where my daughter lives. She is autistic and I would love her to have a more comfortable seatin ger room other than her bad and a regulaer wooden chair they supply

  • Diana DeSmit

    So glad you found something comfortable for him. It is amazing the items they can make for people anymore. You might find that you need one for another room of the house so he can be in the living room with the family and not always be hiding in his room.

  • Kyle @

    You and your husband are truly amazing people! The Comfy Sack looks like an awesome place for Bud to hang out…

    • Karen Hand

      Cindy: Yes, you know that Jenn, she does a great review. Both Bud and Mattie look so comfortable, as well as dad in the picture. I had one of the bean bags way back when and Jenn is right about the little white pellets that kept coming out. I’ve got to try one of these comfy sacks. Thanks for your post.
