You can sit on it, lay and relax or just lounge on it! It's called Fatboy! A new modern alternative to the "beanbag" from the past. The buggle-up has a protective rain, stain and UV resistant coating. Jukka Setala from Finland designed the Fatboy in 1998 as the beanbag from the 21st century! Depending on the product, Fatboy is made from either a Nylon or Polyester fabric and has a PVC coating to make them water resistant, stain resistant and easy to clean. We reccomend keeping Buggle-up covered when not in use. Fading is possible if left in direct sunlight for an extended period of time. The fatboy is filled with virgin polystyrene beads to allow for the ultimate lounging experience!
