We came across doob bean bags during our visit to the National Museum of Singapore. Gallery10 was filled with fun, colourful and ultra-comfy doob bean bags that are truly eye-catching. Edison refused to leave the moment he had his butts on them. Yes, they’re SO comfy that you wouldn’t want to get up! 😀
So, imagine my excitement when doob sent over their latest product – The Oomph, Polyester Couch-Shaped Bean Bag, for my review. I jumped at the opportunity because Our Little Butts are certainly in need of something comfy. Haha! 😛
About doob Bean Bags
Doob is a local bean bag producer known for its colourful and quirky design. When I first landed on doob website, my first impression was “Aiyo, why so cute one?” LOL. I love the cheeky vibe, colourful design and cutesy play on words on their website.
First of all, there are many doob bean bags to choose from (you may be confused at first!). The easiest way is to group them by material types:
- Rayon (cloth like, machine washable)
- Polyester (spill-proof, damp wipes to clean)
- Synthetic Leather (water resistant, damp wipes to clean)
On top of that, they come in various shapes, sizes, colours and even level of ‘shiokness’ to suit every need. There’s also an option for indoor and outdoor use. The chart below showcases the different types of doob bean bag in the simplest way.

The Oomph, Polyester Couch-Shaped Bean Bag Review
Personally, I prefer a couch-shaped bean bag because I have a pear-shaped bottom. Hah! And I’d prefer a spill-proof one too (the kid is still prone to spills!). Polyester is perfect for me as it’s spill-proof and easy to maintain – just wipe with a damp cloth to clean without the need of removing its cover.
As you know, bean bags are meant to be formless. The less the structure, the more comfy they are! However, being shapeless also means that it may not be so aesthetically-pleasing to some – especially those who are after comfort and style.
Therefore, the brilliant designers at doob came out with The Oomph! This bean bag stays in shape, so I find that it looks nicer than the older models and yet it offers the same level of ‘shiokness’. 😉
Like all other doobs, The Oomph has a removeable outer cover and its durable inner bag is sealed with a child-safe zip. It comes in two sizes – medium and large. I chose the large one of course! There are also 10 colour options, so you can definitely find one that matches your home interior.
There are a few things that I really like about The Oomph:
1. Its size is JUST right! With its wide body, high backrest and arm rests, I can sink into it comfortably. It isn’t too soft or too low until I’ve difficulty getting up. It moulds into my body shape and gives me a delightful hug with plenty of back support. It’s SO comfortable, the moment I sink into this glorious comfort, I wouldn’t want to get up (you’ve been warned!).
2. Its lightweight and easy to move around. We can move it to the living hall when we watch a movie, put it in our room to chillax, or even use it as a lounge chair at the balcony. It’s a versatile piece of furniture that’s also fun and groovy.
3. Its ease of maintenance. As I’ve mentioned above, I only need to wipe the exterior with damp cloth without the need to remove its outer cover.
4. Lastly, it’s safe and durable. The outer cover is thick yet smooth to touch. The double-lined bean bag won’t tear or break easily. The inner bag has its zipper cut off to stop those curious and itchy fingers. So, I’m assured that no matter how my little monkey jumps into it or try to mess with it, it won’t break apart LOL.
Interestingly, doob bean bags come in a wide variety of colours. We choose barley beige that is a perfect complement to Edison’s room. In my opinion, even if you choose a vibrant bold colour, it will turn out fine too – just because bean bags are meant to be FUN. Right? 😊
Lastly, as you may be aware, the pellets inside the bean bags tend to compress after a period of time (depending on your usage). Therefore, the kind folks at doob are giving all their bean bag customers ONE free top-up for each bean bag ordered. Free top-up, yay!
In a Nutshell
Bean bags are something we all love flopping on – no matter how old we are (let’s admit it! LOL). With so many designs, shapes, sizes and colours to choose from, doob bean bags are the perfect choice to enjoy easy comfort and fun, both indoor and outdoor. We LOVE our doob so SO much and we highly recommend it!

SoftRock Living Bohemian Review
I wouldn’t call Bohemian a bean bag, although it can also work as one. It’s more structured and furniture-like, thus calling it a lounger would be more appropriate.
Firstly, I LOVE IT for its versatility. I can use it as a chair in my living hall, a bed in my room, a lounger at the balcony, an armchair, a napping nook, and even a bean bag – it’s all up to you! It’s lightweight and easy to move around. Seriously, nothing can get more versatile than this.
Secondly, it looks more sophisticated than an ordinary bean bag or lounger. And it’s much more cosier and comfortable than a sofa or armchair. Trust me, it’s SUPER comfortable to ‘nua’ on it. After a long day at work, I look forward to going home and rest on my ultra comfy Bohemian (I’m definitely not sharing it LOL!)
What makes it so comfy, you may wonder. Bohemian is uniquely designed to follow the natural contours of our whole body, providing superior comfort that is perfect for relaxing and even sleeping.
Thirdly, Bohemian is constructed using the finest materials and yet low in maintenance with removable covers that can be machine-washed. Additional cover can be purchased separately too. At the side of it, there’s a small compartment where you can conveniently tuck-in your TV remote control.
Bohemian comes in two colours – Sandstone (pictured here) and Granite (grey shade). The light neutral colours are timeless classic in the interior design and also a perfect match for Scandinavian style.
In a Nutshell
Perfect for both home entertainment and lounging, the Bohemian is unreasonably aesthetic for something that provides SO much comfort. Uniquely designed to follow our body’s natural contours, it’s perfect for body and mind relaxation. If I have space for only ONE chair, I’ll definitely choose Bohemian. No doubt about it.
