Authentic Product Warning
It has recently come to Chibebe’s attention that beanbags that mimic Chibebe’s premier line of products without meeting Chibebe’s strict safety requirements are being sold on the market.
As a company dedicated to the safety and security of children, it is incumbent upon us to make you aware of the fact that these beanbags are not genuine Chibebe beanbags and, as such, do not meet the high safety standards Chibebe has set for itself and its products.
How can I recognize a genuine Chibebe beanbag?
Genuine Chibebe beanbags are only sold via our website or via the local retailers listed on our stockists page. Any beanbag sold by a vendor or sales funnel other than these is not guaranteed by Chibebe and does not fall under our warranty. If there is another website/seller promoting the Chibebe brand, and they are not listed on our stockists page, you will see it at the bottom of this page.
Why does a “genuine” Chibebe beanbag matter?
Aside from meeting mandatory Australian Standards, Chibebe runs a series of tests on their baby beanbags and materials used on a regular basis. These tests are not mandated by Australian law, but rather a part of voluntary standards that Chibebe adheres to as a matter of protocol. These tests include:
a. Longevity tests, including tension tests
b. Flammability tests to ensure that our products meet fire resistant standards
c. Paint toxicity tests to ensure that all elements on our beanbags are safe for children
d. Plastics tests to ensure that plastic elements are safe
e. Fabric elements testing to ensure our bean bags are safe for use by babies
A lot goes into making a genuine Chibebe beanbag. We go above and beyond the required standards to help ensure that every child who uses our products is safe, healthy, and secure. Parents who want the best for their child understand the level of Chibebe’s commitment and rely on our products to keep their children safe.
Due to the amount of fraud online, we do not provide our test reports online or through email. You are encouraged to come meet us at any expo that we are exhibiting at, where we will be happy to show you in person. Photographs of these reports are not permitted.
