@benj@The_Tim You’re welcome to look for a better deal, but that means waiting until another major furniture co discontinues their kids sectionals. Except, nobody else makes kid-size sectionals like this that I know of. One can dream!
Meh the community has decided our next mission is to make you sell meh t shirts again. We want to represent our communities in the most average way we can, you know you wanted another movement to happen so here it is. I will post this every day until the t shirt sale happens.
@Aspirant_Fool@f00l@vinuash Yes. The older ones are bigger. This is totally crap by the way. The supposed reason to get these is so you can upgrade and change the covers, etc. So they shouldn’t change the sizes, ever. I actually have a single chair piece with no cover that we got for free from Love Sac because my boyfriend is a longtime customer. But it’s so expensive to complete the set, we decided to get rid of it.
@f00l@vinuash The 5 series was a smaller, cheaper new thing a while ago, like 2012-2013, with the original size retroactively renamed to 6 series. They’re no longer sold on the website, and the 6 series branding is gone from the standard size.
I looooove my regular sactional bits, and when I bought them a year or two ago the 5/6 series branding was already gone, but you could still order 5 series stuff over the phone or in person at a store if you were aware it existed. Given that 5 series stuff is showing up on clearance sites like morningsave, it seems likely that’ll be ending soon. I probably would’ve preferred the 5 series if I’d been aware it existed at the time, but I don’t regret the purchase of the regular/6 series, particularly if it’s going to get a lot harder to add to a 5 series configuration in the near future.
We just got a set from morningsave. They arrived with individual boxes for each piece. Quick ship. No damage or dust on anything, and a bunch of big dessicant packs in each box that I’ve saved in a Mason jar labeled “iPhone dryer.”
For now I’ve made a pair of “chaise lounges” for the 1-year-old. She seems to like having a couch of her own: with the double-wide seat she can get a leg up, then camp out in the corner with her books.
The dog is an 80-lb boxer. He seems a little jealous but wouldn’t fit on a 2-wide, 1-deep sofa.
(I’ve never tried uploading before from an iPad and the aspect ratio of the pic looks jacked. Sorry. It’s a picture of a 1-y-o with “daddy did my hair” bun hair and books all over the place. But mostly it’s just an action shot of the mini sofa. Sorry if it seems all distorted!)
@medz@Superllama7 agreed. My child corner cage definitely cannot fit adult furniture. Now if only I can find a child size toilet and a human size hampster water dispenser, the next 18 years should be pretty chill.
Oh, this is slightly tempting. And not cause I have kids, but because I have cats. I think it would be great for my cat who now likes to pee on my couch. I can be like no way bud, go pee on your own couch! But…seriously. I don’t even have room to put one. Plus who wants to spend this kind of money on what would in theory be an overpriced litter box. Thanks but no thanks meh.
This is nice but I have been waiting for Meh.com to sell a toothbrush for awhile now… Maybe they could turn into the toothbrush emporium and only sell toothbrushes forever.
So I am going to post this everyday.
sooo… this is basically a full scale, non working model of a useful thing that a child could actully lean back comfortably against? Child leans back, sound of velcro erupts, infomercial effects of fruit punch cup and snacks flying as child is dumped backwards, initialing a pinwheel into the ficus.
@dgmshop No they’re sturdy. The velcro attaches across the width of the seat, at a right angle to the back. There’s a bit of give at the corners where a back meets a side. But they’re sturdy enough for climbing on and jumping on, at least for a 25# kid. The “seat” portion is more like an ottoman but has no support. It’s all foam, so a 200# dad can’t really sit on it without squishing it flat… but it’s 100% functional furniture suitable for heavy use. Maybe even in a classroom or day care environment. If you have kids still in “booster seats” I’d expect these will function.
It’s less “Easy Bake Oven” and more like primary school furniture.
i’m just buying one single seat as an accent footstool. it kinda matches my Kivik sofa, it’s just tall enough that it fits under the cushions, just long enough to fit next to the chaise, and cheap enough to set food on.
@wntp Scratch that. I just looked up the prices of ottomans these days. You can get a similar sized one with storage and flip tray for the same price at target. Unless you’re building a child or dog couch, this isn’t a good buy.
It took me until the break of dawn to understand why they were called “sactionals”. Sighhh…plus, Lovesac sactionals makes my mouth move like a muppet when I say it. Why does everything have to cutesy or punny?
