Who is Chibebe?
As if you don’t know! But let us amuse you….. we are a creative bunch who adore design and high quality products, and we only produce what we deem to be the very best product of its genre. Our first baby, the Chibebe Snuggle Pod, is a world famous baby bean bag, and is on every Mums wishlist. Started in Melbourne, Victoria, in 2007 , we launched the very first baby beanbag to Australian Mums and Dads, and remain the most preferred brand of all.
So, in a nutshell, we’re the guys responsible for making thousands of precious babies super happy as they chill out contentedly in their safe, comfy and cool Snuggle Pod baby beanbag, and do so day after day.
Why did we create Bambeano?
We understand having a child raises the cost of living, so in January 2013, we gave Chibebe a baby sister, called Bambeano! The Bambeano range makes it possible for parents to own a product that replicates the Chibebe in quality and design, with no compromise on our high standards, yet enjoy all the functionalities at a lower cost.
So if Bambeano is no different to Chibebe, why is it priced at a lower?
Firstly we know parents wouldn’t want a lower quality bean bag just to save costs, so we kept the design and manufacturing process the exact same. Yep, that means the same attention to design, but with a more ‘eclectic’ vibe to it; materials used are the same high quality and meet the same standards as Chibebe; they are laboratory tested (note: not just ‘tested’, but laboratory tested!), and craftsmanship is still the exact same process. We will never, ever compromise on our high standards, and we know that’s what you want for your child.
So how is the price for Bambeano lower than Chibebe? Simple. We don’t advertise. We don’t spend money on marketing the Bambeano brand. And most of all, we don’t double up on manufacturing accessories for the Bambeano brand, but we don’t need to, cos you can use ANY Chibebe accessory with our Bambeano seats.
Okay so there’s no difference between the two?
Not at all! Except for the designs, everything between a Bambeano and Chibebe brand is compatible with one another. The only difference for you is that we don’t offer accessories in Bambeano, like the Pod Rocker and Pod Warmer that we have over at Chibebe.com.au. However you can purchase spare baby and toddler seat separately for them. You can also purchase extra colored seats at Chibebe for use with Bambeano. Consider them the same brand, cos you can mix-n-match them both!
Why should you consider Bambeano?
Because you already know of Chibebe, and you know how perfect the Chibebe Snuggle Pod is. Bambeano is exactly the same quality and you get a choice of other designs that you might prefer. We just made it so that you don’t have to go out and get a nasty, unsafe chair for your child, because in the end, it’s all about the children and their safety. And awesome products, of course!
