This week, I am going to tell you about an American-made product that you might not know you need, but I’m going to tell you… you need it. It’s a Lap Log, made in South Carolina by Bamboosa. A Lap Log is a cylindrical bean bag (buckwheat hull bag, actually), sewn into an organic cotton twill cover, which has a pocket to secure a hand-sanded repurposed wood insert that holds your iPad,Kindle, Nook, or any kind of tablet. It rests comfortably on your lap and adjusts simply on any surface. It is light, comfortable, even kind of cuddly. I loved it the moment I got my hands on it.
My Lap Log arrived in a nice sturdy box, and when I opened it up, I got a pleasant surprise. The Log was nicely wrapped in tissue paper with a discreet recycled paper sticker on it. Because the Lap Log comes in a variety of colours I was able to choose the one I liked the most! Would you love to see it? Okay, here it is!
The one I received for this review is called Orchid Blooms. I love the flowers, what can I say, anything with flowers in a great item in my books! Each Lap Log is around 11″ X 6″, though the dimensions may vary slightly because they are handmade. The width of the interior of the wooden insert is 0.625 inches, so anything under that will fit.
I really wanted to test the Lap Log in many different places. From the Hair salon, in the car with my kidlets , letting others try it. To the library and more. I got some awesome reviews from clients and other family members how nice it is to be “handfree” while still being able to see the screen on their lap, on their desk to the floor and coffee table. I know my own daughter wanted to “keep it “ for herself . I think I just might have to get her one for her birthday in a few months.
Would love to find out your opinions as well, I would love for you to go to their website http://www.thelaplog.com and tell me 2 of your favorite items , what color, or prints would you love to see in your house?
