With having young children a fireplace can become more of a hazard than a beauty. Dane and especially Declan are always jumping around, about, and on the fireplace resulting in several cuts and bruises - thankfully no hospital trips just yet!
We have always ghetto rigged the fireplace with foam of all kinds and it's honestly never stayed put. Also lets be honest it was more of an eyesore than anything but what else were we going to do? It's not like there were too many other solutions out there that worked any better. Then a few weeks ago I cam across a solution I wish I had known about years ago!!
Jamboo Creations was started by parents looking for the same solution to this normal problem encountered by tons of new parents! In case you were wondering "Jamboo is an acronym derived from combining the initials of our son, Jack Allen Maguire, who we affectionately call Boo." Hearthsoft is the amazing creation made by these parents which is a protective AND comfortable cover for your fireplace.
"Each HearthSoft™ is individually cut and professionally sewn in our very own workroom in Atlanta, GA. Our goal is to make quality products that are truly unique in design and function for children in the home."
These are unlike anything I've seen before and I could not be happier I discovered Jamboo Creations. Thankfully they agreed to send me over one of their Heathsofts to review. These are all custom made to fit any size fireplace and currently come in 28 different colors and fabrics.
I cannot begin to tell you how much I love my Hearthsoft. Not only does this add a bit of flare to my living room but it creates even more seating area for when we have our large (and frequent) get togethers. As you can see from my pictures the boys absolutely love that they can jump on the Fireplace now without us yelling at them to stay away or without fear of hurting themselves.
Every single person who has sat on this has said they could not tell (if they didn't already know) that there was a brick fireplace hearth underneath. This is super fluffy and definitely couch comfy so you don't have to feel like you are sitting on a rough surface. Besides sitting you can also tell its comfortable enough to pass out on (haha) as the picture below is my sister after a long but typical family Easter (kind of staged).
Cost/Available to purchase: $289-379 HearthSoft
Recommendation: I don't know that I could say a single bad thing about this company or product! This is a quality made product sure to last a lifetime and more. I have already told my husband as well as everyone I know that I will not live in another home without a Hearthsoft as part of my decor! I know it may seem expensive but this really is reasonably priced for this type of quality and solution in my opinion not to mention it will last you a lifetime (or so I am pretty sure it will)! This is definitely something we will be removing and taking with us to the next house!
