Toby Youlden and his spaniels Stickle and Blisco stood out for showing exceptional teamwork and dedication to the role in the Great Bean Bags campaign to find testers, launched to get a ‘brutally honest’ review of its products and to give children something to focus on during lockdown.

Great Bean Bags creative director Patrick Tonks said: “Toby and his pair of four-legged friends, Stickle and Blisco excelled in the application process and gave real examples of teamwork, making them the perfect fit for our role.

“We know just how brutally honest young people are and we wanted to put our products to the test in this process.

“Toby reviewed a standard kids bean bag, with Stickle and Blisco testing the comfort of our dog bean bags.

“The trio donned a Great Bean Bags reviewer uniform and gave their feedback which we will take on board and use going forwards.

“This was our first role ever launched for a tester and we hope to open more positions in the future! Could the next reviewer be you?”

Commenting on their new role Stickle and Blisco said: “Bark bark bark”.
