Frequently asked questions

Where and by whom is The Bool manufactured?

The Bool products are designed and manufactured in the Delta Diffusion studios in Belgium.  These studios have been producing the doomoo and Delta Baby childcare brands for more than 15 years, marketed by Delta Diffusion.

The site doesn’t allow me to combine certain colours. Why not?

The Bool collection allows for the combination of seven cover colours with different zip tones. Our designers advise against certain combinations however which can look great on the screen but then turn out to be disappointing in reality. These less attractive combinations are therefore not available in our collection.

Can I use The Bool outside?

It is not advisable to use The Bool in a wet environment. The materials used are not waterproof.

How do I look after The Bool?

To maintain the comfort of your Bool, we advise a refill of micro-granules every so often. It is normal for the micro-granules to shrink slightly: refills are possible to give your Bool back its inviting shape. Polystyrene micro-granule refills are available on the site (Accessories section).

My Bool has begun to shrink. Is this normal?

Yes.  Regardless of how you use it, the micro-granules in your Bool shrink over time. To maintain the full comfort of your Bool pouf, you simply have to open the inside protective tube and add granules to it. Refills of 20 litres of polystyrene micro-granules are available on this site (Accessories section).

Can I remove the cover of my Bool to wash it?

The cover is completely removable.  The outside cover can be washed in the machine at 40°C.

I would like to buy a cover in another colour for my Bool. Can I buy a cover separately?

Yes. You can view the entire collection of outside covers in the Accessories section of this site to allow you to easily change the look of your Bool or the atmosphere of your room.

What modes of payment are accepted?

You can settle your payment in a completely secure way by credit card (Visa, Mastercard) or even by bankcard (Maestro) if you have a card reader or Digipass (Home Banking).
