On The Edge

Kingpin Chair and Bree-Z Brella

Put the “Fun” in Functional

Why settle for an ordinary folding chair when you can sit on the sidelines like royalty? You don’t have to be Paul Bunyan or a pro basketball player to get a kick out of this gigantic folding chair. Standing more than 5 feet tall, it holds up to 400 pounds and is roomy enough to share. It’s also decked out with six cup holders, so you can sit down, hold court, and let the party-goers gather around you.

The Kingpin chair is the brainchild of Brian Horowitz, the founder of On the Edge Marketing. Brian is known for
creating unique novelty items, but even his colleagues thought he might have gone too far with the Kingpin. When Brian first showed off the oversize chair, his employees called him a knucklehead -- until folks started grabbing up Kingpin chairs for tailgate parties, beach trips, backyard barbecues and more.

Brian is also the creative mind behind the Bree-Z Brella. It’s an umbrella with a built-in fan that keeps you cool and covered. The Bree-Z Brella is one of those items that you might be tempted to dismiss as just a silly novelty toy… until you remember those unbearably steamy days when even a rain shower can’t quell the heat. Suddenly an umbrella that can generate a nice, cool breeze sounds pretty inviting. Quirky, yes. But also functional. That’s what On the Edge Marketing excels at: Turning whimsical, eye-catching ideas into surprisingly usable toys.

    Sorry, but this does not look comfortable or fun at all.

    @Jenifer B.: Jennifer - think of taking this chair to the weekly soccer game at the park, a tailgating event at the local stadium, or your local beach and opening it up. With a chair that is 5'6" tall you will have people smiling, asking, and experience so much curiosity and attention it'll be a blast.

    Needs a foot rest and it would be perfect -- there are camp chairs like this (smaller tho) that you can get foot rest for that attaches (detaches too) and makes much more comfortable sit...

    I think this chair might work. First of all at games there is always someone sitting in front of you and you can't see through them. This would be perfect for adults and children who get frustrated not being able to see. Also, at the beach, you would be able to see better your younger ones by the water and no fighting over this chair as 2,3 or 4 can sit together. I would just wonder how you get an umbrella to cover it that is high enough.....

    Do you make the umbrella in a color that would reflect the sun?

    How sturdy is the chair? Can I take it as checked baggage and have it survive without a box?

    One other question. Is it light enough to carry around at a music festival?

    @Donna Reeves: I can't speak for the Airline and how they handle the bag but it should be OK. I've taken it with American and did not have a problem.

    How high off the ground is the actual seat?

    Looks like a great FUN way for two people to enjoy watching a game "up close and personal", but I'm also concerned about the height of the seat off the ground and whether having one's legs dangling over the side like that might get really uncomfortable after an hour or few, like when you're watching a 3-hr baseball game. What is your satisfaction guarantee and what is your return policy, and how much would return shipping be (and who pays for it)? Thanks much.

    @John L: We have a 30 day return policy. The customer pays for the cost to ship it back. The price would vary depending on where you are shipping from and how you choose to ship it.

    Who cares about all that technical stuff? This looks like so much fun for kids, teens, graduates and college kids ( and anybody really!)

    I think that this chair is awesome. I have even seen one made into a basketball system as well so when the kids are board you have something for entertainment as well.
