Sink into relaxation with a cozy bean bag chair
Give your child a place to relax and add a splash of fun to their bedroom or games room with a cozy bean bag chair. Don't know what to look for in a bean bag chair? Here are the most important things to consider when buying a chair for your kid or teen.
Most bean bag chairs are filled with fire retardant polystyrene beads. These lightweight beads deliver superior support and comfort by moulding to your child's body when they plop down into their chair. Other bean bag chairs consist of polyurethane foam. The foam offers a softer feel while still conforming to the body. Unlike bead filled bags, foam filled bags should never need to be refilled.
Children's bean bag chairs are usually 24-inches to 48-inches in diametre so your child can sit on them comfortably when reading or watching a movie. They are also lightweight so your kid can lift them up and move them around easily. Larger bean bag chairs are designed for teenagers or adults and feature extra filling to withstand additional weight.
Vinyl or faux leather covers offer a shiny finish and are easy to wipe clean. Resilient polyester covers can resist UV rays and moisture so your child can use their bean bag outdoors. Denim and cotton covers are extremely durable yet soft to the touch to provide a plush sitting experience. Some beanbags also feature removable covers to make spot cleaning easier.
Bean bag chairs come in a variety of colours and prints so your kid or teenager can express their individual style. Shape is an important aesthetic aspect to consider as well. Traditional round bean bags continue to be a popular choice, while bean bag chairs are shaped like an actual chair and may come equipped with armrests. Bean bag loungers are longer in size and generally come with a foot rest so your child can kick their feet up and relax. Square bean bags resemble cushioned beds to provide the ultimate in comfort and can also be used as an ottoman or table.
