Lounging in a bean bag chair is the ultimate way to chill out! There is nothing more comfortable than plopping down on a huge bean bag and having those foam beans conform to your body. They are great for relaxing in front of the TV, as an extra seat in a family room, and even as a place to sit while playing video games. The possibilities are endless with these comfy seats!
I recently had the chance to review one of the HUGE bean bag chairs from BeanBagBoss. Their bean bag chairs measure a whopping 4.5' x 5', which is 11 cubic feet of pure comfort! When I went online to select my bean bag for review, I was pleasantly surprised at all of the different colors and patterns they offer. I had never seen such wild looking bean bags before. There are all types of patterns from color splashes to plaids to dots, and you will even find unique patterns like a city scape. So cool!
We finally decided on a multi colored leopard print. If the day ever comes that I can turn our game room into a play room for the kids, I want them to have bean bag chairs to sit on when they are watching TV or just lounging around. I knew the bright colors would be a huge hit with Rylie and Bryce. Our bean bag arrived just a few days after I placed the order, and the kids were so excited to try it out. Look how big this thing is!
As you can see, our BeanBagBoss bean bag takes up almost the whole space inside of our sectional sofa when laid flat. It is so stuffed full of beans that it makes it even bigger when it isn't flat. I honestly don't think this will ever lose it's shape or go "flat" on us.
The bean bags from BeanBagBoss come in nylon, faux leather and lamé. The bean bag we received was nylon. When I think of nylon I think of thin material, but this is more like a thick canvas. It is very durable, and will not tear easily. According to BeanBagBoss, their chairs are stain resistant, and are easily cleaned with a damp cloth and mild soap. That is my only worry with this. Most of the bean bag chairs I have seen are vinyl, which clean up very easily. This seems like it would soak up more if something were spilled on it, and would be more difficult to clean. Luckily we have not had any spills on this, so we haven't had the chance to test out just how stain resistant it is.
There are so many seating positions that you can get this bean bag into. Here is a video showing the more popular ways to use it...
We decided to try out a few of these positions ourselves. Rylie was having a lot of fun trying to demonstrate. First she tried it in the flat position, and then in the horsy position. At one point she toppled over and thought that was super fun, so all she wanted to do was ride the bean bag horse after that.
Bryce attempted to demonstrate the teardrop position for us, but then decided to see if he could climb up the side of the huge bean bag instead. Of course Rylie soon followed suit.
As you can see, my kids LOVE this gigantic bean bag! If they are watching TV or just horsing around in the family room, they are usually on it. In fact, they are even willing to share it while they watch their favorite movies after bath time.
One thing I really like about these bean bags is that they are safe for kids!
The Boss’ bean bag chairs appeal to everyone, so he has made them safe for all ages including kids. All bean bag chairs are fabricated with the toughest, most superior materials. Each bean bag chair is equipped with a zipper concealed by an extremely strong Velcro strip, which is almost impossible to open with adult bare hands. This will prevent even the most mischievous kid from reaching the inner foam beans.
If you are looking for a super-cool, fun place for your family to sit, you have got to check out these awesome bean bags! They retail for $159.99 to $199.99, depending on the material. I do feel those prices are a little high, but they are right in line with other similar bean bags. I have yet to see one as full as these! And the boss pays shipping, so there are no extra charges on top of the price.
