For many, bean bag chairs were a childhood staple that could jazz up any typical room decor and often became a lifesaver for furniture-deprived dorm rooms and apartments. With many shapes, sizes, and fabrics available today, bean bag chairs have come a long way in terms of aesthetics and comfort, serving as a cozy area for kids and teens to lounge, hang with friends or curl up and watch a movie. And given their popularity, they can also add sitting space anywhere from an outdoor living area to a classroom. Wherever they end up, different styles of bean bag chairs sport various fillings, covers, and other features that can make choosing the right one for your kids slightly overwhelming.

What to consider when shopping for a Kids bean bag chair
Kids Bean bag chairs can be an investment, many running upwards of $100. While the function of a bean bag chair seems fairly straightforward, there are some key things to consider before committing to one.
The cover material will likely impact your overall decision depending on the room aesthetic you’re going for. The cover material can range from durable cotton and soft shag covers to high-end leather and suede. Many bean bag chair covers are removable, and some can even be thrown into the washing machine for easy cleaning. Depending on whether you can spot clean regularly, have small children, or own any pets, the durability and ease of cleaning the cover can be a deciding factor in the bean bag chair you get.
The filling material in bean bag chairs can often dictate how much comfort and support you’re getting. The main types of filling are polystyrene beads, shredded polyurethane foam — also known as memory foam — and microbeads (which are banned in several cities and states since they can harm the environment). Polystyrene beads are typical in more affordable kids bean bag chairs since they’re lightweight and can keep the chair’s shape for a long period of time — but they ultimately don’t provide as much support and body contouring as memory foam.
Cleaning and maintenance
Some bean bag chairs feature removable, machine washable covers that make cleaning a breeze, while others require you to spot clean with mild soap and water. Additionally, the filling of the chair should be replaced regularly over time as they break down or compress — many brands sell replacement beads or foam separately.
Smaller-sized bean bag chairs may be a good starting point for toddlers and younger children, especially since too-large bean bags can be a safety risk. For older kids and teens, the size of the chair can determine its comfort level, with more oversized bean bags allowing kids to sleep on it during sleepovers or feel more comfortable during movie nights.
In addition to investing in the appropriate size, you should avoid leaving an infant or small child unsupervised around bean bag chairs — never allow a child to go underneath the sacks due to heightened suffocation risks. Children should also never play with bean bag chair fillings since they can pose a choking hazard — fortunately, many bean bag chairs come with safety locks that prevent them from unzipping.
