Kids Bean Bags: These are Sized Just Right
Popular Fabric Choices for Kids Bean Bags
Kids Bean Bag Quick Tips
Match Style to Lifestyle
Kids are active sitters - jumping beans, so to speak. When choosing a kids bean bag style, keep your child's favorite activities in mind:
- Classic loungers have a round shape, sometimes with a seat indentation. It's a versatile style that's especially suited to younger children, who can use it for all- purpose seating and/or imaginative play.
- Our kids bean bag chairs have a more defined shape, including armchairs with oversized scroll-style arms. They're perfect for playing house or watching cartoons.
- Pillow loungers are flat and wide, a good style for naps or floor-based play.
- Video bean bags offer ergonomic support and specially designed comfort seating for gamers and movie watchers.
Fun Shapes, Patterns, and Themes
Kids bean bag chairs aren't always chairs ... and we don't just mean within your child's imagination. Fun, surprising bag shapes include animals, cupcakes, and flowers. These bag styles are perfect for decorating and/or furnishing themed bedrooms, as comfy playroom centerpieces, even oversized stuffed animals.
What's a Kid's Size?
Our kids bean bags section has been specially designed for children up to age seven. It primarily includes small bean bags, which we define as a diameter of 27 inches or less. Some of our kids bags have a larger diameter, but only if they have a shorter height that's not suitable for tweens e.g., 10.5 inches high.
The Facts On Fabrics
Keeping bean bags clean can be a challenge for parents, which is why our kids selection specializes in durable, easy-clean fabrics that wear well. Twill and vinyl are the two most popular kids bag materials. Twill is a bi-directional fabric weave, which creates an earthy, casual appearance, even with brighter colors. Twill is usually more durable and stain-resistant than flat weaves. For spills on twill, spot clean with a soft cloth and mild detergent.
Vinyl-upholstered bean bags have a brighter, glossier appearance, which looks great with fun kids colors. Because vinyl is virtually stain-proof, it's a good material for play areas where snacking and drinking happens. If spilled on, just wipe your vinyl bean bag down with a wet cloth and mild soap.
Bean Bag Safety
The softness and versatility of bean bag chairs for kids is ideal from both a seating and a safety perspective. There aren't any sharp or hard edges to worry about, and some designs even feature a safety zipper that makes it harder for curious kids to unzip the fabric cover. Speaking of which, removable covers are a good idea. They're designed to be removed and thrown in the washing machine for super-easy cleanup. If your kids enjoy jumping on the bean bag, don't worry: It can always be fluffed or even refilled as needed.
Yes Sir, Yes Sir, This Bag's Full
Though foam is commonly used to fill adult bean bags, kids bags usually have a bean or bead filler made from polystyrene. Polystyrene beads are lighter than foam, and they provide the bean-like feel that kids love about the bean bag experience. Best of all, if fluffing no longer restores your bag to its usual beaniness, refilling it with virgin bean bag beads will make it as good as new.
