A true blast from the past, bean bag chairs have been making a comeback with more varieties than ever before. From inflatable to foam-filled, you'll be able to find an option that best suits your family's lifestyle and seating needs. Versatile and portable, you'll discover these amorphous bean-filled seats in playrooms, game corners, and classrooms around the country.

Many bean bag chairs are huggable and plush just like a stuffed animal. Manufacturer Big Joe has embraced these similarities and turned their Dawson the Dog Beanbag Chair into a giant-sized stuffed animal you can cuddle and use as a chair. The chairs come with their own matching “Li'l Buddy,” which can be stored in the seat's built-in pocket. Does your child have another favorite animal? Then check out some of the other models, including Oscar the Owl, Penelope the Pig, Emerson the Elephant, and more.
