Aussie kids have been lounging on bean bags for decades, and whether it’s for snacking, slinking, slouching or snoozing in, the love for them is still going strong.
In fact, bean bags for kids now come in more shapes and sizes than ever before, from contemporary cool to classically cute – and to help you in your search, we’ve tracked down the best of them.
1. Honeysuckle & Lime
These unique bean bags are some of the sweetest around, and they’re each been crafted from ethically sourced heavy-weight cotton for longevity and softness. Want to stop the kids fighting over them? Each bag comes with a rear handle that can be personalised with your child’s name.
Stretchy and soft, these glorious round chill-chairs are unlike any others. For starters, they come with a sensory-friendly cover that wraps kids in complete comfort, and they also come ready-filled with special beans for max cosiness.
Crazy-cool and perfect for the modern home, this bean bag chair for kids is designed and made right here in Australia. It features gorgeous piping details, a large range of colour choices, and it can even be customised with your child’s name on the leather handle.
4. Sack Me
The best thing about denim? It goes with everything. But that’s not the only reason we dig this ultra-modern bean bag – it’s also cleverly shaped to facilitate both sitting and lounging. Don’t be surprised if a few tuckered-out kids doze off in this one.
We’ll never tire of the classic sailor stripe. Available in blue, grey and red, the kid’s bean bag from Mocka is as comfy as it is durable. With a handle strap for kiddos to carry it from room to room, it’s the perfect addition to their chillout space.
Sailors, mermaids and ships, oh my! This mint-green and classically shaped bean bag is just the spot for some serious chillaxing. It comes with a dual-locking zipper and an easy-clean surface for tidying up those snack-time spills.
7. Ashanti Design
Ashanti fabrics are lovingly hand woven in Africa from clothing offcuts that would otherwise wind up in landfill, and no two items are the same. Vibrant, unique and big enough for two kids to curl up on, this is not just a bean bag – it’s the star of the room.
Bean Bag Chairs for Kids
With the comfort of a bean bag, and the shape of an armchair, bean bag chairs are designed to facilitate more upright sitting, and they are perfect for reading nooks and playrooms.
8. Hip Kids
Compact and cosy, this bean bag chair comes in a choice of four timeless colours. The hard-wearing canvas cover is made to withstand years of use, and the leatherette handle makes it a cinch to drag from room to room.
9. Lelby’s Bean Chairs
High on style and comfort, this gem gets our vote for being one of the prettiest bean bag chairs in town. There’s a child-proof zip to keep those beans in place and covers come in a choice of contemporary patterns and colours. We love!
10. Ivory and Deene
Roomy, fluffy and earthy – this bean bag chair is as close as they’ll get to sitting on a cloud. It has an ultra-soft ‘fur’ cover, extra structure to support little bods, and it’s still large enough for kids to lie down on come nap time.
Outdoor Bean Bags
Banana lounges be gone. When it comes to chilling on patios, pool decks and grassy patches, outdoor bean bags are fast becoming the kid’s chair of choice.
This unmissable number is the ultimate chill-pad for little superheroes, and it has all the safety features you’d expect in a quality kids’ bean bag. Built in a large format, and tough enough for outdoor use, this is going to see the kids through years of lounging.
With the extra structure of a chair format and weather-proof materials, this lightweight bean bag is just the thing for whiling away a long summer’s day. We’re especially loving the splash of colour on this one, and the fact that it comes ready-filled with beans.
13. Epona Co.
This classic kids’ bean bag lounger is the perfect place for kids to unwind after a dip in the paddling pool, and it’s particularly fab for littlies who love to stretch those legs out. The waterproof cover is made of heavy-duty materials that will hold up well outdoors and comes in a choice of blue, pink or taupe.
