Every kid (and adult) needs a cozy place to unwind during or after a long day. Whether you’re a teacher designing a reading nook or adding flexible seating to your classroom or a parent creating a comfortable place to relax in your child’s bedroom, beanbag chairs are the perfect thing to include. Have kids who love dogs, sharks, or dinos? There’s a beanbag chair for them! You’ll find various sizes, styles, fabrics, and designs, and we love features like washable covers and waterproof materials that make them outdoor rated. There are even options that are big enough for adults or several children who want to share a good book or work with a partner. Some beanbag chairs for kids can even be personalized with a name or a special phrase.

1. Comfy Dino

Bean bag chairs for kids include this green option that has a dinosaur face and horns.

Since a lot of kids love dinosaurs, this chair will be a hit. Equally comfortable and whimsical, this chair is best suited to the toddler-to-10-year-old crowd.

Real User Review: “Love! Kiddos’ favorite chair! They’ve been jumping on it and so far so good, and I even sat and found it very comfortable.”

2. Ladybug Love

A bean bag chair is designed to look like a lady bug.

If dinosaurs aren’t your thing, you might like this cute ladybug chair instead. This sweet and comfy chair will remind kids of the delightful Eric Carle book The Grouchy Ladybug! They can grab that, or any other book, and get reading while being cozy at the same time!


Real User Review: “This ladybug beanbag is perfect for my granddaughter as well as Grandma! She squealed with delight when she saw it. It’s lightweight but sturdy.”

3. Spidey and Friends

A bean bag chair in different shades of blue has the kids' superheroes Spidey and Friends on it.

This is the perfect-size chair for the toddler-through-5-year-old crowd, so we think it would work well in a daycare or preschool setting (or at home, of course!). Kids that age love superheroes, and the amazing Spidey and his web-slinging friends are certainly some of the best!

Real User Review: “Perfect chair for your little one. It is soft and comfortable. It is made very well and at a great price. I am extremely happy with this product.”

4. Stuffed Animal Storage

A gray triangular shaped bean bag chair with a zipper is shown with a little girl on it.

Every parent knows the feeling of having one (or 100) too many stuffed animals, so why not purchase one of these beanbag chair covers? This large cover is soft and will hold all of your child’s favorite buddies while also providing them with a comfy place to land! Buyer beware if you have a dog, because they will definitely want to get cozy here too!

Real User Review: “This was so much bigger than I thought. One of these was perfect for all of my daughter’s stuffies and it makes our playroom much less cluttered. A must!”

5. Seeing Stars

A little girl is shown resting on this example of bean bag chairs for kids. The chair is white with large black stars on it.

Beanbag chairs for kids make great reading spots, but they can get dirty quick! While this beanbag chair is both stylish and comfy, the best part is that the cover is machine washable!

Real Teacher Review: “I absolutely love that you can take the cover off and wash it! This is the best thing since I use it in the classroom and kids are constantly on it.”

6. Soccer Chair

7. Anywhere Beanbag

Bean bag chairs for kids include this cream colored sherpa one. The name Ashton is sewn into the front and a stuffed dog sits on it.
Pottery Barn Kids

While this chair is pricier than others, it comes with a Greenguard Gold Certified label that assures you that chemical emissions are kept to a minimum. We especially love that it can be personalized with your little one’s name or another phrase perfect for a classroom like “Reader” or “Book Critic.”

8. Ultimate Dorm Chair

Bean bag chairs for kids include this neon green option that has a back, a seat, and two arm rests. There are two pockets to hold a book and a waterbottle.

This large beanbag chair has more structure than some others on our list, and the fabric is waterproof and stain resistant. It also features a good-size pocket to hold books or other supplies and a separate smaller pocket just right for a water bottle. Some beanbag chairs for kids need to be able to support adult-sized kids and this one fits the bill!

Real Teacher Review: “I have this chair in my high school classroom. It’s used by some of our larger football players and they fit OK.”

9. Oversized Fun

Equally spacious and soft, this huge beanbag chair cover will hold even the largest adults or a couple of small kids. You’ll need to fill it since the listing is for the cover only. You can use stuffed animals and blankets, or you could also buy filler like this to put inside.

Real User Review: “Very comfortable and the kids love it. It takes a ton of filler or stuffed animals/blankets to get it filled.”

10. Microsuede Beanbag Chair

A teenage girl is seen lounging on a burgundy microsuede bean bag chair.

Users love both the filling used as well as the microsuede material of these comfy beanbag chairs for kids.

Real User Review: “The chairs arrive with the air sucked out and ready to be rocked and rolled all over the house to break up the foam chunks. I absolutely LOVE that they filled it with memory foam chunks rather than the traditional ‘bean’ filling. If they ever end up busting, I won’t need to worry about that crazy Styrofoam mess!”

11. Massaging Chair

A large structured brown chair has a handle on the top.

The Cadillac of beanbag chairs, this one has a built-in massager! We love the faux leather appearance of this beanbag chair since it won’t look out of place in an older child’s room or even a living room. We also love the handle on the top for easy transport.

Real User Review: “The product looks exactly as in the picture. Really roomy, so comfortable for an adult too. My daughter, who is 10, loves sitting in it to read. The material looks like it will last quite a while.”

12. Lounger

A woman is seen sitting on a striped chair.

This is a pricier beanbag chair for kids, but the quality warrants paying a little more. While it can be used flat as a lounger, it can also be used as a chair. Your weight will be enough to keep the back in place! With so many different colors and shades available, everyone can find one they will love.

Real Teacher Review: “I use this in my office at school for both students and adults to sit in. Very sturdy and comfortable.”

13. Matching Foot Rest

What sets this oh-so comfortable beanbag chair apart from the rest is the matching foot stool! Regardless of your favorite color, we think you should be able to find one you like since there are 25 different choices.

Real Teacher Review: “My students love it. It’s comfortable and very soft.”

18. A Beanbag Sofa

A large sofa is made from cream colored fur. It is low to the ground and the cushion is a beanbag.

A beanbag chair that also doubles as a sofa? Yes, indeedy.

Real User Review: “Bought this for daughter’s dorm room. Everyone loves hanging out in her room and sitting on the couch. It’s super cute and so comfortable. It’s so easy to fold out into a bed for friends staying over.”

19. Zero Gravity

A woman is seen lounging on a large sack. Five color options are shown below.

Filled with high-friction microbeads, this chair will simulate flotation therapy while calming your anxiety and alleviating aches and pains. While we think you should purchase one for your home or classroom, you should be prepared for people fighting over it! It’s best for older kids.

Real User Review: “I bought this chair because I needed my dog to stay off the couch after her knee surgery, so that meant I had to stay off the couch as well. I find the chair comfortable, and it is easy to form it into different positions and recline levels. It is very lightweight, so it is very easy to move around or put away.”

20. Baby Shark, Do-doo, Doo-doo, Doo-doo

Aside from the obviously very cool design of this shark-head beanbag chair, we also love the washable and durable nylon cover. This chair is the perfect size for toddlers through preschoolers.

Real User Review: “My daughter loves her beanbag! She puts her stuffed animals in it and naps or watches TV. It has been a super-useful tool to keep her room tidy. I’d say this is a must-have for toddlers!”
