Bean Bag Bonanza

Since its introduction in 1968, the bean bag has come a long way. Nowadays you can order bean bags in all manner of shapes, sizes, colors, materials, and so on. And that's just the outside. Bean bag insides can be filled with beans, beads, shredded memory foam, plastic pellets, and more. The options are enough to start your head spinning and prompt add-to-cart paralysis. That's where this guide comes in. Whether you're looking for a bean bag for a teen's room, one on which you can snooze the day away, or something that doesn’t cost a fortune (and more), this list is full of well-rated bean bags that are worth consideration.

With more than 12,000 reviews, a huge array of color choices, and a 5-foot diameter that gives buyers plenty of space for lounging, this microsuede, memory foam-filled bean bag earns our highest recommendation. Buyers call it a "godly piece of furniture" and an item you should be "prepared to fight for ... because everyone wants to sit in it." One caveat: It does weigh 55 pounds, so it's not exactly suitable for dragging around the house.

At 4 pounds, it's also light enough to be dragged from room to room. Note that some buyers say it can feel a bit more supportive if you add extra filler.
