I had bean bag chairs filled with real beans when I was growing up, but those aren't easy to find these days. I think the foam bean bags sold now are actually a little better in some ways. The real beans would often get crushed and turn to powder over time, and they were nearly as comfortable as modern foam bean bag chairs.

I actually found a furniture store that sold a memory foam bean bag chair, but it was fairly expensive. I was looking for leather bean bag chairs for adults, not cheap bean bag chairs for kids. I wanted to put a few in my game room for guests who wanted to play video games or watch a movie in comfort.

Personally, I think bean bag chairs are overrated. They aren't as comfortable or supportive as people like to think, in my opinion. However, I did decide to buy my kids some bean bag chairs for their new playroom and this article was very useful. I made sure the foam bean bag chairs had enough beads to make them fairly firm. I didn't want my kids to develop bad posture while sitting in cheap bean bag chairs.
