Been lookin online and man these things are mad expensive. It is a gift for a friend of mine. Bigger the better. Trying to keep it at a max of $60. Absolutely $75 at the most. It is for an adult not a kid so. Can't be a mega small one.


This is looking to be harder than I originally thought.

Not a bean bag chair, but can be had on Craiglist for pretty cheap.

Then what the **** are you doing in this thread? You suck at the internet.

Now for the people with common sense and a little bit of a brain. I am looking for the thing I mentioned in the title.

DIY.

This is what I plan on doing soon. You can do it for about that price. Maybe even cheaper if you can find a local foam manufacturer around you...

This company has a few state team bean bags, I'm surprised they sell for so much.

Very interested in this. Link isn't working though. If ya could try again it would be appriciated.

KrazyD. Those are mega expensive. No way I am dropping that much.

Coolbam. I don't really like ebay. Only as a last resort. Rather do just a regular internet store or something.

Itzbjorn. Tried google. Everything was comming up like 100 or more. I was shocked at how expensive these things are.

Pork. Thanks for the link. Not really looking for a sports one though. Just solid.

Weird. It was just working yesterday when I sent that link. Oh well. I guess keep checking it. The main thing of it all is just to say about what to stuff it with. Different shapes and sizes you can make. If you are good with math and a little creative you can make your own design and stuff it. The last part was how to stuff it. Here is the website for stuffing which is the cheapest I have seen besides local dealers ( and I have no dealers in my state). The shredded regular foam is the way to go. I was going to make mine about 2.5x2.5x6 or so. I would need about 2 large bags of the shredded regular foam. Any questions, ask me. I will try to help.

How old is this "adult"?

I can't speak for everyone, but I know that while I LOVED bean bag chairs as a teenager, after about the age of 30, Mr. Bean Bag was, just like Mr. Hand Grenade once the pin was pulled, no longer my friend.

Same thing with video game chairs and really soft couches. Tough to get up out of.

My suggestion? Go with the papasan chair. It'll be useful longer.

She is in her 20s. And she already has one of those chairs. And she said she loves bean bag chairs. And has always wanted one.

Seemed like enough for me. But I can't seem to find one for cheap enough so it looks like it isn't going to happen anyway.

Saw a bunch of bean bags at walmart for under $20 today. Perhaps buy one and make a nice microsuade throw to cover it in and give them that, or take two and sew them together and then make a cover and it will be decent sized? just some ideas.

Hrm never thought about taking a couple and sewing them together. Now that is an idea. I could get like 3 of them and make one big one.

Good idea dude. Thanks.
