Review: Bag2Bed - the comfiest bean bag there is?

About a month ago, at the Better Homes and Gardens show in Melbourne, we impulsively splashed out on not one, but three, bean bags.  And not just any - three super large ones from Bag2Bed. As our daughter noted, we now have six bean bags, with three being small children sized ones and three large ones, for a family of four.

At the show, we took two conventional large outdoor beanbags immediately and placed an order for the third - the Queen Size Bag2Bed. Within two weeks we received a call and made arrangements to collect the bag from their factory, which is conveniently close to us in Cheltenham, Melbourne.

The Bag2Bed concept is that instead of a bean bag filled with polystyrene balls, the Bag2Bed is filled with a foam mattress rolled into a ball.  The bean bag cover can be easily slipped off, and the filling unfurls into a mattress.  In our case it is a queen size mattress.

It is easily the most comfortable bean bag we've used, with a firm foam filling.  We 'fight' for the right to sit in the bag.  Its foam filling means it keeps its shape and it is supportive.  We often have two people in it and one person can get up without the other then sliding into a hole or off the bag.

The foam filling also means that it is heavy.  I can move it and roll it to put it in its cover on my own, whereas my wife has much more difficulty with that.

The bags are also large. The Bag2Bed website helpfully has the measurements of the bags in their bean bag and mattress configurations.  We strongly recommend checking the measurements to ensure they fit in your room.

The Bag2Bed is available in five fashion colours.

The bags are a fantastic bean bag and a great bed for visitors - definitely much more comfortable than any sofa-bed we've slept on. A Bag2Bed can be ordered from their website, with the RRP of the queen size bed being $699 plus delivery.

  1. Thanks for sharing useful post. You shared very good information about bean bag chairs. Sometime later I also bought a polystyrene bean bag chair from an online store. It was a very comfortable chair and it works fine till now. When I sit on that chair for relaxing I feel like heaven on it.
