We are of the belief that nobody, child or otherwise, can resist a good beanbag chair.

There's something so satisfying about plonking yourself down onto a big, squashy cocoon of comfort, whether it be for story time or simply to relax after hours spent running around in the garden. They're super versatile, offering comfort and support in both indoor and outdoor settings, and with all the fun colours and patterns on offer these days, a good kids' bean bag chair is sure to brighten up any child's bedroom or playroom.

When choosing the best one for your family, there are several factors to consider. Size is one: some kids' bean bags won't be suitable for teenagers, for example. The kind of beans they are filled with is also important, as this can make a difference to the comfort and level of support that the chair offers. It's also useful to check whether the outer fabric is machine washable, a useful feature if you have young children who are prone to making mess, or if you're going to be using it in the garden.

Whatever you're looking for, we've gathered together a selection of the best kids' bean bags chairs on the market, so you can pick one that your child is sure to love. Take a look at our favourites below!
