What Is The Right Size For Me?
Our bean bag chairs come in an Adult size (Boss Original) and a Child size (Boss Jnr). The Adult size dimensions are 39 inch high back and 35 inch wide base. The Child size dimensions are 34 inch high back and 30 inch wide base (we have photos on the product pages of the different sizes).
As a rule of thumb, we generally recommend the child size for up to 4'3" tall and the adult size for anyone taller than that. Of course, people come in all sizes and shapes. If you're not sure, we'd recommend the Adult size as you can always grow into it.
Is There A Weight Limit?
These gaming bean bags are double stitched for strength and also lab tested for durability. Unfortunately the lab doesn't give us a recommended maximum capacity as there are variables that come into play, but as I guide, we'd recommend up to 260 pounds under normal use of the bean bag (so that's just sitting in it).
If you're jumping into it like a water bomber into the pool, it's not really made for that and it would void the warranty, but they are really strong and durable.
Where Can I Get The Beans?
Firstly, we recommend using only EPS beans (those little white ones about the size of a pea) as they allow the bean bag to hold it's shape and provide a comfortable and supportive experience.
While memory foam is popular, it only works for those large round floppy bean bags. You can buy bean bag beans (EPS beans) from most "big box" retailers, in store or online, such as Amazon or Walmart. Simply search "bean bag filling" on any of those online stores. You'll need 200 litres of beans for the child size and 350 Litres for the adult size.
*NOTE: We don't recommend using the 500g Spotlight bags of beans as they are not the same as a 100 Litre bag from Target, KMart or Big W, and it ends up costing more to fill the bean bag. Don't forget to check out our bean bag filling instructional video HERE.
How many beans do I need?
The child size (Boss Jnr) requires 200 Litres, the adult size (Boss Original) requires 350 Litres and the footstool requires 60 Litres of EPS bean bag filling. If you prefer a firm sitting position, put in an extra 50 Litres of beans. Over the first few months the beans will settle and compress slightly, so we recommend getting some extra.Don't forget, we recommend to use only EPS type beans (the white bean bag beans) not memory foam.
