I once bought my son a bean bag chair. ONCE. He and his friends jumped off the top bunk bed onto it and it exploded. I knew something was wrong when I heard the massive boom on the upstairs floor. It was like the voices of millions of parents cried out in terror. It took FOREVER to get those damned electrostatically-charged foam beans off of everything. They cling to surfaces worse than the stickiest of boogers. So I have mixed feelings about this Death Star bean bag.
I know it won’t blow up Alderaan, but give a kid enough alone time with it, and a bunk bed and it will explode like that time Luke took aim on that exhaust port. It’s cool mind you, looking all squishy and cute and Death Star-y. Plus, its cover is machine washable so you can get all those Doritos fingerprints off of it.
The beanbag measures 31-inches in diameter, and can be yours for $149 from Pottery Barn Kids. If you already have an appropriately-sized beanbag, you can buy just the slip cover for $79. Don’t say I didn’t warn you when you are on all fours with a shop vac trying to get foam beans off the cat.
