Default Bean Bag Chair

Does anybody have a suggestion on an inexpensive bean bag or bean bag chair? My boyfriend's daughter wanted one when we were at Target, but they seemed to be very cheaply made. I would like a bean bag or bean bag chair or one of those floor rocker chair things. I say I am looking for an inexpensive one, but I want one that lasts and is fairly comfortable. She is almost 10, by the way, but I might sit on it sometimes, too. Thoughts....Ideas...?

We have a Cord-a-Roy bean bag bed that we love! They are NOT cheap, but they change into a bed, which mitigates some of the cost IMO. It's very comfy as a chair and not bad as a guest bed at all. They are local to me, but I'm pretty sure you can order online. http://www.cordaroys.com/

That does look nice. It would be great when she has friends over to spend the night, too. I think her grandma has just a regular bean bag like that, but it does not change into a bed. I might look into getting one of those. (I haven't looked at the price yet.)

I have a Lovesac. It's VERY well made, and very comfortable.

Love those! So comfy. Pretty expensive if I remember right, though.

The only drawback is that when we bought ours, they made us "assemble" them ourselves (not sure if they still do that). Basically, they gave you a compressed block of foam and other squishy materials, and you had to rip it apart to make it fluffy. That took forever, and it hurt my hands after a while.
But it was worth it.

I'm pretty sure Pottery Barn Teen has some neat bean bags and floor rockers... it's probably not cheap but that stuff is made pretty well.

Thanks for all of the suggestions. I figured I would end up spending more money that I wanted, but I would rather spend more and get something that is comfortable and lasts for a longer.

We got a beanbag from The Company Store that is super cute but total crap. It's smooshed down to nothing and we've only had it a few months...and no one is ever on it except my toddler daughter and 14 pound dog. The cover is adorable (and WASHABLE) but the insides are a disappointment.

My point being, don't buy one from The Company Store.
