High/Low Fruit Bean Bags

Inevitably kids spend a lot of time on the floor so beanbags offer a comfortable place to hunker down. We really like these fruit and vegetable beanbags from EZ Bean, but balked a bit at the price of $240. We did a little searching around and found this cheaper alternative at Montgomery Ward (who knew they were still around?).

The selection is smaller - apple, pear or banana - but the price is right at $80. Find them here.

EZ Bean, on the other hand, offers a 15 different styles for a more sophisticated palate including persimmon, eggplant, and peach. They are available in either brushed cotton or tech suede.

If you're a DIY type, check out this tutorial for making a beanbag based on the ubiquitous tomato pincushion (via Love Forever).
