If you have kids, you almost can’t live without a bunch of these floor pillows. Ever seen a bunch of teens spread out on the floor for a video game fest late on a Friday night, or how about all those family members who come over for a holiday? Unless you have an expandable sofa, people are always shuffling chairs and looking for a comfy place to park.
Soothing Floor Pillows
If you’ve ever used the older style of bean bag chair, or sat on a floor pillow that wasn’t the right size, you may have felt your neck muscles become sore due to a lack of support, and the fact that your muscles are working overtime to keep you in position: That is not comfortable.
When selecting large floor pillows that may receive regular use, consider how the pillows will be used. If they’re for use with small children who just need a place to sit; a flat, square pillow cushion works perfectly. If, however, the floor pillow will be meant for lounging, laying on the floor, or it needs to support ones back and neck; make sure that it is of sufficient size (child or adult) and has more of a bean bag filling, so that it conforms to the user’s body position and gives extra support.
Fatboy Island pillows are HUGE – 47″ in diameter, to be exact. That’s why they’re called the Island!
These are sturdy, comfortable floor pillows that can stand up to kids, pets, hardwood floors, and anything else you throw at them, and they come in the coolest colours, too. As loungers for a kids’ playroom or bedroom, you can’t do better than their own large Island.
Large Floor Pillows
I’ll admit that at my age, I have many reasons to get down on the floor: Don’t take that the wrong way – I have kids! Board games, video games, even doing puzzles together, often requires that we sit or lounge on the floor to play at a level in which a small child can reach the pieces. My five year old seems to be able to lay on his stomach on the floor for hours: Not me; After five minutes, my back hurts, my arms are sore from holding me up, and I end up spending a lot of time searching for a comfortable position.
Large floor pillows solve that issue. I can sit on them comfortably and not bruise a tail bone. or lay across them so my stiff, old bones (okay, I’m not really THAT old) aren’t pressed to the hard floor. Carpet alone just doesn’t seem to cut it.
We have a family room with a corner sectional: Tucked back behind the sectional where the corner piece is away from the wall, we’ve stored a pile of large floor cushions that can be pulled out for family game night, or the kids’ sleepovers: Best investment we ever made.
