Are beanbags cool?
This is an age-old question that has plagued the PureVolume crew since we were (collectively) about 4 years old. To recap, up until now the beanbag chairs we’ve grown up with were small, shoddy, blob-shaped and generally wouldn’t make it through more than one beanbag war in any given playroom/basement.
We have a Sumo (sumolounge.com) sitting in front of us and there are obvious differences compared to the traditional beanbag chairs. The Sumo is in the shape of a giant pillow (about 4’x5′) and you can pretty much mold it into any sitting/lounging/laying down creation you can think of. This helps in any beanbag fight because you can practically wrap your opponent in his own Sumo and smother him into submission. While we can all agree that a small indoor war involving beanbags is more fun than a county fair, we still need to test its practicality in slightly more normal situations. involving the opposite sex.
Do you have a dorm room? If you answered yes, then you NEED a Sumo. College is one of the most accepting places on Earth and what could be better than a giant “laying down next to one another” support system? Plop this thing in your dorm room and you even have the opportunity to create buzz as to how you discovered it. This will assuredly make you cool, as people who have cool stories attached to their belongings generally are. If you are already cool, this will only make you cooler.
If you’re a video gamer and spend countless hours trying to find Zelda and beat the ever-present Ganon, then the Sumo is the answer to all your stiff neck, poor posture related questions.
