Sumo is famous for their beanbag chairs, and their new Titan is one of the biggest beanbags I’ve ever seen. It’s more of a beanbag bed than a beanbag chair. The Sumo Titan measures 70″ x 49″ x 36″ and weighs a whopping 50 pounds!
The chair/bed is available in suede or cord, and your choice of 15 different colors. we went with red because it seemed like a good color for a beanbag.
I should point out that while Sumo calls this a beanbag chair, there are no beans in it. While some Sumo chair does use beans, the Titan is filled with 100% polyurethane foam. Using beans would no doubt make the chair so heavy, that you wouldn’t be able to move it!
Using foam for filling does have its advantages. It’s a lot softer and that means Sally can do a flying leap into the chair, and not hurt herself.

The foam also allows me to change the shape of the Titan. By laying it flat, it became of nice bed/coach. Flipping it on its side turns the Titan into a huge body hugging chair with pretty good back support.
The Sumo Titan sells for $429 for the suede ($449 for cord), with free shipping. The quality is top notch. Sally and her friends have been trying to destroy it since I got it. The Titan has withstood hundreds of jumps, and not a single piece of foam have escape. When not being abused by hyperactive kids, the Titan becomes a great spot to chill and relax.
Some might say paying $429 is high for a beanbag chair. However, I paid $1,600 for my Herman Miller office chair, and it’s no where near as fun. Judging by how Sally loves the Sumo, I say the Titan is a bargain.
