Rated 4 out of 5 by SullivanH Big mess if they split
I have been very pleased with our bean bag chairs until the insert in one split open. My kids jump on them, but nothing unusual in terms of treatment. Lands End was very nice about replacing it, but the problem came when we opened the bag. The smallest pieces of polyester fell out. It was as if they had taken normal bean bag beans and put them through a food processor. They are tiny flakes and they go everywhere and coat hands and clothing,skin and hair, not to mention the cover itself. After we got the busted insert out we took the cover outside and spent about 45 minutes vacuuming it off so that we could put the new insert in. It was an endless process. A bigger mess I have never seen! I thought these bags were very nice until I saw what was inside. I'm living in fear that another will bust. The covers are great, but the material used to fill them is awful.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Momof3AML I bought the cover
I bought the cover and then cheap refill beads from a big box store. Then I stitched the zipper of the outer cover shut so the kids couldn't just unzip it and spill the beans out. I will just cut the stitches when it needs refilled again. It is very good quality, and awesome looking with my daughter's name on it. I just bought 2 more covers for my other daughters and will save them for Christmas.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Levi10 Great bean bag chair!
I bought this for my grandson for Christmas and he loves it! The material is durable and the color choices were great. I would recommend this.

Rated 4 out of 5 by sd1 So far, so good!
We just gave 2 of these regular bean bags to our kids for Christmas. The covers seem well-made and durable. Note: the denim color is actually denim material. The inserts worked fine getting them into the cover, but one seems fuller than the other and I'm not sure why that is... Otherwise, both have held up so far and they're comfy, portable seating for our kids!

Rated 5 out of 5 by BillChester Exactly as described.
I purchased it for my granddaughter who is enjoying her own "bag." Her two siblings and four cousins have similar Lands End bags so I knew that this latest beanbag would be appreciated as the others are.

Rated 5 out of 5 by MomWithFiveKids Comfortable and durable
We bought two junior bean bag covers in blue and pink along with the inserts years ago. The covers have held up fine, but after 8 years one insert sprang a leak, in a couple places and tiny beans were constantly coming out. (As a note, my kids did jump on the bean bags sometimes, though they aren't overly rough with things in general).
Recently I ordered a replacement insert for the junior cover and a regular insert with a green cover. The regular cover appears to be as nice as the junior covers we have. The regular insert is very bulky and fills the bag entirely, so that when you sit on the bag it is almost a chair rather than a bean bag. There is not a lot of room for squishing it down or shaping it, but my kids LOVE it that way and think it is the best thing ever. It is also nice for me as an adult because I can sit in it to read to the kids and it doesn't feel like I am on the floor. But if you prefer a more squishy bag with the tiny beans (as the old inserts had) then you might not be happy with these newer ones. I think it is a matter of personal preference. The replacement junior insert, by the way, appears to have the bigger type of beans inside as well, but it did not fill the old junior cover entirely, and therefore it is more shapeable, like the previous inserts were.

Rated 1 out of 5 by SharonElise styrofoam?????
I am amazed at the poor quality insert I received today. This is my third bean bag purchase from Land's End and this one is laughable. The old inserts didn't last a long time but they were at least comfortable. This new one is like really cheap and squeeky styrofoam pieces in a stiff paper cover. The covers are on backorder so need to cancel that and return these. I am so disppointed that they would send me something like this.

Rated 3 out of 5 by Spincerely Need Help!
We've had these bean bag chairs for a few years and they are fine - cover very durable. Now they need some refill beans and I bought a couple of bags of refills and I just want to open the zipper of the insert and fill them, but the zipper won't open. We have two and the zipper won't budge on either one. Is there a trick to get it to unlock? It looks like you just need to insert a paperclip or bobby pin and pull, but the zippers will not move. Need help!!!!

Rated 2 out of 5 by Tracelp Difficulty with inserts
We were sent two of these as gifts. The covers are fine, but the inserts were strange. Rectangular shaped, not shaped anything like the seat covers. And both inserts were different sizes, due to there being significantly more fill in one than the other. So one chair was fairly squashy and comfortable, the other not so much. Twice now we have removed some of the styrofoam fill from the larger bag, and this creates a huge mess, let me tell you. The larger chair could still have some of the fill removed, but I'm dreading the task, because those little beads stick to everything, and roll all over the place. The kids like them to sit on though.
