"Extra" Seating

Looking for recommendations for "extra" seating for our theater room when we have company with kids over. We have 4 recliners in there, and I don't really want to add any permanent seating, just something that we can move in and out as needed. Are there any bean bag chairs that would be fairly comfortable for kids? Thanks.

I picked up a couple of Ikea Poang Armchairs with the matching ottomans. They are very reasonably priced, have lots of color options, pretty narrow and very comfortable. Allows us to go from a 7 seat theater to a 9 seat theater when we need the extra space.

Old thread which was ravaged by photobucket dropping out, but there are still some pictures to get the idea.

I have a couple of these for kids to use. Ottomans which fold into mini recliners. These pop up from time to time in multiple stores under different brands.

My brother and his wife bought us a couple of giant bean bag chairs last Christmas for our theater. Don't think it was the actual Big Joe brand, but similar in size and concept. We have them against the wall on either side most of the time. The kids love sitting in them, and my wife and I will occasionally drag them in the middle in front of the main seating row to use.

We also have a bunch of young grand kids and the giant bean bags were the best investment ever. They just love them. Good ones are around $70. But their made very good. You cant hurt them. Whats amazing is the box they ship in. You would never know that they can get those in their. When you open them they will get bigger and bigger ect. Have to see to believe.

Thank you so much!! Do you find the bean bags noisy? I sat in one at Target and it squeaked a LOT and I thought that would be distracting. I ended up ordering 2 of these https://www.walmart.com/ip/Your-Zone...olors/14931613 in black. I would like to grab a bean bag or two down the road if I can find ones that don't squeak so much.

I had 6 of these in black I got from amazon. https://www.sears.com/ace-bayou-vide...-SPM7925903229 They seem to be hard to find now though. They were perfect for kids and smaller sized teen girls.
