With 5 people in the house finding room for everyone to sit when we watch a family movie is not easy. Often I find myself on the sofa with two children in some of the most uncomfortable positions. Usually I would love to lay down while watching a movie. A couple years ago I purchased three bean bag chairs for the children thinking that may solve our problem. However soon after being purchased they became flat as a pancake.
I had never heard of the SUMO Lounge Omni Chair before Countdown to Black Friday but it appeared to be something that might be able to help me with this problem, so when SUMO Lounge contacted LeeAnn about inclusion in the guide we were definitely excited.
I didn’t get very creative or fun when I picked out our chair and went with black. My thought was if I wanted to eventually give it to one of the boys to store in their room black fits right in. When the box arrived Honey was in awe at the size. To give you an idea this is my 6′ 1″ husband on the chair with Honey going over some school work.
The Omni chair has really come in handy when we watch TV as a family. One of those nights is Wednesday night when we all watch Survivor together. At least one of the children can be found comfortable a top the bean bag. Honey has fallen a sleep a number of times on it. I do find the chair to be a little noisy at times, so usually the kids throw a blanket over it before they sit down. This reduces the noise when they move around. Let’s face it kids don’t often sit still.

I have noticed that compared to when we first received our Omni chair it is a little loose and doesn’t keep its form like it did the first day. This is to be expected out of any bean bag chair. Thankfully due to its size it still has more then enough firmness to continue to be useful. I would love to have one chair for each child, my only problem is figuring out where to store it! Right now we keep it out in the living room in front of the fireplace but I often find it laying flat right in the middle of the floor.
Of course with a little adult supervision bean bag chairs can be rather fun. Don’t try this at home, in fact if you don’t mind don’t mention to my husband I even allowed such a thing to happen. We are often reminding the children that the bean bag is not a toy but a place to sit. For the purpose of my review however I let Honey have a little fun. After all she was such a good model for me!
The Omni Chair retails for $149 and free shipping purchased from SUMO Lounge. I just noticed that they are coming out with an Omni Jr. for the smaller members of your family. You can see there is quite a few colors to choose from when selecting the perfect Omni for yourself black, charcoal, platnium, blue, red, orange, pink, white, green, and brown. If the Omni Chair is not quite your style check out some of the other products sold by Sumo Lounge like the Sumo Gamer, Sumo Sultan, and Sumo Gigantor. I’m sure you will find the perfect Sumo Lounge for you and your family. Overall I really love my Omni Chair, though I can’t say I’ve gotten a chance to use it too much myself. I really love how versatile it is, how it can go from a standard bean bag chair to a large square perfect for a little nap!
