Beanbag chairs:

I received one in the Christmas of '78. It was a large one, black, and it was plush, not leather (like a huge stuffed animal). I loved it, although I have to admit it was kind of uncomfortable to sit in for very long...

Rhoda's studio apartment. I loved it when Mary went up there :)

I had a bright orange one! Made out of... something shiny. Vinyl maybe. I loved it. Got it about the same time, circa '78.

Did either of you see the episode of "Bosum Buddies", where their boss Ruth Dunbar visits Kip and Henry's apartment, and she goes to sit down in the bean bag chair and falls over backward and couldn't get up??? I laughed hysterically at that.

Mine was bright yellow. And it was "pleather"!

I always wanted one but my mom wouldn't get me one because she thought they were unsightly.

AWE: "Pleather"??? I'm guessing "leather-looking plastic", but it's just a guess.

Sunny: Sometimes parents can be no fun.

Noe: They don't make anything like they used to.

MLS: I think mine started to do that, so that's when it got thrown out. It's just hard to remember after 32 years.

I want a plush benabag chair! Mine was black but made of that plasticy material. I miss that thing!

I kind of forgot that I had one until I read your post. I think that it looked like it was made out of jean type material and eventually there was a small leak in it.
