I Bought the Moonpod Chair – Here’s a Review

moonpod chair

The Moonpod chair is the latest iteration of the bean bag chair. Their marketing calls it “the reinvented bean bag chair.” Looking at the product on the surface, it definitely looks a lot like a standard beanbag chair and can be used the same way. 

The Moonpod reviews across the board pretty much say the same thing: it’s better than an everyday beanbag chair. It speaks for itself when you hear all of the details about the design and the build and the ingenuity behind the design. 

This chair is not your everyday little chair that wears out, leaks filling, and sinks right to the floor. It’s much better than that. It’s made with high-quality materials and designed to support you in multiple ways. 

First, let’s talk about some basic features of the chair. 

  • Moon Pod weighs approximately 12 pounds. 
  • Moon Pod is 4 square feet in measurement. 
  • The Moon Pod has a zippered lining that can be removed and machine washed. 
  • This chair is multifunctional and delivers comfort and calming in one smooth mechanism. 
  • The Moon Pod is designed to last for a lifetime of use. 

Do you see now where this is a step above your beanbag chair? The price is also a step above the beanbag chair. This is no $100 beanbag you can just pick up from your local Wal-Mart. The Moon Pod will cost you between $300 and $400 and is certainly a pricy investment but it has a lot to offer. 

That may seem like a lot, but ultimately, this chair has a lot to offer. The Moon Pod was designed by the same individual who originally designed the weighted blanket and his intentions were similar to this chair. 

The purpose was to provide a comfortable option that you could recline in, sit in, lounge in, or even take a nap in. It was designed to be calming and relieving both physically and mentally. The truth is, this little chair works well for those purposes, though napping might be difficult based on your size.

Moon Pod Review

The Moon Pod is effective for its intended purpose but it is also built to last. You don’t have to worry about the tiny Styrofoam beads falling out all over the floor. These beads are high-quality material that won’t lose shape.

This chair has a floating effect so when you recline or lay down in it you feel as though the chair simply embraces you. You feel support and relief in your joints and your mind relaxes with the motions and comfort. You can rest or relax comfortably at ease. 

The Moon Pod exterior is machine washable. You unzip and remove the cover, wash it, and put it back on. This keeps your chair looking nice and you don’t have to worry about keeping it clean because it’s pretty simple. 

Your Moon Pod will be a decent size for the enjoyment of lounging on without being overly bulky or hard to stow or move. It’s lightweight and only about 4 square feet in size so you can probably store it in a large closet if you want to, and you definitely won’t need help moving it around. 

You really can’t go wrong with the Moon Pod if you’re willing and able to make the financial investment. Be sure to take good care of it when you get it because Moon Pod only offers a 1-year warranty for manufacturer defects, despite the claims that the materials should last a lifetime. 


Overall, I think the Moon Pod is a quality furniture piece. I can’t really call it a chair because it is so much more than that. If you suffer from sleeplessness, high-stress, or even joint pain, I think you will be amazed at how this chair hugs you. 

If you’re on the fence about the Moon Pod chair, I say go for it if it’s something that interests you. Treat yourself and enjoy the comfort the chair has to offer. You don’t have to just use it for naps, you can lounge in or sit in it like a recliner and it’s comfortable every single time.
