When I first heard about the Moon Pod, an improvement on the classic beanbag chair that’s zero gravity and claims to reduce stress, I was skeptical. As a child of the ‘80s, I was pretty much splayed out on beanbag chairs from the time I was little straight through college, and the idea of willingly bringing one of those saggy, drooping chairs back into my home was, well, cringe-inducing.
But then I discovered that the Moon Pod is the latest brainchild of John Fiorentino, the creator of the Gravity Blanket, which is one of my all-time favorite products — like, ever. I’ve been using the Gravity Blanket for more than three years now, and to say it’s changed my life would be an understatement. Whereas I used to have perpetually erratic sleep and high anxiety, I’m now falling asleep easily and quickly, catching a minimum of eight, deep hours of REM sleep nightly. Point being: Given Fiorentino’s proven success with Gravity Blanket, I was more than willing (and ready!) to give his latest stress-reducing tool a spin.

Enter: Moon Pod into my home. At first sight, I was happy to see that aesthetically, this iteration of the beanbag is a major upgrade to the one of yore. Taut and bean-shaped, the chair is encased in a soft, stretchy outer shell that’s sleek and modern-looking (and machine-washable!). While I’m not going to put it in my formal living room, it’s certainly an option for more casual spaces in your home, like family rooms, playrooms or kids’ bedrooms.
Available in five colors (navy, charcoal, light gray, light pink and light blue), Moon Pods’ size is actually pretty great too. Weighing in just under 12 pounds and taking up 4 square feet of space — specific measurements are 50 inches by 20 inches by 20 inches, give or take a few inches in every direction due to its amorphous shape — the beanbag is super portable. I’ve had my gray version parked in my sons’ room for the past few weeks, but my cousin who also bought one recently for her baby’s nursery admitted that she and her husband are always moving it around the house to wherever baby is playing on the floor, adding that they prefer the cozy, low-to-the-ground chair option chock-full of support over the hardwood floor that’s brutal on their backs. Pro tip: She also uses the Moon Pod as an impromptu baby gate at the bottom of the stairs!
If you want to give up a bit of portability for the ability to cozy up with someone else, opt for the Super Moon Pod, which is double the size of the original.
