Bean bags were such a different twist on seating, and Mom and Dad generally would never touch them, since their aged limbs couldn't tweak their way down into one -- so they were all ours. They were modern and fun and crazy, and inevitably, we would poke a hole in ours and the damn beans would spill out EVERYWHERE.
Plaid Stallions found this incredibly awesome catalog page of branded bean bags -- Fonzie, NFL teams, even "Convoy."
Today, some people sit on those big plastic bouncy balls at their office, which always looks weird to me. But really, give me a bean bag any old day.
