Okay..weird question...
Anyone been to the Apple store, and noticed the chairs around their computer table?? I think they're for kids...
Anyway, these are amazing. I think they're filled with some sort of foam or something, sort of like those squishy pillows, only firmer...
Does anyone know what this material is?!
If not, does anyone know where I could buy such a chair?!
I've googled, and found nothing. -_-

Don't you love my vague sense of writing?!
Sorry if this is the wrong board...I just didn't know where else to post.
Move if necessary!

TIA! -Ashley

kind of, but when you stand up, it goes back to normal, instead of staying in the form of your-well-butt.

Where would I buy something like that? Would they sell it somewhere, or would I have to buy it from a company?

I wonder if it would work if you coiled one of those thinner memory foam mattress cut in your desired thickness and height with a super tight fitting cover over it. I wonder if it would get wonky or flat if you try and sit on it. They sell some at wal-mart for cheap, the twin and the full size are cheap. Kohl's also has some but they are more expensive as well as sam's club. You might get lucky checking out at a thrift shop or by driving around on big trash day to see if you can score one. 

Or Go to the Apple store and see if you can unzip the cover on it to see what is inside it. I'm sure they won't mind. Bring a paper clip, you might need it to unzip the chair, if it is possible.
Maybe if you speak with the store manager, they can get you some contact information or some direction on who to contact for the supplier/maker for those chairs.

You came in from the darkness and held the door open wide
You stood there like a vision before my unbelieving eyes
I believe in what I see and also what I hear
But did the night play tricks on me or were you really there.

Just been searching around. Apple.com calls them beanbag chairs. so maybe this is a super jam packed stuffed beanbag chair???
