I wanted to make a corner of the family room a nice floor space for my young children to bounce around & also get comfortable while playing. These pillows are fantastic. The kids jump all over them & bounce off of them & they are still nice & cushiony. They are very comfortable for the adults to lounge around on as well & I sometimes prefer to lounge on the floor pillows versus the couch, My husband asked me to get a few more. They are big & the material looks like a corduroy, so these are casual looking pillows-keep that in mind. These are not pillows that can do double duty as a couch pillow. Another small plus is that they have a handle on one edge to move them around. Without that it would be difficult to pick up in two hands and carry to another room, so that was smart thinking!
