Encyclopedia > Beanbag

A bean bag is a bag containing dried beans or PVC pellets, with various applications.


This should not be confused with the musical genre beanbag, which is a downtempo and satirical derivative of plunderphonica, nor should either be confused with the Christian rock group 'Beanbag'.

Games

Hackysack (also foot bag) is a type of ball-shaped bean bag that is used to play various games.


Freestyle hackysack involves performing tricks while keeping the bean bag airborne for an extended period of time.


Circle kick (also hacking circle) requires several players to test their skills against one another and attempt to get a hack, where each one of the players hits the hackysack at least once in a sequence before the hack hits the ground.


In Killer the players start off with a circle kick and try to hit the other players with the hackysack. Often there is a set number of times the hackysack must be kicked before it can be kicked at another person. If the other person is hit with it, he is out, but if he kicks it back, he remains in the game.


In Numbers, the players start off with a circle kick, and each consecutive holder of the hackysack must kick it a certain number of times. The number increases on every success.


Furniture

Bean bag chairs are a popular form of furniture made of fabric and filled with small chunks of styrofoam or PVC pellets.


Toys

Beans bags, often simply small bags literally filled with dried beans are used in a number of children's games involving throwing and catching or throwing at targets.


The infamous Beanie Babies are in fact bean bags.
