It’s huge
Rachael | May 3rd, 2024
I had no idea how much filling 36lbs was. It’s huge. The company compresses it and then plastic wraps it inside two plastic bags. When you open it, it uncompresses and this bag is gigantic. I bought it to stuff an ottoman and I think it’s enough to stuff a totally empty and enormous bean bag chair. I can’t keep it compressed while stuffing to get the ottoman firm enough. So I recommend this as a filling for bean bags but not for anything that needs to be firm. Im only able to reach a bean bag firmness level. So if an adult sits on the ottoman it squishes down. But fine for small kids and pets. Overall it’s good foam. It’s very small pieces so it’s definitely going to be a mess wherever you do it and you should wear a dust mask.

Great filler

I used two 30 pound boxes to fill my bean bag and it worked perfectly. The shipping was fast and the foam was very well packaged.

Great filler

The price for the 30lbs was very competitive, but the quick delivery is what truly surprised me!!

Worked perfectly!
Jan T. | January 27th, 2024
I made a giant bean bag chair for a Christmas gift for a grandchild. The chair came out great and the foam was exactly what I needed. I actually used a 30 lb bag and 3 12 lb bags. That thing was really giant!! Thanks for your help with my effort!!
great foam
Jason | June 26th, 2023
For those who actually like information in their reviews it takes 3 of the 30# bags to fill a 6' love sac super sac to capacity if your stupid cat pees on it and you have to replace all of the foam, after which it feels and smells like the original sac.
Good product
Beth Miller | May 31st, 2023
This product is so much better than the Styrofoam beads for filling a beanbag chair. It doesn't compress like the Styrofoam, therefore there is no need to keep adding more every couple weeks, it holds its shape. It is messy because it's so statically, but it's really worth the mess & vacuums up easily!
Excellent Filler
Adrian | April 24th, 2023
This foam is ideal for filler material. My only complaint would be that the packaging has an enormous opening that can make it difficult to keep the foam contained while pouring or scooping it out.

Great product

Great product. Very fair price. Relieved as ordered.
Served its purpose
Marisa | February 22nd, 2023
I bought this shredded foam to fill a bean bag. I was surprised at how small the pieces of foam were. I was expecting 1-2 inch pieces but these were tiny, .25 inch were the big ones. Made a huge mess and I feel like a lot of waste with the miniscule powder pieces flying through the air. I can't complain too much though because it did the job and seems to be great for my project. I just wish the description said how small the pieces are.
shredded foam
michael | February 20th, 2023
I bought 60 pounds of shredded foam for a cloud chair my wife made years ago. The foam was great, just what I needed, and was glad to have finally found shredded foam. I would certainly purchase more if needed.
Great product
joyce | October 18th, 2022
We used it to stuff 500 dolls for our Operation Christmas Child Boxes. Is wonderful and easy to use.
Good stuff (pun intended!)
Rebecca | October 9th, 2022
We made some large decorative pillows with some tie dyed panels. Our customers have been extremely impressed, as were we, how good the cushioning feels. Like everyone else, the stuff is messy and gets everywhere. But it's SO worth the end result. We got 2 boxes and have made 13 large pillows, and still have enough to fill about 6 more. And we're stuffing them fairly thick. We will definitely be ordering again!
Johnny | September 13th, 2022
It was quite the experience unpacking this stuff amd getting it into my homemade 5'x5' cushion. Be warned, this stuff sticks to everything and the more you resist its loving embrace, the more it clings to you. I also didnt realize that the shredded foam was shrink wrapped 9 ways to sunday. Getting the plastic off and the contents into my cushion before it exploded all over my living room floor felt like some kind of game show timed trial. Especially getting the last layer of plastic off, which somehow ended up at the bottom of my cushion. Regardless, I am extremely pleased. The cushion is squishy yet firm and puts anyone who lays upon it into a Thanksgiving night after-dinner sleep trance. It's perfect. I def will buy another for my giant bean bag chair.

Order delivery was fast the foam was good quality and it was more that what I need Thanks
Great Price - SMALL pieces
Jennifer O'Brien | August 22nd, 2022
These are by far the cheapest foam pieces on the market however, they aren't cut up cubes or anything, it's the paper shreds of the foam world, tiny little pieces, many no bigger than a dime. I suggest buying a cheap ($3) painters plastic tarp to put down before you open it. It expands to a huge amount of foam. We used this for fake sandbags for a museum display and it was perfect.
Great service
Patricia Laderer | August 11th, 2022
I was very happy with the service I ordered my shredded foam for a beanbag on a Monday and had it by Friday I am definitely going to order again very soon thank you for your quick service
BARRY MABRY | August 8th, 2022
Absolutely a perfect purchase experience in every way. Product was exactly what I needed to fill a 7' diameter bean bag/bed. Saved $$$ over the generic fillers sold on Amazon. Service was excellent and shipping fast. Hope I have a need in the future for this foam product. I will definitely use Foam Factory.
Tay Butler | July 1st, 2022
I replaced foam in my 5ft bean bag which was just huge lumps of foam. The texture and feel of this foam in the bean bag is so nice. It was extreme shreds and the bag is so soft now. Packaging was excellent, shipping was fast. I highly recommend this company and their product! The customer service is superior as well.
Perfect product!
T Woods | June 7th, 2022
There was foam EVERYWHERE at the end of my project but it turned out better than even imagined! My sofa feels like a dream! Thank you so much! I have so much leftover, it’s ridiculous. Great value!
Brittany Kinney | May 16th, 2022
Wow great quality and so comfy it was perfect thank you
Great Product
Carol Thurston | May 13th, 2022
I have ordered from Foam by Mail 4 times now. I have replaced worn out seat cushions on a sofa and loveseat using the custom cut feature and the shredded foam to replace the back cushions. The prices are very reasonable, the service and shipping has been super fast and the product is high quality. I have been very pleased with the results of fixing up older furniture. I still have some throw pillows to either re-do or make new and will order from again. And it's always fun to watch the foam expand when opened!!
Great product
Dana C | May 6th, 2022
Purchased for refilling bean bags chairs. Worked wonderfully. Messy to fill, but then goodness I went to the garage with it and swept up what didn't make it into the bean bag. I used about 1/3 of what I ordered as it went a lot farther than I thought.
Bridget | April 6th, 2022
Happy with my order, I greatly underestimated how much the foam would expand and made a huge mess. I'm using the foam to make giant floor/play pillows for my children and they absolutely love it. It's soft enough for them to fall on. Our dogs really like the foam too. The foam came early, a lot earlier than I expected. It arrived in 3 days. It was boxed properly, had no weird smells. I will definitely order from this company again when I need foam.
Wow! 😍
Sunny | December 27th, 2021
I had big plans to make giant bean bag chairs/cuddle cubes as gifts for my teens, and I wanted them to be perfect! I searched for a long time and finally decided on a 30 pound pack for each cube. It turned out to be exactly what I wanted! The foam is so soft and squishy, it's like laying in a cloud! It does compress a bit after awhile, but it quickly fluffs right back up with a good shake! My teens love their new giant puffs, which is really the most important part for me. And I honestly loved the first two so much, I ordered three more packs and will be getting even more soon! The biggest downside was definitely the mess but it vacuums up easily enough. Because I specifically made my cubes to use one whole package, what ended up working the best for me was leaving a large gap in the seam of the liner and putting the entire plastic package of foam inside. Then I carefully sliced through the outside of the plastic and pulled the pieces out of the seam, leaving the foam inside. I sewed up the liner, then broke whatever lumps were still stuck together. It kept 99% of the foam inside and went really quickly! I highly recommend this fluffy stuff, it is absolutely outstanding and so worth it!
Great for bean bags!
Amy | December 4th, 2021
I bought this to fill 6 bean bag chairs I use in my classroom. There was no way I was paying for beans for all 6 of them. It worked perfect, but it was messy. I made the mistake of filling them in my living room. Foam was everywhere. It took me forever to vacuum it all up because it kind of stuck to the carpet. I won’t make that mistake again . Definitely worth the price.
Great for floor lounger
Sara | February 8th, 2021
I made a large floor longer for my teenage nephew (used all 30lbs). He absolutely loves it. I have ordered foam elsewhere prior and I prefer this as its shredded finer making for a less lumpy lounger. Will order again!
Great for bed pillows!
Shari D. | November 9th, 2020
I bought an 8lb sack of this over a year ago and I'm STILL making bed pillows out of it. I like it a lot better than memory foam (shredded or not) which feels like a block of wood, or puffy polyester fiberfill which feels hot and smushes down. Standard foam that's been shredded like this is the ONLY thing that's ever worked for me in a bed pillow. I sleep on my side and I need support, but also don't want to feel like I'm sleeping on a wooden block. I've sewn my own case to hold this foam and even bought zippered cotton pillowcases from Walmart which worked great because I could adjust the amount of shredded foam for my head. I also found that tossing my pillow into a dryer on low for 10 minutes helps pump it back up. Thank you, Foam by Mail, for offering a good product at a great price. Oh, and BTW, you're probably thinking, well, I may be able to save a few dollars by buying the same thing on eBay. Good luck with that! Most of those vendors slip in hard pieces of foam or pieces of foam that are yellowed and old into your mix and after you pick all that out, you're not saving any money at all. Stick with Foam By Mail. They'll do right by you! :)
Great for horse arenas
venice Training Liston | September 24th, 2020
This so far has worked out great for our outdoor arena for our horses we needed something that has cushion and that absorbs water to help with dust.. So far so good i will be ordering more soon ...
Great product but packaging is terrible...
RLK | July 5th, 2020
I ordered this after being tired of continuously buying bean bag beans. So far they are working great. My only complaint is the packaging. The box it came in was almost bursting at the seams. It’s wrapped in a bag, which was placed in a huge garbage bag, which was wrapped in plastic wrap and then stuffed into the box. WARNING: the stuffing will get EVERYWHERE. Fill your bean bag/project outside. My only complaint is the packaging. If there were an option to have it put into bean bag filling friendly packaging I would have gladly paid extra for that. If the packaging were better I would have given five stars.
Great product
J.Beasley | March 12th, 2020
Order foam to fill out our bean bags, it worked out great. Highly recommend.
chill pods
Michael E Haley | February 24th, 2020
We make chill pods, are own bean bag chairs for special needs children. this is perfect to hold bigger kids.
Good price
Nancy | February 12th, 2020
Purchased this to stuff some amigurumi that I was making. There is a lot for the price. Slightly disappointed that the pieces were smaller than I thought so stuffing this is REALLY messy and difficult to get off the outside of the work. I’d look for larger pieces next time but it may be years before I run out of this.
great product
Jeff | February 5th, 2020
Good product filled big Joe bean bag with extra leftover, a bit messy filling recommend placing a tarp or plastic down in area filling product and wearing shorts pieces of foam stick to clothing
Great product

Ordered 30 lbs of shredded foam. Worked out great! Was worried about it having an odor. Nope, no smell!
World’s Largest Foam Bag Chair!!!
C. Born | January 29th, 2020
I made a HUGE oversized bean bag and filled it with 105lbs (3 35lb bags) Shredded Conventional Foam. The foam bag is a HIT! It is sooooo comfortable, I keep falling asleep in it. The foam is perfect and bounces back quickly. A+ For the foam. I ordered more to make dog beds!
Nice foam
Elizabeth Erskine | January 23rd, 2020
I liked this foam, I used it in the zipper sack liner as part of my huge bean(foam) bag fill up. I got the bag as a gift, it's so huge - I need more foam to get it filled up. This is nice foam to use :-)
Incredible price for a reliable product
Kiefer | January 22nd, 2020
I love this stuff! First off, let me say that this is a ton of foam! It was perfect for filling my giant Snorlax as someone else commented. Even had some leftover to fill a limp floor cushion that now looks excellent. Shipping was very fast - could not recommend enough if you need some foam!

Petrina Slade | January 18th, 2020
Just the type of shredded foam I was wanting. Pillows turned out great!
Avery Galtney | January 15th, 2020
I have searched for months even after receiving the foam from this company, but i CANNOT find shredded foam cheaper anywhere! I've been sleeping on this bag i made for about a month straight and it's still comfortable.
Stuffed a Pokemon snorlax
Joseph Rowley | December 26th, 2019
I got 30 pounds of foam to stuff a 5 foot tall Pokemon snorlax and the quality of foam is great. I still have 5-10 pounds of it and plan on using the rest incase snorlax needs more lol
Great product. Very pleased
Rhonda | November 20th, 2019
Fast shipping Clean foam. Very happy. Worked great 👍🏻
Handmade Pillows
Darryl D | June 5th, 2019
I recently ordered more shredded foam for stuffing my handmade decorative throw pillows. I’ve found the repurposed scrap or recycled foam to work very well. The firmness holds up over time. Great value as well.
Dog Owner
MRW | May 29th, 2019
Purchased this shredded foam to restuff a dog bed (XL slumberball). The foam worked great for restuffing and it took ~1/2-2/3 box to fill the bed. Dog looks very comfortable.
