D&D Futon Furniture Gray Sleeper Chair Folding Mattress

Summary

This sleeper chair is a folding mattress. It’s so easy to convert it into a bed that your kids can do it too!

The 6-inch mattress gives good support thanks to the high density foam filling

Best for kids and people 5″6 tall and under.

Pros

  • Comfortable
  • Very easy to flip this chair out into a bed

Cons

  • Backrest is not high
  • Not long enough as a bed for people taller than 5″7 to sleep on
  • Hard to remove the cover
  • Not available in many colors

Features

  • Cover: Polyester
  • Filling: High density foam filling
  • Specifications
    • Chair: 32 in W x 30 in Deep x 12 in seat height x 23 in H
    • Bed: 70 in L x 32 in W x 6 in H
    • Weight: 21 lbs
  • Assembly: None

The manufacturer says the bed form is 70-inch long. However, the available length to sleep on is less than that because the back rest does not lie flat down. Instead, it creates an awkward recline.

A customer has reviewed that she is 5″7 tall, and she just touches the edge.

With that said, this chair bed would be great for kids or people 5″6 tall and under.
