What's to love: Like the large round bouncy exercise balls some folks use for a healthier way of sitting, these bouncy stools work the same way to increase a better way of sitting, but take up much less space.
What does it do: The compact bellow-style stool comes in five colors and is made in the United States of a recyclable technopolymer. The stool, says the maker of ErgoErgo, is slightly unstable, which encourages active sitting -- small movements that engage a body's core muscles to build strength and flexibility. The ergonomic stools may be used inside or out. The standard size sells for $100, ExtraErgo for taller or larger people sells for $140 and the child size KidsErgo costs $75.

Stuff 'N Sit
What's to love: Sometimes it's nice to have a comfy pouf to sit on. Even better is one that will help a child organize and clean up a room when stuffed-animals start to take over.
What does it do: The poufs are made of a strong soft cotton in a variety of fun patterns and colors and have a long reinforced zipper. Unzip and fill up with soft-toys. Also works for storing extra sheets or blankets. Available in standard ($29.95) and extra large ($34.95) sizes. For more information, visit creativeqt.net.
