How long can I keep it compressed in the box?

Nuggets don’t like to live in their boxes, the sooner you can open up your Nugget the better. The Nugget travels to you tightly compressed and wrapped up like a foam burrito — but the longer it’s in there, the longer it will take to pop back to form and un-wrinkle, so we strongly recommend you open your box as soon as it lands on your front doorstep! Nuggets left in their box longer than 15 days from delivery will not be covered by our product defect guarantee.

How long will it take my Nugget to expand after I open it?

Because Nuggets travel to you in a tightly compressed burrito, we ask that you give them one to two weeks after opening to fully fluff back to form. Foam is super malleable, so it's not uncommon for it to look a little wrinkly and smushed in certain places right after opening. However, it is 100% ready to be played with! We've found that having your kiddos play with the Nugget often helps the foam find its original shape faster than it would if it's just sitting idly by. 

What is the current turnaround time for orders?

Through the end of the year, all orders placed through our new lottery system will ship within three weeks! Backorders will ship starting in 2021. Right now, we don’t have a more specific timeframe for shipping Backorders, but we’ll keep you updated via email in the weeks and months after you place your order!

How can I get in touch?

We’re still a small team, so to serve as many customers as thoroughly as possible, we don’t take phone calls. The best way to reach us is our email address, On the heels of our biggest release ever, our Customer Team is working overtime to get back to you as soon as possible. 

Can I use PayPal?

We are not accepting PayPal at this time. We will update customers as soon as it is back as a payment option!

Has the Nugget changed over time?

Yes! Every once in a while, we make product changes based on a number of variables, including manufacturing, operational, and customer feedback. If any product changes were to impact the play experience, or were so big that they might impact product use between products purchased at different times, we would absolutely make sure to communicate them to our customers through our social channels and newsletter. 

Is shipping really free?

To the entire contiguous United States, yes! For non-contiguous U.S. states (Alaska and Hawaii), we do have an additional shipping cost of $49 per Nugget. For orders headed to Canada, the shipping cost is $59, $49, or $39, for a Nugget, Pillow Pack, or Cover Set, respectively.

What comes in the box?

Each Nugget ships in a big orange box, and a full set is four pieces. The four pieces (two supportive pillows, one thinner soft seat cushion and one thicker sturdy base) are compressed and rolled tightly in the box — then shipped via right to your door.

Where can I buy a Nugget?

We value being able to pack and ship each Nugget here at Nugget HQ in Butner, North Carolina. Because we make and ship all Nuggets, the only place to buy a Nugget, Pillow Pack, or Nugget cover set is right here on our site.

Can I wash it?

With ease! The microsuede is really durable, and machine washing works great. Wash cold by itself, and hang dry to prevent shrinking. For the small stuff, we recommend spot cleaning with a moist cloth or a carpet/upholstery cleaner.

Do Nuggets ever go on sale?

Sorry, we don’t do big discounts or sales at Nugget. But it’s not all bad: keeping our price point consistent year-round allows us to pay our production staff a living wage, maintain our commitment to high-quality materials, and treat our customers fairly, past and present, no matter what time of year they purchased.

What’s the 30-day trial?

It’s how you can rest assured you’re going to love the Nugget. We’re 100% confident in the product, so we want you to find out it’s 100% great for you. For 30 days with the Nugget, try it out, then keep it if it’s everything you imagined it could be. Or return it for free if you imagined something else. NOTE: 30-Day Trial and Free Returns do not apply to Canada orders, color exchanges, cover sets that have been opened, pillow packs that have been opened, and orders of three Nuggets or more. 

Is there a product guarantee?

Nuggets were made for imagination, relaxation, and everything in between, which means that their zippers, seams, and handles should stand up to everyday use. Our products come with a limited one-year warranty that covers manufacturing defects that functionally impair the look or use of your product. Head to to read our Certified Nuggety warranty in full. If you come across a defect, email with 2-3 pictures of the issue, along with your order confirmation number so that we can help! It’s our way of saying we don’t just sit on Nugget — we stand behind it.
