What is a Nugget?

The Nugget is the original play couch! It's infinitely configurable, and made up of four foam pieces (base, cushion, and two triangle pillows) that come covered in a washable fabric in the color of your choice. 

What are the dimensions and weight of the Nugget?

The Nugget is 33" deep and 66" long in its standard configuration — the seat is 8.75" above the ground, and it's 22.25" high to the top of the pillows in the standard configuration. The Nugget box measures 15" x 15" x 34".

The whole Nugget weighs 27 lbs — that's the sum total of the base (12 lbs), the seat cushion (9 lbs), and the two triangle pillows (3 lbs each).

What’s the Nugget made out of?

It's a harmony of open-cell polyurethane foams, cloaked in soft and durable fabric to achieve that elusive "just right" feel. We use 1.8 lb/ft3 foam, rated at 34 Indentation Load Deflection (ILD) units, for flexible comfort. Then 1.5 lb/ft3 foam, rated at 44 ILD units, for soft support. And 1.4 lb/ft3 foam, rated at 60 ILD units, ensures lightweight strength.

Where is it made?

Every Nugget is manufactured one at a time in Butner, North Carolina at Nugget HQ. We use fabric sourced from Vietnam, China and El Salvador, and foam produced in North Carolina.

Is the foam safe?

It’s CertiPUR-US certified to exceed safety standards. It’s mercury, lead, and formaldehyde free, and VOCs are minimal to protect indoor air quality. We’ve been told that foam certifications aren’t the most exciting thing on Earth. But we care, so you can be carefree.

Does it have flame retardants?

Nope! No harmful flame retardant chemicals are applied to the foam or the fabric. And the Nugget still passes California's TB-117 fire safety regulation.

How can it be stored?

The Nugget is almost as versatile in storage as it is in use. Fold up the base and cushion (handles up) for stowing away in a closet, or flatten them out to slide under most beds (8.75" tall).

Is there a weight limit?

Nope! The Nugget is made of strong, supportive foam — without bendable and breakable bolts and bars. It's one size sits all.

Are there any rules for playing with the Nugget?

We know, we know... rules aren't always the most fun, but safety is at the top of our priority list. It's why all of our products go through extensive testing, long before they land on your doorstep. Nuggets make excellent forts, theatrical backdrops, cozy reading nooks, and so many more things that your kiddos will think of before we do... but, like many products for the little ones we love most, they should not be used without adult supervision.

Nuggets are meant for open spaces and should be used with caution on hard surfaces. If your Nuggeteer is extra adventurous, we highly recommend sticking with setups that are close to the ground, as the Nugget is made out of foam and is, by nature, a pliant and lightweight substance — the product should not be used as a launchpad or a jungle gym.

We created the Nugget to give Nuggeteers endless options for open-ended, imaginative play, but we are not responsible or liable for the use of our products outside of our factory.
