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.

What are the pieces of the Nugget?

Nuggets are the dynamic duo of foam and fabric, with each of the Nugget’s four pieces (two triangle pillows, one seat cushion, and one sturdy base) covered in cozy microsuede that’s easy to zip on and off. The cushion and base have a seam down the middle, allowing them to be folded or flipped out for more comfy creations.

What are the dimensions 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 is designed to fit just as well in nooks and crannies as it does in big open rooms. 

The Nugget box measures 15" x 15" x 34"

What’s the Nugget made out of?

It's a harmony of open-cell polyurethane foams, cloaked in soft and durable microsuede 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 Mt. Airy, North Carolina.

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 the foam safe?

It’s CertiPUR-US certified to exceed safety standards. It’s mercury, lead, and formaldehyde free, and VOC’s 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 low is it?

The Nugget is somewhere between a bean bag and a futon, but it's not either one of them. It sits at the just-right height of 8.75" for delightful plop-downs and easy hop-ups.

How much does it weigh?

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).

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).

Can I carry it?

If you're old enough to read this, and maybe even if you're not, yes.

What room is the Nugget made for?

The playroom, the bedroom, the living room... basically any room. Thanks to its light weight and convenient carrying handles, moving the Nugget from room to room is like a magic trick. Pulling a rabbit out of a hat? We can’t help with that one.

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 the covers easy to take off and put back on?

Very. The zippers wrap from one end to the other of each piece, so friction is minimal, and you’ll feel like you're part of a NASCAR pit crew.

How do you assemble the Nugget?

Flop out the base, plop down the seat cushion, and top it with the triangle pillows. But that’s just the starting point. Castles, cruise ships and race cars await — how you arrange the pieces is up to you!
