The original play couch is infinitely configurable: designed with four foam pieces (base, cushion, and two triangle pillows) and covered in a washable fabric cover in the color of your choice.
Assembled in North Carolina with domestic and imported materials. Absolutely no flame retardants. Nuggets are GREENGUARD Gold certified, and the foam is CertiPUR-US® certified to exceed standards.
Our fabric is really durable, and machine washing works great — just unzip the covers from the foam and zip them back up before throwing in the machine. To preserve color, wash on the coldest setting on your machine with only Nugget pieces of the same color, and hang dry to prevent shrinking. For full care instructions, please see our Care FAQs.
Certifications & Safety
The Nugget is GREENGUARD Gold certified, which means it was rigorously screened and scientifically tested for more than 15,000 VOCs. The Nugget passed the strictest requirements with flying colors, so it doesn't emit any harmful chemicals. You can rest easy and play all day, knowing our products are safe for children, families, and the environment.
Our foam is CertiPUR-US® certified to exceed safety standards — free from mercury, lead, formaldehyde, and ozone depleters. Additionally, 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.
*As with all soft and malleable materials, please note that dimensions may vary slightly.
Think Inside The Box (Only This Once)
A place to park your zipper
Custom zipper garages on each piece of the Nugget make the product gentle on walls and on little hands! As an added bonus, we suggest keeping the zipper parked to prevent curious Nuggeteers from accessing the foam. 😉
An elevated design
Our zippers were custom-designed with aesthetics and comfort in mind — they’re sleek and rounded, with added texture for easy zipping and gripping.
Functional and stylish
Soft, woven handles on the base and cushion make building with and moving the Nugget from room to room a breeze! The handles have been tested for long-term durability, and are designed to lay flat when not in use.

The two triangle pillows are making for a decent block from my crawler crawling up the stairs, the larger cushions underneath the big couch as a safety net, and use the large nugget to block off a room to make a “playpen”. Nugget new life uses w crawling infant.

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. For more info on proper use, please see our full FAQs.
Is shipping really free?
Within the contiguous United States, yes! For details on other shipping locations, including Alaska, Hawaii, and Canada, see our Shipping and Ordering FAQ.
How long can I keep it compressed in the box?
Nuggets can be safely stored in their boxes for up to 8 weeks after delivery, but they don’t like to live there for too long, so the sooner you can unbox, 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 recommend opening your box shortly after it lands on your front doorstep!
Please note Nuggets that are left in their box longer than 8 weeks from delivery will not be covered by our two-year product warranty, and all returns must be initiated within 15 days of delivery.
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 an original Nugget is right here on our site.
Can I wash it?
With ease! Our fabrics are really durable, and machine washing works great — just unzip the covers from the foam and zip them back up before throwing in the machine. To preserve color, wash on the coldest setting on your machine with only Nugget pieces of the same color, and hang dry to prevent shrinking. For more cleaning tips, check out our Care page.
Do Nuggets ever go on sale?
No, we don’t do big discounts or sales at Nugget. 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 all customers fairly, no matter what time of year they purchased.
