Out of stock: We’re back in our facility and producing Nuggets that were ordered at the beginning of our COVID-19 factory shutdown in late March. At current production volumes, we expect Nuggets to be available once again in June! Sit tight, and make sure you’re signed up for our newsletter for updates.

2 kids playing with a Nugget

It turns out the world’s best kids toy is actually a couch.

With just four pieces, the Nugget play couch is super simple, and that’s what makes it special. No bells and whistles, just four foam building blocks for the most creative people on Earth: kids.

2 triangle pillows

Two Supportive Pillows

They say there's two sides to every story, but if the story is about our pillows, it has three. Use them for the columns of a coliseum, the hull of a ship, or just a backrest when you need a break in between.

1 soft cushion

One Soft Cushion

The cushion may be the Nugget's thinnest piece, but without it, wall-climbers and cannonballers would be in for a rough landing. Its squishy and strong, so playroom superheroes can bounce back after big falls — just like the ones on TV.

1 base cushion

One Sturdy Base

No one likes to be on the bottom of the pile. Well, except for the base, that is. Down there it gets to provide stable, reassuring structure to the pieces above.

Frequently Asked Questions

FAQ

Is shipping really free?

Within the contiguous United States, yes! For details on other shipping locations, including Alaska, Hawaii, Puerto Rico, the U.S. Virgin Islands, and Canada, see our Shipping and Ordering FAQ.

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 Fedex 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 Hillsborough, North Carolina. Because we make and ship all Nuggets, the only place to buy a Nugget 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.

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!

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, and orders of three Nuggets or more.
