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.

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.

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.

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.

Absolute Genius

We got this for our 1 year old for his birthday and it's already been used to make a slide from the furniture, a fort to hide toys and a bed for Mommy next to the crib. Absolutely great purchase and perfect gift!

Love my nugg

We use these literally every day. We make them into a giant bed in the living room for movie nights, make obstacle courses for the baby, build forts, etc. I won’t stop until I have like ten nuggets.

Frequently Asked Questions

FAQ

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.

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.

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. Every Nugget couch ships to you with fabric already on it, in the color of your choice!

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, Nugget Cover Set, or Nugget Pillow Pack is right here on our site.

Can I wash it?

With ease! Our microsuede 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. We recommend using clear-color detergents like All's Free Clear. For the small stuff, you can spot clean with a moist cloth or a carpet/upholstery cleaning solution.

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! Keep it if it’s everything you imagined (or hadn't even thought of yet!), or send us a note if you were hoping for something else — we’ll be happy to walk you through the steps to initiate a return.

PLEASE NOTE that the 30-Day Trial and Free Returns do not apply to: Canada orders, Special Edition products, color exchanges, Cover Sets, Liner Sets, Pillow Packs, Gift Card purchases, Cover Club donations, orders of three Nuggets or more, and orders placed after your first Nugget purchase.

Why are some colors a different price?

Most of our fabrics are made out of a high-performance microsuede, but we also offer a few options in a double-brushed microsuede material. The double brushing adds a rich sheen and a texture to the color that brings a cozy, luxe vibe to any home! You can read more about our materials here.
