Yes, all kids love nuggets, but if you’re a mom of a toddler or preschooler, you know that a new type of nugget is taking over living rooms, playrooms, and your Instagram feed. We’re talking about the Nugget play couch, not the chicken nugget. The Nugget has quickly gained a strong following, inspired a number of knockoffs, and honestly, it looks so fun we want to play on it too!

The Nugget is made of four foam pieces that can be used to build all sorts of forts, tunnels, and climbers that your kids can play with and explore. It can also be used to relax, lounge, and to snuggle up and read a book. The Nugget comes in a variety of colors, it’s made in America, it’s super easy to clean, and you can add additional pillows to up the fun and creativity at playtime.

When the Nugget first made its appearance online, parents scrambled to get their hands on the foam couch. However, they had to press their luck during a weekly lottery. Fortunately, getting a Nugget is much easier now and you won’t have to enter any lotteries to snag one for your kids. The website says they are fully stocked and can ship in about a week.

Now, here’s where a lot of parents put the brakes. At $229, the Nugget may not fit your budget. However, there are plenty of dupes around and one standout in a sea of mini-couches.

The Jaxx Zipline Kids Modular Loveseat comes in eight different colors and can transform from a loveseat to a play table, puppet theater, couch with ottoman, and even a ball pit. The possibilities are endless with this piece of modular furniture. Starting at $158.99, you won’t have to pay Nugget prices for a great alternative. Parents are raving about the Jaxx and say they are super impressed with the overall quality and the ways their kids are creating new playtime activities.

So, whether you choose to go with a Nugget, the Jaxx, or another version, we guarantee you and your kids will have a blast playing and lounging on a few foam squares. Who knew you could get hours of fun out of a couch?
