I recently redesigned our children’s playroom to make it a fun, safe, and cozy space for my little ones. However, there was one thing that was lacking in their playroom- comfortable seating!
I didn’t want to put a couch in the playroom because we just didn’t have the space since their toys take up a bulk of it. We’ve tried small bean bags and kids chairs, but they aren’t as comfortable as they look, especially not for adults.
I came across the Figgy and it appeared to be a perfect solution for my needs. Read on to hear my full review and whether I recommend it for your play space or not.
What is the Figgy?
The Figgy was built with dual purpose- to provide flexible seating options for both children and adults, and for kids to use as a fun toy/game.
The Figgy consists of four base cushions and two rectangular pieces. The cushions can be arranged in any way you choose- for seating and lounging, as well as for forts and tunnels.
You also have the option to purchase additional rectangular cushions or wedges or different slip covers to change the color as you wish.
A raft on the high seas. A treehouse high in the sky. A rocketship to the moon. This play couch is anything and everything an imagination can create.
Unique Features of the Figgy
Each rectangular base cushion has a strip of velcro allowing you to connect each piece to each other for easier building. This helps to reinforce the cushions while they’re situated in a triangular or more upright formation.
The materials are high quality and safe, and the foam is firm but cushy, giving it the perfect sink factor.
Washable waterproof liners ensure that accidents and spills never spoil the fun for long, while covered zippers protect floors and elbows.
Ways to Use the Figgy
Lounging: If you need seating space in your child’s playroom, this is absolutely the product that you need! I always want to sit in the playroom with my kids, but it’s tough getting up off the floor nowadays and we didn’t have extra space for a full size couch.
With the Figgy, I can hang out with them and be super comfortable. The kids love lounging on it as well while they read a book or play.
Play: I’ve told my kids not to take cushions off the couches for years! They are so happy that they finally have permission to use couch cushions to built all the tunnels, forts, and towers that they want!
My daughter loves using pretend play to make the cushions into an ice cream stand or a princess castle. My son builds little towers and slides for his superhero toys.
What I love about the Figgy
I love how comfortable the Figgy is for both parents and kids. I actually enjoy sitting on it while watching my children play.
The washability factor is HUGE for me, as well. With 3 kids under 5, I won’t by anything nowadays that isn’t easily cleaned.
The Figgy keeps then kid’s interest for imaginative and creative play, while also helping them to get their energy out.
For some kids, sitting at a table and doing a puzzle or fine motor activity is very difficult. Energetic and sensory seeking kids love to play with the Figgy because it gives them something to do with their whole body.
Lastly, I love that it comes in neutral colors to blend in with any decor in your home. Gone are the days of multi-color, bright rainbow kids toys!
Cons of the Figgy
The only cons that I can think of is the price point. It is not super affordable for everyone, but it’s definitely worth the money if you can swing it.
