4 Reasons Your Family Needs a Funsquare Crash Pad

4 Reasons Your Family Needs a Funsquare Crash Pad

4 min read

Funsquare Crash Pads provide a unique sensory experience for children, allowing them to gain proprioceptive input through activities such as squishing, jumping and crashing - tactile input through rolling and vestibular input. This versatile tool is one of our favourite pieces of sensory equipment and our customers couldn’t agree more. 

They make an excellent sensory input to enable your kids to gain sensory stimuli and are a perfect treatment option for children with cerebral palsy, Down syndrome or any sensorimotor dysfunction.

But if you’re looking for more reasons why your whole family will benefit from a Funsquare Crash Pad before you make the leap? Here are 4 for you to consider!


1. Crash pads are great for cuddling up with a good book

The Funsquare Crash Pad provides the perfect surface for cuddling up with a book or for a mid-day nap

Funsquare Crash Pads are made from a crumbed premium quality Australian foam and encased in a special fabric liner with a safety zipper that can be hidden away. 

All of the materials used in the creation of our Crash Pads are soft and kind to little ones’ skin and the ample foam filling provides a safe and cosy place for sitting or relaxing for children. 

Parents love having a soft and snuggly place for kids to cuddle up for a nap, read a book, or just lounge around the house. They can even be taken to sleepovers, used for an “indoor camping” day or incorporated in the lounge room as a comfortable surface for movie night. 

It’s also a great way to give your kids a sense of belonging at home - if you don’t have much couch space, your child can benefit greatly from having their own spot on their Crash Pad to call their own.

2. They’re perfect for family time (with the FULL family - pets included!)

One of the best parts about a Funsquare Crash Pad is that they really can be enjoyed by the whole family.

The Funsquare Crash Pad is ideal for the whole family - from the youngest child, to the oldest adult, and great for pets too!

They’re ideal for all ages - from infants all the way to adults. It’s perfect for family cuddle time, for playing with young ones on their level, and parents are even finding it a perfect place for their fur babies to cuddle up. 

They’re built to be durable and dependable, and you’d be surprised just how comfortable they can be! 

It means you’re getting the most for your buck - a safe place for your kids to play and rest, a cosy environment for family movie nights, and a nook for your fur baby to cuddle up (with or without your kids in tow!). It’s the best of all worlds and it really does make life a lot more comfortable.

3. They’re the great landing spot

The sturdy construction of the Crash Pad can withstand all sorts of jumps and it's a big part of how we came up with the name. Parents love incorporating it in the playroom to exhaust their kids with day-long jumping, or as the final stage of an indoor obstacle course. 

It’s the perfect way for kids to exert their energy, take risks, while having security and safety in their falls. You won’t have to worry about getting them away from the TV with this one!


“This is honestly the most used thing I have bought. Both my boys (5 and 1yrs) love it. They jump non stop and also love to kick back. It’s big enough that I can sit comfortably with both. So happy with our purchase.”

~ Dimity


Just look at how well it performs under pressure! (And how much fun it really can facilitate … )


4. They’re super easy to clean and long-lasting!

Okay, now’s time for the big seller: the Funsquare Crash Pad is oh-so-easy to clean!

We understand how much of a difference cleanliness can make to parents' lives, which is why we’ve encased the foam in a special fabric liner with covers that are water-resistant treated important microsuede fabric. 

It gives them the perfect balance of softness, durability, resistance to wear and tear and, more importantly, makes them super easy to clean!

One of parents favourite things about the Crash Pad is that it's super easy to clean and super long lasting!


Which isn’t just beneficial short term: it also ensures you can provide the kind of easy care that enables your Crash Pad to last for years to come - giving you unbeatable value and true peace of mind. 

That’s right - no matter how many falls the Crash Pad catches, the materials we use ensure that it will last the test of time!


“Easy to put together. Prove to be a hit with kids -6, 4 and 1.5 years old. Even adults like to sit on it. So far it’s easy for me to vacuum (dry) it clean.”

For children of all abilities, the Crash Pad is an effective way to channel excess energy. They provide a unique sensory experience that helps children develop through the jumping, squishing and crashing activities. It’s one of our favourite pieces of sensory equipment and is a perfect treatment option for children with cerebral palsy, Down syndrome or any sensorimotor dysfunction.

But there’s so many different reasons the whole family could benefit from a Funsquare Crash Pad. They’re versatile, easy to clean, long-lasting, and provide the perfect balance of safety, durability and comfort.
