Are Funsquare kids play sofas safe enough to incorporate in your lounge room?

4 min read

Aussie mums and kids are falling in love with the Funsquare play sofa, finding them the perfect addition to play whether they’re set up in the lounge room for the whole family to enjoy, or a playroom addition that the kids can take full control over. 

They’re ideal for endless creativity, developing early cognitive and social skills, improving motor function, providing sensory experience, and so much more. 

But a lot of parents are stuck on one point: are these kids' sofas actually safe enough to incorporate into your everyday life?

The answer is YES - these kids' couches were specifically designed with children’s safety in mind. And we’re here to back up that statement with the #facts. 

“We love it! My son (1 year old) climbs up and sits on the couch himself to read books. He loves playing on the builds we make him. It is our new favourite toy. We use it everyday!”

Small-lightweight manoeuvrable (and safe!) pieces

These kids play sofas are perfect for creativity, and the best part is they're made of lightweight maneuverable pieces perfect for keeping little ones safe


Funsquare play couches are made up of a thick base, thin base and trapezium pillows to create the perfect padded effect. But the thing that makes Funsquare stand out from the rest is that these modular designs consist of small, lightweight manoeuvrable pieces that will NEVER squash your little ones. 

It means that, as your kids create and explore, they can freely move the pieces around - without any adult support! - and exert all their boundless energy into these couches, without any nasty surprises. 

We’ve even made sure that the zippers used can be hidden, so you don’t even have to worry about minor scratches or injuries from that!

“Very impressed with the quality, material and colour. It's very dense, so stable and safe. We're having lots of fun with it.”

~ Lauren


“Our boys love this!  It’s most often used in various climbing frame or obstacle course configurations, other times a cubby house, and this morning even a car complete with a toy cupcake tray as the steering wheel. Regardless of how it’s used, it’s the best way to tire our two toddler energy machines out for bed and my family couldn’t be more thankful.  Well worth the investment and such a great colour!

Carefully tested materials

At Funsquare, we use carefully tested materials in all our creations so they're ultra soft AND safe on your little ones' skin


Funsquare sofa sets are made from premium-quality Australian foam and water-resistant treated imported microsuede fabric. All of the materials used in the creation of these playroom couches are soft and kind to little ones’ skin - but they’re also durable and dependable, easy to clean and resistant to wear and tear. 

Which is pretty great. It means you get the best of both worlds: ultra-safety and ultra-convenience for you too!

Plus, the easy-to-clean nature of our play couches help you rest assured that they’re never at any risk from nasty bacteria or old dirt or grime. 

All of the materials used across our range have also been carefully tested to pass the highest quality standards. That’s a big part of how we’ve made sure these materials are super safe for little ones’ skin. 

Our fabric is independently tested and certified Standard 100 by OEKO- TEK and our Australian-made foam is GECA and AFRDI certified for your peace of mind too. 

“I knew I wanted to buy a Funsquare couch when I was pregnant, it was the best purchase I made. I love how soft and easy to clean the fabric is. My daughter loves it, I can’t wait to buy another set!!”

~ Louisa


“Our 2 year loves it. Climbing, falling, hiding, building, playing. He plays with it all day, every day. It is easy to clean, easy to move around and easy to pack up. Highly recommended.”

~ Cassi



Unbelievable comfort (for all!)

The Funsquare kids play sofa isn’t just safe thanks to its super lightweight pieces or the carefully tested materials, it’s also safe because our pieces are still firm enough to provide incredible comfort and support for all.

Funsquare bases are safe AND comfortable - providing enough support for the whole family to lounge in


These pieces are lightweight, but the foam we use has been designed with the optimal density and hardness ratio to provide the best support for your couch set. 

It’s probably the biggest surprise for our customers - realising how much adults can benefit from this incredibly well-built material too! It turns the Funsquare play couch into an amazing lounge room addition for all to enjoy. 


“We have had this playcouch for more than a month now and it just keeps adding value! Not only do the kids love building and playacting with it, my husband has found that sleeping on it helped his sprained back, because he says it's just the right amount of firm and give. Even my son asks if he can sleep in the living room because it helps him fall asleep quicker to sleep on the thick base … Definitely money well and happily spent.” 

~ Sharon


“It’s nice and firm and sturdy. It makes the perfect spot to put down our 8 months old daughter and it’s great for getting down to play with the kids ... Great quality and so easy to clean. Highly recommend!”

~ Marian
