We hear it all the time: how much Aussie mums are loving their new Funsquare Fold Out Play Couch and how thrilled their kids are too. We have an entire galleryin fact, dedicated to sharing the amazing builds and smiling faces Funsquare has facilitated. 

Why is it that mums and kids alike are going crazy for this fold out play couch? Because it ticks off every box (and more), and we’ve dug into exactly how!

What is a Play Couch?

A Play Couch is a couch designed specifically with kids play in mind!

A play couch, also known as a play sofa or a fold-out play couch, is a couch designed specifically for enriching play and encouraging development in kids in an easy, fun, and functional way. 

It consists of a foam base, removable and washable covers (for easy cleaning) and it can be folded into a number of different structures. It’s part toy, part furniture and one of the most multiFUnctional toys to hit playrooms (since the cardboard box!). 

And here at Funsquare, we’re Australia’s first fully-customisable Australian-made kids’ play couch. We’ve gained a lot of attention from mums all across Australia, and their kids are absolutely thrilled with this playroom addition. 


“Fantastic quality and beautiful colours. We got a mix of 3 colours: sunshine yellow, green and pink and looks gorgeous. Kids (4&2) absolutely love it. They play with it all the time and the couch has been an absolute savior in this wet weather. And has saved the little one falling off the couch all the time. We often wedge the couch up against our couch and it makes for a bug soft play area for them.”

Why can’t kids get enough of them?

The Funsquare Play Couch is specifically designed with kids' play in mind. It’s made with a durable foam base that provides a comfortable seating and sleeping surface, but it’s also lightweight and easy to move, making it perfect for kids to use in their rooms or living rooms. It also comes in a variety of vibrant colours that kids just LOVE! 

They can play their hearts out and encourage their creativity without any limitations or nasty injuries. (And, better yet, they don’t have to ask Mum or Dad for help!) 

Just imagine how much fun they’ll have!

 Kids love our fold out play couches because they can play their hearts out without any limitations!

Why is it that parents are so excited too?

This fold out couch isn’t just a hit with kids… parents can’t get enough of it either!

It’s also incredibly versatile and can be used in a variety of ways. It can be folded out onto a flat surface for playing or sleeping, or it can be stacked and arranged into a tent, a vehicle, or even a princess castle. The options really are endless. And with this level of versatility - it’s also perfect for smaller spaces. 

The Funsquare Play Couch is also lightweight and easy to move, making it easy for taking on the go, whether to a grandparents’ house, to a friend’s house, or even on a road trip! 

Plus, we’ve heard that parents find them pretty comfortable for themselves too..

Aussie mums love the Funsquare fold out couch


“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.”

“The customise platform is amazing. Process was simple, straightforward and with lots of fun! Took only 1 week for the Funsquare to arrive. The couch bounced back straight away and my son loves it!”
