The Figgy couch was born at the heart of cozy, where Shenanigan Kids co-founders Ryan Cocca and David Baron dreamed it up.
They imagined something comfortable and versatile that allowed kids to relax and lounge however they like. Completely customizable and totally comfy, the Figgy is an affordable option for parents who want to let their kids bounce, crash and cuddle up on a durable piece of furniture actually designed for active use.
From imaginative play to prime seats in your home theatre, the Figgy can be configured to serve any purpose kids dream up. They comfortably fit 2-3 children for lots of group fun. Perfect for a playroom, rec room, or in the corner of any living space.
In this post we’re going to review the Figgy Couch from Shenanigan Kids and give information on pricing, shipping, materials used and more.

Waterproof liners ensure that accidents and spills never spoil the fun for long, while covered zippers project floors and elbows. Velcro strips allow kids to assemble and disassemble the Figgy into whatever configuration they dream up.

Any age can enjoy a Figgy. Kids and teenagers feel right at home in them, but if you’re an adult, you may prefer the couch.
And actually, that’s the whole idea: to get elbow, feet and apple juice sippy cups to a place where they can play around. However, adults can enjoy the Figgy too when the kids head to bed.
How does The Figgy compare to the Nugget Couch and other alternatives?
- Nugget Couch – At $229 the Nugget has longer, more rectangular cushions and the base is one piece. It’s been around longer and comes in many different colors, but not as many add-ons as the Figgy. The Figgy is more versatile and customizable. Unlike the Nugget, the Figgy has waterproof liners. You can read our entire Nugget Couch review here.
- Foamnasium Blocksy – Also priced $229, this is a very similar concept with quite different materials. Foamnasium is similar to the mats found in gymnastics and tumbling. The Figgy is designed for lounging and relaxing as well as playing, with a soft cover.
- Jaxx – Jaax has convertible pieces available for toddlers, and adult pieces and furniture for offices and living spaces.
