Brentwood Home has expanded its offerings beyond mattresses and bedding to include kid-friendly furniture. Their new Play Couch sofa for kids is a great alternative to the popular Nugget play couch. This couch is made with Bio foam, recycled plastics and a 100% carbon offset. It retails for under $300 and comes with a 30 day trial period. I was given a free couch for review and these are my findings.
Ordering the Brentwood Home Play Couch
You can order the Play Couch directly from the Brentwood Home website. Shipping can vary, but I received mine about a week after the order was placed. Since it is made in the USA, it will ship faster than other products, assuming it’s in stock. Each piece is compressed and wrapped in plastic to save space and cost on shipping. Keep in mind that after opening, some of the pieces will be wrinkled but this will go away on its own or you can remove the covers and tumble dry them to get the wrinkles out.
Here’s what my couch looked like right out of the box.

My Play Couch Findings
The Play Couch is the perfect piece of furniture for any playroom or just about any house with young kids. They can build forts and use their imaginations to create all sorts of structures. Each piece has a removable cover where they can be washed, not if, but when they get dirty. I had ours in our living room and while our kids are tweens, they still enjoyed laying on it while playing video games,reading or watching TV. The two flat pieces fold in half so it doesn’t take up as much space when you store it. It can even be used as a makeshift sleeping mat for sleepovers.
The cover is made with quality cloth that won’t tear easily and the zippers are durable.
My Brentwood Home Play Couch Recommendation
There are so many uses for this play couch beyond just building forts. It is a very versatile piece of furniture and it a great addition to any family room where you want to sprawl out and lounge around. I appreciate that Brentwood Home has gone the extra mile with more environmentally friendly foam and carbon offsets. Brentwood Home also has great customer service so if you find it’s not the right couch for you, it can easily be returned free of charge within the 30 day return period.
