About Us

Hey there!

We're Renee & Giorgia. Possum Play Couch creators, best friends,
and imaginative play fanatics

Our Story

We grew up destroying our childhood couches

We bet you did too, right? Pulling the cushions off, draping sheets to turn day into night, dragging all our soft toys in to be characters of our latest charade. When we started having lots of special kids in our own lives, we wanted them use the same level of imagination (and burn the same levels of energy) in their loungeroom play, without sacrificing the adult couch

As a new mum, Renee was looking for fun ways to encourage imaginative, screen-free play for her son, Finn, and as a godmother and aunt, Giorgia was constantly on the lookout for the ultimate kids gift.

So we decided to create furniture purpose-built for fun

We let our imaginations run wild and dreamt up the couch of our childhood dreams... easily movable cushions, light enough to hoist overhead, sturdy enough to turn into a slide, big enough to share with multiple siblings. The full bells and whistles.

We started researching and found some fun examples of modular play couches overseas, but nothing available in Australia, and so we embarked on building our dream play-couch together

... and The Possum Play Couch was born!

We designed the ultimate modular play-couch to live in lounge rooms across Australia and grow with your family. With infinite configurations, The Possum is flexible enough to be a jungle raft, rocket ship, or reading nook... whatever your kids dream up!

We can't wait to see what adventures the Possum Play Couch takes your family on!

What else we get up to

When we're not immersed in foam specs, shipping policies, or Instagram Stories, you can find us taking swims in the ocean (a Monday afternoon ritual), drinking hot cups of tea (no matter the temperature outside), and hosting dinner parties for family and friends from our homes in Sydney.

We know it is a dream to build a business and life alongside your best friend, and we're appreciative of every moment doing it!

There's a few things we obsess over...

Designing to last

  • The Possum Play Couch is made to grow with your kids, taking the place of dozens of toys that clutter your house and that your kids are sick of within a week. Designed for years of everyday play!
  •  

Inspiring imaginative play

  • The Possum is all about sparking the big imagination that lives inside every little kid. We love hearing about the builds, games and creations that your family has dream up
  •  

Being squeal worthy

  • For everything we do at Possum Play we challenge ourselves to find ways to spark joy for you. From the obviously fun stuff (like launching new products and colours), to the less-fun stuff (like shipping policies) we're always asking ourselves what can we do to bring some happiness and play into your day.

Fun for ALL the kids

We recently bought this couch as a Christmas gift for our soon to he crawler thinking it would be a toy that would last her for a long while. Lil miss has two older brother, ages nine and six who have used the play couch every day without fail since it arrived! So deffs a toy to last the ages!

Quality is great, the material is lovely and soft to touch and spot cleans really well when baby spills over it 👌👌

Super stoked with this purchase:)

Absolute game changer!

We absolutely LOVE our possum play couches, with 4 little kids we decided to get two! They are used every single day by everyone and are so much fun, so versatile and we are loving watching the kids be so creative! Definitely a game changer, no more couch pillows and blankets being dragged around the house! Love them very much, such good value & exceptional quality!! Highly recommended!!!

Possum play couch

This couch has been well worth it. Not only is it a massive hit for the kids to watch tv on or make cubbies but I also sneak away and chill out on it. We also use it for sleepovers in the lounge. The staff were unreal to deal with. I'm so happy with our play couch!

So happy!!

I bought a possum play couch for my grandchild. She is only eight months old but she plays on it. So comfy for Nanna to sit on it to play with her. She naps on it(baby). I’m getting another one for the holiday house for the teenagers to sleep on. Love it!

Great imaginative play for kids

Excellent quality and great colours to pick from. Very robust and can also use as a spare mattress for sleepovers. We chose the iceberg colour, very nice.

BEST present for the kids!

With three boys that love to wrestle and jump on the couch, I can say this is one of the best things we have given our kids. Now they can jump in their own couch. They LOVE it!

Loads of fun for kids

I bought this as a gift for my 3yo nephew and he absolutely loves it. He and my 8yo stepson spent hours over the Christmas holidays building houses and forts to play in. It has a permanent home under the bunk bed and serves as a quiet, comfortable retreat and an excellent spare bed option. I chose the sunshine yellow, which is a gorgeous tone and very true to the colour as shown on the website. The fabric itself is gorgeous and the zips seem heavy duty and durable. It is such a versatile piece and I have no doubt my nephew will get years of play and fun out of it.

Loved it!

I loved it so much I bought another one for my other grandson! Its going to get a lot of use of the next, many years. Great for crawling, climbing on instead of dad, hide and seek, and later on forts, cubbys and friend sleep overs!

Possum Play Beige Xmas Gift

We purchased a Couch just before Xmas. Unfortunately due to the terrible storms the original one we ordered was damaged and the wait was going to head past Xmas. Luckily and wonderfully the team was able to offer us a new colour with an added bonus of circles at no extra cost.

The product itself is wonderful. Our Son has ASD and ADHD, this product is an excellent item for him and he has already spent hours in it, building chocolate shops, forts, a bed for resting and we have only had it 2 days ! Wonderful for the imagination.

Highly recommend. The product itself is excellent quality. I want one too!

Worth every cent

My son absolutely loves his couch, he has played with it every day since he got it.
It is great for tumbling, climbing, building and lounging. The family sofa is now safe from my very active 6yr old haha Thank you 😊

Loads of fun and good quality

My children love their play couch. They let their imaginations run wild building all sorts of things and it’s great because now they aren’t ruining my couch 😆
It also doubles as a fantastic photo back drop 👍🏼

Best fun you can have at home!

Our couch was being deconstructed on a daily basis to make castles, coffee shops, forts, and possum houses. Now they have their own building blocks ( Possum Play Couch) to create their next abode with.
This gives them hours of fun on rainy or oppressively hot days, and I can reclaim the couch. That being said, these also form a very comfy couch so I have also taken to creating something comfy out of it for myself to lounge on when they are in bed out.

Love it!

Our boy loves his possum play couch. We've only had it for a couple of weeks now, but he spends hours on it every day and it brings lots of laughs and fun! It's a great fixture in our home and can see it lasting us for many years to come!

Perfect!

Loved it. My son loves it.
I've had friends asking me where to get it and they cannot wait for theirs.
Its not just for kids but for us adults.
Don't need to worry about the kids pulling apart the couch anymore. They can build so many things from a rockstar stage, race car, tent and many more!
