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.

Possum play couch

Grandchildren have had great fun with this well worth the money


Purchased the pink set for my Granddaughters and they absolutely love it. Easy purchase and fast delivery. 5/5

Good quality, comfortable and fun

Bought for two year old, great to use as cubbies and playing. Comfortable to sit and lie on, feels like really good quality but it is pricey but we shall see how long it last!

Kids love it!

I have a 3 yr old and 1 year old and they play with it everyday! It's been a great purchase and the kids love it!!

Great purchase

Probably my kids favourite toy, great investment

Just fantastic

We bought this for our very active and imaginative three year old and wished we’d done it sooner as her one year old sister is equally as obsessed with it! We’re having so much fun creating obstacle courses and building everything from boats and castle dens to “Ariel’s secret underwater cave” and “sleeping beauty’s bed”. Highly recommend and can’t wait to see them grow with it and start building their own make believe constructions. Can see it being a future staple in movie nights and sleepovers too!!

Best money I’ve spent yet!

Absolutely thrilled with our possum play couch! I purchased this for my daughters first birthday and for a month this has been used all throughout the day, every day, in many different ways. It is perfect for soft play climbing, cubby-housing and cosying up for story time. Also - the sunshine yellow adds such a gorgeous bright energy to our play space. Will be used for years and years to come!

Best fun for our toddler

The Possum Play Couch has been an awesome addition to our toddlers room. We read books on it, have tea parties, build it into a stage and a cubby house. We couldn’t be happier with the versatility between functional couch and play space.

Well worth the money

By far THE BEST THING IVE EVER BOUGHT!!!! My son(2 years ) and daughter(1year) love it. It’s great for everything chillin playing and even sleep overs for their friends and even themselves in each others rooms

High quality, very comfy, lovely material and a nice colour (sunshine yellow). The possum lounge was recommended by friends and we are happy with our investment.

Best purchase!

We bought the mini version as we don't have alot of space and it is just perfect! My one year old loves it so much! Highly recommend!!! The sage colour is beautiful 😍

My 1 year old granddaughter loves this. It’s so much fun to watch her climb and play on it

A brilliant addition!

Purchased for my 4yo birthday. She loves it, as does my one year old. They play with it almost daily - favourite set ups being slide and dens for tea parties. Looks lovely in the room and will definitely add to it in the future.

Worth It

Was tossing up purchasing for a while and once I pulled the trigger I was not disappointed. Endless hours of creativity and we also use it for naps/quiet time throughout the day. Definitely worth the money

Hours of fun

Kids absolutely love thier possum play couch, they use it constantly and it opens up a whole new world of play.

We can’t wait to add the additional pieces to the collection!

Grandson love

Just as it was advertised, grandson loves it. ❤️

Love it! Great for imaginative independent playing

My kids 4 and 2 love it, and I do too! We spend so much time building and hiding in the fort. worth every penny. I picked the sage green colour and looks amazing in my coastal house! It is a place for us to hang out and cuddle too!

Best present I have ever brought

I brought the play couch over a year ago for my 2 toddler sons, they loved it so much, and play with it every day, we have now purchased some of the shapes and jumbo covers to go with it. The possibilities are endless.. We have built dens, and vehicles, soft play obstacle courses and adventure play areas. We have used it as a giant bed for family camp outs in the lounge. Honestly it is worth every penny.

Perfect for kids!

We love our play couch, lots of fun and different creations been enjoyed already. Comfy and lovely fabric. Quick delivery too!


I was worried my kids were too old (4+6) for this. But I bit the bullet and I'm so glad. They've played with it daily for weeks now and I love seeing all the new aspects to what they build. It's absolutely brilliant. So good. Great design and well thought through. Thoroughly enjoying it. And hopefully will for years to come.

Super fun!

The kids love it! Fantastic quality product and keeps the kids entertained for hours along with the rest of the play couch pieces! Would highly recommend!

Very very good fun!

It is very very very good for kids, I like creating things, it is comfy even for my Grandpa. I will play with it for a long time!
