- YKK Zippers. All our zippers come with rounded heads and fabric 'zipper garages' to prevent scratches and snags


Part toy. Part couch.

Are the covers washable?

You bet they are! Trust us, this was close to design-criteria Number 1! Pop them in your machine on a cold wash with a color-safe detergent and gentle cycle, and then line dry (no tumble-drying) to avoid shrinkage.

Do Possum Play Couches ever go on sale?

That means that we don't put The Possum on sale or do big discounts. We know you're on board with helping us build a sustainable and stable business, so thanks for your understanding, Possum club!

What's the lowdown on Christmas?

We know that a play couch is on MANY Christmas wish lists this year. A few things to know!

Our Christmas gift
All Possum Play Couches purchased before Christmas will come with a bonus Circle Set gift from our family to yours (RRP. $50 AUD), creating even more fun ways to play with The Possum! While stocks last.

Box & Storage
The Possum box is pretty compact (31cm x 31cm x 91cm), but if you want us to keep it away from prying eyes, simply tick the 'Christmas Delivery' box at checkout and we will keep it for you until December delivery.

Christmas order cutoffs
We recommend ordering your Possum before December in order to make sure you don't miss out and have enough time for Santa to deliver under the tree. Our Circle Set gift offer is limited to available stock and we expect to sell out, so the sooner you get in the better! See above for storage if you need a hand with that!

Toddler paradise!

We have the possum play couch for our almost 2 year old twins. Apart from it being comfy for lounging or reading books, they have an absolute ball playing with it, making new structures, jumping, climbing, crawling through. It keeps them entertained and best of all the design fits in well with our own home interior. Added benefit that the covers can be washed too!

We love it my boy hasn't left it alone all school holidays and he's been home 2 weeks. He uses it everyday which I love and I can see his little brother enjoying it once he's on the move. 😍 so far we have built tunnels, obstacle course, towers that we knock down, used them for beds. Possibilities are endless really considering another one already 🥳

Great fun for imaginative play and Dens!

Firstly, we were gobsmacked at how quickly it arrived, especially during covid. The cushions are vacuum packed so they take a few hours to plump out but once they are, they're firm yet soft. The material and zips are top quality. We're glad we paid a few extra bucks for the better quality.

Quality is mint & multipurpose.

Great couch! Comfy for adults to be able to sit on as well as Bub to use for gross motor skills. The older children to use to build.
Between my 3 kids the couch definitely gets a work out! We love it.

Great Fun

Delivery to New Zealand was delayed, but once it was out of the box the kids were into it. Once they got past trying to replicate others they were away, making caves surrounded by poisonous snakes to protect their treasure. I’d been looking for an open ended toy that they could build cubbies and things with, and this fits the bill perfectly. I love how multipurpose it can be.

My son LOVES the Possum

This arrives right at the start of our *lockdown* and it was a genuine life saver. Additional to the ongoing creative play thats had is the fact that our son loves sleeping on it for his day naps. As a mum who works from home, this was a huge win! I have recommended this to so many of my friends. Epic creation.

Just buy it

I was on the fence about a play couch and now I have a Possum we’re already considering our second!! My kids are obsessed with it, they want to sleep on it every night and play on it all day

We love ours!

They arrive so compact its incredible. I bought it because my son wont sleep alone at the moment so its doubling as a bed. Its so versatile my boys love it.
Be careful with the wrapping, I used a knife to cut the plastic and it went through and cut the fabric so take extra care!
Its great to build dens etc, my boys build 'ski ramps' I also set it up in the corner like a reading nook.

The best kids-related purchase…perhaps ever?

My baby boy was born in Stage 4 lockdown last year and here we are again, celebrating his first birthday under the same conditions. With all the time spent at home, playing with his 4yo sister, this was the perfect addition to their bedroom. Many hours have been spent building cubbies and landing pads - worth its weight in gold.

Great for all ages!

We have Two girls, one 11 months and one nearly 3, our 11 month old has moved so much more since having this couch. I think its because we are down on the floor with her more and she is able to explore and climb! Our nearly 3 year old has loved doing obstical courses with the couch which has saved me on the rainy days in lockdown!

I also find my husband having a sneeky snooze on it too so it's great for all ages.

I hope to add more to our collection.

Thanks 😊

Worth every cent!

I have 3 boys aged 2, 4 and 6 and we were recently in lockdown, my husband mocked me and said I bought a really expensive 'cushion', but it has been the best thing, they play for ages and start using their other toys again in the games. Good for indoor physical movement activity.
