I don’t often dedicate a full post to one product or discovery, but this one has been such a huge hit and I’ve received SO many questions about it via email and Instagram messages that I feel like it deserves its own post. If you only buy your family one thing this year, it should be a Nugget.
If you aren’t already familiar with the magic that is the Nugget and are thinking “what the heck is a nugget?” then this post is your answer. It is part furniture, part playground, easily portable and washable, safe and comfy, and basically the perfect product for my family. And while it might seem like a gift for your kids (and it is, mine are obsessed!) it is also a gift for YOU. Because once you bring a Nugget into your home, you won’t hear yourself saying things like “stop jumping on the couch! That’s not a toy! No climbing on the furniture!” The Nugget is meant to be jumped and climbed on, but it is also a kid-friendly, comfy, and washable place to sit, sleep, cuddle, read, and relax.
My kids are known to read on it one minute and then drag it into different formations to play. They create castles, perform puppet shows, and build jump ramps, tunnels and slides. It gives them a place to play and focus their energy indoors, which is a lifesaver when the weather doesn’t allow for outdoor play. And as a mom of three little boys, I can’t tell you how much this has saved my sanity! My boys no longer destroy my white sofa. They don’t rough house in the living room. They aren’t bouncing off the walls. And they haven’t been bored, because there is always a new idea or creation we can make with our Nugget. The possibilities are endless.
They climb mountains. They slide. They tunnel. They hide. They perform. They fly. They let their imaginations go wild and have fun. My oldest even turned it into a Haunted House for his little brothers around Halloween. He performs puppet shows for them. They all are able to work on their gross motor skills and balance without even realizing it.
Many have asked what room we have it in. We recently moved into a new home, so right now the nugget mostly lives in the front room (which would be considered a living room) because we have no furniture in there yet and the kids love to play on it. Sometimes we bring it into the family room and the kids watch tv on it while my husband and I get the couch. When my oldest son was sick and didn’t want to sleep on his top bunk, we moved it to his room and he slept on it all night (and loved it!). It fits a twin sheet perfectly, so it will be great for sleepovers down the road too. Eventually, it will go down in our basement for movie and game watching and play and I’d like to get a second one to go in the “living room” which we will be turning into a family library. Since we got this one they have released new colors and I’m dying for a grey one with the matching zipper for a more styled space, while our current one in the vibrant blue fits perfectly into a more fun and relaxed room.
Side note: we also love that Ruggish play rug, which is a stylish design on one side, and flips over to be a modern and fun road design on the other. My kids love playing on it and laying on it, and I love that I can flip it over when they are done and make the room look more like a grown up space.
We’ve had ours for almost two months and it is in just as good of shape as day 1. The pillows hold up to all of the jumping and climbing and sitting. I haven’t had to wash it yet, although the covers do unzip and are machine washable. Not a day has gone by that we haven’t used it since we got it, which to me is the best sign of a must-have product.

Last but not least, if you were hoping for a Black Friday deal, you’re in luck! On Black Friday they’ll be doing two things:
1) Bringing back old Nuggets at $209.
2) Sharing a $10-off code while supplies last for all Nuggets on the site.
New Nuggets (the new color releases with matching zippers) will bump down from $229 to $219 with the code. Our Nuggets (the older colors with white zippers) will bump down from $209 to $199 with the code. The code will be released on Nugget’s Instagram feed and it’ll be an as-supplies-last deal. Nuggets go fast, so be sure to follow them for the code. And as always, they have free shipping to the lower 48 states and offer multi-pack discounts ($25 off each additional Nugget in your cart automatically)!
So that’s why we love our Nugget in a nutshell. We hope to add to our Nugget family in 2018 and I’ll be sure to share more on my instagram feed as well, so follow along there to see all the ways my boys love to use it. You can also see past posts on IG under the #thefredrickboysandtheirnugget feed.
Do you have a Nugget already or is one on your Holiday wish list this year?
