FAQ

What the heck is a play couch?

A Bodhi Play Couch is a piece of furniture designed for kids. Also known as a modular sofa, it is a completely flexible system designed for open ended play.

It is designed as not only a couch, but also to be used as building cushions, allowing your child to create different set ups or objects.

It completely transforms the playroom, and we guarantee it will be used every day!

It is suitable from newborn stage to teens - but can be comfortable for adults too.

The dimensions are 168cm wide, 84cm deep and 60cm high when assembled as per photo below.

Currently we are having these made offshore, with the hope to move operations to Australia in the future.

 

What comes in the box? What do I do when I receive it?

Our Bodhi Play Couch is compressed into a box 90cm x 37cm x 37cm. Each box contains four pieces of play couch, the two bases and the two triangles.

When you receive it, slide the rolled up couch out, CAREFULLY cut the outer plastic, allow to unroll, then cut the end of the plastic bag to allow the magic to happen!

It may take a while for some pieces to expand fully, do not be alarmed. In the event a piece doesn't regain shape, or you would like to speed up the process, please email us at andy@bodhiplaycouch.com.au for advice.

Please open the box within two weeks of receiving, as the foam shouldn't stay compressed too long

Ok, it's here - How do I care for my play couch?

Warm machine wash and either line dry flat in the shade, or warm tumble dryer.

We recommend vacuuming weekly to keep in pristine condition.

You can use a wet cloth with liquid soap for small stains.

Can we talk about the foam?

We spent over 6 months trying to source and perfect our foam. And its finally perfect! Not too firm, not too soft, good for bouncing, sleeping and building. It is the BEST foam we could possibly produce, and we are so proud of its quality, feel, safety and smell (NO SMELL).
Come and see it, feel it, sit on it yourself in our Marrickville store.

Our base is firm- with an IDL ( Indentation Load Deflection - this is how foams firmness is measured) of 45 - perfect for building, climbing and also makes for a sturdy couch for even adults! The thinner layer is slightly softer, with an IDL of 35 - so it feels like a cloud! Our aim was to make a couch that was comfortable enough to jump on from a high height, but also firm enough to withstand years of rough play!

Our high density CertiPUR-US® foam is what sets us apart - it is flexible, strong and extremely durable! The density of our foam is 1.8lbs/ft3 - which equates to a lifespan of 5-10 years. (This is based on everyday adult couch use - so for children’s use it will last even longer!)

Our foam is certified and listed on the CertiPUR-US®, which is the gold standard for foam safety. Since it's certified, you can safely know that your play couch is: Free of formaldehyde, phthalates, mercury, lead, and other heavy metals. Low VOCs* (Volatile Organic Compounds), so no weird smells and no lowered air quality. Made without PBDEs, TDCPP or TCEPC flame retardants. Made without ozone deleters and is environmentally innovative. *VOCs are generally human-made chemicals that emit as harmful gases from things like foam.

Micro what?

Our covers are made from premium luxury microsuede.

It feels soft like butter, it's got a tiny bit of a stretch (perfect for soft landing). It fits like a glove (no loose or saggy parts).
It is water and stain resistant, and pet friendly.
Most importantly, it is machine washable - see our Care tab for more info.
It has gone through multiple lab tests to ensure it's safe, and chemical free.
