What makes the Padoo special?

Why choose the Padoo?

The UK's highest quality play sofa, safe for the whole family

We first made the Padoo for our own children so we didn't just want to create a play sofa but one that was safe, non-toxic, and hard-wearing. We chose the highest quality materials over cheaper options because from our experience, play sofas are in constant use and we wanted it to last! We tested a huge amount of different products - foam with lower density soon lost its shape and bounce, and cheaper covers began bobbling and wearing thin. We didn't want our play sofas to start falling apart as so many products do today - which is terrible for the environment. And we also wanted the sofa to be safe and non-toxic so we could leave our youngest to bounce and play without worrying. Find out more about the detail and care that has gone into making the Padoo below.

Premium Microsuede

We didn't choose the cheapest faux suede material to make our play sofas, but a premium microsuede made by a leading European manufacturer that will keep your sofa looking smart and stylish.

It has an abrasion test score of over 30,000 rubs, and a colour fastness score of 5/5 for exposure to light. It also has a pilling test score of 5 out of 5, so no bobbling.

Non-Toxic Fabrics

Perhaps the most important aspect of choosing a play sofa for children is its safety profile. All our fabrics, foams and labels are Reach Compliant (Registration, Evaluation, Authorisation and Restriction of Chemicals – i.e. the materials used do not harm the environment or human health).

Our fabrics are also Oeko-Tex Standard 100 certified which means no nasty chemicals are used in any stage of production, while the 70% Polyester / 30% Cotton mix ensures luxury softness and comfort on even sensitive skin

Suitable for Young Children

Our play sofas and chairs are EN71 toy safety tested and carry the UKCA and CE certifications. Unlike almost all other play sofas on the market, our sofas have been tested to be safe for children of all ages, including toddlers and babies

Hidden Zips & Tags

Our seamless hidden zips and extra strength stitching, ensure that our play sofa won't nick your child's skin or scratch walls or furniture. We have additional safety ties on the zips so that young children cannot unfasten them.

Luxury foam

We source our foam from a leading UK manufacturer, using the highest quality foam filling made for top-end furniture and mattresses. This will ensure years of comfortable use whether as a sofa, a chair or a sleepover bed. And the perfect bounce and comfortable landing, which is perhaps what your kids will appreciate most! Most importantly, our foam does not contain any toxic compounds. Our foam can also be recycled.

A comfortable bed

With our high quality foam that isn't too firm or too soft, our kids' sofas can easily be turned into a comfortable bed - for nap time, sleepovers, or if you need to keep your child company in the night. Even the mini Padoo is easy to configure into a bed that allows adults to have a good night's sleep. As the Padoo is so easy to move from room to room, setting up a bed just takes a few minutes.

Spill & Stain Resistant

We wanted to ensure that our Padoos could withstand whatever little kids threw at them - or even a tired parent! We've tested milk, coffee and juice - and you can see from our video how easy it is to clean up a mess and simply wipe it away. You can machine wash the covers too, but you will rarely need to do so.

More stable builds

Our high quality microsuede and firm foam cushions don't slip like cheaper alternatives so our sofas make more robust builds which is particularly important for towers and slides - you don't want the joy taken out of creative play because a build your child has spent time constructing quickly collapses on them!

Perfect for smaller spaces

Our Padoos can easily be split into two - so that if you have more than one child they can each have a play chair in their own room, or you could split one between play area and bedroom. You can also buy a mini Padoo, perfect for a smaller space, while still having fantastic build possibilities.

Fast & free delivery

We have stock ready to deliver to mainland UK within 48-72 hour working hours of a purchase made by 1pm. Delivery is free for mainland UK. We can guarantee you'll get your order by Christmas if you purchase a Padoo before 12 December. And our cardboard boxes come with an extra treat for children!

Pay In Three

If you select paypal at checkout you can opt to pay in three installments. You can also use gift cards to part pay for your play sofa - which also makes a great gift for a family with younger children.
