Named one of CNBC “hottest toys for the holidays”, the Nugget four-piece portable kids couch by Nugget is the toy-furniture hybrid that parents are calling the best kid item they have ever purchased for their kids. Made of open-cell foam (covered by a soft, washable microsuede fabric), this one-of-a-kind couch is designed to withstand whatever kids can throw at it.
It turns out the world’s best kids toy is actually a couch.
With just four pieces, the Nugget play couch is super simple, and that’s what makes it special. No bells and whistles, just four foam building blocks for the most creative people on Earth: kids.
Spoonflower is thrilled to partner with the North Carolina-based company (just 20 minutes from Spoonflower HQ!) during March for the Nugget Couch Design Challenge. For this special design challenge, the Nugget team is asking the talented Spoonflower designer community to join in their design planning of a special limited-edition patterned Nugget coming later this year. Keep reading to get to know more about who the Nugget customer is and your prompt for this upcoming challenge.
Get to know the Nugget customer.
Nugget customers are mostly families with Nuggeteers (kiddos) ages 2-12. They are looking for a design that energizes their kid’s imaginations and creativity, while also fitting nicely into the context of all rooms of the home. (Nuggeteers tend to drag their Nuggets all over the house!) Nugget families are also looking for a design that all of the siblings can agree on for many more years to come.
Nugget Couch Design Challenge | Entries due by March 17
What’s bright, bold and fun all over? A Nugget couch featuring the winning design in this week’s challenge, of course! Nugget is a modular, infinitely configurable play couch for little ones, and their team is looking for a repeating non-directional pattern featuring bright, color-blocked shapes to turn into a limited edition Spoonflower x Nugget couch. Just like the kiddos who create forts or reading nooks with their couch, your geometric design should fit nicely into multiple room styles alongside growing imaginations.
The winning design, handpicked by Nugget from the popularly voted top 50, will receive a $500 cash prize and be featured on a Nugget Couch coming later this year!
Entries will be previewed on a fat quarter size: 21” x 18”. Submissions close March 17 at 3 p.m. Eastern Time. Voting begins March 19. Winners will be announced March 26. See official rules.
