PSSST  …. are you looking for a piece of children’s furniture that is functional and actually looks fabulous in your home? 

More than just a play piece, the Whatsie is a learning hub that harnesses the values of good old-fashioned fun.

The Whatsie has been created in conjunction with paediatric medical specialists and is loved by parents and little ones for its innovative multi-purpose design.  

The'sofa meets playground’ design encourages open-ended play, fosters creativity, enhances gross motor skills, and boosts confidence as children explore through climbing and tumbling…safely … YAY!

With its comfortable and versatile design, the Whatsie has been created to grow along with your child and play an imperative role in their development while continuing to stimulate their growing minds and changing needs.

Not only is it aesthetically gorgeous, but the Whatsie also oozes practicality with its easy-to-clean finish and is both stain- and water-resistant.  Win-Win!

Uniting fun and functionality, the Whatsie is a family essential that won’t be banished to the playroom but will be loved for stories, cuddles, hide and seek, and all things play.

Welcome Whatsie into your home and let the fun begin.

Some fun facts about the Whatsie:

The Whatsie consists of EIGHT individual pieces:

  • Two large bases that measure 168 cm long / 84 cm wide / 12.5 cm deep.
  • Two full-length half trapezium pieces that measure 84 cm long / 30 cm high / 25 cm deep. 
  • Two armrests perfectly sized for little hands that measure 55 cm long / 12.5 cm high /12.5 cm deep

Our half Trapeziums:

We believe they are the best on the market and here is why:

  • They cover the full length of the couch which means more room for everyone to lean back.
  • Provide greater height when used as pillars in build.
  • The top of the trapezium is 15 cm in width, making it incredibly stable to build on top as well as the perfect balance beam for little feet. 
  • One side of the trapezium piece is flat to sit perfectly flush against a wall or the play couch to be used as a plough on a truck, cow catcher on a train, front wing on a formula one car, a footrest and so much more.

Whatsie Features:

  • Proudly Australian designed and owned.  
  • Our zippers are all YKK 
  • We use CertiPur-US foam
  • Machine Washable Covers 
  • Double stitching and overlocked covers 



Shipping is a flat rate of $40 within Australia, and $60 to New Zealand.

From the moment we got it the kids have been jumping all over it. They have been working together (mostly ) to create a wide range of builds. Their imagination has improved so much since we purchased and they are watching much less TV. It has been a real saviour for the school holidays.

Full length trapeziums are a game changer. You won't regret this purchase

Kayla H.

We are loving the creativity and expression the Whatsie brings out in our kids. The Whatsie gives them the opportunity to build in teams/groups or to create a quiet cubby when an individual child (or grown up) needs some alone time. It’s truly been fun for the whole family

Rachel P.

We have another brand as well as the Whatsie. We bought the whatsie because we wanted the full length trapeziums, with the flat bit on top. So much better for building. We are selling the other to buy another whatsie.

Emily D.

I bought this for my grandson’s for Christmas. It looks fantastic and the quality is first class. He loves it and his parents love creating fun activities with it! I’ll definitely be buying to accessories for his birthday gift!

Anna B.

The foam is comfy to sit on but firm enough to withstand jumping and climbing. The kids (5&2yr) love building all different kinds of things like cars, rockets, teepees, cubbies, forts

Hayleigh D.

If it's not being used to build things its being jumped on or sat on. The quality is amazing and it is such a versatile piece of furniture. We love our Whatsie

Alanna S.

We have only had the Whatsie for a week and I already know this is going to be the most used play item for many years to come. Plan to buy all the add ons too! Great quality fabric, excellent customer service and couldn’t be happier

Anna R.

Kids loved it the minute we received it, it looks that good our family couch now needs an upgrade couldn’t be happier.

Lauren F.

Amazing quality. Much bigger than I thought but folds up super small

Nicole K.

I can honestly say that I was a little bit worried spending so much money on a couch for the kids to play with, but I’m so glad it did! The kids love it and haven’t stopped playing with it. Miss 2 and Mr 4, love building things (or having me do it haha) and using it as the perfect take off for their crash mat! I can’t wait to get more to add to it!

Louise B.

Best investment I have made for my daughter. She loves it and has hours of endless fun with it. We love our Whatsie

Anna L.

We use it all day every day, and couldn't fault the quality of the fabric, zips, or foam. For the mess and wear from both bubs and adults, and every visitor we ever have who want's to play with it too!

Diana A.

Such a good buy. Bought for my twin grandsons who are a year old and they love it in all its forms. Their parents do too - as a sofa. Lovely soft fabric, safe, cleanable, very practical. A great buy (fab company to deal with too)

Katherine L.

Exceeded my expectations of quality and my kids (4 and 1yo) absolutley love it.

Shelby J.

Best purchase ever. I was very hesitant initially due to the price tag, but finally decided to buy one in grey. I wish I had of bought one sooner. The kids love it so much more than I expected too.
