Epic Fort Building Play Couch
This is the ultimate fort-building play couch, made from our most dense foam. We came up with this unique design by combining popular elements of play couches into one set. It is comprised of 8 foam pieces, which can be configured in many different ways. A cozy couch for both kids and adults, a fort, playhouse, store, pedicure station, reading nook, majestic chair - your imagination is the limit!

What it is designed for

Comes in 8 elegant colours to choose from: Light Grey, Dark Grey, Light Blue, Midnight Blue, Dusty Rose, Sand, Moss Green and Mustard Yellow. Zippers are all colour matched to the fabric.
This play couch can be combined with the following products for even more Epic builds:

Your play couch must be unboxed within 2 weeks of receiving it to qualify for warranty coverage or be eligible for any replacement due to a manufacturer defect. This is because our play couches are compressed and rolled, and if left too long, the foam may not expand fully. Play couches cannot be left in their packaging for more than a few months without risking not rebounding fully, and depending on when your play couch is ordered/delivered, it may have already been packaged for several weeks.
To avoid any chance of colour transfer, we highly recommend washing midnight blue covers once before use.
The quality is evident. Firm cushions with a great fabric cover. I love that we can make the fort from a single set.
Our kids have been playing on these everyday for hours since we got them. I wish I’d had them when I was a kid! It’s so nice to have a toy that they can use to embrace their creativity but also get some exercise. They use it for making obstacle courses and get exercise indoors during the winter.
So happy with this play couch my 5 year old and 18 month old finally have something they can play together. Even my old pup fights the kids over it .
Our 3.5 year old got the fort building couch for Christmas/New Years this year and she is obsessed! We purchased it in the fall, and since then really noticed her jumping all over our couch. She has been trying to build things, pulling the pillows off constantly, so this gift has been amazing! Santa visited just in time with the best gift possible. She is climbing, building, jumping, hiding pretty much all day long. This has been such an amazing addition in our household and we are already looking to expand our collection.
We gifted our 3.5 year old and 2 year old with this playcouch for Christmas. It has been a massive hit since, with new configuration multiple times a day that lead to hours of imaginative and active play. Both kids love jumping on it and the older one incorporates it into his make-believe, most notably as a stage for his "rock concerts" and as a rocket ship.
My one minor "con" is that the arches are slightly shorter than the connected base so when you are building a "house" they don't provide the sturdiest of walls unless the "door" is in. But it doesn't really get in the way of the experience or fun.
We looked at many vendors and configurations but ultimately opted for shopping local, and going with the Fort Builder because of the foam density (in all the pieces) and because waterproof liners are included. We have not been disappointed and anticipate many years of fun and use for this play couch (though maybe more sedate use as the kids get older).
As an added bonus, EpicKidz was so friendly and easy to work with and it was an absolute pleasure to see the product in their showroom before purchasing.
