Nugget vs Brentwood Play Couch

What are the differences between a Nugget and a Brentwood Play Couch?

The biggest difference you will notice right away is that the brentwood comes with two long, half cylinder pillows called “speed bumps”.

According to Facebook reviews, the Brentwood is not as firm of foam, making it less sturdy for builds. Also, the half cylinder pieces aren’t that useful for building. However, it is said that the fabric is very nice.

The Brentwood is slightly more expensive than the Nugget, though not significantly, considering it has 2 extra pillows and the thicker fabric.

It’s said that Brentwood has a very lenient return policy, so it might be worth trying if the speed bumps interest you!
