Comparing a Nugget and a Foamnasium Blocksy? Let’s put them side by side to see which is better for your family!
We love our Nuggets, but there are a lot of great alternatives. I’m not going to call Foamnasium Blocksy a knock off because it’s really been around a while, but it is the most popular Nugget alternative.
They are very comparable but have a few key differences. Let’s break it down!
Note: I own a Nugget but not a Blocksy, but I have nothing against Blocksy! Click here for my full Nugget review.
What are the differences between a Nugget and a Blocksy?
The Nugget is made of microsuede which is soft to the touch.
Blocksy is made of a medical grade vinyl. So, it’s more slick.
Some parents love that it wipes clean, others complain that it slips when building forts.
The Nugget covers zip off and are machine washable. Don’t put them in the dryer!
Blocksy covers don’t come off but are wipe-clean.
