Nugget Couch vs Joey

Trying to decide between a Nugget couch and a Joey for your kids? Let’s compare them line item by line item to see which is right for you!

I live and die by my kids’ 2 Nuggets, but we are decided whether we should get 2 more when my daughter turns one or try one of the new competitors that has popped up recently!

I have been doing a lot of research comparing the options and am excited to talk about the Joey with you here today.

The Joey is by Chew Chew Baby Roo and is another option for a kids’ play couch!

Here are my 12 favorite indoor climbing toys for toddlers!

Note: I own a Nugget but not a Joey, but I have nothing against Joey! Click here for my full Nugget review.

What are the differences between a Nugget and a Joey?

The biggest unique factor of the Joey is that there are a TON of add-on pillow options. This is cool for building and great for configuring as a cozy lounge, too!

Pillows include:

  • Modular ball pit
  • Semi circles
  • Trapezoids
  • Wedges
  • Long rectangles
  • Stepping stones (circles)

Joey is a more affordable option for Canadians. The add on pieces are cool, but get expensive quickly.
