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!
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!
- Modular ball pit
- Semi circles
- Long rectangles
- Stepping stones (circles)
Joey is a more affordable option for Canadians. The add on pieces are cool, but get expensive quickly.
The Nugget comes in a microsuede and a double brushed micro suede, which is said to be better for resisting pet hair.
The Joey has a single brushed micro suede cover and an additional waterproof liner to protect the foam.
The Nugget covers zip off and can be washed in your washing machine.
Joey covers are machine washable as well.
Nugget comes in 3 classic colors (gray, navy, and black) and a set of rotating limited edition colors. Currently there are 15 limited colors!
Joey has 13 colors, though some of them have been discontinued.
Rectangular cushions are 33″ x 66″.
Rectangular cushions are 33.5″ x 67″.
Ease of purchase & delivery time
Nuggets can be ordered online and currently have a 6-8 week delivery timeline.
Joey is available to buy with a 12-14 week shipping window.
The Nugget sells for $229.
The standard Joey is $253 and includes the base pieces, two triangles, and a long semi circle sphere. All other pieces are additional add ons. To get the Joey and all add on pieces would be $755.
