Hey Figgy fam! We want to help guide you on your play journey! We've curated a list of products that we personally LOVE over at Figgy.

1. Play Silks: The Magic of Imagination

Drape, float, or create with play silks– these versatile pieces of colorful fabric are a must-have for any Figgy setup. They can become capes for superheroes, water for a make-believe ocean, or even a cozy tent when draped over the a play couch. The possibilities are endless, and they perfectly complement the open-ended play. Plus, they're light, easy to store, and ignite endless imaginative scenarios. We love the play silks from Sarah's Silks.

2. Pikler Triangle: Climb and Explore

Bring a piklar triangle to your play area and watch as your little climbers explore new heights safely. This wooden climbing structure pairs wonderfully with play couches, offering a dynamic playground for climbing, sliding, and imaginative play. It's not just fun; it's also fantastic for developing gross motor skills and encouraging physical activity. Check out Lily + River's collection of piklars and add-ons.

3. Stepping Stones: A Path to Balance and Coordination

Create a landscape of adventure with Stepping Stones scattered around your play couch. These balance platforms can transform your play area into a challenging obstacle course, a mystical path through a lava-filled landscape, or stepping stones across a bubbling brook. They're great for promoting balance, coordination, and imaginative play. We recommend these!

4. A Second Play Couch: Double the Fun

Why stop at one when you can have double the fun? Adding a second play couch opens up a whole new world of configurations and possibilities. Build grander forts, taller towers, or even a soft, safe battleground for those playful pillow fights. If you have Figgy play couches, you can connect them together!

5. Wedge or Rockers: Rock and Roll Play

Add a dynamic element to your play couch universe with a wedge or rockers. These accessories introduce movement and physical play, perfect for little ones who love to climb, rock, and roll. Use them as a slide, a boat in a stormy sea, or a mountain peak to conquer. They're not just fun; they also help develop balance and muscle coordination. We are partial to the Figgy Biggy Wedge and Half-Moons!

6. Felt Characters: Storytime Stars

Bring stories to life with a set of felt characters. These soft, tactile toys can stick right onto the microsuede surfaces of your Figgy or Nugget (or other play couch!), turning it into a backdrop for epic tales and adventures. Whether it's a fairy tale forest, a bustling city, or an underwater world, felt characters add depth and detail to your child's imaginative play. We love Rally Felt Co.
