Playand occupies as little as 40cm x 75cm when the pieces are stacked! But we usually do not store them away because it is used ALL the time!
There are no Velcro or Magnets in our Playand sofa pieces for now. We believe in the limitless creativity and imagination of our children (and adults). With no Velcro or Magnets, you can arrange the modular pieces in any way you wish!
However, we are in the midst of incorporating Magnets into our covers so that you can have the best of both worlds! Coming soon, stay tuned!

Playand is designed to be used from 0m+ and up. We know that children likes to build complex and creative structures during play, so parental supervision and help are compulsory at all times during play/use for younger children below the age of 3 years old, especially if any form of climbing or tall structures are involved. Parental supervision is still highly encouraged during play for children above 3 years old, for guidance on safe play. Check out our What Is Playand page to see more details on the age usage!
Our Playand sofa is vacuumed packed and wrapped in a roll during production to save space and costs during shipping from our overseas factory to Singapore. As such, the foam needs a minimum 2 weeks period of decompression before reverting back to its original shape. In fact, playing with it often helps the foam regain back its shape!
The covers may also appear crumpled due to this compression. However, the wrinkles will fade away with repeated use and wash. In fact, playing with it often helps the covers straighten up! As a last resort, if the wrinkles are still visible, the covers can be ironed on low heat (switch to delicate fabric mode).
Playand covers are made from durable Polyester Suede covers which can be removed for washing. They are meant to be tight fitting, to ensure that there will be no tripping or choking hazards for children during play. You can purchase our Waterproof Inner Lining here to protect your foam pieces from big spills. (we understand it is perfectly normal to have spills and splatters with kids!)
For The Polyester Suede Covers
Playand is clad in removable and washable polyester suede that can be washed in washing machine and dried in a dryer (on cold run and delicate modes). For extra precaution, you can also vacuum the surface of the covers often to prevent dust accumulation.
For The Foam Pieces
For the foam pieces, do not pick at the foam or pluck at the foam to prevent damage. Do not put them under direct sunlight or heat. If the foam is soiled, spot clean with a wet cloth to absorb moisture and leave it in a cool place to air dry.
You can also purchase a separate Waterproof Inner Lining to protect the foam pieces here.
Yes, it is absolutely normal! Due to natural oxidation, or exposure to some heat during manufacturing, the foam pieces may present some slight yellowish tinge. This oxidation process is a natural process for Polyurethane foam. However, this does not render the foam pieces unsafe for use or change the foam density. To slow down the oxidation process, it is encouraged that you do not expose the foam pieces to direct heat or sunlight.
