All cushions are made from Certi-Pur-US certified foam with antimicrobial treatment, with inner material foam covers. The outside fabric covers are removable and washable. Our ARKis are manufactured with tab-less childproof zips making them extra kid-safe.

*Waterproof internal foam covers are sold separately if you are concerned about those extra spilly Arki Tribe types

A Little Note on our Big Boxes…

At ARKi we have not compromised on quality, not one little bit! Every ARKi piece is made with thick Certi-Pur-US certified foam and is non-compressed, thus maintaining the integrity of the foam cell structure and providing better comfort & support plus sturdier builds! It also means our covers fit beautifully and remain wrinkle-free!

On the flip side, better quality = larger boxes ie. 3 very large ones in fact! To help all our tribe members we have subsidised shipping as much as we can but we do need to pass on shipping costs to keep our business viable. The shipping rates are as follows - NSW/VIC/QLD/SA/ACT: $75 Capital Cities / $95 Outer Metro / $150 Regional & Remote. For other locations pls check our shipping guide here. We might be biased but we think it’s worth it for the many many years & many many hours of fun ARKi play for your little ARKi-types!

So much joy!

We used your layby for Christmas and purchased a base camp ‘The Ruler’ for the kids. They are 4yrs and 1yr.

I’ve lost count of the builds we have done. It is used multiple times a day. They absolutely love it and our guests over the holiday period have loved it as well. Most of the adults lounging on it when set up as a couch 😂

My only suggestion would be Velcro on the arch pieces as well so they will hold together as a circle

Thank you for such a brilliant, quality product that is going to bring so much joy and imagination to our home!



The kids LOVE IT!!!

The kids are finally no longer ripping the cushions off the sofas 🥳🥳
This is a great quality play sofa which my kids LOVE and keeps them entertained for ages! Awesome quality and sturdy. I did get the liners as well which were a bit of an effort to put on but if it's going to ensure it survives my kids -it's worth it!

The most amazing addition to our playroom!

Both my soon to be 1 and 4 year old adore this couch. It is so versatile and we’ve built so many things in the short month we’ve owned them! I have a pet peeve with sagging sofas and wrinkled fabric and the Arki is so firm that despite jumps and climbs it maintains it’s shape. It also looks amazing in our play space, we will be adding the Lounger very soon!


I have to admit I was tempted to shop around the avaliable play couches but when it came down to making a decison the value of getting 10 pieces in the base camp and the option for waterproof liners was too hard to ignore. And on arrival this product did not dissapoint with its genetous size, variety of shapes and removable washable covers. Freight to WA was a bit of a shock but that was the same across all companies unfortunately anyways. So glad we went with Arki!
