    Default Wanted, childs sofa

    Really hoping someone will be able to help me with this. I want to buy a small sofa for my 17 month old and for the mindees to use too. We go to toddlers group and they have them there but they were given them so dont know where they come from. My daughter loves it and always sits in them but I cant find any I have found inflatable ones, which I dont want, and really expensive ones, but the sort Im after are the small ones made from foam with a zip up material cover, usually with numbers or Alphabet on. Iv looked on ebay, mothercare, kiddicare, amazon, and other sites, but no luck

    Anyone got any ideas where I can get them it would be greatly apreciated, thankyou xxx

    mama2three, the sort Im looking for tho is the really small ones made of foam. My little girl doesnt seem to like the other sofas for some reason, but she loves the one at playgroup. There are some lovely ones on ebay, Im just about to go have another look, see if anything new has come on on there

    Thank you for that! I didn't know I was in the market for a sofa!

    But looking at these they are fab and the 4 little boys I have will love it. I have a Tiger floor rug which is big and squishy and they love sitting on that with their books.

    They are also at a stage now that they coming out of travel cots to sleep now so this will be ideal.

    Such a good price too

    I would probably get one myself too if they were a bit more neutral. I hate how everything has to be boys or girls!

    I do agree. I have gone for the Cars one as I have boys and girls will be fine with it as well. The pink is over the top though! Maybe they should do one with Pooh Bear or in Green or something.

    On this note have you heard that Hamleys are taking out their Girls and Boys floors and all the Pink? They are just having a toy area for all. Good for them I say.

    Thankyou all for all the links, they're great I have found a couple that I like, cant believe I spent so long looking and you guys found them so easy, how dumb do I feel the inflatable ones look really great, but they do puncture, my friend had one and it punctured, plus you have to keep blowing them up, so not so keen to get one of those.

    jellytots, I really like the two links you put up, cant believe I couldnt find them when I was looking will probably go for the cheaper one as its only a small sofa Im after, though the other one does look lovely and comfy

    Again, thanks for all your help and ideas, my little ones will be most greatful
