I received a blue Lil Sofa Sleeper from Pkolino so I could try it and share my thoughts on it.
P’kolino, a Florida-based company which started in 2004, was founded by 2 dads with a passion to improve play at home. They offer fun toys and furnishings, art supplies, decor, etc for children of all ages. You can sneak a peek at their products on the website’s gallery. Of the products displayed in the gallery, I received the P’kolino Lil Sofa Sleeper for review.
The P’kolino Lil Sofa Sleeper is a cozy sofa with fold-out lounge. If you have little ones that love to read, this is a perfect sofa for them! They can sit on it while reading or fold it out so they can lay on it to relax or maybe read with mom and dad. It uses a stain-resistant fabric and has book pockets on the side. It currently retails for $110.00 on the site and is available in blue, green, orange, and red. It’s great for letting the kids sit back and relax on them, as it gives you enough space to then curl up on your sofa and watch the tv on something like this gloss tv unit.
My little one Sam has loved sitting and lounging on this sofa the moment I took it out of its box. I’m not sure if it’s evident in the photos I took here but the fabric used is very smooth so I guess Sam is comfortable with the feel of the fabric against his skin when he sits on it. There was even a time that he fell asleep in it as you can see in the photo below. He fell asleep after I read him a book.
But don’t be deceived by its smoothness. The sides are actually very sturdy. So sturdy that Sam and his friend Kris Paul would sometimes step on it when they want to reach for something on the table beside it. I expected that the side would bend because of their weight but surprisingly, it didn’t.
Here’s a photo of Sam lounging on the sofa while watching some TV.
