I want to buy one of those little fold out sofas but I really don't want one with Dora or Spiderman or Thomas etc. Has anyone see any plain and 'tasteful' ones?

Try clark rubber.
Had a flyer just recently and they were advertising red ones i think.
But looked like they had other colours as well.

The current Kmart catelogue for kids week has Pirate, Fairy and...something else - the fairy on is pink and the pirate one is light blue.

Have heard the clarke rubber ones last better than the licensed ones too.
Also IMO try and find ones that have a thicker material rather than just T-shirt style material. Ours is from K-mart and has 'the wheels on the bus' written all over it but is a great fabric: Levi even threw up all over it last week and it has survived!

Yes, Kmart have Princess, Pirate and Jungle this week - they look great!

Thanks Heaps! You can always rely on EB to know where to get something - that has saved me lots of running around. Now I just need to convince myself I must wait until tomorrow to go to Clark Rubber when I am heading down that way, and NOT waste petrol and make an extra trip right now

I wanted to get our boys a flipout sofa but they are all so bloody ugly I dont like the licenced prints but couldnt find one in some kind of tasteful fabric either.
I didnt want such a monstrosity sitting in my lounge room, so I went to Ikea and bought a mini Poang chair which they both love. It also gets tipped over and turned into all sorts of wonderful things (my 3yo and his crazy imagination ).. Looks heaps better than a flipout sofa but you cant lie down in/on it.
