Play Mat Style Generator AR FilterColour: Dark Brown, wheat & ivory.

Australia’s award-winning soft foam padded play mats are the best, safest, eco friendly, waterproof play mats available for your baby. Perfect as a nursery rug and as a tummy time play mat.

An incredibly plush, safe & durable play mat for the whole family to enjoy for years. As we endeavour to bring the finest quality, skill and artistry to every play mat we offer, rest assured that we have meticulously designed every aspect of this play mat to ensure you get the best in the market.

Our play mats can’t be beaten.

Inspired by traditional Persian designs, the Paloma Play Mat is an extraordinary neutral to ground any room in your home. For a remarkable backdrop, tri-colour patterns of dark brown, wheat and ivory create a beautiful gradient, crafting a soothingly distressed effect that adds both warmth and character.

Subtle and vivid at once, it’s a solid foundation for any colour palette you vision. The tonal neutral variations and the Persian motif dial up visual interest. The more you look at it, the more magnificent it gets.

And when we say “safe play without compromise” we mean it! Compromising goes both ways. So, we have crafted a stylish side that respects parents, and when you flip the play (!!) mat over, you will treasure a fun, minimal and playful map for the whole family to enjoy. It is called The Ocean Road and it marks the inaugural occasion where I allowed my 3-year-old to actively shape the whimsical design. I inquired about his preferences, and together, we pored over the Pantone book, with him even selecting the colours he desired. I found it delightful to have a child's input in determining the playful appearance of the fun side.

Despite a few non-negotiables, such as maintaining a minimalist design to encourage imaginative play, providing ample land space for children to construct their desired environments, and including elements like roads, water, and train tracks, I was committed to preserving an open area. I truly believe that leaving some space unadorned fosters creativity. When every detail, like trees and houses, is illustrated on the play mat, it leaves little room for the imagination to roam free.

I must confess, allowing my three-year-old to contribute to the decisions was quite daunting for me. I likely would have made different choices, so listening to him and accepting his preferences added an unexpectedly magical dimension to the entire process.  Observing his imagination take flight, witnessing his thought process unfold, the joyous smiles, meticulous planning, and hours of sheer delight have rendered this experience truly enchanting. May your little loves encounter a similar magical journey on this play mat. 

 We hope you love it as much as we do.

Please note actual colours may vary. It’s important to note that they may look different on a real product than what you see on your computer monitor. This is because every computer monitor has a different capability to display colours and that everyone sees these colours differently. We try to edit our photos to show the products as life-like as possible, also adding a large variety of photos for each product.

Every Rugabub Play Mat undergoes manual printing, resulting in a unique repeat pattern for each mat. Therefore, if you buy multiple play mats, they are unlikely to match perfectly. Nonetheless, they still complement each other beautifully when placed side by side.

We received ours a day after we ordered

Rugabub Play Mats make playtime cleanup a breeze, so you can focus on making memories.


Thankyou so much for the excellent transaction experience in purchasing my Paloma Rug. I ordered the rug on a Sunday afternoon and it arrived via courier on following Tuesday morning that week. To say I was stoked and excited was an understatement considering I live in a rural area and “express post” takes approx 10-14 business days.
