Our play mats can’t be beaten.

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.

The best low tox playmat

I absolutely love our playmat! It's not only beautiful and soft enough for my 7 month old, but also puts my mind at ease knowing it's the best low tox mat. I would love if rugabub could make a bigger size though!

Great play mat!

We love our new play mat. I love the muted tones and the double sided fun. It looks nice in the house while still being practical and enjoyable for play. The subtle train tracks that compliment the road on the little explorer side will bring many imaginative play times as my little one gets older I’m sure. Customer service was amazing when I had a query about postage or the product itself and both times was very quick to receive a response. Would definitely purchase again and recommend to other mums 😊


What a perfect play mat. I didn’t realize when I purchased it that the design is weaved rug. It is stunning and so soft. The whole family is obsessed with it.


I'm always on the lookout for products that not only entertain my child but also contribute positively to their growth and development. Rugabub Play Mats have proven to be an absolute game-changer in our household. It provides a safe and comfortable space for my little one to explore and play. Its soft and cushioned surface cushions falls and tumbles, granting me peace of mind during those early crawling and walking stages.

So Happy

I went to the One Fine Baby Expo especially to see Ruga a bub. They have been on my list for a while. I was really surprised to see that they actually do look as good as they do in the photos on the website. I am so happy with my purchase. We all absolutely love how soft and squishy it is, how easy it is to clean and how gorgeous it looks on my wooden floors. The colours are so beautiful.
