At Grace & Maggie, we are passionate about creating a play space that’s not only safe and aesthetically pleasing, but one that is practical for newborns and beyond.

Based in Victoria, our play mats have been designed by parents with both the child and caregiver in mind. We set out to create double-sided play mats that provide a fun whimsical design on one side and a stylish area rug like look on the reverse.

Grace & Maggie’s Baby Driver range of play mats feature a minimal track design for play without the sensory overload or a mash of primary colours. Children can create endless small world possibilities, enhancing their symbolic play and building on their early literacy skills by using open-ended toys and their past experiences – they’re only limited by their imagination!


The colour palette is bold enough to create interest whilst being neutral enough to look great in any space. Our flagship Forrest range boasts a woodland theme while maintaining a minimal monochrome colour pallet. This design provides a newborn baby with the best form of visual stimulation during those early months.

Our play mats are available in three generous sizes, small (140cm x 100cm), round (140cm diameter) and large (200cm x 140cm). Our range has an option for every room setting and indoor environment whether it’s small group play or circle time. They are water-resistant and easy to clean which is very convenient in early childhood, especially for messy play activities like sensory play.

Our multi-use play mats provide the perfect base for developing sensory motor skills and are a tummy time essential! For infants, tummy time is the most effective way to strengthen neck and shoulder muscles; even for newborns, it is recommended that tummy time begins with a few minutes initially, gradually increasing over the first three months. Our play mats’ soft waterproof memory foam core provides the perfect protective barrier between baby and hard flooring. The 1.5cm thickness provides a clean and safe surface for babies learning to crawl and softens their tumbles as they attempt to take their first steps. It’s easy to see why tens of thousands of Aussie homes, medical and childcare facilities not only love but recommend our products!

We want to ensure our customers get the most out of their play mat purchase and therefore stock a carefully curated range of items that perfectly complement our play mats. Candylab Cars, for example, are the perfect addition to our Baby Driver design providing an added depth of play value for all ages. We also recently welcomed The Play Card Co to our shelves with their deck of cards, each one containing a simple, yet fun activity designed specifically for your child’s developmental stage, proving extremely popular. Each of The Play Card Co’s cards display everyday household items that are accessible or on hand. Tried and tested, these are a must have for parents and educators alike.

Another product we are proud to stock is The Totli Box; a Montessori-inspired, three-sided box providing unlimited learning through play opportunities. From posting and sorting, to imaginative play, this item was designed for our children by child development experts themselves.

Lastly, our play mats have been extensively tested to ensure they surpass International Toy Safety Standards. As parents, we want to ensure our children are free from toxic chemicals that can negatively affect their health which is why our play mats are free of PVC, BPA and VOC’s. We pride ourselves on our commitment to help pave a sustainable path for our children and our planet by providing eco-friendly products that are biodegradable.

When you purchase from Grace & Maggie, you can rest assured that you are buying a product that is safe for your child, safe for their environment and safe for their future.
