Bonjour lecteurs! As a maman, I am always on the lookout for the best products for my Baba. Now that he is two we tried so many items. Some were a hit and others a big disappointment. We shared before with you our baby essentials. But the product we are about to present you today should really be added to this list! We discovered this cute brand at Bubble London and today, our JayceeBaby Perfectly Padded Playmat Review will show you something that you can use with le bébé and keep when they grow up! Plus, we teamed up with this fabulous brand as one of our lucky readers will be in to win 1 JayceeBaby Perfectly Padded Playmat worth £65! I say it is the best way to finish the weekend! But see now why we love this item so much!
JayceeBaby Perfectly Padded Playmat – The Brand’s Story
We are proud to feature JayceeBaby today on the blog. The label and the so cool playmat was created by Sayjel and her sister Sonal. So yet again, the Frenchie Mummy Blog is supporting an independent business but not only!
Because it all started when Sayjel became a maman! Like moi, she wants the best at all times for her little one. So when her boy was born, she did everything to keep him safe and secure in every way possible. You know the feeling, right?
When it came to buying a baby playmat, however, she did not come across with THE ONE. As she explained on her website, ‘the small ones were simply that – too small. Large ones weren’t soft enough’.
We used to have a playmat when Baba was very little and reading this, I actually agree with Sayjel. I remember mon bébé playing on this tiny little mat and yet even if he liked it at the time, I now realise that it was very thin. Maybe not even padded enough for his protection?
So Jayjel decided to combine forces with her sister and together they created a soft and safe, yet stimulating play environment for babies and toddlers.
The JayceeBaby Perfectly Padded Playmat was born!
JayceeBaby Perfectly Padded Playmat Review – Key Features
- Generously padded – 5cm thick indeed!
- Its large 100 x 150cm surface is not your average playmat
- stylishly designed, it features some great colours that would fit perfectly in any nursery!
- double-sided so that you don’t get bored
- it also comes with a detachable plastic sheet for feeding and messy play, or simply for protecting it if like me, you are a bit of a control freak (nothing wrong with that!)
JayceeBaby Perfectly Padded Playmat Review – Our first impressions
I must admit that I was really surprised when by its size when we received it. I have bien sûr seen it before but it looked so luxurious.
Gorgeous actually compared to the one we used to have when Baba was little.
Mon petit monstre was so happy, jumping around when we got to take it off its packaging. Baba was fast to make the most of the toddler’s side with the track. All the cars he possesses were out and he got playing. La Frenchie Maman was not to complain… Quietly, she went to her office and get going with her blog.
A Baba happy playing and Maman being able to work while she knows that her little one is safe and having fun? A great start!
The Baby Side
Even if we mainly used the toddler’s part of this product, let’s show you how you can use it early on with a bébé.
With a softer surface to help with tummy time and other acrobatics that only babies know how to do, there are beaucoup de interactive elements across the mat. We love the choice of colourful animals.
Les couleurs are soft and blend so well together. Oui! I might seem a bit superficial but the look counts! It would be idéal in any nursery and we love the large selection of activities that encourage speech and imaginative play. Some crinkly material, sounds, textures and even a large mirror with a cover on it for extra play. It’s pretty much all there!
Plus the generous padding means it is really comfy and secure: la place parfaite to relax. I feel like having a snooze too! Pourquoi pas? It’s very tiring to be a maman 🙂
But it’s not only all about les couleurs! The black and white patterns on the edges engage learners from a young age so your little one can enjoy it at an early stage!
And because having a baby means a lot of items over time (that your little ones use a couple of times and then it literally ends up cluttering your living space!), we like even more the JayceeBaby Perfectly Padded Playmat! Because it grows with your kids!
The Toddler Side
With its firmer surface, it is parfait to crawl, walk and play with cars or read books!
So comfy, we used it in the living-room for Baba to play and do whatever he likes the most.
But it also helps him learn as he can discover new objects and names. Baba is a lazy boy and yet to talk much. He has not screamed ‘Ice Cream Van’ so far but I like the possibilities of games that this side proposes: memory game, practising colours and so much more!
Plus this little fancy world help mon enfant to create stories and engage in imaginative play. You might just see Baba playing with his car on the track from the mat, but there was much more than this! No sound for you on the blog I am afraid but I can tell you there were some fab stories and fairytales taking place while my toddler played on this item!
JayceeBaby Perfectly Padded Playmat Review – What else?
The playmat also comes with a detachable plastic cover. Pop it on and you can use it for messy play. We have not used it this way. My carpet is very beige and I am too worried that something will happen to it so I have not been brave enough to do it yet. However, we will definitely take it out in the garden for some fun when it is warmer.
The playmat is handy too if your little one is a gourmet like my Baba and enjoys (a lot of!) food in his day! No worries about getting it dirty with the cover.
JayceeBaby Perfectly Padded Playmat Review – Le verdict
We absolutely love our JayceeBaby Perfectly Padded Playmat. It is so luxurious and we love its versatile use. Plus its large surface allows so much room for playing and relaxing both at home and outside. Created for both babies and toddlers, the mat can be used for so many years too so it’s a great investment.
The extra padding is parfait to protect little heads and teeth from knocks when engaging in tummy time, and still engage your little ones once they are toddlers. I love the fact that it encourages speech by naming objects! Plus it’s a cool mat to decorate the room when not in use!
Another great feature that Frenchie Mummy likes? The water-resistant fabric that is easy to clean so that I know we will keep it neat for a long time.
So much care was put into this playmat! Pas de surprise as a maman created it! So Sayjel knew very well what mummies are after for their little ones: the best bien sûr!
This product might seem a bit of an investment as it retails at £65 but I think it is really worth it as you can use it for so long and in so many ways! No need to buy tons of items that your little one will only use sometimes. Get this and you are covered for a couple of years! Plus it is too pretty to be ignored!

Fab prize, we have our 1st child due this September so this would be perfect for our little one! X
Looks fab for development.
I think its just perfect for a baby or toddler to play on, its decorative and designed to occupy the child and also easy to keep clean and hygenic.
Its a dream for any parent and child – fun and LEARNING – always a winner
Looks great for both indoor and out! Not many play mats are padded!
Looks fun and practical too!
This is definitely the best play mat I’ve seen, the padding would be such a panic saver when my baby throws herself backwards as well as helping to keep her entertained.
It looks great. We have hard floors so would be perfect for when I’ve got my nieces & nephews round
Its very practical tht it grows with your child. A lot of mats are for small babies and are wipe clean only. Its great that this has a detachable cover.
looks fab and great fun
Love that the mat is well padded and easy to clean. It’s a brilliant size and portable too!
Looks great fun and lovely and soft (very deep!) – perfect for little ones who want to play
Great looking playmat.

It certainly looks fun and importantly it looks safe – love the cushioning and the design
How great is this mat? Lasts long through baby stage and toddler stage. Looks like a lot of thought was put into the design. Looks fab x
I love it. I have solid floors and even with thick carpet I worry about bumped heads so a lovely, large padded playmate would be perfect for us.
We love playmats. Great for getting on the floor with baby yourself too.
That would be lovely to lay the baby on when they arrive. It’s a lovely size as well x
This would be perfect for my childminding children.
love the fact it is padded and looks quite well-cushioned, great design
With so many items being suitable for few months only, it is nice to see a mat, that can be used from baby to toddler. Used inside and in the garden.
Would love this for our little one!
It looks gorgeous and very well padded…super soft and wipeable – which is a must 😉
Looks great! My youngest would love it
Looks really good quality, comfortable and entertaining
I love the fact it encourages imaginative play
Looks wonderful and soft for babies!
Looks wonderful and soft for little ones 🙂
A padded playmat what a great idea
Love it! it looks very comfortable
ideal i would say!
It’s a lovely playmat, bigger than I thought it would be. I don’t have any children but would love to win this prize to donate to charity, to go to Romania.
It looks like it has been designed by someone who has children and knows what works and what doesn’t
Bright and Fun, they are visually great…..
it looks great! my nephew would love it
i love this! it’s great that it’s waterproof and well padded so no injuries!

Looks fabulous. Would love to win for my granddaughter.
Seems like a quality product.
What a fantastic product, padded, bright design that grows with the child, so practical, for messy, and clean times.
Looks like a great playmat- practical and lots of fun. Love the bright colours and the extra thick padding is great as most mats are very thin but this mat would be great on wooden floors.
Love it, great colours and well padded
looks like a great playmat!
A lovely play mat which would be so useful, especially as it’s reversible, suitable for both babies and toddlers and therefore extending the number of years it would be in use. The colours are attractive and the extra thickness will make it so much more comfortable.
I love this item! with a clumsy 18 month old this would be perfect 🙂 I love the sea theme
looks fantastic and especially great for outdoors for us as our daughter hates the feel of the grass for some reason, she could play quite happily on this for ages
I think its lovely the colours are so engaging for a child
It looks like something that could give me a break, the baby could easily amuse itself with this so I could enjoy my cuppa for a moment or two.
The only thing that I struggle with is the price, I couldn’t justify the price for using it for a short length of time
Amazing mats my granddaughter would love one.
This would be amazing for little 1
this would be awesome for my little one x
I like the fact that it’s multi-sensory and machine washable.
such a great idea, well designed
I really like the sound of it, especially the different textures and prints to engage baby.
Really lovely but quite pricy although I suspect that it would become a family heirloom so could prove value for money
Provides great entertainment for baby/ child.
Looks a quality mat, love the colours
Love the look of this, so often playmats aren’t padded enough!
I agree. The one we had when Baba was little was so ridiculous when I think about it. But this one is so fab
Great designs! Love the colours.
I’d love to win this mat for a new little grand-child. It’s so practical, comfortable and would be in use every day!
I love that it’s soft and safe, yet a stimulating play environment for babies and toddlers.
perfectley ideal xx
I love this, the two sides are great and I love that it’s padded so would be great on hard floors
Looks amazing for babies development ?
It looks awesome. colourful and padded – ideal when learning to sit up and falling over
When I visit this blog each day to take part in the competition and read more details of the prize I am even more convinced that it is the best play mat for my new grand-child and will save many bumps and tumbles when learning to roll over and sit.
Love the colours, great being able to use both sids

Looks amazing and a great size too, lots that it grows with your child too – one side for babies and one for fun and learning as they grow
l think it is fabulous . . . .l wish it had been available when my children were small
Looks like fun and also educational!
I love that its so thick! We have wooden floors so perfect for the initial wobbly sitting stage
I think it’s an innovative and original idea x
The more I have learnt about this mat the more useful I think it would be – with wood flooring it with give comfort and being reversible even older children will use it – useful too in a reading corner or den.
I hope I am lucky enough to win this
Such a gorgeous playmat, I would love to win this
Love the colours on this, it looks great quality too

this looks lovely, its bright and cheery and well padded, i would love to win this for my new granddaughter who is due soon
This is such a great mat! Love that it’s made with such detail too
The mat looks really comfy as some look like they wouldn’t give any cushioning to the child. It’s the comfort i would like for our upcoming little one.
This looks fantastic! I love the generous size and the fact that it’s 5cm thick as I’m very safety conscious when it comes to my little one.

Lovely playmat, perfect for indoors and outdoors use for small baby upwards
I love it is thicker than your usual playmat and would be fab for my son
Awesome idea. Big enough for the little one and I’m sure for busy parents would double up as a downstairs changing mat.

I love it. I think it’s great 🙂
I love this its very versatile and great for development

I love it. It’s perfect to help develop little ones skills
Looks very good quality and like the idea that is has both a baby and a toddler side.
