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

- 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.
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!
