Welcome to Rockabye River

Here at Rockabye River, we are driven by the belief that children’s imaginations should be nurtured and encouraged to develop through play and exploration. The children’s side to our waterproof, reversible Rockabye River baby playmat has been designed by an Australian children’s book illustrator, creating vibrant, hand-drawn watercolour illustrations for all of the family to enjoy. We have moved beyond repetitive, geometric stamps, and believe that a baby playmat should include all the beauty you would expect from a designer rug or a piece of art. Our reversible, super soft baby playmats feature your choice of a gorgeous, intricately designed rug-like family side, or, through our collaboration with sisters Leah and Sherri Cummins (Bunya Designs & Mayi Bunyanna) you can now take home a fantastic Indigenous art design. Learn about the meanings and representations of Aboriginal art, guided by a featured artist’s description of each unique creation.

Waterproof Mats That Look Like Rugs

Unlike carpets or rugs, our waterproof playmats do not attract dust, pet hair and dirt. They can be easily wiped down and disinfected, ensuring a clean play area for your baby. This is especially crucial for babies with allergies or sensitive skin. Our TPU foam play mats will never trap dust and pet hair. Choose a luxe padded play mat for easy cleaning.

Behind the Art of our Indigenous Designs

We are home to the most gorgeous Aboriginal play mats on the market. That’s because we have collaborated with the amazing Indigenous artists, Leah and Sherri Cummins of Bunya Designs and Mayi Bunyanna. Not just a beautiful work of art, our Indigenous play mats share a story of family and Country. Teach your baby about Australian art, history and culture during tummy time, on one of our collaborative Aboriginal baby play mat collections.   

Acknowledgement of Country

Rockabye River acknowledges the Traditional Custodians of the land in which we work on, being the Turrbal and Jagera peoples. We acknowledge the Traditional Custodians of Country throughout Australia and their connections to land, sea and community. We pay our respect to their Elders past, present and emerging, and extend that respect to all Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples today.
