The Rudie Nudie playmats have a soft cotton top layer [or polyester for our Jumbo size], with a small padded layer in the middle and waterproof bottom layer. It allows for liquid to soak into the playmats [rather than forming a puddle on top], but it won’t seep through to your floor.
We have three sizes of playmats - our regular is 90x90cm, large is 130x130cm and Jumbo is 2x2m. They’re all waterproof, so all stop the mess and each one has slightly different uses:
The playmats are great for toilet training - pop it under the potty or sit it on the couch as they always have accidents while watching TV (they get distracted and forget to go to the toilet!).
At night time, you can also put them on top of the fitted sheet so when they have an accident you peel off the playmat rather than having to change the whole bed.
Sensory/messy play can be as simple as some cups and a saucepan filled with water. We do have a great blog post on this which you can read more here.
Yes! They’re perfect as a beach mat, as they’ll protect bottoms from damp sand, but also the sand falls right off the back of the playmat, so you don’t have to take the whole beach home with you!
The underside of the playmats is a black fabric, so whilst they are waterproof either way, you won’t have your pretty Rudie Nudie design on top. Some people like to do some messy play with the black side facing up, to avoid staining the other side.
The Jumbo comes as 39 x 30 x 15cm originally but add quite a bit once that’s roughly folded. The drawstring backpack is big enough to fit the Jumbo in with a rough fold.
We recommend a cold wash and hanging out to dry, as regular warm/hot washes and tumble drying can deteriorate the waterproof lining.
We also recommend an extra spin cycle for our Jumbo playmats. Being absorbent, the playmats can hold quite a bit of water, but the extra spin will help reduce the dripping while drying, and help them to dry quicker.
We also recommend hanging out to dry as soon as you have used the playmat, as like anything, mould can form if it sits damp for a while, especially with the waterproof layer. If you can’t wash it straight after using, hang it up to dry until it can be washed.
Whilst our playmats tend to wash up very well most of the time, they can still stain as the top layer is cotton. Even certain brands of washable paints can stain clothes and our playmats. Just remember though that the Rudie Nudie Playmats are built to help save the mess, so it’s better that the playmat is stained, rather than your lovely carpet!
We don’t recommend the dryer sorry as it can cause the waterproof lining to deteriorate. They do dry very quickly hanging up though!
They should be fine in all sizes of machines - they weigh approximately 1.6kg without the drawstring bag, and a 7kg washing machine can hold 7kg of dry washing.
We have three flat rate options within Australia, so whether you are ordering 1 or 10 playmats, the shipping is the same:
Australia Post Standard $9.95
Australia Post Express $14.95
*Please note that Aramex won’t show up if they don’t deliver to your area. If you are sending to a PO Box or Parcel Locker, you will need to select either option from Australia Post, as Aramex doesn't ship to PO Boxes.
Yes we do ship to most countries and you can see pricing options here.
Please email us at firstname.lastname@example.org and we will do our best to help or find alternative shipping arrangements for you to explore. We also recommend checking the Aramex Shop and Ship service, as they can be more competitive with pricing than our website. You simply place an order on our website, but use the local Australian address that Aramex provides, and they arrange delivery to your door.
Please note that any customs/taxes that your country charges you, are out of our control. We ask that you become aware of what the fees are in your country, to avoid any surprises.
We only have our UAE distributor Tots UAE currently, otherwise we send direct to customers around the world.
Yes you can! At checkout, you can select the gift wrap option for $3.95. We will wrap your playmat [except for Jumbo playmats as they’re too big to wrap], and there is a place for you to include a personalised message, which we will include in a gift card. If you leave the card message blank, we will just send you a blank gift card for you to fill in. We never include invoices in any of our orders [saving trees!], so the recipient won’t know how generous you actually are!
If you change your mind about your playmat order, please notify us within 7 days of receiving it. Returns can be sent at your own cost to:
Rudie Nudie Designs
PO Box 101
Kingsville VIC 3012
Please keep your tracking details as proof of return. We will provide a refund [minus your original shipping fee] if the playmat is unused, folded the same way that it came in the original undamaged packaging.
If the playmat is returned in original condition, then we can issue an exchange for another design when it's returned. Once your playmat is received, we will also send you an invoice for Shipping via Australia Post for $9.95 (for domestic deliveries) and if you’ve decided to exchange for a larger size, we can invoice you for the difference.
Whilst it is rare, occasionally we do see the odd minor fault in our playmats. Please notify us immediately if this happens at email@example.com. Please include pictures and an explanation of the fault. We offer 12 months cover for any faults.
Please note that any damage due to wear and tear such as loose or snagged stitching, pilling, colour run from other items in the wash or mould, will not be covered.
If you follow the correct care instructions, the playmats will remain waterproof for years. Hot washes and tumble drying can cause the waterproof layer to deteriorate. We guarantee the waterproof layer for 6 months.
Unfortunately not. Our system, just like other online retailers, doesn’t allow this.
Yes we can, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org and we can organise one for you.
