Hello there! I’m Lacey, the founder of Rambler. The Rambler mat was inspired by my wiggly 5-month-old who loved tangling himself up in blankets on the floor. After unrolling him countless times, the idea for a portable mat that would keep its shape began to form. Our first prototype was made with a flexible hoop and a simple fabric cover. The result was a soft mat for my wiggly (and growing) boy to play on that laid completely flat.
We used it constantly - around the house, in the backyard, at the beach, even in hotel rooms. It didn’t stop there - it grew with us from the newborn stage into the toddler days and we found ourselves using it even without the kids! We loved it and wanted to share it with others.
In early 2018 Rambler officially came to life. We are a small, but mighty team effort, with my brother Nick partnering in product development and my college roommate Megan in marketing support. We are excited and proud to provide a unique product and a place to rest your busy life.
RAMBLE (n.): a walk for pleasure, mostly without a route or destination in mind.
For the first two years of our marriage, my husband and I had the amazing opportunity to live in London. One of our favorite things to do on the weekends was “ramble” in the countryside, as the English call it. We loved taking an easy train ride from the city into the country to enjoy wide open spaces, fresh air, and spectacular scenery. It was a time to slow down, connect and just enjoy life. We believe that maintaining this mindset for adults and kids alike is so important in today's world. Our hope is for your Rambler to be more than a product, but an inviting place to rest in your busy life. Whether drawing you outdoors or sharing a moment with your child, we hope it becomes a place to make a memory.
