Tuff Tray

$74.90 AUD
95 reviews

We are so thrilled to have our hands on these awesome play trays that are perfect for an invitation to play and learn. 

These large, shallow trays allow you to set up paints, messy play, small world play or sensory play whilst keeping any mess inside the shallow edges of the tray. The size of the tray allows multiple kids to play and it can be set up inside or outside. 

For babies, you can actually pop them on the tray with a sensory set-up so that the play is contained within the tray. 

You can add a stand (sold separately and sadly we don't stock these stands - see further comment below) to allow kids to stand around the tray and play which is brilliant for outdoor water play. 

Add sensory cotton sand, water beads, CollectA animals, playdough, and more to your tray to invite your child to play and learn. 

They are GREAT for early childhood learning, homeschooling and pre-schools. 

We love these trays for sensory play, small world play, and messy play and we hope you will too! 

Product Info:

* Items on the tray are not included, pictures are just examples of use only

  • Dimensions: 96cm x 96cm x 7.5cm
  • Depth of tray 4.5cm
  • Made from: a durable plastic
  • Colour: Black only

Please Note:

* Some of the trays arrive with a slight bend in the middle. It is how they are manufactured. The solution from the company is to place it in the sun with warm water for a few hours or lay flat on the ground with something heavy on it. This is how the trays are made and cannot always be avoided.

* When using the tuff tray do not overload it with weight this can lead to the tray bending and warping. The Tray is intended for small world play, arts and crafts, etc. 

* This a product designed for indoor storage. It can be used outside but its not designed to be left in the elements.

Tuff tray awesome play!

My boys love playing on the tray. They play with bubbles and small figures. They also love to create a beach of shells, sand and water. I didn’t realise how much fun they would have. I’ll use it at playgroup as well. Highly recommend.
