Tuff Tray

$68.90 AUD
14 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) 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: 94cm x 94cm x 7.5cm
  • Made from: a durable plastic
  • Colour: Black only
  • Large heavy-duty plastic tray. It's lightweight & is octagonal shaped with raised sides which make it perfect for containing messy play.
  • Easy to clean after messy play

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. 

Our Tuff trays can only be shipped within Australia at this stage due to their large size. We do not sell the stands as they are too large to store and ship. We suggest to get in contact with your local Men's shed and ask them to make a wooden stand for it.

Love our tuff tray

I bought this tuff tray for my daughters first birthday. She loves getting messy but often knocks her messy play over and they go all over the grass or floor. I LOVE that everything is contained in the tuff tray and doesn’t just disappear when she knocks them over. So much creativity to be had!

Tuff tray - a must for sensory play

This has been an excellent addition, it makes any sort of sensory and messy play contained. It's so easy to clean, and a nice size for my two little ones (aged 4 and 2). No regrets!

Should’ve bought this earlier

We use it every day. This makes playing with water much easier to deal with. Easier to clean up activities once they’re done. Definitely a good investment, should’ve gotten this earlier to be honest.

Brilliant Tuff Tray

The tuff tray is the handiest craft station ever and can be used for so many other things that would usually end up being very messy. One of the more convenient purchases I’ve made for the grandkids.

Hours of (Contained) Messy Fun

A fabulous product! For someone who always puts off creating messy experiences with my toddler, as I cant handle the mess, the tough tray has been a god send. It’s so quick and easy to clean up any messy play activities, from kenetic sand, to paint - would highly recommend.

Love it!

I looove our tuff tray!! I’ve been waiting to find one for ages and it’s exactly what I imagined. Having 3 littlies who love small world play, slime, playdough, water beads and all kinds of activities with little parts so having the tray to keep their games and activities contained is essential and so helpful! Fits so many kids around it for playing with friends and cousins too.
