Tuff Tray

$74.95 AUD
54 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 have found that they take longer to be delivered by Australia Post due to their oversized nature. Please factor this in when ordering a Tuff Tray.

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. 

Shipping of the trays is our usual flat rate of $10.95.

Worth your money!

I am very happy with the black tuff tray. Quick delivery and carefully wrapped up. It is really sturdy and thick. I can set up many sensory activities with my 11-months old son. I think it is really worth with the amount of money that I paid for it! Can't recommend enough!

Great versatile tray

Such a good item. The ideas of using this item are endless! So much contained sensory options. Indoors & outdoors. It’s light so easy to move. You can buy or make legs for it for older children or to give it a new look.

So much fun

This is such a useful tray! Wish I’d bought it sooner- my 3yo loves small world and messy play and this is so versatile for both. He especially loves getting his feet into the action. It’ll be great for indoor play over winter too, I wish I’d had this during our 6 lockdowns! Highly recommend
