Deliveries outside of Europe & the US

International delivery prices vary depending on your country of residence and size of parcel. These prices are calculated at checkout. Unfortunately air freight is charged by its volumetric weight. This takes into account the size of the parcel and as the PlayTRAY is a bulky item it makes international deliveries costly. International orders are zero-rated- you pay no VAT. Instead we have used this VAT portion to reduce the shipping cost for you.

 Please note that for delivery to some worldwide destinations there may be additional customs duties and charges for which customers are responsible for paying. We are not able to advise on exact customs charges and you will need to investigate this before placing an order.

Customs will not release your delivery until these charges are settled. Please look out for a text or email from the courier. If the courier alerts us that they can't contact you to settle customs charges we will make every reasonable attempt to get hold of you ourselves. If however, you still do not settle the customs bill or reject the delivery and it is returned to us by the courier we unfortunately have to deduct this cost from your refund.

Remote area surcharge

Please note that some areas are classed as remote by the courier and may incur a remote area surcharge. If this is the case we will let you know and you can decide whether you are happy to pay and proceed or would like to cancel your order.

Returns

Once you receive your purchase you will have a 30-day returns period, which means you have 30 days after receiving your item to request a return.  You are welcome to return the product for a full refund, excluding shipping costs*, subject to the following conditions:

  • All returns must be unused and in their original condition (including all original packaging).

Inspire My Play Ltd reserves the right to reject returns outside the 30 day return

packaging.

If your parcel is returned to us due to a rejected delivery or failure to claim the parcel, then you will be responsible for paying the return charge. This will be deducted from your refund, along with the initial shipping charge.

What is the PlayTRAY made of?

The PlayTRAY is made from BPA-free, phthalate-free, FDA & LFGB food-safe ABS plastic. It has silicone feet on both the shallow and deep trays, and a silicone seal around the lid.

How is the PlayTRAY packaged?

The PlayTRAY will be packaged in a cardboard box. All boxes can be fully recycled.

Is the PlayTRAY safe for children to use?

The PlayTRAY has been thoroughly safety tested to comply with international toy safety standards. It carries the CE and the new UKCA safety marks. We do ask that you supervise your child carefully when playing with activities in the PlayTRAY, particularly if they involve water or materials that could be a choking hazard.

What age do you recommend the PlayTRAY for?

The PlayTRAY is tested & certified for use from birth. It is designed to be used by children of all ages, with the shallow tray being ideal to start using with younger ones before graduating to the deeper tray. As always, we ask that you please consider the age-appropriateness of the activities you set up in the PlayTRAY and supervise play at all times. 

How can I use my PlayTRAY?

The PlayTRAY is designed to be used for all sorts of sensory play, sand, water & craft activities and we can't wait to see the activities you set up! It is made from high quality ABS plastic, but we recommend not overfilling your tray, particularly if you intend to move the tray afterwards.

The PlayTRAY can be used on the table-top or the floor. We do not recommend leaving it outdoors for long periods of time, as you may start to see some weathering and discolouration of the plastic over time.

The inside surface of both trays and the compartments have a gloss finish, enabling them to be used with most dry-wipe pens (please test first). The PlayTRAY is freezer safe.

How do I care for my PlayTRAY?

The PlayTRAY can be cleaned using hot, soapy water and is dishwasher safe up to 60 degrees. Do not clean in a UV dishwasher. Anything higher than this may damage the tray.  Please do not use any solvents as these may also damage the PlayTRAY.


ABS plastic was chosen due to its stain resistant properties and it has undergone rigorous testing with the use of food colouring (Wilton brand), sand, play dough and other commonly used play resources.

However, please bear in mind that it is white and in particular that some paint products may stain it. Read the instructions of your paint products carefully and test on an inconspicuous area first.

You may also find that some colours of jello may stain your tray. We recommend using gelatine and a bit of food colouring instead.

When using the PlayTRAY for really messy activities and crafts we recommend cleaning it straight afterwards to keep it looking its best. 

How do I know if you deliver the PlayTRAY to the country where I live?

Please read our Shipping & Returns page for the latest information on where we are shipping to. We are constantly looking for ways to make shipping the PlayTRAY internationally more affordable and as we become more established as a business we hope to offer more localized, affordable shipping.

Can I return my PlayTRAY?

We want you to be 100% happy with your purchase and offer a 30-day returns period. You are welcome to return the product for a full refund excluding shipping costs subject to certain conditions. You can find out more about these on our Shipping & Returns page.

Wish I’d got it sooner

I love our play tray and really wish I’d invested in it sooner. The fact it has a lid to shut it all away until the next play session is brilliant, especially if little one hasn’t quite finished playing with it and wants to explore some more. It also extends the play onto different spaces and the compartments are really handy to be able to contain the loose parts or create mini play spaces for small world play or to mix up messy sensory play and get stuck in. It’s easy to clean, with a quality finish that is durable for little hands and slip free. I basically love it. It’s an investment piece for sure but given all the invitations to play I’ve set up and had to clear up this has been marvellous and worth the money because it has encouraged her to play within the tray which makes the clear up so much easier. I also love the little booklet with ideas which have definitely inspired our play. And it can also double up as an actual tray set or snack dishes or for my own crafts for when little one grows out of it so it has a lifespan beyond just a kid’s play tray.

Play tray all day!

I had been seeing the play tray all over social media for sensory play!

My three year old loves it, and I love it!

Super easy clean up, perfect size and shape!

I love that it has a lid and many containers inside thst I can remove and clean/pour or separate easily!

I have used it for COUNTLESS activities since we got it a few weeks ago, and I have tons more ideas!

Worth every penny and so wonderful!

(The only disappointed I had was that it shipped via Amazon and I was hopeful by using a small business zero money would go to Amazon) other wise top notch!

Absolutely the BEST tray I have ever bought for play set ups.

I have many, many trays for play setups but this tray has to be the best of the best. It is so versatile with what you can do with it due to the removable triangle trays. It is very sturdy and appealing to the eye on photos for instagram. The best part though, my children absolutely love the setups I can create using this tray and that is what matters above all else. Perfect for messy play, a large tinker tray, smaller tinker trays when taken apart, great for playdough sets. I just do have the words to describe how much we love this tray! Worth every penny and arrived very quickly.
