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.


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:

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 or taken outdoors if you wish. We do not recommend leaving it outdoors permanently, 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. Please do not use any solvents as these may 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 gelatin 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.

A little disappointed

The play tray is very nice quality Amd bigger than I expected. We bought three for our school and I anticipate the students will love these…as will we when we plan each activity. I am disappointed however that the book of ideas was not included. At the time of ordering it appeared to “come with” your order. It also appeared that it was an actual full color book. However when the tray arrived all that was in the box with the tray was a card saying you had to go to the website and enter a code for the ebook. So now after spending quite a bit on these trays I have to pay to have the book printed? And I can’t even add it to my cart and apply the code per the instructions because it’s saying the books is out of stock. Seems like a frustrating way to introduce customers to your product.

Missing ebook

I receive the play tray as a gift for my child care center from a parent. There was a card to get the ebook for more ideas but now it says the ebook is unavailable. It is very disappointing as I feel the book would help guide other staff on how to best utilize the playtray.

Hi Betsy,

I'm sorry you've had trouble downloading the e-book. It is still available to download so please get in touch with us at and we will send you a copy.

Sensory fun

The Inspire play tray is so versatile within a classroom setting it's just been fantastic and the kids are loving it. I made a butterfly garden in the large tray and in the sectional part of the tray I put all types of art media to be placed within a large butterfly cutout. This activity kept the kids engaged throughout the week. I also love the ebook with all the great ideas. Thank you Inspire!

Amazing sensory play toy for children of all ages, every time my grand daughter comes over I create a new game to play. Absolutely love it 😍

An excellent open ended resource

This is a really useful resource in my toddler and preschool room. It can be used in a number of ways & the booklet explains all the different ways to use the tray which is helpful to the staff team to give inspiration.
