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 make the PlayTRAY lid air-tight?
The PlayTRAY has been designed with an air-tight seal around the lid to help preserve the contents of your tray for longer. When fully closed the lid and the tray sit just under a cm apart enabling you to get your fingers between the two to remove the lid.
To make your PlayTRAY air-tight, lay the lid centrally on the base tray. Now place your fingers under the base tray rim and press down firmly on top of the lid rim using your thumbs, essentially squeezing the two rims together. You may need to do this a few times around the circumference of your tray until it is completely shut. Remember, the rims won't fully come together- it is designed this way to enable you to remove the lid again.
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.
