Product reviews from our experts…


Firstly the packaging was incredible – so luxurious! Upon opening I was delighted by the stunning detail in the flora & fauna design. I loved the weight of the tray and the endless ways it could be used! Somedays it served as a tool for sensory exploration, other days it was used to create wonderful picnics for fairies and friends alike! Made from excellent non-toxic materials, bamboo fibre and corn starch. It was surprisingly incredibly durable! I could see this being something that provides our family many many hours of fun and exploration!

I also value that this business is committed to reducing the use of plastic products that end up in landfill, by providing a product that is useful, fun, and that provides children opportunities for learning and exploration.

I love its ability to be customised and has an easily washable surface. The tray sizes are workable and practical for all mediums. I’ve found the surface to be stain resistant and it stored nicely.

I also respect the holistic approach to utilising the business to support the protection and rehabilitation of bee habitats through a range of organisations in Australia, spreading the impact far and wide.

It’s so beautifully made. We use it for all sorts of tactile games such as beads, and as a mini-storage tray. It’s fantastic! I love their commitment to ensuring the ongoing survival of bees – so super important to our ecosystem (and porridge in the morning). I also think that by making such a high quality product – they are doing an amazing job to make sure it’s used over and over and over!
