Minimise mess with the Toddler Messy Tray

Gone are the days of trying to peel caked-on mashed banana off the kitchen table or having to get the vacuum/mop/dog every time your tot has a snack. And watching your toddler pick up a plate of food and purposely drop it on the floor? No more!

The Toddler Messy Tray contains the mess to the tray AND keeps it in place, allowing you to enjoy a more relaxed mealtime that doesn’t end with you having to mop spaghetti sauce off the floor.

Toddler mealtime made easy with the Toddler Messy Tray

The Toddler Messy Tray ticks all the boxes and then some:

Super light and durable.

Suction to all surfaces.
Spill-proof sides all around. No more juice spills!
Fits perfectly over the table edge.

Carry handle for easy grip and carry.
Made from non-toxic and food-grade tested materials.

Ideal for independent little eaters

The Toddler Messy Tray is a great way to give your tot the independence she wants without the crazy cleanup  that tends to follow said mealtime. Many tots prefer to be at the big table with everyone else, which is often why the meals end up on the floor – out of defiance.

Furthermore, many children HATE wearing bibs. My daughter will literally throw herself on the floor and howl like a banshee if we even mention the word.

It’s suitable for both a dining table or a small table and chair set, which is where many tots prefer to eat, especially during snack time.

Pack and go

You can easily bring it with you when eating out too. It’s small enough to fit in a nappy bag or backpack and a COVID-friendly way to enjoy meals out with your tot.

Whether having a picnic or BBQ at the local picnic table or public setting, there’s no need to worry about germs on the table – simply place the tray down, allow cups to create suction and you’re on your way!

Capture spills 

Plus, it’s great when out for dinner at a restaurant. I really don’t like using the communal high chairs, almost as much as I don’t like watching my toddler spill her drink on the floor and attempting to mop it up with a napkin. #FACEPALM.

With the Toddler Messy Tray, the spill-proof edging will keep juice/water/yoghurt/any other gooey concoction on the tray, not leaking all over the floors.

Cute characters

Toddlers will love the design too. My daughter had a blast pointing at all the different veggie characters and trying to name them. Got most of them wrong, but, hey, baby steps.

If there’s a cute carrot character on her tray, maybe she will be more inclined to eat the carrots I cook for her? Worth a shot, right??
