I hope that Tinker Tray Play will provide you with an inspiring and extensive range of toys and open ended resources so that Tinker Tray Play becomes your first choice of educational supplier.



​I am dedicated to providing high quality products at Tinker Tray Play. I offer a friendly, helpful service, and am always happy to answer questions about any of my products. All of your orders are packed and posted with great care to ensure your items reach you safely. My website is safe, secure, and easy to use and I can be contacted by email at any time, I will always respond promptly – due to time differences this may not be until morning time in the UK 🙂


I am fair and honest and treat all of my customers and suppliers with respect. I take great care to describe each of my products accurately and use either the suppliers photographs or clear pictures that I have taken myself. I actively work to minimise my environmental footprint by reusing packing materials, and wherever possible buying materials that can be recycled or are degradable.



You are welcome to contact me with any after sale questions about your order. I will happily offer advice or help you resolve any issues.


All products have been chosen with safety in mind. Age recommendations have been given within the item description. It is for the adult and educational provider to risk assess resources and activities based upon the individual needs of the children who will use them. All play should be supervised by a responsible adult.

Tinker trays, treasure baskets and loose part play sets are by their very nature functional everyday household items, and as such will not all have a CE mark. The Toy Safety Directive lists an exclusion from the CE marking requirements for “products intended for use for educational purposes in schools and other pedagogical contexts under the surveillance of an adult instructor.” These products are not considered to be toys within the meaning of the Toy Safety Directive.

– Credit / Debit Cards

– Paypal

– Klarna Payments

If you are a school or nursery setting and would like to pay by invoice you can email your purchase order to me at or place your order via the webiste and select the ‘Bank Transfer for Schools and Settings’ option. I will then invoice you for your order and dispatch your items once payment has been made.

What is Klarna?

Klarna is a payment option that’s an alternative to a credit card. Here’s how it works:

Step 1
Add products to your cart and select “Klarna” when you check out
Step 2
Enter a few personal details and you’ll know instantly if you’re approved
Step 3
Klarna will send you an email confirmation and reminders when it’s time to pay and
you can manage your orders and payments in the Klarna app.

Spread the cost of your purchase into 3 interest-free instalments. The first payment is made at point of purchase, with remaining instalments scheduled automatically every 30 days. No interest or fees. Select the Klarna option and enter your debit or credit card information. 

Klarna’s Pay in 3 installments and Pay in 30 days credit agreements are not regulated by the FCA. Use of these and any missed payments may affect your ability to obtain credit from Klarna and other lenders. 18+ UK residents only. Subject to status. T&C’s apply.

Klarna financing gives you the option to start paying for your goods after you have received them. The first time you choose to buy with Financing, you will be asked to apply for a Klarna Account at the checkout phase. They will then carry out an affordability assessment. If you are approved they will then create your account. If you already have a Klarna account the order amount of any purchases you make with the Financing option will be added to your total balance, provided the new purchase does not take you over your available credit limit. Payment information is processed securely by Klarna. All transactions take place via secure connections secured protected with the latest industry standard security protocols. To use Instalments you must be at least 18. Whilst this option is widely promoted, Instalments is subject to your financial circumstances. 

What happens if I cancel or return my order?

As soon as the merchant has accepted your cancellation/return, Klarna will cancel any future scheduled payments as well as refund any amounts due.

Klarna Privacy Notice – In order to offer you Klarna’s payment methods, we will pass your personal data in the form of contact and order details to Klarna, in order for Klarna to assess whether you qualify for their payment methods and to tailor those payment methods for you. Your personal data transferred is processed in line with Klarna’s own privacy notice.
