Go Happy Kids Travel Tray

First off, I received a free Go Happy Kids Travel Tray in exchange for my fair and honest review AND of course to create a fun and easy activity for parents to do using their tray.

The best thing about the Go Happy Kids Travel Tray is that it’s not just good for traveling at on a plane. You can use it at the park, beach or anywhere you need a hard clean surface for your little one to play or eat on.

With my twins screen time is zero so when they are awake my 5 year old is also off the screens. Having to keep them entertained while out isn’t always easy but with the Go Happy Kids Travel Tray I have the option of bring out the play doh or stickers or colouring books to entertain everyone!

A Little About the Go Happy Kids Travel Tray

No need to worry about the surfaces your little one is playing and eating off of. The Go Happy Kids Travel Tray is made with BPA-free, PVC-free, phthalate-free, FDA & EU food safe approved ABS plastic. Includes a removable, food safe, easy to clean, grippy silicone liner — eat & play on a clean surface.

This Travel Tray is built for playing! The 15 x 11” firm tray and raised border offers kids their own special contained space to play & create with whatever keeps them engaged. The ABS plastic surface also functions as a dry erase whiteboard with most non-toxic dry erase markers.

It’s also designed with kids in mind! The grippy bottom surface and optional adjustable strap help the tray stay put on plane & train tray tables. No more food, toys, crayons, etc. on yucky floors! No assembly required.

This tray is also built with style. Although it doesn’t fold, the lightweight (1LB) no fuss design slips easily into backpacks or carry-ons, just like a laptop. Drawstring storage bag included.
