Tipsi Tray one-handed no spill tray – £35.95
As seen on Dragon’s Den – the Tipsi Tray is an ingenious one-handed no spill tray that is unlike anything you’ve ever seen before. It is made to help you carry with one hand, no matter how shaky your hands are or how difficult you usually find it to carry items safely on a traditional tray.
The Tipsi Tray uses centripetal force to ensure cups, glasses and crockery remain steady whilst on the move being carried in your hand.
It is designed to make life easier for anyone who would benefit from using a tray one-handed.
This mobility aid is an ideal Christmas gift for anyone with balance problems, dexterity issues and disabilities – such as Parkinson’s disease or cerebral palsy – which makes carrying a standard, traditional two-handed tray a lot more difficult, or even dangerous.
It can also be a great accessible product for when you’re hosting Christmas dinner for your friends and family or serving drinks at festive gatherings.
The Tipsi Tray is 14-inches, weighs 1.5kg and has a removable handle, which allows the one-handed tray to be stored away. It has enough surface area for a dinner plate and a drink or up to 8 to 9 glasses or mugs.
