Heuristic Play Sets

Choose from our range of treasure sets or tinker trays. The perfect introduction to loose parts play. The word ‘heuristic’ comes from the word ‘eurisko’ which means to learn, discover or reach an understanding of something. Our treasure sets allow children to use their senses and explore real-world objects made from natural materials.

Build Your Own Loose Parts Collection

Build your own loose parts collection or treasure set with our collection of loose parts. Loose parts are materials that can be moved, carried, combined, redesigned, lined up, and taken apart and put back together in multiple ways. They are materials with no specific set of directions that can be used alone or combined with other materials.

Our happy customers!

Thanks ProjectPlay, the children were very excited when the box arrived today.

“Is it for you or us?”, super excitement by Mr16mths and Mr3 years, over the newspaper in the box. Miss3 was very excited by the “ sparkly bangles“. After leaving them to see what they would do, Mr3 gathered more loose parts and started playing. I’m sure I’ll be ordering for my inhome care children again.
