In 2022, no more makeup!
Finished the coat of varnish on the trays and on the storage box, the wood is now steamed then sanded with a fine grain to obtain a pleasant touch.
Potential exposure to substances likely to form chemical cocktails whose effects remain unknown is therefore reduced.
The thicknesses used have been reinforced in order to obtain a tray that is more resistant to the ravages of time (and those of the children...), in particular by limiting the natural risk of warping.
A visible robustness and an impeccable finish of the handles so that even the youngest players handle the product themselves.
And to tidy up...
The 200 x 200 x 3 mm (7.87 x 7.87 x 0.11 inch) pad in SBS material, adhesive on both sides, permanently repositionable and washable, is now black, a color allowing a strong contrast to facilitate certain school or re-educational uses.
Thanks to its 4 "ears", the adhesive pad is easily installed and removed from the tray.
But what do we do with GOSTOP?
When in the tray, the SBS pad is used as a sticky horizontal play/activity area with papers, cardboard, plastic cards, tokens, wooden puzzle pieces (1) and facilitate making a model.
When off the board, the SBS pad is used as both a horizontal play/activity area or a vertical play/activity/display area.
What are the benefits of vertical play?
The benefits of vertical play have been covered in a previous post.
The tray without the SBS pad has a white background where you can write, draw, ... with an erasable marker.
This box with six storage spaces also has additional space to accommodate two additional trays (8-player workshop) or additional accessories for activities or games.

(1) To facilitate the adhesion of the wooden puzzle pieces, two solutions:
- Use a very fine grit sandpaper to obtain a very smooth back of the parts.
- Varnish the back of the wooden pieces and leave to dry for several days before use (on the eve of holidays for example)
