I have 4 grey tree frogslets now that are just out of the water and they don’t seem to be eating either. I know I have read that they don’t need food till their tail is completely resorbed so not totally worried yet but very interested in what your told.....

Yes it’s true what you guys are saying -- right during the short period when the froglet is completing its transformation, they tend not to eat because their mouthparts and digestive system are changing from the tadpole form to the adult frog form. As soon as the tail is completely absorbed it should start eating.

also they are completely tail-less and I cant find food for the smaller ones the petstore I go to does not get pinheads but I will try fruit flies but I think those are too small for the frogs to eat.

try a commercial supplier like Ghann’s Cricket Farm, they carry all sizes of crickets from tiny pinheads on up, their prices are reasonable and their crickets are always pest free.
