We have a very small back yard, but my boys love it and we spend a lot of time outside. My boys have been dreaming of a swing, but we do not have any good branches, and there is no room for a swing set, so I have been looking for an alternative. When I discovered the Spinning Seesaw at HearthSong I knew that I had found what I was looking for, a perfect alternative to a big swing set.
Assembling the seesaw appeared to be easy, but we were missing an essential tool. After some research my husband found out that it could be bought at Home Depot, but it came in an $8 kit, and we were not 100 percent sure that it would fit. So, instead he ended up using pliers to screw the last screws in , and I had to hand over my project as I did not have enough strength to do it by myself.
Once the assembly problem was solved, we were on a roll and we had the spinning seesaw set up in the backyard in no time. The boys loved it! I surely wish that I could take it for a spin myself, because it looks like a blast, and the pure giggles from my toddler are just priceless.
This Durable Weather-Resistant Metal Spinning Seesaw is simple to use and moving it around the backyard is easty. The spinning seesaw goes both up and down and around, and both the seats and handles are very durable.
The Spinning Seesaw is a fantastic outdoor toy, and my kids are having a blast with it. My five-year-old told me that it was just like having a real playground in the backyard.
