This TP Toys Wooden Seesaw makes an attractive addition to the garden, and you can’t go far wrong with this beautiful wooden version. While the FSC certified wood gives you the look of a classic seesaw, this product also rotates for a fun and exciting ride.

The seesaw is suitable for children up to eight years old, however, if yours are 6 or under I would choose a larger model as they will grow out of this too quickly for it to be good value.

Children’s Seesaw Buying Guide
A seesaw is a great addition to your child’s garden toys. They are reasonably priced, easy to set up and provide hours of fun for children. They encourage cooperative play and help your children develop coordination as well as getting plenty of exercise.
The smallest children’s seesaws or rockers are suitable for toddlers and can be used inside our outdoors. Larger models, suitable for outdoor use, will provide plenty of fun for older children. There are also seesaws that spin around for extra excitement and play value.
When choosing a childrens seesaw, make sure you find one that is the right size for your needs and that can be placed somewhere where you can easily supervise your children while they play.
Plastic rockers are more suitable for the smallest children, while larger seesaws with a rotating action will provide more play value for older kids.
You should choose a seesaw that is made from durable materials such as weather resistant plastic, powder coated steel or wood. If you choose a wooden version make sure it is made from sustainably sourced wood and has been treated with a child friendly preservative.
Can you put a seesaw on concrete as we have no lawn?
There are a couple of problems with using childrens seesaws on concrete. Firstly, the concrete is very hard, and children may be injured if they fall off. Secondly, some seesaws are secured with ground anchors which it will be impossible to fix into existing concrete.
However, some seesaws do not require anchoring so you could use one of these if you place it on some nice thick play mats. The smaller models are also suitable for use indoors.
