Seesaw with Tyres

The Seesaw with Tyres is a playground classic. It still attracts players again and again, as it has for generations. The vintage play item is still with us for a reason: the tickling in the stomach when going up high, and going down fast is eternally appealing. The Seesaw with Tyres develops the sense of space and rhythm and leg muscles of children. These are crucial motor skills that help children navigate the world securely, e.g. in the street when estimating time, movement and objects. The social dimension and degree of trust in your peer that is demanded when see-sawing, is a great way training of socio-emotional life skills such as turn- taking and cooperation. Empathy is trained as well, as players consider others’ limits and limitations. Or as they get inspired to try out things they didn’t dare to do before, because other children dare to.
