The small size means that Harry is able to climb onto the seat himself, and then Emmy could still reach to get herself on. They can’t manage this the other way around so Emmy needs to remember to allow Harry to climb on first, and she is pretty good.
Once anchored to the ground it doesn’t matter how rough they are and how much they bounce it doesn’t move thankfully.
Under each seat is a bar with a cushioned end, this is to stop the seats going too low to the ground, while the cushioned end stops damage to the grass and stops it being a bumpy ride.
As well as being a traditional seesaw, this is also a round about too. By staying on the seats you can either bounce it around in a full circle or if your feeling lazy like my two often are – you can make an adult swing you around.
With padded grip handlebars it helps you to stay in a seated position.
I do find Harry slips off the seat often when either being bounced in a circle or bounced up and down too hard by Emmy. He doesn’t seem to mind though and just shouts ‘Elp Me’ until he is put back on and giggles when it happens again.
|I love how giggly this makes Harry|
In my option if the seats were deeper it would stop this from happening but they both love it and have had hours of enjoyment from it so it doesn’t ruin it for them at all. One niggle I have is that the rivet pin in the centre of this keeps falling out, it could do with having a bolt on the end to stop it happening, it’s not helped by the fact it can easily be pulled out by Harry, who has now learnt that if he does remove it the bar with the 2 seats attached can come off – he thinks it’s rather funny to remove the pin and then hide it.
Priced currently at only £46.70 it is great value for a 2 in 1 toys which provides so much enjoyment and which forces my two to co-operate and to share!
I am now debating what else our garden needs for next summer and am 99.9% sure they would really LOVE one of these climbing frames, just where it would go now I’ve bought the 12ft trampoline I don’t know, but it would keep they
quiet happy wouldn’t it?
