Playground Equipment: Seesaws & Teeter-Totters

Don’t forget the playground seesaw when you are setting up play structures for a playground! The popular and versatile seesaw has long been a favorite of children when they are playing outside, and there is little doubt that this will continue well into the future. In fact, if you glance at just about any playground during recess time, you’ll find kids moving up and down on seesaws of various kinds.

Today, those who are looking to set up a commercial or private play space have much to choose from when they are in the market for seesaw playground equipment. From traditional seesaws that seat two children, to playground teeter-totters that sit upon a spring and accommodate more than two kids at a time, to many other models, there is no shortage of options when it comes to choosing the best seesaw play equipment.

Seesaws and Safety

The most important consideration when purchasing playground equipment such as a seesaw is safety, so you will want to take into account the recommendations of playground safety experts when you are buying your seesaw. Playground designers must consider the different ages of the children who will be using the equipment regularly, for the type of seesaw that is suitable for older kids is not necessarily fit for younger children.

Because toddlers are just developing their muscle coordination and balance, it is important that they have seesaws that will not abruptly plunge them to the ground if the person on the other side gets off. Thus, playground safety experts recommend that you use only seesaws and teeter-totters with a spring or rocking element because those pieces of equipment will gently lower a child and not crash kids firmly to the ground when it is time to get off.

Other seesaw safety tips include making sure that children face one another on the seesaw when they are using it. That is essential for maintaining proper balance and a smoother, safer ride on the equipment. Playground designers can help facilitate this by not placing other play structures in a position where a child will be tempted to turn around on the seesaw or teeter-totter seat to watch children playing on other equipment. If there are few distractions close by, most children will sit properly at all times on the playground equipment. Teeter-totter and seesaw safety will keep the playground experience an enjoyable one, and owners will be at a reduced risk of liability in the case of injury.

Seesaw Maintenance

When it comes to playground equipment, seesaw maintenance is generally simple and hassle-free. Traditional seesaws will need their pivot point oiled to keep the equipment operating smoothly, and periodic repainting may be necessary depending on the type of seesaw that you purchase. Heavy-duty plastic teeter-totters are particularly simple to maintain, as a periodic washing with a garden hose and mild soap is about all that is required to keep them in the best condition possible.
