Teeter Totter Built For One
"I got the idea when I had to work one end of a see-saw myself to give my daughter a ride," says Denis Tilson, a New Zealand manufacturer who's come up with the world's first teeter-totter (or see-saw) built for one.
The galvanized steel teeter-totter, which has just come on the market, is "powered" by eight standard trampoline springs mounted on a swivel bar to keep them more or less in line with the weight of the child at the other end. The swivel-spring assembly is attached to the main frame with a threaded coupling that allows tension to be infinitely adjusted for different-size children.
"Once it's adjusted, the child pushes off the ground to get started and then just swings his legs to ride. It can be chained at a low level to suit very small children," says Tilson. The single-seater is suitable for children ranging from 1 to 12 years. Sells for $222 (New Zealand). Tilson manufactures a full line of playground equipment.
