This projects objective was to create a toy which values childrens design. The productive process was based on the selection of materials. Wood was chosen for the seesaws body and for the trails that separate it from the ground. The handles were made out of stainless steel and rubber grips. The spheres that limit the toys movement were made out of compressed rubber. The process of wood lamination allows the pendular movement of traditional seesaws. Two angle brackets are attached to the seat bottoms in order to provide resistance and security. As a reference for manufacturing, reforestation wood such as Eucalyptus is recommended.
