Despite the fact that summers in San Antonio can get oppressively hot, I’ve been on the hunt for good backyard toys for my kids.  I had my eye on several inexpensive teeter totters (or seesaws) for my kids and was debating about which one to get.  That’s when I flipped through HearthSong’s online summer catalog.

Wow!  Although I already had in mind what I wanted when I flipped through the catalog, there were so many awesome summer toys that I knew my kids would like I found my resolve to get this particular item falter.  You can tell that HearthSong is expert when it comes to knowing what their customers will like.

Here are some of the fun finds I found!


I’d never seen an inflatable waterslide used at a pool before.  What a great idea this Super Backyard Waterslide is!


Have you watched any videos on these Spooner Boards?  They look so cool!


These Buddy Bumper Balls are a little too old for my boys, but the look like a blast nonetheless!

In the end I stuck with my resolve and bought a Seesaw.  It wasn’t just a standard see saw.  HearthSong has this Spinning Seesaw that I knew would add heaps to the fun my boys would have on a standard see saw.


It turns out the HearthSong Durable Weather-Resistant Metal Spinning Seesaw was just right for the boys!  Though 2 and a half years apart in age, my boys weigh within a few pounds of each other. At just 2 1/2 our younger son is a little below the 3 year age limit, but, as you can see in the video below, we always stay very close when the boys are riding.

As you can hear from all the giggling on the video my boys love their spinning seesaw!  There was just 1 minor thing that I was unhappy about.

1) To put the seesaw together requires a tool that is apparently not very common.  I had my husband search all through his toolbox for a screwdriver attachment that would fit the odd size square head screw.  We didn’t have anything that would fit and all our allen wrenches were too big or two small.  I even went to the store and bought the only screwdriver set with attachments that looked like they’d fit, but no, they didn’t fit.  In the end my husband tried the allen wrench set for his bicycle, and, guess what? One worked!  The SeeSaw already comes with one allen wrench and I might suggest they add another for these odd screws that we don’t seem to see much in America.

Other than that I’m completely happy with the Spinning Seesaw and so are my boys!

Right now you can purchase the Weather-Resistant Metal Spinning Seesaw from HearthSong for just $55.97 (sale price)!
