The children can be moved along the length of the blank to balance them and they are designed in such a way that they slide easily down the plank but don't fall off. The seesaw has the following approximate measurements.
Plank- 14cm long x 0.6cm wide. Log - 5cm long x 3cm wide x 2.5cm deep. The children 3.5 cm tall x 1.5cm wide x 1.5 cm deep. The pieces are in very good condition with no obvious damage. There is some paint loss, which is to be expected as these were well played with, and this can be seen in the photos.This is a fabulous set, which makes a great display piece and talking point. It's hard to resist giving the plank a light tap to watch it rock, or to move the children along the plank to re-balance it. In addition to being a collectors piece for anyone interested in vintage lead toys, it would also make a good addition to a model village or other model scenes. Please take a look at the photos for details of condition as these form part of the item description. Please feel free to contact me with queries. I usually try to reply the same day. This set is not suitable for use as toys for children due to the lead content, but are ok for adults to collect or display. They may also be a choking hazard for young children.
