Seesaw is a common children's amusement equipment, which uses the lever principle to enable interaction between participants. However, the pivots of traditional seesaw's are usually fixed in the centre of the lever and they can only be used by persons of similar weight. This hinders play interactions between parents and children to some extent. The design of Parenting Adjustable Pivot Seesaw borrows from the principle that traditional steelyards can move the weight to maintain balance. Hence, by moving the position of the seesaw lever fulcrum to change the torque, parents and children can use the same seesaw at the same time, which facilitates communication that is conducive to the growth of a child.
