I'm not sure the fears were exaggerated, since I fractured my knee when aged eight by being a little too enthusiastic rocking the contraption. I was stood at the rear, no one being on it, and I rocked it higher and higher until eventually it came crashing down on my bent knee. An idiot cycled me home on the crossbar of his bike - me in agony all the way. I'm not sure of the exact model, since it happened 60 years ago, but I think they did require a little more thought concerning such possible accidents.
