I went out souvenir shopping on the morning before we came home -
bought this lovely but slightly dangerous toy alongwith some ace boots
and some other bits and pieces. Check out the video, took me a while
to figure out how it worked.

Well, there is a spring over the flame and when it heats up is unravels and when it cools down it contracts - this makes the spring turn which causes a small bead to turn inside and the bead is attached to the weighted ball which, with the turn, counterbalances the seesaw. Simple but effective.
