Fig. 1.

A rocker is built with long and short LEGO™ bricks. Additional bricks on the arms increase the period. The bottom of the rocker includes an angle φ(t) with the horizontal table. The rocking frequency rises as the amplitude of the oscillation decreases.

A LEGO rocker oscillates for several seconds. The period depends on the amplitude.
