I thought i would try and make these, the first pair i made was out of apple wood and just the lest little bit of pressure they broke at the dowel pen, so made the second pair out of 3/8 plywood and they did the same thing, so i said has to be hard wood, so got a pice of oak, and here they are! grandson’s are wanting them now but afraid they will pinch each other, you know how boy’s are!

Very creative. I like it. However, like you say, maybe not for children. OK, they are not wooden pliers. Take what you have learned, redesign a little, and make a nutcracker for the really big nuts, the adults. The nice thing about the adults is that they love toys too. Besides, they have wallets and money.

For the grand kids you could make some that have curved handles that hit before the jaws close tight.
