Product Details

Build your own medieval siege engines from pre-drilled KEVA planks, a little glue and the help of easy, step-by-step "blueprint" instructions. Then let the fun and experimentation begin! The Catapult allows you to test launch distance by adjusting the arm recoil or the height of the flight deck. What will go farther, a marshmallow or a piece of macaroni? The Trebuchet can vary its hurl by altering the counterweight; experiment to knock down a field of target planks using the two included balls. The Wrecking Ball is a master of destruction! Turn cranks, a winding drum, a removable boom and hoist rope provide huge impact and a smashing lesson on pendulums and the effects of energy and motion.

EXCLUSIVE! Buy all three siege engines and get a FREE set of 50 bonus planks to use as targets!

Age Recommendation: Ages 7 and up.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great Winter Indoor activity Bought as activity for visiting family: one grandpa, two dads, three 'helpers' age 6 and 9. Good for 9 yr with Grandpa. Each dad had a six year old helper who's attention span wasn't long enough for the whole build project. Didn't think ahead to allow 12 hours of glue drying time prior to 'battles'. Catapult by far was the easiest to hit plank built targets. We also purchased extra planks.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from perfect for an overactive, inquisitive, intelligent child We purchased the trio of siege engines for an 8 year old boy (and as it turned out-his mom, uncle etc. etc.) It was a perfect choice. The boy felt that the ball could have been heavier so it could go further and knock down bigger things. The family, on the other hand , considered the weight and trajectory to be just fine. Thanks Mindware for a well thought out quality learning experience, which happens to be a lot of fun. As a bonus we feel he might be getting the hang of reading and following instructions!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from 9 year old is in love... My nine year old son has had a great time building these kits. We bought all three--wrecking ball, trebuchet, and catapult. He and my husband have been building them together, and he has declared them "most awesome." He was disappointed to know that there were not any others to add to his collection!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from When I realized these projects were glued together I worried that they wouldn't work out very well, but the glue worked AMAZINGLY well, and the plans were easy to follow and put together as a team. My girls (5 and 8) and I put together the trebuchet and played with it for hours!
