The training to use catapult in an appropriate way was learned by children in ancient Greece. Catapult cause much tumult to get the result as the siege weapon when the soldiers wanted to destroy the entrance of the fortified walled cities and castles.
For safety, the catapult will not lob stones, but is a visual replica.
Size is 16.5 x 7.6 x 10.1 cm ( 6.5 x 3 x 4 inches) and therefore is made from pine and oak. The toy catapult will not destroy walls, but is an additional item for the Trojan Horse Ride On Horse. These are so stimulative of creative play. Boys and girls alike LOVE these launchers as it can teach about history or physics.
