    My son loves playing with Legos but is rarely challenged by their building instructions so me and my wife decided to purchase this and see how he did with it. He was excited that it was a catapult and it gave him a little bit of a challenge like we wanted it too. (I had to help him put the rubber bands on correctly) . He loves to bring this out at random times and fling ping pong balls at us.

    My daughter wanted a robot for her birthday. This is what she picked out and she seems to enjoy it. She hasn't explored all of the features, but she really likes being able to make it go around the house and follow different programs that she's written. I imagine we can do a lot more with it after we have more time.

    This gift for my 8 year-old grandson fit the bill perfectly. As it had to be put together it was just the present that he and his dad could work on together. Their excitement grew as the catapult took form. I'm not exactly sure who was more looking forward to seeing how it worked.

    Brought this for my son in anticipation of a project he will be doing in school this year. This is a solid toy and the best part is that you can break it down into two other toys. Very affordable, educational, and he loved putting it together! Win, win, win, all around.

    My 6 year old and I have had a lot of fun building this. He assembled huge chunks of it myself without help. Very easy to follow instructions but more difficult than lego. We've had a lot of fun flinging things across the house and it helps us learn about things like velocity. Well worth the investment.

    Great for a gift. It sure is entertaining for a kid - simply loved it .Made with strong materials and very versatile for young minds.The kid I gave it to needed a little help him put it together, but both his dad and him enjoyed putting it together as much as playing with the end product.

    We bought three of these when they were half price. Two of them were missing pieces. Normally that would be enough to give such a low score but despite that and the difficulty of assembling the catapults for my 9 and 12 year old, they had a ton of fun.

    Excellent product, I think the concept is great. It took a while to build so I'd recommend it for kids who are very detail oriented and want to take time to experiment, though the actual catapult that is the main thing that can be constructed he plays with all the time.
