My rating of Pathfinders Catapult Kit
Posted 7/6/2009 by Edward Acosta
Rating: 3

This is a good product. I really liked the design. It is easy to put together. There is one major flaw. The release arm does not hold the catapult arm down. A simple solution is to drill a small hole at the end of the dowel and slip a brad to it for a hook. I did not care for the 3/8 posts and made 2 3/4x3/8 replacements, (it looks much nicer). There are 3 extra holes on each side of the body that are not necessary. This can lead to misplaced posts. The catapult can have a more finished look if it is sanded to remove the harsh corners. Put a 6th of a sheet of 180 grit sandpaper in the kit. It is a fun toy.

Lots of fun to put together, but not very durable. We've glued and re-glued the pieces often.

Difficult to set up.
While a few find it hard to set up, most find the Pathfinders Catapult hard to put down! We venture to serve you well either way. We contacted our customer. Imaginations fly when we offer loads of fun alternatives. Please visit the Returns & Exchanges center for details.

Catapult Kit
Posted 2/6/2008 - TEACHER
Rating: 3

My son ( 8 1/2 ) recieved this gift. He was able to build it mostly by himself. He needed help with threading the string and winding the string tight enough to create enough tension. Once completed, he had great times experimenting with just how far he could "fling" things. It was interesting to watch him problem solve by adjusting the weight/size of the clay ball he was flinging so he could achieve the distance he desired.

Review Of Catapult Kit
Posted 5/2/2007 by John Poerschke
Rating: 3

The kit was fine. We had one problem. The catapult arm was fabricated out of a piece of wood that had a wood knot (darker wood) right where the arm hit the cross bar. My son and I tried the catapult and the arm snapped right at the wood knot, just like a baseball bat that got hit by a fastball on the wood knot. Needless to say, we were distressed since we needed the catapult for a school project. I ended up using one of my wife's wooden spoons and a replacement catapult arm.
