Great idea to make this a toy. It was very frustrating to put it together. I expected tongue and groove type of assembly and not having to prop pieces in place and hope the glue dried fast enough to keep the piece in the correct position. I also thought it was pretty cheap quality to make the counter weight out of PAPER! The wood pieces claimed precision cut with accuracy, yet several of the dowels wouldn't fit through the holes and the upright pieces wouldn't fit into the notches. I expected a better quality product from Fat Brain Toys. I am so glad I thought to assemble this before giving it as a gift. That would have been a non-gift if I had expected them to assemble it!

This was smaller than expected. I did not see a size advertised (maybe I missed it). I did see a video of a completed kit, but I think it was for the other one, not this one. This is what I would call a "desk top" toy. Easy to assemble and it does work, but it is small and sightly cheesy. Purchased for a 12 year old boy. he likes it, I just hope it lasts a while.

Trebuchet Kit
Posted 8/9/2010 - RELATIVE

The Trebuchet kit was less interesting to my 8-year old nephew than I had thought it would be. The demographic data indicated that 8 years old was a good age for this toy. However, the assembly process was well beyond his manual dexterity level, so he lost interest in assembly. Two adults had to complete it. Once it was put together, it did not fling the included projectiles 10 feet... My nephew played with it for about half an hour and then moved on to other toys. I would not recommend this toy for 8 year olds with average dexterity.
The manufacturer's age recommendation is noted within the "Product Specifications" section.

A challenge for 9 year old boy

This model required more skill than my bright nine year old grandson was willing to invest. Actually was a bit of a challenge for me to assemble.
