Why not pop it on your desk at work and fire the clay balls at anyone who annoys you? Or use it at home to get your partner's attention? Combining weaponry, history and lots of fun, this Da Vinci Catapult is a glorious gift!
This a is a lovely item and an unusual gift. My daughter has recently been enjoying woodwork classes at school and I thought this would be the perfect gift to add to her christmas stocking to keep her interested. It is a solid piece once constructed and she was able to assemble it by herself. It is great to link the science with the construction, especially as it links to the KS3 curriculum.

Arrived in good condition. Can't really review the contents yet, as it is a Christmas present for one of my grandsons. I am sure he will be pleased with it.

Lovely product. Fairly easy to build and the clay is easily fired across the room by the catapult. Lots of fun and a constant point of interest among friends who come over.
