From Monty Python and the Quest for the Holy Grail, this hilarious plastic replica is ideal for bombarding friends, coworkers, and so-called "Arthur Kings".

My sister went to New York and all I got was this FANTASTIC trebuchet! My son and nieces (ages 8 and 9) have been playing with it for a week and it's held up just fine. It's sturdy, well constructed and works great. They've been having target practices with the farm animals. Even though the giggle-value alone makes it worth the price, it's a good toy, too.

Verified Purchase
This is just a simple little plastic toy that actually launches the included cows, sheep, and ducks several feet! Since my kids have seen the movie they really get into using this. The Wooden Rabbit is made of printed styrofoam, so it will stay in the packaging and out of the hands of my youngest child. The large cup on the Catapult can also be used to launch other small toys, and this may or may not be a good thing.

or, as in my case....2 (or more).

I just happen to know many people who could use one
and trebuchet's are hard to find; particularly if they are fitted out with livestock.

OK so this didn't add much to your knowledge of the product, BUT, know ye that these sell out and tend to acquire voluminous logs of back-orders at certain times of year (I had to wait months for mine).

And yes, it was worth it.

The catapult is fantastic and has pinpoint accuracy. You can take down a single squire from 150m away, guided only by a spotter.

However, only gave 3 stars durability for the Trojan Bunny. Not very durable when hit by cow projectiles. Should have built a large wooden badger instead.

This toy set was inspired by a scene in MONTY PYTHON AND THE HOLY GRAIL, a comedy film based on medieval history in England.

First, let us review the positive attributes of this toy, which are abundant and compelling. The catapult is made of sturdy plastic, and the plastic has a "thick feel" to it. On the horizontal bar at the top of the catapult is a decal (or painted on) reading, "YE OL' COWTAPULT." Where the wooden bars (actually made of plastic) of the catapult contact each other, what is painted on are silver hinges. In all, the catapult has ten silver hinges. These hinges are not actually used to connect the pieces of the catapult together (they are only simulated connections). Best of all, the cowtapult actually works. It propels the cows, sheep, and ducks at least five or six feet across the room, in a high arcing trajectory. The wheels are firmly attached to the axles. Each wheel is painted with four silver spokes. Each wheel also has 14 simulated nails, which stick out about one half a millimeter. The "motor" of the cowtapult is a rubber band, but it is a fabric-covered rubber band, much like the fabric-covered elastic bands that girls and women use to fasten their hair.

The catapult has fine details in the color. A crest or coat of arms is mounted on the right side and left side, configured from separate pieces of plastic, and the coat of arms is blue and white, and the coat of arms has picture of what appears to be a stylized drawing of a wolf. There are two flags, as mentioned above, and the flags are made of rubber, in order to prevent breaking. (If they were made of hard plastic, they would be expected to snap off.) The rubber flag poles each have a silver-painted tip, and the flags are painted pink on top and blue on the bottom.
