It comes pre cut pieces of unfinished wood that could be stained, all the strings and bits are included. The only thing we had to get extra was wood glue. The glue is a necessity in order for it to work.
It does launch mini pom poms quite well. We were able use a marble but it nothing bigger.You do need to add a counter weight to the bucket.
It took him about an hour to put together as the directions were very easy to follow.
I would say this is a good project for 8 and up.
It's not made to be a toy rather as a working prop- meaning, it's not meant to beat on. Looks great on my office desk.
Overall these are fun kits, but make sure they have all the parts when they arrive. I'd give these kits 4 stars, they are fun, reasonably easy for a child to build (with a bit of adult supervision), and fun to use after building. I've taken one star off due to missing parts.
Update: The missing part was shipped to me at no cost and our trebuchet is now launching projectiles successfully!
