Despite my warnings my younger son (5) used it without the inner-arm wrist guard it came with and got a nice stingy slap of the bow string, so be careful to wear long sleeves or the guard. Also, the bow does not come with any sort of instructions, make sure you know which hand to let go ;)
The arrows have one "feather" that has a different color; like all of bows and arrows, the different-colored feather (white in our case), also called 'index feather', should point to the outside of the shelf of the bow, away from limb: the arrow will swish along the arrow rest guided by the bow limb, and if there is a feather pointing toward the limb or the shelf then either the feather get ripped out pretty quickly or the arrow will not shoot straight.
We are really enjoying this bow, as it is fun enough for me to use, and not too stiff so that the kids can use it, too.
A related performance evaluation would be to NOT use fiberglass arrows with their typical stiffer fletches (wings/feathers), but get a similarly priced poplar arrow with synthetic feather fletches. The stiffer fletches cause the arrow to bounce off the bow as it passes the hand grip and take on a nose-dive looking flight that doesn't level out until well past the distance of a kid sized range. That flight pattern means the mass of the arrow is not behind the head, so it will do a lot of bouncing off the target. Some of those fiberglass arrows also have a head that fits over the shaft so it's wider than the shaft and gets stuck in the target when pulling the arrow out.
This bow reminds me a little of the ones we used in gym class at school. Yes, I am so old that we had archery in gym class when I was a kid! I don't know how we survived it, but as far as I know no one lost an eye or a limb or any major organs.
We did purchase a couple extra arrows, but my wife picked them up locally, so I'm sorry I can't recommend an arrow set here on Amazon. She did say that she got the shortest arrow available, and they were the exact length of the arrows that came with this bow, so maybe that will help.
My son has been asking for a bow for quite some time, but he asks for lots of things, so we didn't want to shell out for a nice bow not knowing if he would use it once and put it down. This bow set was the perfect price for such an experiment, and the quality was good enough that he could get a feel for how a real bow works. Turns out he really enjoys it, and it gets him away from the tablet, which I really enjoy.
I bought the block jr. too. Arrows penetrate easily.
Only bad part is the fletching. We shot A LOT and the fletching started to wear out. Replacement arrows aren't too pricey, but be aware you will need them if you plan on shooting a lot.
Also fun for adults. My brother and brother-in-law both had fun shooting with us!
