The bow is fine for left/right handed users and is not too tough to pull. Some kids will have to work out a bit before they get the strength, but this should come with practice. You have to develop muscles to shoot well.
The bow appears well made and easy to string. In spite of the small size NEVER dry fire without an arrow. The bow comes with two arrows and they are pretty bad. The faux feathers do not make for a stable flight. You can try to bend them into place, but they are really poor and suitable for getting started at best. A few better arrows later and you'll really see what even this simple bow can manage. A good arrow is every bit important as the bow.
The target is laughable. It's just a printed bit of cardboard, but what did you expect? Likewise, the arm guard is also very poor. These extras are to help sell the bow and you'll eventually toss them.
Now: To get started go to Home depot and buy some hay (bails/cubes) and stack them. This is a good target backing and will be easy on the arrows. A target with a bullseye is not even needed. First let the child learn to hit the hay and only later do you graduate to actual pin-point targeting. This will all go better if you invest in a few proper arrows. I can shoot and even I had trouble as these arrows don't fly all that well.
BOTTOM LINE-You're buying a good starter bow here and its worth what you pay, but the rest is mostly useless window dressing.
Finally: BE SAFE. This is NOT A TOY. Even the lesser arrows will go right through a person with deadly results. No one should be anywhere near the target area. Always stand behind the shooter.
In my youth, Every two years our extended family would have a family reunion. We have a BIG family, and often hired people to come to the reunion and hold classes or host events for the family members. There was always this little old lady that came, we called her "snowy" because of her white hair, and she was hired to teach us Archery. She professionally taught archery to kids at summer camps, so she always showed up with 6 targets, 12 bows, and dozens or arrows. I went through her class so many times, I felt qualified to teach my own children, so I bought this bow. It is exactly like what she used to teach us with.
This bow if perfect for teaching children (12yrs and older) how to use a bow. It is not a re-curve, or a compound bow, but the principles of archery are the same. This bow is perfect for teaching kids about stance, aiming, release, and constancy of technique.
It's a simple bow, solid fiberglass with plastic ends and a molded rubber grip. I've seen these bows last for years and years. This one looks to be able to do the same.
