The Mangonel - a medieval siege engine

A gift for a boy or girl.  Build a working re-creation of a mangonel and experience the launch power of a medieval siege engine (catapult)! Catapults were used to hurl heavy stones to breach walls, launch missiles and even diseased carcasses in medieval times. Medieval Mangonels had a range of up to 400 meters, playing a central role in medieval battles.

A child will have endless fun building the catapult. Once it is completed, the catapult makes an impressive feature and actually works. Discover how the laws of physics can manifest such power!

An exciting and great value birthday or Christmas gift for boys & girls.
