For safely discovering archery for fun between 5 to 10 metres. From 8 years old.Suitable for right-handers and left-handers.
A safe introduction to archery.
This is a wonderful product. We use this for our office staff and is an excellent tool for enhancing concentration
The quality of this product is excellent.
Ease of handling, ease of operation, good quality
This is great fun. Well built and good quality. The only downside is it only comes with two arrows and trying to get extra arrows is like looking for rocking horse ****
They are never in stock.
It's a great idea and really enjoyable, realistic archery experience for the family. However...
1. Only TWO arrows in the set??? Come on! This is mean in the extreme. You always shoot three or six arrows in the real thing. How much would it cost for just one extra in the box?
2. The arrows, have given all four of us several nasty fibreglass splinters just by picking them up. It's not just ours, either - it's happened on some owned by friends. These are invisible, painful shivers of glass which are near-impossible to get out. Either this needs sorting out, or put a warning on about handling them. I can't imagine what rubbing one of these splinters into your eye would do.
Kids and adults love it, pack / target works well.
Only 2 arrows, fibreglass splinters cause injury.
I bought this for my 7 year old daughter after she used one at her sports day! She hasn't got the full strength to use it properly at the moment but she has lots of fun trying! Very well made and great fun for all the family
The set is brilliant but only comes with two arrows. I have been keen to buy additional arrows suitable for set but they have never been in stock since we purchased the set.
bought this and an extra 4 arrows. Id expected the kit to have one of each colour arrow and the other four bought separately to be two of each. So I'd have 3 orange and 3 yellow. Nope. 2 orange in the kit and of the four ordered in addition... sent 3 orange and one yellow. giving a total of 5 orange and 1 yellow. Reallt frustrating. been all over the site looking for an option to email about swapping 2 out for yellow but I cant find anything. Its a shame as this kit with extra arrows is really great... just let down by mismatch on colours.
light weight. stows away easily. great fun
Only 2 arrows
Many years ago I was a pretty keen archer and decided it would be fun to get this for the kids (and me) to use in the garden. Our 9yo handles the bow fine but our 11yo finds the 20lb draw too much - so we got her a little 48" kids bow. As of early 2016 you get a small discount for buying the arrows in 4s, 6 arrows (from 2 in kit and 4 more bought) is a nice number for two archers to share. We have 10 arrows for breakages/loss while on holiday - but so far the arrows seem pretty tough and hard to lose
It is possible to consistently hit 7/8+ from 25m so I dont doubt the accuracy/ability of the kit - for kids at 5 to 10m its a brilliant test of skill
Only downsides (i) the storage case / target only holds two arrows, we bought a load of arrows and have to carry them seperately (ii) the bow string is quite coarse, it is definitely worth getting some cheap finger tabs
Seems robust, fun/challenge for all the family
Rough bow string tough on fingers
Great durable product for the whole family
This set comes with only 2 arrows.... WHY? As this is totally insufficient to play the game enjoyably. There are ,supposedly, extra arrows you can purchase but these ARE NEVER IN STOCK & haven't been for as long as I have been aware of the product. As soon as an arrow gets broken we will be down to 1 arrow....GREAT!!
AVOID THIS SET. IT IS INSUFFICIENT AS IT CURRENTLY IS BEING SOLD WHICH RUINS THE PLAYABILITY OF THE GAME.
TOO EXPENSIVE-NOT ENOUGH ARROWS-POOR AVAILABILITY
Thanks for your mail. The set only comes with two arrows to try to keep the price as low as possible, making archery accessible for as many people as possible. Obviously the more arrows we added the more expensive the kit would be. I'm sorry the arrows weren't in stock when you checked, they are now however, please see link below.
I hope this clears up your issues, if not please don't hesitate to contact me.

The tips of the arrows have "C" shaped plastic parts which the bow fits in. However, these plastic parts are quite weak! They are almost coming off - this is after 6 year old daugther & her dad played with it for the first time!!
I shall be contacting customer service
Great fun for both kids & adults
