Considered by many to be the most powerful and destructive of all the siege engines, the trebuchet took many forms throughout the Medieval world, hurling huge rocks and giant fireballs at (and into) castles. This model, based on the Warwolf, is a tabletop working replica of a trebuchet made in the 13th Century.

This kit lets you build the replica with accurate historic details such as the pegged joints, a leather pouch used for the load, and a wooden box for weights. It's capable of hurling a ball of soft modeling clay (included) over 20 feet! Add this to your battle scene, use it as a school experiment for math or science, or just have fun making it and seeing what it can do! Adjust the weight, angle, lengths, etc. for a more interesting experiment!

Easy to assemble. All pieces are pre-cut and drilled. Requires scissors and white or wood glue. Complete, clear instructions are included. Once assembled, this wooden Trebuchet measures approximately 18" long x 7" wide x 26" tall.

Awarded three stars (the highest rating for a toy in Canada!) by The Canadian Toy Testing Council in 2007.

Requires scissors and a ruler (SOLD SEPARATELY).

These 200 planks will give you plenty of versatility in the amazing things you can build! Includes the booklet of building techniques with 40 illustrations and photographs. Kapla Construction Blocks are made for people all over the world, so there are no words. Pictures tell the whole story!

Kapla’s long and thin planks are based on the progressions of the uneven numbers 1:3:5. Three thicknesses for one width and five widths for one length. This ratio between bricks and stones and beams and planks now opens a whole new way of building. With these identical planks, the builder can construct with the precision of artwork, and the stability of stones. The use of identical unfixed pieces develops the child’s aptitude for organizing elements in a 3-dimensional space and allows them to discover and sharpen their manual ability in relation to objects. Kapla helps the child to understand the fundamental issues of geometry, physics and technology. It also introduces them to the world of art, and to the universe of shapes and volumes, while developing concentration and a feeling of balance.

Winner of the Dr. TOY Best Toy award in 2006!
