Catapult Castle


Catapult Castle

Defend your kingdom by slinging a boulder (ball) at invaders

By Bob Gilsdorf

When you roll a ball at this castle, it retaliates by slinging a Ping-Pong ball back at you! Catch the ball, block it with a homemade shield (a pot lid will do in a pinch), or knock it away with a cardboard sword. The castle is powered by a simple, rubber band-powered mechanism that’s easy to build but relatively durable. Kids will enjoy helping to build and paint this toy. Warning: When the catapult activates it can catch you by surprise!
