Catapults have been used for 1000’s of years and we just cannot get over how a design so basic can deliver such devastating effects. In honour of this incredibly cool piece of warfare we have found the VEX Catapult – a Catapult that you can build and control in your own home without the worry of destroying any cities.
This amazing construction set has all you need to build a catapult without the need of an army of engineers. This 100+ piece set is a fun and educational way to get your kids (or yourself) into the world of engineering and design. Each of the pieces easily snap into place without the need for any messy glue or tools making it even better for younger children. With a simple to follow guide, you should have a weapon of mass destruction constructed in no time. Once the design is complete you have yourself an amazing working catapult on wheels that you can use to take down not a real city but perhaps a much smaller Lego city. Pop one of the two balls into the basket, pull back the launching lever and fire!! This catapult can fire missiles up to ten feet and you can adjust the settings to really perfect your skill.
If for some unknown reason, you are not content with an awesome catapult then you will be happy to know that with this one kit, you can create three separate designs! A fully functional catapult, race car and a trike. What more could you want?! Oh, and just one more thing, each piece in this set can also be used with any other VEX set, so you can make even more.
