From 7 years old to 10 years old to (ahem) my age group these are easy to use and a lot of fun. My set came with 20 bows (10 yellow and 10 green), 20 suction-cupped arrows all of which are pink and 20 rubber bands to be used as the string portion. The color shouldn’t and doesn’t matter because even as I type this both my sons are having a blast testing each one out and neither of them commented on the color of anything; they just think they are extremely cool!
Setting up the rubber bands to the bow is simple; loop an end to the tab and run through the notch all the way to the other end which also mirrors the notch and tab. Just remember that if the rubber bands break they are easily replaced as you can easily get a bag of rubber bands at your local dollar store. Note of caution on the arrows is that the suction cup and the black notch can easily be removed so, be mindful of smaller children with these. If pulled back incorrectly and the black tab is pinched upon release the chance of the child getting snapped by the rubber band is extremely high; lesson learned numerous times by my eldest son. So far the longest shot has been a record 25 feet; my boys like making a competition out of everything and choose targets to shoot at. I must say that the accuracy of these is impressive when in comparison to how they are made.
These are great for indoor and outdoor play plus, perfect for party favors which these will be getting used for in my youngest son’s classroom for Halloween. I highly recommend these for stocking stuffers, birthday party favors, a family get together and to just have a bunch of fun with.
Update 10/31/16: These were a hit in my son’s class! We of course handed them out directly to the parents due to liability in a school setting. Had a couple left over for my kids to have fun with and these have held up strongly with nothing breaking so far. Disclosure: I received this bow and arrow set discounted from the store front Ginger’s Cool Stuff however; this in no way influenced my review. I chose to write this review and was under no obligation to do so. I only write honest reviews regardless of whether I purchased a product at full price, at a discount, or received it free.
