The catapult is one of the most effective weapons in military history, and catapults still have huge appeal today – and it’s easy to see why! What’s more fun than to be able to launch objects? Being able to build and create your very own catapult and then launch objects of course!

This 100+ piece VEX Catapult set lets you put together the type of firing device that the ancient Greeks would be proud of! This kit is a fantastic way to teach children about construction, cause and effect, variable shot power, kinetic energy and mechanics, all while having quite a lot of fun recreating battles and destroying the enemy! Each of the pieces easily snap into place without the need for any messy glue or tools making it even better for younger children. 

When built, the VEX Catapult is a mini powerhouse that is able to shoot up to a very impressive 10 feet. Using the fully adjustable winch, this fantastic set allows you to control the projectiles distances, honing your technique as you play. And this set comes complete with two balls to perfect your most amazing firing techniques!

The VEX Catapult set also gives you two alternative builds including a cool formula 1 racing car and a fun trike, so you’ll never get tired with this awesome build and play! And if that wasn’t enough, each piece in this set can also be used with any other VEX set – so the possibilities are endless!
