Okay
Bottom line: This is a toy built with my kids and they enjoyed it. It would not hold up to repeated abuse from them. It does not go very far (we were able to hit a target at 5 ft). It is a good introduction, but if you are expecting a real ballista, this isn't it.

Good learning tool in need of quality upgrade.
I agree with Trish. (Bought in Erina, Australia for grandson to build with father.) A good learning tool for under-10s, but does not perform well as a toy. Dart needs a smooth launch sleeve. No manual for the alternative builds.

Not well designed
My son got part way through building and had to quite. The gear binds and doesn't turn freely like it should. Both dad and grandpa (an engineer) looked at it and concluded the same thing. Box shows alternate builds but you have to come to the website to get the plans. They should be included in the box.

Not worth the time.
After spending hours of building, it barely works.

neat but didn't work well
Neat toy but hard to put together. The two hardest steps were 7 and 26. In step 7 the metal rod does not stay into the frame so you have to push it back in all the time. In step 26, you have to hold several pieces together while lining up the wheels and getting the rubber bands to stay in place. After all that the darts only go about 4 inches away if you are lucky. The rubber band used to hold the launch handel down is too loose so we had to double it.
If this is for future engineer students, please redesign so kids can actually use it after spending hours building and don't feel like they wasted their time.
