Bow And Arrow For Kids

Updated on May 8, 2014

Bow And Arrow For Kids

A bow and arrow for kids would be a great present for your young Hunger Games fan, or any child interested in the sport of archery.

Archery is an ancient activity that allowed people to hunt for animals to provide food and materials necessary for survival. While some people still bow hunt, most of the time archery these days is for fun or sport.

Due to the popularity of The Hunger Games books and movie, youth archery sets have become very popular gift items for Christmas and birthdays. After reading the books, or seeing the movie, many kids and young adults have become interested in archery, especially girls. This is a great opportunity for kids to get involved in this great sport.

This is a good kids archery set for beginners. The reviews for the bow are very positive. From my own experience as a kid, two arrows is not going to be enough, though. I suggest buying more with the bow and arrow set. A great first set!

A great first compound bow for young kids. I like that different colors are available because that is usually a really popular feature on any kind of sport equipment. Two arrows will not be enough, so plan on buying some more. The manufacturer's website does not list an age range, but based on Amazon reviews and the draw weight, I would say ages 8 and up.

      Not immediately, no. The Orbit Tower has been oeenpd for the Olympics and Paralympic Games but the Olympic Park in which the Orbit is located, will then be closed for an extended period before reopening in 2013, with some parts not due until 2014. What the exact cost of Orbit Tower tickets will be then, has yet to be finalised.

      This is a good resource to compare. Maybe add in a "how to" video. Kids need it. Most parents don't know how to shoot an arrow, i expect.

      I used to have a toy bow and arrow set when I was young (plastic suckers on the arrows, you know the kind), but it did make me want to have a real set. Archery is something that more kids should learn, however they need to understand how to be responsible as well.

      I'd probably buy them a safer, padded toy set if they're too young to understand about safety rules yet. But yeah, it's cool for kids to learn about archery.
