Clever design of the catapult.
Very inventive project that requires thinking and organization. And it's fun to get balls in the basket! It's not easy to do. It also requires finesse in aim and velocity.
My son got this one for his sister cause she loves basketball. She always throws the ball in a cup and she loves it on her desk to play with.
