The Siege Tower was use by invading armies to breach the walls of the castle they were attacking. They varied in size and construction (some up to 135 feet tall!) but the one we have here is typical of the styles used from about 900 BC to the medieval times as attackers tried to get over the walls of a castle.
This incredibly sturdy tabletop model will give hours (years!) of reliable sieging around the house and back yard. Like all of our kits, this one is pegged for great strength and authenticity and will give you that cool siege feeling with the firing catapult on the top.
Age Rating: 14+ While the kit can be made by people younger than 14, (we think kids aged 9+ have the skills) it does launch a projectile, so is rated 14+. If used by people under 14, please make sure there is parental supervision for the launching.
