The Faire Tyme Bow and Arrow

The Faire Tyme Cross Bow.

Cross Bow

The Faire Tyme Cross Bow uses the same bow as available above as the bow and arrow. You can use the bow separately as a bow, or in the frame as a cross bow. Kids go absolutely crazy over this toy, but it is probably too expensive for museum gift shop use. It comes with one arrow, but arrows are available separately.

Notice the bone attached to the point to make it blunt, and the feathers going in
opposite direction, used to slow the arrow down for safety. NOTE Wisconsin Historic
Society Museum at Madison has found evidence that similar arrows without feathers were
used to hit birds, called simply, bird arrows.
