Kids having Target Practice
With Cross Bows
Saw Cut Hickory or Ash bow with one arrow. Extra arrows available on request. These toys are extremely good sellers, but due to the shortage of straight grained wood, supplies may be limited at certain times of the year.

The Faire Tyme Bow and Arrow
The Faire Tyme 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.
