Introduce Children to Real Archery

Barnett Lil’ Banshee: Great Way to Intoduce Children to Real Archery

By: Kristen Monroe Women's Outdoor News

A child’s bike ride without training wheels, trip to the dentist and ride on the school bus are all memorable first moments for a mother. Nothing is as special to an outdoor enthusiast mother, like me, as the first time seeing her son shoot a bow successfully for his first time. Another milestone has passed for my five-year-old son, Maddex. It has been a summer full of accomplishments for him.

Last year the Easter Bunny brought him a toy long bow in his basket. The Easter Bunny had brought him a bunk bow and the arrows would slip off the rest and the arrow was impossible to nock. Needless to say, he was frustrated and never picked it up again. I was a bit skeptical to try another children’s bow until I pulled the Lil’ Banshee Compound Bow out of the box and got a good feel and look at it. It was Realtree Camo and came in a “ready to shoot” condition. The Lil’ Banshee compound bow features a new ambidextrous, steel reinforced, soft touch grip and tough fiberglass limbs. The Lil’ Banshee set also came with a multi-color target, 2 fiberglass target arrows, arm guard, finger tab and adjustable sight. The best part, this quality bow and starter kit retails for only $30.

    What is the draw weight and arrow length, is it adjustable?
