We got Svetochka’s Bow and arrow set…

Sveta’s takedown bow…

Svetochka wanted her own bow and arrow to learn with. Mine is way to much for her as Svetochka is a sweetpea and delicate, compared to this grouchy bear!

So we purchased a child’s bow and arrow at around 12 to 15 pounds of pull. It is perfect for her, yet now I have to gather finger gloves and such. She will tear up her hands/fingers learning to shoot. I was not attentive enough to that issue…

Bear is smart, as he trains Sweetpea!

Now a very important part of the whole thing is what arrow does she use to practice with?

Yes an arrow with a huge sucker end. An arrow that does not easily stick a hole in me or anything else!

Sveta tried them out against a steel door of ours and she had so much fun. It was nice to see the smile on her face. Every time the arrow smacked the steel door and stuck, she would tell me how powerful and perfect her bow and arrow was!

I just love my sweetpea, life is perfect with her…

PS: In the Tiny Russian Village, Sveta  will be able to practice all she wants…

I hope I survive! 😉

  1. Josep – they still have those exactly the same and I looked at them. Just too basic and as you said no quills! Sveta would be happy with those also! But, I decided to live dangerously and give her a real bow to learn on. She is happy and that means I am happy!

  2. I remember having at least one of these sets as a kid back when I lived in China, except the colors weren’t too realistic, and the ‘arrows’ were merely plastic rods with a simple suction cup on one end and nothing else on the other, making them look like tiny toilet plungers with very long handles (can’t remember the dimensions). The bow itself had a hole in the middle through which the ‘arrows’ were loaded in and then launched.
    The ‘arrows’ worked very well on the smooth walls in the house I lived in. When we moved to the USA in 2005 I remember how disappointed I was when they didn’t play well with the relatively bumpier “popcorn walls”.
