Legends Longbow Review (Zing)

What It Is

The Legends Longbow lets brave young heroes defend their land from the bad guys. It comes with two Zonic whistle arrows that make a loud whistling sound as they fly and one Zartz suction cup arrow that will stick to almost anything.

Much like Zing Toys' previous bow and arrow toys, launching the arrows is easy and safe. Current safety regulations prevent manufacturers from making traditional bows with a long string. Zing Toys solved that problem by adding elastic loops to the bow and placing hooks on the foam arrows. Hook an arrow onto the elastic loops, pull back, and let go. With a little bit of effort, the arrows can fly more than 125 feet. Kids can set up cans for target practice or shoot against a wall for bounce-back action.

Is It Fun?

The Legends Longbow gives kids all the competitive fun of shooting a bow and arrow but in a safe way. The "legends" theme of this bow and arrow set is designed to capture kids' fascination with fantasy play, from The Hunger Games to The Lord of the Rings as well as Brave. It's designed for a different kid than one who is just looking for a regular Zing bow and arrow set.

We were impressed with how well the arrows flew. We actually got our arrows to fly farther than 125 feet, but in order to do this, you have to pull the arrow back really far and exert some effort.

Who It’s For

Legends Longbow is for ages 8 and up.

What To Be Aware Of

Additional arrows are sold separately.

We recommend that adults supervise children when playing with the Legends Longbow. Set guidelines on what is an appropriate target—no aiming above the shoulders or below the waist, or at animals.
