This is a functional, fan-made replica set of the Merida bow, quiver, and arrows, available as seen in the animated film. The rocks and disc are all made of lightweight materials, so the performance of the bow is negligibly affected. The disc is attached with a leather cord, so it can be removed if desired. The celtic bear scroll work is hand drawn and is guaranteed to "pop" more than any other Merida bow out there! Also, the curves and shape of the bow are the most screen-accurate there is.
The quiver is made of 2" abs pipe, with leather parts, and hand drawn celtic decals matching the bear decals on the bow. The arrows are not made with the intent of being shot. They are meant to be props. The set comes with 3 arrows, one of which will have a foam arrowhead, for photos and posing. The other two are meant to serve as "fillers".

ABOUT OUR PRODUCTS
-The weight option refers to the draw weight of the bow. Draw weight refers to the resistance or strength of the bow when pulling the string back. Not sure which draw weight to get? If you have little to no experience, or simply want a “fun” bow, get something lighter, in the 20-25 or 25-30 lbs draw, if it’s available. If you have a little more experience, or feel strong, try the 30-35 lbs. We recommend not getting the 45-55lb option unless you are very experienced and have the necessary strength to draw this bow reliably.
Wondering what we mean when we say con-safe? If you order the 0 (Con-safe) lb version of the bow, it will be made so it is already “bent” and is paired with a weak elastic cord, offering negligible functionality. This will give you a prop that at least “looks” like you are carrying proper bow, rather than just carrying around a bow that is unstrung or a sad, tiny one that you got from the costume store. Please know the rules of the event you may be attending, as this still may not qualify. In those cases, going completely string free should work.
Right or Left-Handed
-All of our bows are ambidextrous, except for the ones with a wooden riser (Speedy, Hawkeye, etc). You can shoot right or left handed with any of them!
-Not sure what arrows to use? Well, since most of our bows come without arrow rests, you'll want an arrow that is two inches longer than your normal draw length so that the tip will remain extended past your hand, even when drawn back. The average length is 28 inches, so going with 30 inches is a pretty safe bet. Also, make sure to get arrows rated for the draw weight of bow purchased. Note: the arrows we sell are intended to only be used as props.
-Normally, we don't have problems shipping overseas, except for the occasional delay as the package travels between countries.
-AUSTRALIANS: if it says you can't purchase because of shipping settings, please message us and we'll help you. The reason this happens is because Australia restricts packages to a max length of 42 inches (most of our bows are longer than that). We'll make adjustments to the settings for you. In this case, please pay via Paypal, or we won't be able to ship a product to you.
