This medieval weapon for kids is a wooden wonder lion shield. Robert the Bruce wooden shield is made of beech wood and has a cotton handle making it light to hold and play with. The shield in natural wood is intended for young knights and is great to play with as a cool wooden weapon.
This style of shield first appeared in the medieval period. It evolved from the larger kite shield – which gradually became smaller as head and leg protection became better. It is commonly referred to as a “Heater” shield because of its resemblance to the shape of an old flat iron.
