BEYBLADE Review & Tutorial

Updated on December 6, 2015

Beyblades have become so popular that most toy stores can’t keep them on their shelves. Beyblades are spinning tops with character names that boys, and sometimes girls, collect, trade and spin. The winning Beyblade is the one that spins the longest. Kids are spinning Beyblades on the school yard, play dates and at home. My 8 year old son has become so enthralled with Beyblades that he requested that we write an article on the topic, so here it is. The following information was provided by my son.

To play the game you need:

  • 2 or more players
  • 2 or more Beyblades

  • Ripper - is threaded into the launcher and quickly pulled.

  • Launcher - after inserting the ripper into the launcher the Beyblade is attached.

  • Beystadium or smooth surface, blades can rip on most surfaces but not carpet or anything bumpy.

How the game is played:

Each player clicks their Beyblade into a launcher and aims Beyblade into an arena or other safe surface. For safety it is best to keep the spinning action on the floor to keep the spinning far away from the eyes since blades can pop up while spinning.

Players simultaneously announce “3,2,1….let it RIP”

The blade that spins the longest wins the battle, while spinning, the blades hit each other, making sounds and slowing the opponents beyblade down.

Beyblades Categories

  • Tornado Tops are taller beyblades which have a unique appearance.
  • Normal Beyblades such as Rock Aries Beyblade, can be taken apart to interchange with other normal Beyblades to make custom Beyblades.
  • Electro Beyblades light up, they’re larger and heavier which causes them to spin for a shorter amount of time yet they still are able to win battles.
  • Key Chain Beyblades are full functioning Beyblades that are smaller in size.
  • Remote Control Beyblades use a ripcord and press buttons to control the Beyblade. The Extreme Top System IR Spin Control IR Spin Control Meteo L-Drago is a set that includes a remote control ripper.

Pegasus Battle Set Metal Masters - REVIEW

Pegasus is an attack type Beyblade that is designed to move around a lot. This set includes all legends of Pegasus including Pegasus; storm Pegasus, galaxy Pegasus and cyber Pegasus. This set comes with 2 rippers one is a string riper and one riper that goes into the pointer to rip.

Storm Pegasus has grey metal. On the TV show galaxy Pegasus is no longer storm Pegasus, the main character is Gingka.

Beyblade Metal Fusion Aries - REVIEW

Rock Aries is a defense Beyblade; which means it does not move around as much as others. It has three spinning spikes connected to it's spin track. The top of this Beyblade is purple, the metal is grey and black on the spin track and black on the spikes the tip is black.

Although this Beyblade may not seem like much in the box it is a great fighting top.
