Best Beyblades: NZ buying guide

In this Beyblade buying guide, we explore the top contenders and help you find the right Beyblade for any occasion.

Last updated: 11 January 2024

Just like Pokémon and Mario Cart, we’ve always loved toys that spark friendly competition. Beyblades are no different. Designed in Japan back in the early 2000s, it’s all about creating an epic battle of spinning tops. To make them extra fun, they’re made up of three parts: an energy layer, a forge disc, and a performance tip. You just assemble the pieces, place it on the launcher, let it rip, and launch it into the Beyblade stadium. The aim is to strategise and knock opponents out — the last Beyblade spinning wins the round. 

Whether you're a seasoned Beyblader or looking to buy for an enthusiast, you've landed in the right arena. In this Beyblade buying guide, we explore the top contenders and help you find the right Beyblade for any occasion.

Key Beyblade accessories

What’s the difference between a good spin and a legendary battle? The right accessories. Here’s everything you need to add an extra layer of excitement:

1. Beyblade stadiums (or arenas)

Instead of playing on the floor at home, a proper Beyblade arena sets the stage for epic clashes. It's an enclosed area where Beyblades can spin, clash, and compete against each other. Beyblade arenas come in various shapes and sizes, but they generally have a circular or octagonal shape with a shallow, concave surface.

2. Beyblade launchers

A Beyblade launcher is a special tool used to launch or "rip" a Beyblade into a spinning battle. It typically has a handle and a cord that you pull to send the Beyblade spinning into the arena. The launcher helps give the Beyblade the speed and power it needs to compete against another Beyblade in a battle.
