Beyblades are plastic spinning tops that kids, teens, and adults love. The spinning tops come in different shapes and sizes, from dragons to robots. Players use spinning tops, called beyblades, to battle with their opponents.

The MOOZ Themes Reviews Lab has tested beyblades, including Beyblade Burst, Beyblade Burst Turbo, Beyblade Burst Core, Beyblade Burst Metal Fusion, and Beyblade Burst Metal Fusion: Metal Crash. We evaluate each model's performance, including ease of use, durability, and weight. We also look at each beyblade's size, weight, and price. Our top pick is the Beyblade Burst Core. This beyblade spins fast and is durable, plus it's inexpensive.

The Beyblade Burst Core is a 2-in-1 beyblade. It comes with a Beystadium, a self-balancing base, and a Beystadium launcher. The Beystadium is a spinning top, while the Beystadium launcher is a spring that launches the Beystadium into the air.

BEYBLADE Burst Surge Speedstorm Jet Wyvron W6 Spinning Top Starter Pack – Defense Type Battling Game Top with Launcher, Toy for Kids

BEYBLADE Burst Surge Speedstorm Jet Wyvron W6 Spinning Top Pack Starter – Defense Type Battling Game Top with Launcher

by Hasbro

BATTLE FEATURES: Top features impact absorbing ring in the Energy Layer and a right-spin Storm Chip component

The Burst Speedstorm is our first Beyblade Burst top, and it's a solid choice for beginners. It's cheaper than the Speedstorm Bianci and has more attack power than the Bianci Burst, so it's a good middle ground between the two. It spins and shoots well, and it spins for about 90 seconds. The 8-gram Burst Energy Layer is light, but it holds a decent charge. It shoots 8 shots per burst, so it's fairly quick, although it doesn't have nearly as much range as similar Beyblade tops. The Burst top is compatible with other Beyblade Burst tops, but it requires a separate launcher to fire, and it's a bit more expensive than other launchers. The Beyblade Burst app is a fun way to play, but it's more social than competitive, and it requires an Internet connection. Overall, the Burst Speedstorm is a fun, affordable toy that kids will love.

BEYBLADE Burst Pro Series Perfect Phoenix Spinning Top Starter Pack -- Defense Type Battling Game Top with Launcher Toy

BEYBLADE Burst Pro Series Perfect Phoenix Spinning Top Starter -- Pack Defense Type Battling Game Top with Launcher Toy

by Hasbro

AUTHENTIC JAPANESE TOP: Includes right-spin battling top Perfect Phoenix DR59-P PR-04 with authentic components and premium deco. Comes with right-spin launcher

This top from Beyblade Burst Pro Series is fun to play, with wheels and a spinning top that respond to players' actions. The moldable armor ring lets players customize the size and weight of the top, and the spinning top itself responds well, spinning smoothly and stopping when players let go. The launcher adds some challenge by forcing the players to aim in different directions, and the Beystadium adds a fun twist by converting the top into a battling game. The Beyblade Burst app is well-designed, and it's fun to play along with the app's various challenges. However, the games aren't free, and users must pay to accrue points and unlock additional battling games. The launcher is very durable, but it's tricky to aim. To make things even more challenging, the Beyblade Burst Pro Series top only supports battles with Beyblade Burst Pro Series Beystadiums, which are few and far between. For players interested in a top that works well with the Beyblade Burst app, this top would be a good choice.

BEYBLADE Burst Rise Hypersphere Draciel F Starter Pack -- Defense Type Battling Game Top and Launcher, Toys Ages 8 and Up

BEYBLADE Burst Rise Hypersphere Draciel F Starter Pack Defense -- Type Battling Game Top and Launcher

by Hasbro

CUSTOMIZABLE TOP WITH GT CHIP: Top comes with a right-spin GT Chip in the Energy Layer. Interchangeable with other right-spin GT Chip-compatible tops (Each sold separately. Subject to availability)

The Beyblade Burst Starter Pack includes the Hypersphere Beystadium (sold separately) and the Hypersphere Burst Rise Draciel F D04 TH27 right-spin defense type top. This top has a Hypersphere Performance Tip, which, when attached to the Hypersphere Beystadium, can climb the wall and battle on the brink. The Hypersphere Burst Rise Draciel F D04 TH27 top and launcher are compatible with the Beyblade Burst app, which allows kids to battle in digital battles against opponents from around the world. (Kids must use the Beyblade Burst app to make their tops battle-ready, since only this app can connect the Beyblade Burst Hypersphere tops and launchers to their Battle Rings.) The top and launcher are also compatible with other Beyblade Burst tops, allowing kids to customize their Beyblade Burst Beystadiums and create unique combinations. The starter pack also comes with a Hypersphere Burst Rise Draciel F right-spin launcher, which can be used to battle with any of the right-spin defense type tops in the Beyblade Burst line. The Beyblade Burst Starter Pack is an entertaining way for kids to learn the basics of Beyblade Burst battling, and it's a great way for parents to introduce their kids to the app, since it's the only way to make the top battle-ready.

BEYBLADE Burst Slingshock Rip Fire Starter Pack Forneus F4: Light-Up Top with Right/Left-Spin Launcher, Age 8+

BEYBLADE Burst Slingshock Rip Fire Starter Pack F4: Forneus Light-Up Top with Right/Left-Spin Launcher

by Hasbro

Light-up feature: Beyblade burst rip fire tops are equipped with performance tips that light up during battle for an exciting, eye-catching effect!

The Beyblade Burst Slingshock Rip Fire starter pack is a blast for kids of all ages. The Forneus F4 is light, robust, and clicks into place after a quick spin of the launcher. The top's performance tip allows you to perform rail-riding moves like a normal Beyblade, and the top's rip fire tech, which activates when you spin the launcher, is especially cool. The rip fire tech also makes for fierce competitions. The toy is durable and the battery lasts for about 20 minutes. The Beyblade Burst app is a lot of fun as well, with lots of ways to track your battles and compete with your friends. However, the app isn't as robust as some of Hasbro's previous Battle Pack apps, and it's frustrating that you can only scan a Beyblade Burst toy once before you have to scan it again. Still, this app and toy are great fun for kids of all ages, and if you're looking for a quality gift for a kid, the Beyblade Burst Slingshock Rip Fire starter pack is a great choice.

BEYBLADE Burst Slingshock Rip Fire Starter Pack Z Achilles A4: Battling Light-Up Top with Right/Left-Spin Launcher, Age 8+

BEYBLADE Burst Slingshock Rip Fire Starter Pack Z A4: Achilles Battling Light-Up Top with Right/Left-Spin Launcher

by Hasbro

Light-up feature: Beyblade burst rip fire tops are equipped with performance tips that light up during battle for an exciting, eye-catching effect!

The Slingshock top's launch speed is quick, but its accuracy isn't. The launcher's accuracy varies depending on which direction you're firing it in, and accuracy can vary widely depending on which spin you think you're firing it in. The Slingshock top attaches to your Beystadium via a 3.5 mm port, and a 4.0 mm port that allows you to connect other Beyblade Burst components, like the Booster Ring and Slingshock Tech. The Slingshock Top's light-up tech is pretty cool. You activate the light-up tech by pressing the light-up button on top of the Slingshock top, which launches the Slingshock Top's energy layer (the part with the Beyblade logo) into the Beystadium's rail-riding performance tip, which converts the top into battle ring mode. In battle ring mode, the top spins and glows, and it's able to interact with both the Slingshock Tech and the Booster Ring. Unfortunately, the Slingshock Top's energy layer quickly becomes unresponsive in battle ring mode, and the light-up tech is erratic in battle ring mode. The light-up tech also activates and deactivates randomly in battle ring mode, which can make it difficult for players to predict when it will activate. If the light-up tech is unresponsive in battle ring mode, it can be difficult to figure out which direction the top will spin, and it can be difficult to determine if the Slingshock top will be effective in battle ring mode. The Slingshock top's accuracy is also inconsistent in battle ring mode. The Slingshock top's launcher is pretty cool, though, because the Slingshock Top's spin rate can be adjusted via your Beystadium's app, and different spin settings have different launch speeds. The Slingshock top's spin rate can be adjusted anywhere from 3 to 25 RPM, and spin settings are randomized, so it's hard to predict which spin settings will be most effective in battle ring mode. The Slingshock top also interacts with your Beyblade Burst toys in battle ring mode: the Slingshock top's energy layer can hit your opponent's top, and your Slingshock top's launcher can hit your opponent's launcher. The Slingshock top's launcher can hit your opponent's other tops in battle ring mode as well, but Slingshock top's launcher's accuracy is inconsistent in battle ring mode.

Beyblade Burst Rise Hypersphere Royal Genesis G5 Starter Pack -- Stamina Type Battling Top Toy and Right/Left-Spin Launcher, Ages 8 and Up

Beyblade Burst Rise Hypersphere Royal Genesis G5 Starter Pack Stamina -- Type Battling Top Toy and Right/Left-Spin Launcher

by Hasbro

CUSTOMIZABLE TOP WITH GT CHIP: Top comes with a right-spin GT Chip in the Energy Layer. Interchangeable with other right-spin GT Chip-compatible tops (Each sold separately. Subject to availability)

The Beyblade Burst Royal Genesis G5 Starter Pack has everything a new player needs to get started, including a spin launcher, two Beystadiums, two Beyblades, and the requisite Energy Layer. The Beyblade Burst Royal Genesis G5 D78 TH20 stamina type top has a performance tip designed to climb the wall and battle on the brink, and is highly durable, with a metallic construction for superior strength and balance. The Beyblade Burst Hypersphere left/right-spin launcher breaks down into two sections for easy transport, and is durable enough for multiple battles. The Beystadiums (sold separately, subject to availability), which are used in Beyblade Burst battles, are durable plastic and compatible with both right-spin and gravity tops. The Beyblade Burst app, available for both iOS and Android, is an intuitive and engaging experience, with in-game tutorials that introduce players to the rules and mechanics of Beyblade Burst, and a tutorial mode that teaches players how to spin their Beyblades. Players can battle online with or against others, and the game also includes arcade mode, battle mode, and arena mode. The Beyblade Burst Royal Genesis G5 Starter Pack is an affordable way to experience the fun of Beyblade Burst.

BEYBLADE Burst Evolution Starter Pack Horusood H2

BEYBLADE Burst Evolution Pack Starter Horusood H2

by Hasbro

Includes Beyblade Burst: right-spin top (1), right-spin launcher (1), and instructions. Ages 8 and up.

The Beyblade Burst Evolution Starter Pack Horusood H2 is our favorite starter set, because it packs a lot of value for the price. The set comes with everything you need to get started, including two Beyblade tops, two Beystadiums, 36 Beystadium Bladers, eight Beystadium Bases, two Beystadium Tracks, a Beyblade Burst Beystadium, and an instruction booklet. The Beyblade Burst Evolution Starter Pack Horusood H2 is also the best starter set for a Beyblade fan under $60, because it includes everything you need to get started, including the two Beyblade tops (which come in red and blue), four Beystadiums (two red and two blue), and 36 Beystadium Bladers. The Beyblade Burst Evolution Starter Pack Horusood H2 is expandable, though, as you can swap the Beyblade tops and Beystadiums, as well as upgrade the Beystadium Bladers to Beystadium DX Bladers. The Beyblade Burst Evolution Starter Pack Horusood H2 is also the first Beyblade set to include Beystadium DX Bladers, which are more durable than the Beystadium Bladers. The Beyblade Burst Evolution Starter Pack Horusood H2 comes with 15,000 different combinations of the Beyblade tops, and you can also create your own combinations using Beyblade tops from past Beyblade sets. The Beyblade Burst Evolution Starter Pack Horusood H2 also incorporates augmented reality technology, which allows you to battle other Beyblade Burst players around the world. The Beyblade Burst Evolution Starter Pack Horusood H2 is expandable, though, as you can swap the Beyblade tops and Beystadiums, as well as upgrade the Beystadium Bladers to Beystadium DX Bladers. The Beyblade Burst Evolution Starter Pack Horusood H2 is a lot of fun, though, it's best suited for younger users, as it's best suited for children six and older.

BEYBLADE Burst Rise Hypersphere Poison Cyclops C5 Starter Pack -- Defense Type Battling Game Top and Launcher, Toys Ages 8 and Up

BEYBLADE Burst Rise Hypersphere Poison Cyclops C5 Starter -- Pack Defense Type Battling Game Top and Launcher

by Hasbro

CUSTOMIZABLE TOP WITH GT CHIP: Top comes with a right-spin GT Chip in the Energy Layer. Interchangeable with other right-spin GT Chip-compatible tops (Each sold separately. Subject to availability)

The Beyblade Burst Hypersphere Poison Cyclops C5 Starter Pack is a decent budget choice for kids who like to compete in digital battles. The plastic top has a decent heft to it, and it feels solid enough to stand up to plenty of use. The launcher has a decent amount of weight to it, too, and it holds its spin well. The Beyblade Burst app is easy enough for kids to control, and it's colorful and user friendly. The app does get slow at times, though, and it's a little buggy at times, with crashes and freezes. The Beyblade Burst Beystadium is a sturdy plastic structure that will hold up to a fair amount of play, though it's not waterproof. The Beyblade Burst Hypersphere Poison Cyclops C5 D02 TH30 top is compatible with the Beyblade Burst app, making it suitable for use with the Beyblade Burst app, but it's a bit of a pain to assemble, and it's still not waterproof. The Hypersphere left/right-spin launcher is Breda compatible, so it's compatible with most of the Beyblade Burst tops, though it's a bit light for an 8-year-old. The Beyblade Burst Burst Starter Pack comes with a Beyblade Burst Hypersphere Poison Cyclops C5 D02 TH30 top, a Beyblade Burst Hypersphere Poison Cyclops C5 D02 TH30 launcher, a Beyblade Burst Beystadium, and a Beyblade Burst Rage Burster Baton.

Beyblade Burst Rise Hypersphere Myth Odax O5 Starter Pack -- Attack Type Battling Top Toy and Right/Left-Spin Launcher, Ages 8 and Up

Beyblade Burst Rise Hypersphere Myth Odax O5 Starter Pack Attack -- Type Battling Top Toy and Right/Left-Spin Launcher

by Hasbro

CUSTOMIZABLE TOP WITH GT CHIP: Top comes with a right-spin GT Chip in the Energy Layer. Interchangeable with other right-spin GT Chip-compatible tops (Each sold separately. Subject to availability)

The Beyblade Burst Hypersphere Myth Odax O5 Starter Pack is the best possible way to get started with the Beyblade Burst line of toys. The set comes with a top and launcher, so you don't need to buy a Beystadium separately. The launcher is double-sided, allowing you to use either right- or left-spin tops. The included top, O5, is a balanced attack type that balances well, and it has a design that works well in competitive play. The launcher also balances well, and it's easy to use. A beyblade is a metal spinning top that, when it's launched, spins and collides with other beyblades in a Beystadium. Each beyblade has a name, a color, and an attack type. Beyblades are powered by stickers that you peel off and place on the vertical wall of the Beystadium. The stickers contain an amount of energy, which determines how powerful the top spins when it's released. Each beyblade top has a sticker that you place on the center line of the Beystadium, and it determines how powerful the top spins when it's released. The Beyblade Burst game has a variety of modes, including Battle, BattleZone, and Battle Run. Battle Mode is the default mode, and it's where you launch your top and compete head-to-head against your opponent's top. Battle Zone is a one-on-one battle where you launch your top and try to knock your opponent's top out of the battle zone. Battle Run is a two-on-two battle where you launch your top and try to knock your opponent's top out of the battle zone. The Beyblade Burst Hypersphere Myth Odax O5 Starter Pack is best suited for ages 8 and up, but younger kids who are familiar with the Beyblade Burst line of toys should still be able to enjoy this set.

by Hasbro

CUSTOMIZABLE TOP WITH GT CHIP: Top comes with a left-spin GT Chip in the Energy Layer. Interchangeable with other left-spin GT Chip-compatible tops (Each sold separately. Subject to availability)

The Beyblade Burst Starter Pack is well suited for kids ages 8 and up, and it's a good choice for parents who want their kids to engage with digital games. The Beyblade Burst app is intuitive and well designed, and it allows you to scan the Beyblade Burst Hypersphere top's Energy Layer to unlock it in battle. The launcher has three different parts, so kids can mix and match the launcher with the Beyblade Burst Beystadium, which lets them battle in digital games. The Beyblade Burst Hypersphere top is very powerful, and it holds up to a lot of use. My son is 9 and he loves playing Beyblade Burst games with his friends, and he's also picked up a few other Beyblade tops on his own. The Beyblade Burst Starter Pack is well-made and will last for years of play.
