Is It Normal for Adults to Enjoy Beyblades?
Beyblades are often thought of as being for children. From competitive leagues, to creative christmas gifts, beyblades and beyblades stadiums make excellent gifts. One question we hear all the time is whether or not it’s “weird” for adults to be playing with beyblades. The answer to this question might actually surprise you!
Here are GameOver we are huge fans of beyblades, and have encountered many like-minded adults who find them fun and exciting. Although there are always people out there who think these are just toys for children, they are the same people who think movies, video games, and other hobbies are also for children. We are seeing more and more older teens and adults involved in bey leagues each year.
If you take a look at some youtube videos, there are tons of adult vloggers who are extremely into them! We even watched a twitch stream a few days ago that had a local community beyblade group which looked awesome!
Overall, it doesn’t matter what your age is, as long as you’re having fun and enjoying yourself, have at it!
Are Beyblades Safe For Young Children?
The other question we hear all the time, is whether their child is old enough to safely and enjoyably play with beyblades.
The answer to this question is a bit more complex, as it depends on your child’s maturity and interest levels. Some children are totally dis-interested with beys, and might even think it’s more fun to throw them across the room instead of play with them. Other parents might be worried that the spinning motion could damage their child’s fingers.
Luckily the spinning motion of the tops is not so fast that it causes any damage, but it’s still wise to be careful. Common sense goes a long way when dealing with the correct age to buy your child a top. We recommend following the manufacturers suggestions on the box, but only you can decide what age is right for your child, as no one personality is the exact same.
It’s often a good idea to buy something cheap at first before spending a lot of money on something that isn’t right for your child at that point in their life.
Another consideration is that these toys can be a choking hazard. Toddlers or other infants in the house can be exposed to small pieces of the bey, their launchers, or other accessories. It’s important to keep this in mind with any household object. Bey-blades can have multiple small pieces to keep an eye out for.
Overall, we do think that both children and adults can responsibly enjoy beyblades! There are so many leagues and official tournaments which have begun to spring up, so if you’re looking to take your game to the next level, or simply find like-minded individuals, we recommend checking those out!
