The 2018 Beyblade Burst Word Championship will be held in Paris on November 3 as part of Kidexpo. Organized by Sunrights and supported by TOMY and Hasbro, the competition will include Beyblade Burst champions from 24 different countries ranging in age from 8 to 13. The kids will compete head to head using Beyblade spinning tops.

The Beyblade franchise, originally created by TOMY in 1999, is based on traditional Japanese battling tops called “Bei-Goma.” In addition to the toy line, Beyblade has inspired three seasons of an animated TV series.
