Toys “R” Us is hosting Beyblade battle tournaments in all Toys “R” Us Canada locations, excluding Express stores. Beyblade is a modern twist to traditional Japanese battling tops called “bei-goma.” Pre-registration begins on September 14, and the tournament begins on October 6.

Each store allows for 32 participants to compete and be entered for a chance to win a custom animation cel from a Beyblade artist, a $1,000  Toys “R” US shopping spree, and other prizes. An assortment of Beyblade tops and licensed merchandise are awarded to 1st through 4th place winners.
