TimetoPlayMag.com Ratings and Reviews
At TimetoPlayMag.com, we want to engage, inform and entertain our readers to give them the benefit of our knowledge, experience and the breadth of products we cover. We look at more than 10,000 new toys and children’s products every year, and our primary purpose is to help you make the best choices for the kids in your life.
Our goal is to give you the real story on what you’ll find when you bring a toy home. And we know that every kid and every family is different. That’s why we always say: “The hot toy is only hot if it’s hot for your child.”
Our editorial team has more than 100 years combined experience working in the toy industry. Our rating system ranks toys on 4 key criteria:
- Fun — Does it engage the child? Does it inspire imaginative play? Does it contribute to creative expression? Is it entertaining?
- Repeat Play OR Collectibility — Some toys are played with, some are collected. If we feel a toy is better suited for collectibility, we’ll rank it based on Collectibility instead of Repeat Play.
- Repeat Play — Will kids come back to it over time? Does the toy allow diverse imaginative play experiences? Does it provide longer-term play value?
- Collectibility — Some toys may have limited traditional play, but kids will treasure them as collectibles.
- Assembly/Instructions — Is the toy easy to assemble? Are the instructions clear?
Over the years we’ve learned a lot about what makes great toys and exciting play experiences. We want to help you create the best experiences for your kids and your family.
Ultimately, you’re the best judge of what you want to bring into your home — and what’s best for your kids. And because you’re an important part of the Time to Play family, we invite you to let us know if you ever find an error or have any ideas how we can better help you. After all, we exist for one reason: to help you have more fun!
The phenomenon returns. Hasbro's Beyblade was a huge hit, taking the concept of customizable battling tops to a whole new level and spawning entertainment, competition and a worldwide hit.
The one-time hit is making a comeback with many major design improvements to engage a whole new generation of kids. The Beyblade: Metal Fusion battling top toy line encourages kids to collect, customize, and compete like never before with a new metal gear system and the introduction of an online virtual battle component. With a focus on customization and high-performance competition, each top comes with five interchangeable parts, ready for kids to build and rebuild to maximize performance for battle. To get the action started, kids pull the top's ripcord to launch it into play with the battle cry "Let it rip!" The last top spinning wins.
Collect, customize, and compete with the tops in the Battle Top Assortment. Complete with cast-metal fusion wheel, ripcord launcher, and assembly tool, kids can build their tops (as a defense, attack, balance, or stamina top) to suit the battles. Then take the battles to the Super Vortex Battle Set. Complete with two exclusive Beyblade: Metal Fusion tops, two ripcord launchers, an exclusive high-performance Super Vortex Beystadium arena, official rule book, and tournament grid, this set is ready to let it rip.
The battles can even extend online. Just enter the unique code found in each package at BeybladeBattles.com to compete against other virtual Beybladers.
