It turns out that Beyblades are not the only top in town when it comes to spinning top toys. New from Toy Fair 2012 is the TOSY Toop – Motorized Spinning Top. What makes the TOOP so special is that fact that it can spin for hours! In fact the Toop set a world record for longest spinning top.
The Toop Tops Are All About Power and Lights
To appreciate the TOSY Toops, you really need to see them in action. Here is a great video review of TOSY Toops from DadDoes.Com . Check out how the tops keep spinning, even when they get bumped. This is a very different type of game than with Beyblades.
In the review, there was one big negative to the TOSY Toops – they use 4 triple A batteries. In addition, the top will only run for 2 hours on one set of batteries. It would seem like a very wise idea to use rechargeable batteries with the TOSY Toop Motorized Spinning tops.
I think I will try a battle TOSY Toop vs. Beyblades – I wonder who will win
