My kids are nuts over Hasbro’s Beyblade toys even though we have yet to buy any for them. It was an easy “yes” when we were offered a chance to try out the battery-free Beyblade Metal Fury Destroyer Dome set. The kids could not wait for it to arrive.
The Destroyer Dome (for ages 8 and up) was easy to set up except for one issue. The order of the instructions has you place the stickers after assembling the dome. The problem is that some of the stickers need to be placed prior to assembly. Although irritating, it does not diminish the functionality of the toy and the kids didn't even notice.
Once assembled you are ready to go. Playing with the Destroyer Dome is about as easy as can be. If your kids already have any Beyblade toys it is even easier. I like the fact that your Beyblades are contained within the dome, no more tops shooting off in all directions.
The action is intense but brief, the Beyblades “kill” each other pretty quickly. For my nearly nine year old Jake it hardly mattered. He had fun and could not wait to go again and again.
You can get the Destroyer Dome from Hasbro directly or from most major toy retailers nationwide for $39.99. It is currently selling on Amazon for $34.96 with Free Shipping.
Thank you to Hasbro for providing a complimentary product sample for us to base this review upon.
