Inspired by the anime and manga of the same name, the game that goes by Beyblade is also inspired heavily by the beigoma style of top originally produced in Japan centuries before. Beyblade tops use a ripcord system to launch and propel into whatever arena you're using to play with them, which can include anything from bowls to the insides of trash can lids to specially designed arenas made for the game. This game truly aims to appeal to the nostalgia of the experience. Furthermore, according to the item's auction listing on Heritage Auctions' website:
