Make your own DIY Beyblade using LEGOs. This is an easy project for any LEGO or Beyblade lover that will provide hours of fun and creativity.
LEGO blocks are great tools for creating fun, new toys.
My boys love to play with Beyblades and they love to play with their LEGOs. Recently, they learned how to make Beyblade-esque toys using their LEGOs, which has resulted in hours of fun and creativity.
It is super, simple and easy to create the base, and if you want to get more creative, you can.
They have enjoyed adding on details that they like to call shields and weapons. It is a great way for them to use their imaginations and create something of their own.
Here is a video of my boys putting this together:
- Slide shoe round 2×2 — It is the smooth surface on the bottom on which the DIY Beyblade spins
- 2×2 brick – You could find a rounded, cylinder version that would work the same. It attaches to the slide shoe round 2×2.
- 4×4 or more plate – I would suggest a plate that isn’t too large, but I think it should at least be 4×4. This is the surface on which you can add a lot of pieces.
Place the rounded piece face down into the bottom of your 2×2
Place the 2×2 onto the bottom of your plate.
In order for the top to spin well, it should be balanced. I would picture a circle, an equilateral triangle (all the sides are the same length), or a square in order to keep your top balanced.
To spin, just use your fingers to push the opposite sides of the top in opposite directions very quickly. Feel free to see how long yours can spin, and spin yours with a buddy to see who lasts longer.
My boys named theirs names like Money Man, Big Man, Xme, Redasour, and Shooter Man.
My boys like to battle theirs. Competitions are always a good motivator for building a better DIY Beyblade! Plus, it is more fun!
We haven’t found a good way to make a DIY Beyblade launcher, but the boys don’t seem to care at all. They use them on all surfaces, though they’d work great in a Beyblade Stadium as well.
To shop for these pieces if you do not have them, then you might want to check out Lego.com or a local toy/brick store. A second-hand children’s store – like Once Upon a Child or Kid2Kid – would be a great choice as well.
