Over 20 years ago, the BEYBLADE animated series was created by d-rights Inc. (now ADK Emotions Inc.) to support the toys and create an immersive world for fans. In 2001, the BEYBLADE franchise was introduced to the rest of the world with the first generation of the animated series, accompanied by hit songs produced by Nelvana, landing major broadcast deals. From there, it became an international hit – the show aired in over 80 countries around the world, with over 400 merchandise partnerships worldwide. BEYBLADE was on every toy list and awards roster and became the fascination of millions of children. Thousands of kids gathered to compete at the WBBA (World BEYBLADE Battle Association) championships at local, state and national levels, all competing for the elusive title of World Champion. The BEYBLADE franchise became a true global phenomenon that captured the essence of stimulating game play while introducing fans to an engaging world full of unforgettable characters. The brand continues to entertain newer as well as older generations of fans, with new innovative toys and exciting story developments!
