In Our Display Case

Children's display: beyblades
Okech Odola is 9 years old and a student at Bartle. Okech has been collecting Beyblades since he was five years old. He first became interested when he saw the anime show on television. Okech’s collection includes 4 different types of Beyblades that do battle.

There are attack, defense, stamina and balance Beyblades included in his collection. Also included are different types of launchers which make the Beyblades spin in the stadium on which they do battle. Once a Beyblade stops spinning , bursts, or falls in a hole it’s opponent becomes the winner. This extensive and colorful collection has examples from both Hasbro and Takara Tomi in it. Okech has become an expert on Beyblade battles and strategies and is still adding to his collection.
