Random Encounters: Beyblade Battle at the Mall, Taipei 2


Every generation has a toy that is easy to pocket or throw into a schoolbag, is cheap enough to be bought with an allowance, and can be used in an easy to set up and uncomplicated game with schoolmates. With my dad it was marbles. With me it was pogs. For my son, its Beyblade fighting tops. This past weekend a toy shop in the local shopping center held a Beyblade tournament activity.

The action in the center…

And the action around the center, starting with a very bored father.

A young Jedi knight.

Comfortable seating.

She has a tiny head and hands. The phone is normal-sized. Really.

That’s it. :-)
