If you're wondering about the major difference between Beyblade and BeyWheelz, here is: Whereas Beyblade's battle style resembles colorful tops spinning upright, the drones in BeyWheelz roll on their sides like a flywheel. That's it. The world domination plot is nearly identical, as is the theme of young upstanding protagonists giving the hardcore villains a run for their money. But none of this compares to the two shows' most outstanding common goal: Marketing their toy replicas to eager young fans.

The story's not all bad, though. Many of the characters -- including Sho, the central figure -- display positive personality traits like loyalty, humility, and dedication to a just cause. The BeyWheelz sport draws people from different backgrounds who find common ground in their quest for excellence and, in the case of Estrella's members, their desire to return peace to their city. What's more, the Wheelers' star status as a result of their skills welcomes discussions with your kids about our society's treatment and expectations of celebrities.
