Product Description

Colour Name: Rubik's cube

Manufacturer's Description

The biggest and fastest selling cult 'toy' of all time swept the world by storm in 1982. And now it's back.

Rubik's cube has six different coloured sides, each made up of nine squares. Once the faces are jumbled up, you have to twist and twirl them to return each coloured square to its place. Sounds pretty simple? You'd be surprised!

There are... wait for it... 43,252,003,274,489,856,000 ways of arranging the squares, and only one of these is the solution. So it's a massive challenge to work it out completely on your own. Fortunately, this time round each cube comes with a fantastic games and solution booklet which shows you how to solve the cube and all about the games you can play including speedsiding: how fast can you solve one side of your cube.

    Colour Name: Rubik's cube
    I have had several non-original Rubik's Cube over the years. Decided to buy an "original" Rubik's Cube as a Christmas treat. Wish I didn't waste my money. The quality is horrid. The stickers are peeling off after 2 days of careful use, and the whole thing is starting to feel loose. Total rip-off for the price.

    Colour Name: Rubik's cube
    I first got a Rubik's cube when they came out in the early 80's and absolutely loved it. I used the first one so much that I had to buy a replacement within a couple of years. The action for these cubes was fantastic. 'Clicky' 'tight' but so easy and smooth to turn. Even though I could eventually solve the puzzle in a couple of minutes, I've never tired of it.

    I was really pleased when they started to produce the cube again and was keen to buy a new one. I bought a new cube and was dismayed to find that the action and build quality was terrible. I actually dug out my remaining original cube to try and see what the difference could be and saw that the original design had little areas where the inner surfaces had open pockets or gaps. I think this was what helped to reduce the drag when turning the faces.

    I ended up exchanging several e-mails with the main 'Rubik's Cube' website and after trying to say that their product was as good as the original, they eventually admitted that their new cube was different. They said that they had stopped leaving these little gaps/pockets due to the risk of small children sticking their fingers in and thereafter being hurt. I personally think that this is utter nonsense.

    Anyway, I ended up checking out cubes on ebay and managed to get an original 80's cube in mint condition for under ten pounds. When it arrived, it really was like being introduced to an old friend. 'Tight' 'Clicky' but smooth as silk. A total contrast to the terrible ones that are being sold as the official cube.

    I've actually just ordered another 'Rubik's Cube' from another site which says that they get their cubes from a factory in Hungary which is still under the control of the inventor Mr. Erno Rubik. I am very hopeful that it will be as good as his original cube was.

    Colour Name: Rubik's cube
    For me, this was one of the best toys ever invented. The concept is very simple, but the combinations run into the zillions, which means that you can't solve it by chance.

    However, one can have fun working out how to solve it, then once you've done that, impress your mates by applying the same principles over and over again. There isn't that much to remember once you know how.

    The main problem is in the mechanism and the stickers. These things don't last forever, and can start falling about once they've been played with quite a lot. Also, I have experienced the paint fading on some of the stickers. So it could be much more durable than it is.

    However, this is definitely one of my all time favourite toys.

    Colour Name: Rubik's cube
    I love the cube, but the one I purchased lasted all of 2 days. The stickers (especially the green ones) started coming off. I have had to paint them once the stickers came of. The cube it self is of good quality, I just dont understand why they had to use stickers instead of having the colors painted onto the cube.

    If you order this from 'Fun Collectables' then you may receive a mediocre quality Chinese-made cube as I did and not the Hungarian-made cube clearly pictured.

    Colour Name: Rubik's cube
    First of all may i say that I'm pretty good at this toy.. averaging 30 second solves. Therefore i am obviously an advocate of it and think it is extremely fun, challenging in a positive way, and educational as a mathematical (logic) puzzle.
    However, I have not rated this product as highly as i would have liked because this particular branded cube is not particularly great.
    OK fair enough for a total beginner just wanting to learn the basics or as a gift etc etc (basically not as a serious buy) it is an far product... does the job. In fact this was my first Rubik's cube, as I am sure is true for most people.

    The build quality of Rubik's Rubik's cube is shoddy. As many other reviewers have stated, the stickers peel off easily with use. They are double layered, with a sort of cling film type sticker over each colour, however this just served to annoy me as i had a whole cube of stickers with half peeled off see through stickers, then as it deteriorated further the actual coloured stickers peeled off.
    The actual cube structure is basic therefore the cube does not spin nicely. I am yet to encounter a cube of this sort which can maximise solve times. Mine was poor despite proper lubrication methods. If you are already good at solving, or plan to get good, you should buy a cube from one of the many website which sell DIY cube kits which have much better build quality and sticker quality.

    Overall i love the Rubik's Cube, not this actual product however.

    Colour Name: Rubik's cube Verified Purchase
    This cube has a very good build quality. It feels solid while at the same time allowing smooth movements. The smaller sub cubes are rounded which makes them easier to rotate.
    I can't say if the coloured stickers are durable or not because I haven't used the cube for a long time up to now.
    In contrast to others cubes (which block rather often and are therefore not so much fun) I can recommend this one here.
