This is the NEW Rubik’s Cube with tough tiles. The traditional stickers have been replaced with plastic; which mean no fading, peeling or cheating! It also has a brand new mechanism that results in a smoother, faster and more durable Rubik’s Cube. If anyone ever tells you they solve the Rubik’s Cube by peeling the stickers off – hand them one of these!
The Rubik’s Cube is the classic colour-matching puzzle that’s a great mental challenge at home or on the move. Turn and twist the sides of the cube so that each of the six faces only has one colour. Over “43 Quintillion” (that’s 43 with 18 zeros to you and me) moves are possible with this original 3x3 Cube, but there is only one solution! With lots of practice you can solve it in under 10 seconds!
Rubik’s Cube is incredibly addictive, and has fascinated fans since it arrived in 1980. A must for puzzle lovers, the aim is to twist and turn the Rubik’s Cube to return it to its original state, with every side having one solid colour. With this retro puzzle hours of challenging fun lie ahead.

5 out of 5 stars
great cube fun funky and monkey I can solve it but not so fast I am more of a pyraminix, mirror cube kind 'of guy
The 3x3x3 Rubik's cube is a great challenge. I can solve it in a minute or less now. I learned how to solve it about a year ago, and now I can solve a 2x2, 3x3, 4x4, 5x5 and 6x6. Now I'm looking into buying a 7x7x7! The reason I rated it 4 of 5 stars is because the stickers wear off after lots of use.
I really like this puzzle! It is great, but you might want to lube it to turn better. If it doesn't turn great you just have to work it in.
Hard but not impossible. After learning how to solve it various ways and a lot of practice you can get into the 3-to-4 minute solve rate time. The 90-seconds quoted by someone above is extremely rare. The stickers wear off after a really long time (hundreds of hours) but the cube itself lasts and lasts. Plastic cube held together by springs. The six center pieces rotate only, all of the edge pieces slide around as you rotate any one side. It's very fun to ask someone else to mix it up, and then solve it and give it back to them to mix it up again. Once you learn the moves you prefer (there are many various ways to solve - some are faster but more complex, some are simpler but longer) you can solve anyone's Rubik. And for a mathematical challenge, the instructions are not needed - for a real pleasant challenge, try to solve it WITHOUT the book, for those so inclined.
The 3x3 cube is what got me into speed cubing. This is a delicious little puzzle. challenging beyond your wildest dreams. The stickers lose their protective covers over time, but the cube itself is great.
Hard but not impossible. I learned to solve this almost 30 years ago, and I still can do it in about 90 seconds.
