Product Description

Amazon.com

Even if you've been living on Mars since the 1970s, you've probably heard of Rubik's Cube, the bestselling puzzle in history. Just in case, though, here's a recap: it's a 3-by-3-by-3-inch cube with rotating faces made up of nine squares that can be scrambled into (so it's said) 43 quintillion combinations. Getting the cube back to its original position (so that all nine squares of the same color make up each face) is incredibly challenging for most, though it can be mastered and solved. For those not gifted with superhuman spatial intuition, this mindbender comes with a solution hints booklet, which examines the cube's properties and offers clues for solving the puzzle. Whether it's a difficult toy or retro '80s kitsch you're seeking, Rubik's Cube is for you. --Rob Lightner

Cheaper priced than the winning moves brand one, hasbro/milton bradley is pretty well know brand compared to winning moves which is unknown brand.
Customer
The stickers peel off, the turning radius is weak and it's very squeaky...not good if you're trying to cube in a library.

I'm an avid cuber, can easily solve it in under 30 seconds, and have been cubing since 1981, so I know what I'm talking about here, and wanted to respond to a couple of the comments.

First, the stickers. ALL the currently mass-produced cubes have stickers of the same very low quality. With even moderate use, these stickers will start to peel, usually starting with orange. The stickers are very easy to replace, and replacement stickers that are high quality and don't peel are widely available at a cost of about a buck for a complete set. For a casual cuber, just replacing the stickers once with high quality stickers should turn this into a very durable toy.

Where to get replacement stickers? The official page for Rubik's has replacement stickers that are low quality and what they call "PVC stickers" which are much better quality ($5 for 3 sets), and cubesmith, which only stocks the high quality non-peeling variety for $1.25 per complete set.

Second, with respect to the ease of turning, there is (unfortunately) a wide range of quality for these mass produced cubes when you first pull them out of the box. Many turn very smoothly right out of the box, but some are extremely stiff. ALL of them, however, will break in eventually and will get better with even a little bit of use, and (except for the stickers) Rubik's cubes almost never wear out (I still have the first one I bought in 1981). That makes this an incredible deal!

There is no way to tell the smooth cubes without opening the package and trying them out. Still, nearly any of these mass produced cubes that carry the official Rubik's logo will be good enough for the casual user.

I was playing with Rubik's cube the last time it was hot in the 80's, and I just recently bought a few of these. The first two I bought in a store was made by Winning Moves which work the way I remember the cube to be in the old days. Then I decided I want one in my office and order this one through Amazon because it offers free shipping for Prime Members.

This cube was bad right out of the package, and within three days of moderate use, the clear color stickers started peeling off the white background stickers on many of the faces. This cube is also very loud, sometime squeaky, and often get stuck when used in medium or high speed. There is a HUGE difference between this and the Winning Moves one.

I guarantee I have nothing to do with the Winning Moves company, and this is actually the first time I have disliked a product enough to write a review on Amazon. But there is no excuse for a bad version of a product that has been around for 30 years! Don't buy this version.

Got it yesterday and already the stickers are wearing off. The durability of this thing is junk. I read an online tip that said, "Coat the edges of the stickers with clear flat (non-shiny) nail polish to prevent peeling." I'll try that now.

Within a month of buying my Rubik's Cube, all of the lamination on the yellow stickers had peeled off, and the stickers had faded to white. I had two white sides on my cube. Who has heard of a 30 day warranty? They should make it a year, and should put better stickers on the things.

Oddzon needs to improve the quality of stickers they use on the Rubik's cube. Within a week of playing with the cube, the plastic laminate began falling off and the colors began fading on the stickers. I have heard this complaint from many people and would urge people who want to buy this product to consider these problems.

This is probably the ultimate mind-expanding drug. I call it mind-expanding because it is marvelous for enhancing your spatial and mathematical capabilities, as well as changing the very way you look at problems in real life. I call it a drug because it is amazingly addictive! Once you scramble it (which is surprisingly easy), it will take you weeks, if not months, of obsessive frustration to solve it even once. Once you do, though, you will be hooked, and after a short time, you'll be blindingly fast at it. It took me 5 weeks to solve it initially, but less than two months after that, I was down to 5 minutes. However, there is one downside to the new, modern version of this magic cube: after those three months, my cube looked like it was older than me! The plastic over the stickers peeled off, and then...well, needless to say, my cube now has two white sides, like many of the other reviewers' here. So, I reiterate what they have said: Please, can the people at Oddzon make the Cubes like they were in the good old days, when they were as indestructible as a can of Spam?

I love my rubiks cube. I'm a first year college student, and I constantly find myself pulling out my cube in class to help me get through the boring lectures. It keeps my hands busy, and my mind in check. It's also a great conversation starter! People are so impressed when they see a solved cube. I see several people have had problems with the stickers, but let me suggest clear nail polish. My stickers started to come off after the first week, but I just peeled the laminate off and painted over them with clear nail polish. Not only does it protect the stickers, but now my cube is "shinier and prettier" than when I first bought it. Let me add that my younger sisters will be recieving their first cubes for Christmas this year. That and a few lessons with The Master.
