Product Description

Product Description

This Rubik’s Cube is bigger, better and more mind-boggling. Building on the classic 3x3” cube, this large model is 4x4” and requires some fun new twists and turns. Includes instruction booklet.

From the Manufacturer

The 4x4 requires different moves to solve than the original 3x3, and it's more challenging!

The 4x4 cube by Rubik's is terrible.

I am so disappointed that companies can get away with selling such a bad quality product and stealing from consumers.

One of the center pieces broke off, and it's irreparable.

I bought the cube, and it was in ruins a week later. One of the center pieces broke off, and it's irreparable. I saw it coming, though, because the cube started showing signs of flakiness by the second day: some of the stickers (mostly the orange ones) had begun peeling off, and the pieces were getting very loose, very fast. The cube burst side pieces out on two occasions before its final destruction.

I was being as gentle as possible, but if you learn how to solve the cube, then you'll be performing thousands of turns on it. Both the 3x3 and the 5x5 cubes seem to hold up a lot better than the 4x4.

I'm hoping I can find another manufacturer. I've played with 3x3 cubes from many manufacturers over the years, and some are obviously better-made and more durable than others. This isn't one of the good ones.

If you're going to make serious attempts at solving your 4x4, I recommend lubricating it with something. The cube-solving sites seem to recommend silicone spray (whatever that is). When I was in high school I'd take them apart and put vaseline in them, which smooths over the "catches" that happen as you turn rows that are slightly misaligned, and also has a slightly glue-y effect that holds it together better.

I used to love playing with the 3x3 Rubik's cube as a kid and decided to get it for my son for Christmas. I mistakenly ordered the 4x4, but decided it didn't matter - still the same kind of fun and challenge. The day it was opened, the stickers started to come off and when I tried to use it, within the first 30 seconds, four pieces came off, one of which broke and can't be fixed! I just went online to order the 3x3, but are finding similar reviews about stickers, etc. WHAT A DISAPPOINTMENT!!

I bought the cube, and it was in ruins a week later due to the fact that the cube started showing signs of flakiness by the second day: some of the stickers (mostly the white and blue ones) had begun peeling off. This is beyond belief because this toy should have been designed / built with the durability to withstand some handling; the statement "if you learn how to solve the cube, then you'll be performing thousands of turns on it" is spot-on.

I love the original 3x3 Rubik's cube and I play with it all of the time. All of my friends had this 4x4 and it looked really fun. So I bought this 4x4 Rubik's cube and waited many days for it in the mail. Then I got the package, opened it up, started playing with it, and then 3 pieces snapped out and fell on the floor. One of those pieces was a center piece that can't be put back on. I wasn't even spinning the cube that hard, and it just broke. So right now I wasted 20 bucks on a broken piece of junk cube.

Purchased a 4x4 rubik's cube and it lasted no more than 5 minutes before it fell apart. The pieces started coming off of the 'ball' that is inside the cube. Don't buy this thing, it is a waste of money!

Verified Purchase
I hate writing reviews.. but this product is so seriously bad.. that I don't want another person to waste their money. I bought 2 of these for my husband and myself... they broke within days!! one the next the other 2 days later.. I ended up ordering them again from a professional speed-cubing company located in Germany (Cubikon) .. I am so disappointed that companies can get away with selling such a bad quality product and stealing from consumers. I am out 40 dollars.. Nobody cares.. and life is to short for me to pursue this any further..

I am only writing this so you don't make the mistake I made.. I did not listen to the reviews here either

I love rubik's cube I myself can solve a regular rubik's cube but not the big one the problem though is the stickers they peel off about the second day that you use it they need to go back to the way they did it in the eighty's paint that way I don'y have to buy a new one every time a sticker falls off

I received a Rubik's Brand 4x4 cube for Christmas this year. I can solve the 3x3 in about a minute and a half each time, I was looking for something harder and this new cube fits the bill perfectly. Up to a point, it is not like a 3x3, and is entirely intuitive. However, you can eventually turn it into a scrambled 3x3, and you solve it the same from that point on. Except for parity. Parity is a situation that can occur on a 4x4 but is not possible on a 3x3, and it requires at least two huge, horrible, difficult, chalenging, and crazy algorithms that you must memorize. But, it is very fun to solve and I recomend every Rubix enthusiast to get one.

Now, about the quality of this particular cube. My problem is with the stickers. The internal mechanism, a sphere, is fine. The physical construction of this thing is great. It moves well, and is very sturdy. But the stickers are not durable. Within three days, they began to peel. I then decided to take a risk, and customize it. I took it apart, and painted each piece individually with epoxy, then I scraped the excess epoxy off the insides of each individual piece once it dried. I then lubed it with WD40 and Vaseline, while putting it back together. The result, a professional looking and moving cube. It took a lot of time, but I think it was worth it. However, that amount of work would not be necessary if Rubik's were to spend about 5 cents more on each cube and get better stickers. The quality of the stickers deduct two stars from this otherwise five star cube.

I would recomend that you look at other brands for you 4x4, like Eastsheen, or maybe a tiled cube. Or, you could purchase better stickers for about a dollar and put them on yourself as soon as you get this cube. Or you could turn it into a frankencube as I have done with mine. But except for the poor stickers, this is a great cube, very chalenging and fun, and anyone will enjoy it.
