1.0 out of 5 stars Poor Quality New Ones, Only Good if it's Old, October 1, 2007
= Durability:1.0 out of 5 stars  = Fun:5.0 out of 5 stars  = Educational:1.0 out of 5 stars 
This review is from: Rubik's Cube (Toy)
These new cubes use very cheap plastic and are stiff to turn. A piece snapped in two the first day. It was unrepairable. When I returned it to the store, even the clerk commented that the quality is terrible (the plastic feels light-weight and flimsy).

I've been playing with the Rubik's Cube since the 1980s. I got this new cube with the collector stand as a replacement for my over 10-year-old cube (which still works, but the decals are beginning to chip off).

I recommend the Rubik's Cube only if you can find an older one. You will know it's older because the blue and white sides are opposite each other. Avoid the ones where you can see red, white and blue at the same time like the one pictured here. These will be the poor-quality, new ones. They break too easily and you will be very disappointed.

You can buy replacement stickers for your old one from rubiks. You should definitely do that.

I've been playing with the cube more than 20 years and the blue and green are in opposite sides, no blue and white...
