A great beginner level cube
Speedcubing (also known as speedsolving) is the activity of solving a variety of twisty puzzles, the most famous being the Rubik's Cube, as quickly as possible. For most puzzles, solving entails performing a series of moves that alters a scrambled puzzle into a state in which every face of the puzzle is a single, solid color. Some puzzles have different requirements to be considered solved.
Rubik's 2X2 Cube Puzzle
By Winning Moves Games
This is the new Rubik’s 2x2 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 reliable Rubik’s Cube.
It might look easy but don’t be fooled – it is still a challenge. The 2x2 Rubik’s Cube (also known as the pocket or mini cube) consists of 8 corner cubies and operates in much the same way as its bigger brother – the Rubik’s Cube. As it is smaller than the traditional Rubik’s cube it can be more easily slipped into a pocket or bag, making it the perfect item to take on a bus, train or airplane. It also makes a great present for younger puzzle enthusiasts who might not be ready for a fully-fledged 3x3 Rubik’s Cube.
The Rubik’s 2x2 Cube has 3,674,160 permutations and only one solution!
The Rubik's Cube was invented in 1974 by Hungarian professor of architecture, Ernő Rubik. A widespread international interest in the cube began in 1980, which soon developed into a global craze. On June 5, 1982, the first world championship was held in Budapest, Hungary.

I personally think this would make a good "starter cube" to work with. It looks like it would be "easy" compared to the normal Rubik's cube, but it actually provides a decent challenge for interested beginners. You can more easily learn algorithms with this one, and then start applying the concepts to more complicated cubes later.
Overall, I would recommend this product for anyone that enjoys fun brain teasers, puzzles, and challenges.
the other rotates well right out of the box but hasn't been played with too much. First, if you are buying this for your kids as an easy intro step up to the larger cube know that this 2x2 cube is as easy as you think, and you will likely still need internet help in solving (fixing for the kids) if you are not a cube expert yourself. My son insisted that he wanted his broken easter 2x2 cube replaced so I searched 2x2 speed cube here on amazon and bought a more highly rated non-rubiks brand, hoping for better luck with smoother movements!
PS--- I love that the sides are not stickers, but painted on. A certan family member used to "win" the original Rubiks cube by moving stickers around...sneaky, sneaky.
