This is one of the best toys I have got in a while. Sure it looks weird, but don't be put off - this will guarantee you ages of fun. It's much easier than the real Rubiks Cube, but it gets harder as you go. It took me around 3 hours to complete on the day I bought it, but there is a new way of doing it each time, so you never get bored of it! If you are even considering it, go for it! You won't regret it, and that's a promise!
