The Rubik’s Cube hasn’t lost it’s magic or appeal. But it’s more than just an eight-sided cube. There are many different puzzles available, for a variety of ages. So stuff their stockings with Rubik’s this Christmas!
The Rubik’s Cube craze started in 1980 and it’s still alive today! I remember as a kid, trying my hardest to get all those colours matched on each side of that cube. It was fascinating to watch others get it. It’s one of the most recognizable toys in the world!
And it’s still around today.
In fact, the Rubik’s family of toys has expanded and have more puzzles available; with something for every age! So if you’re looking for the perfect stocking stuffer this holiday, why not stuff their stockings with Rubik’s?
Can’t find your Orignial Rubik’s Cube? They are still available, in the classic 3×3 shape along with a variety of other sizes and shapes. There is 2×2, 4×4, 5×5, Rubik’s Edge, Junior Cubes, Rubik’s Twist, and more! They can be found at most major retailers including Walmart, Toys R Us, Indigo and more.
Rubik’s Race is their newest addition to their amazing puzzle family. A fast–paced, two-player game where the objective is to be the first to slide your tiles to match the 3×3 pattern to match the scrambler.
Each player sits opposite of each other, with their own set of tiles. They start by shaking the scrambler and then race to move those tiles (using only one finger if you want to make it harder), one at a time to match the pattern.
What the kids had to say:
Little Mouse: This game is hard, but still fun. At first I didn’t know how to move the colours, but once I figured it out (with mommy’s help) it was fun. I’m not fast enough to beat my sister, but one day I will!
Little Bird: I love this game. It’s hard, but in a good way. I like how you can only move one [tile] at a time, but then keep your eye on the next colour. I even beat my mom a few times!
Rubik’s Race is great for ages 5 and up (although I recommend skipping the one-finger challenge if they are under 8). It retails for $24.99 and can be found at Walmart, Toys R Us, Indigo and Mastermind Toys.
