Rubik's Cube Review and Giveaway

This giveaway is now over. The winner is Laura. Congrats!

Some toys just bring back great memories. Rubik's Cube has to be one of those. Who doesn't remember a Rubik's Cube from when they were a kid? However, can you believe they are 30 years old this year?  (Man, I feel old!)

There is also a “You CAN Do The Rubik’s Cube” program that is designed to get youth engaged in math and science in a fun way.  I'll be honest — I had no idea that a Rubik's Cube can help teach colors, fractions, measurements, geometry, and algebra.  Here, I thought I was just having fun!  Rubik's has even designed a solution guide and lesson plans to help engage youth in grades 3-12 and special education programs.  Besides the above skills, the Rubik's Cube can be used as a memorization, sequencing, problem solving, and confidence building tool.  (Full disclosure:  Rubik's Cube sent my daughter's school a Rubik's Cube Math Education Kit worth $150).  My favorite part?  It came with a solution guide (though I swear reading it was like looking at calculus.  My husband, the engineer, disagrees).

Since this brought up so many great memories (and I'm glad to see my kids will get some great memories too), I have arranged for one lucky winner to get their own Rubik's Cube.  Here's what you need to do:

Tell me who you would give this Rubik's Cube to and why!  (Or would you keep it for yourself?)

  1. My husband is a rubix cube genius! His is getting a bit worn out and I would love for him to have the guide, just in case he needs a refresher! Thanks for the chance!

  2. I would give this to my nephew Luca. He loves to figure out puzzles and has yet to try the Rubiks Cube. ( he is 9) :mrgreen:

  3. Rubik's Cube – an all-time favorite of many (including me of course). 🙂 I'd like to give one to my 13-year old sister who actually asked me to buy one for her. Sad thing though I don't have an account to some of the social media sites you mentioned. Well, good luck to the rest of the contestants.

  4. I would give it to my almost-7-year-old, who probably would say it was too hard, but eventually she would probably come back to it and love it. She love solving puzzles!

  5. I would give a Rubik's Cube to my 12-year-old cousin. You see, he's always loved puzzles but is very ill and maybe won't live very long. He's never solved a Rubik's Cube before, but he's always wanted to.

  6. I'd give the Rubik's cube to my granddaughter who loves math and puzzles but has never had one of these. (I believe the younger generation should enjoy the same frustration as we did, although I love that a solution guide is included.)

  7. My 12 y.o. actually asked for one the other day. I figure its better for her than texting or being on facebook.

  8. I would give the Rubik’s Cube to my husband – it would keep him occupied for hours (even days hopefully)! 😆

  9. I would keep the cube until my son saw it and then it would become his, just like every other toy I try to buy myself!
