Beautiful Toy - I recently taught myself how to solve my daughter's standard Rubiks cube, and I bought this for her for her birthday (for me to solve too :) It is amazing...I was a little intimidated, but it solves exactly the same way. But it really challenges your brain, because as you work through the algorithms, you are paying attention to the 3-dimensional size and shape of each piece instead of the color combos. Super fun! Also, this Rubiks cube has a very nice, smooth easy movement, and the gold stickers are high quality and very lovely. I highly recommend this to any Rubiks enthusiast.

I have ordered many different types of cubes, including a few different variations of a 3x3. This is by far my favorite. Why? well let me tell you:
1: Out of the box it turns beautifully! It is seriously the smoothest cube I've ever gotten right out of the box.
2: The stickers are gorgeous and perfectly centered. It looks like fine metal and there has been no peeling thus far
3: The price is amazing! Along with the fact that this cube is included with Prime, which for me means free two day shipping (which it arrived exactly on time)
The cube is seriously so smooth, however the lube they use seems to dissipate quickly and I am starting to hear the springs after a few solves. This is nothing a little new lube can't easily fix, but if you don't have any, hopefully you don't mind the spring sounds. It can barely cut corners, and reverse corner cutting is almost non existent, but it rarely locks up for me, which is nice.
Overall, the cube looks and feels great, especially for the price. I definitely recomend it and I will continue solving this cube time to time and update if anything comes up.

Extremely unique take on a classic puzzle
By John S. Kjellman
This is a very unique take on the original Rubik's Cube. You can solve it like a normal cube as even though some of the faces are different sizes, the core center piece is off center making some of the faces jut out when twisted. Hard to explain but once you turn it a few times it is clear that it works exactly like the original Rubik's Cube, it just uses different sized faces instead of colors. I'm not 100% sure but I think some combinations may appear solved when they would not be if this were a standard 6 color cube.
The packaging is a small printed box with mostly Chinese writing on it and very little English. Not a big deal but may through off some people. The cube is wrapped in clear plastic wrap and is slightly oily when first removed. This oil is from internal lubrication that helps the cube turn easily. Once it is wiped off I doubt much more would seep out.
