Great fun until it falls apart Apr 21, 2006
By Stephen F. Yegge
I bought the cube, and it was in ruins a week later. One of the center pieces broke off, and it's irreparable. I saw it coming, though, because the cube started showing signs of flakiness by the second day: some of the stickers (mostly the orange ones) had begun peeling off, and the pieces were getting very loose, very fast. The cube burst side pieces out on two occasions before its final destruction.
I was being as gentle as possible, but if you learn how to solve the cube, then you'll be performing thousands of turns on it. Both the 3x3 and the 5x5 cubes seem to hold up a lot better than the 4x4.
I'm hoping I can find another manufacturer. I've played with 3x3 cubes from many manufacturers over the years, and some are obviously better-made and more durable than others. This isn't one of the good ones.
If you're going to make serious attempts at solving your 4x4, I recommend lubricating it with something. The cube-solving sites seem to recommend silicone spray (whatever that is). When I was in high school I'd take them apart and put vaseline in them, which smooths over the "catches" that happen as you turn rows that are slightly misaligned, and also has a slightly glue-y effect that holds it together better.

Big disappointment! Dec 30, 2006
By S. Zakos
I used to love playing with the 3x3 Rubik's cube as a kid and decided to get it for my son for Christmas. I mistakenly ordered the 4x4, but decided it didn't matter - still the same kind of fun and challenge. The day it was opened, the stickers started to come off and when I tried to use it, within the first 30 seconds, four pieces came off, one of which broke and can't be fixed! I just went online to order the 3x3, but are finding similar reviews about stickers, etc. WHAT A DISAPPOINTMENT!!

Same experience - fragile (okay), stickers peel off with use (not okay) Aug 29, 2006
By P. Johnston
I bought the cube, and it was in ruins a week later due to the fact that the cube started showing signs of flakiness by the second day: some of the stickers (mostly the white and blue ones) had begun peeling off. This is beyond belief because this toy should have been designed / built with the durability to withstand some handling; the statement "if you learn how to solve the cube, then you'll be performing thousands of turns on it" is spot-on.

Great toy! Oct 02, 2004
By Stacy Vicknair
If you've defeated the rubik's cube (3x3x3) then this is the next logical step. Not too much harder than the 3x3x3, but more fun! Only problem is the stickers wear off easy, but you can purchase replacements from the rubiks website.

Not as hard as you may think... Oct 28, 2004
By Joe Shmow
An expansion on the 3x3x3 cube, this is a whole different dynamic in solving algorithms. just because you can do three doesn't mean you can do this! But, once you figure out your meathod it isn't super hard. You really need to know how to solve a 3x3x3 before you attempt this, however. Definately, if you like puzzles, pick this up.
