Today's world has lead our children to be VERY technology dependent. I have noticed it can be very hard for them to entertain themselves without an electronic gadget in tow. My oldest son has the hardest time with this.
Coloring has never been his thing, he can only take so much of 100 degree heat outside, and he no longer uses his imagination to play with toys. Keeping him from saying “There's nothing to do” is quite a task if an electronic is not involved. I have noticed he does like experiments or activities that revolve around science or trying to figure out brain teasers. These things keep him thinking AND entertained just like this High Speed Puzzle Cube we've been playing with. This puzzle cube is just like the classic Rubik's cube except with a few important differences. This puzzle is special being stickerless, turns smoothly with good control, and comes with it's own velvet carrying bag.
While using this puzzle cube I never felt like it was going to get stuck while turning the faces this way or that. It just glided right on to where I needed it to go. This is not to say this puzzle cube is by any means easy to solve. Someone had was too much time to figure this sucker out. I could only turn it so many times before I gave up but thanks to a great YouTube video I completed it! Here are some of the steps I went through:
This high speed puzzle cube kept my son and I entertained for quite a while. Even with watching a how to video on how to solve the cube it still took us FOREVER. Great mom son bonding time! I would highly recommend this puzzle cube to anyone who loves to think. Remember puzzles are great mental exercise and can help stave off Alzheimer's. We need that since both my grandmother and my husband's grandfather passed away from that awful disease.
Can you solve a Rubik's cube without help?
