Rubik's 2x2 Review And Giveaway

We are big fans of Rubik's puzzles in this house and have just had a new addition to the family: A Rubik's 2x2.

rubiks 2x2

Having tried out the Rubik's Junior and finally finding a Rubik's puzzle I can complete without cheating, I was excited by the Rubik's 2x2. I mean it is only small, it must be easy right? Louise, read the sticker on the box! No it is not easy. It is small, but with 3764160 combinations, I have yet to manage to complete it.


Instead I have left it to big man to solve. He is now a whizz at the regular Rubik's cube.

"It's all to do with algorithms Mummy."

"Ummmm ok" I say whilst googling what algorithm means. It took him 3 weeks to be taught by his friend and you tube on how to solve a Rubik's cube no matter how it has been muddled.

He has managed to solve the 2x2 but hasn't yet worked out how to do it reliably. However, I am sure he will work it out soon. I am hoping he will them teach me so that I can finally say I have completed a Rubik's cube.

I did think that the boys may not be as interested in this cube as they have the bigger one, but that is not the case. Big man sees it as a new challenge and little man lives in hope that he might be able to solve this smaller version.

I am excited to be able to offer one of my readers the chance to win a Rubik's 2x2 cube for themselves. Just complete the gleam entry below. Good Luck!

  1. The Rubik's Junior looks great! I had a Rubik's cube when I was younger and could never fathom out how to do it so I would cheat by pealing off the stickers and rearranging them!

  3. I've tried thousands of times over the years but never managed to solve the dratted thing so I think I'd love the 2 x 2 - I may still not solve it but at least I'd feel there was hope.

  4. I love the original Rubik's cube, it reminds me of growing up in the 80s! I knew at lad at school when we were about 12 and he could solve it in about 2 minutes, I still don't know how and I thought he must be a genius!

  7. Super impressed! It's quite hard to learn all the algorithms for a 3x3. I used to be able to do it under a minute. I have never tried a 2x2 one though. I would love to get my son interested in it.

  8. i have only ever completed a 3x3 cube and i can do it in less that 3 mins, my sons (who taught me) is very fast, he has completed many different sizes and shapes and can complete the 3x3 in less than 2 mins. this 2x2 would look good on his cube shelf!
