... Rubiks 2x2 Giveaway ...

We love Rubik's cubes in this house and we are always trying to solve one cube or another.
We were recently sent this 2x2 and I stupidly thought oh this will be easy, I'll be able to crack this one.....

Well, I was wrong and I'm yet to solve it.
Noah, on the other hand, is a bit of a dab hand when it comes to Rubik's cubes and has very nearly solved it!

Did you know...

The world’s largest Rubik’s Cube is three metres tall 
The smallest is just 10mm wide
Both turn just like a regular cube.

There are more than 43 quintillion ways to scramble The Rubik’s Cube - that’s loads! 
In fact, there are 43,252,003,274,489,856,000 possibilities!

If you turn The Rubik's Cube once every second, it will take you 1.4 trillion years to go through all the permutations. 
(The universe is just 14 billion years old!)

The 2x2 Rubik’s Cube (also known as the pocket or mini cube) consists of 8 corner cubies and operates in much the same way as its bigger brother – the Rubik’s Cube. 
As it is smaller than the traditional Rubik’s cube it can be more easily slipped into a pocket or bag, making it the perfect item to take on a bus, 

If you do need a little help solving your Rubik's Cube you can find some much needed help over on the Rubik's website here.

~ Junior Rubik's Puzzle Review and Giveaway ~

I have always enjoyed having a go on a Rubik's cube.... have I ever completed one?
No, but it is a life long mission of mine than has now been passed down on to the boys.
We have an old cube in the house that I've had since I was a child and I'm sure it has had some stickers removed and added on top of others in a bid to try and out smart it, but yet no one has actually managed to complete it yet!

So when I was contacted about become a Rubik's blogger I was more than keen to sign up .....  maybe this would be my chance at finally figuring out the secret to getting all those little squares matched up.

John Adams have a huge range of Rubik's toys, which when I looked actually  blew my mind at the vast range as I wasn't aware at how many there were, so I was eagerly excited about seeing which Rubik's toys turned up on the doorstep.

In our first package were these very cute Rubik's Junior animal puzzles which are suitable for children ages 4 and up.

There are four designs to collect;
Puppy, Kitten, Bunny and Bear.
RRP £9.99 available from Argos.

The twins picked the dog and bear puzzles to try their hand at ....

I adore the design, cute and sweet. Perfect for little hands!
Just perfect for little problem solvers!

They always get so frustrated at trying to do the original cube, so it was nice to hand them something that I knew they would be able to do.

As soon as they were unboxed they couldn't wait to juggle the colours around and race each other to see who could get it back to normal first.

The Rubik’s Junior puzzle is the ideal puzzle for little problem solvers. 
The cute twistable character is so easy to grip and turn. 
Twist the blocks to create a crazy mixed-up animal, but with relatively few combinations. It is easy to solve whist keeping your child entertained.

It took them a few tries but it didn't take them long to solve it.
They then decided to mix up each others and then see if they could solve it.

The puzzles are great for kids as they aren't as tricky as the original and they don't take too long to solve, which helps kids stay focus and not give up to easily.

The twins didn't struggle solving them, but they did have to think about how the colours and shapes went together, so it was nice to see their thinking faces!
I'm sure Alex even stuck out his tongue at one point.

The guys over at John Adams have give me one Kitten puzzle & one Bunny puzzle to giveaway to two lucky readers...

They'll make fantastic stocking filler presents!
