My son won one of these Rubiks Twist toys at a birthday party for a 6yr old. He was super excited until it was time to start making the creations, even though it came with an instruction page which showed examples of different shapes to make like the snake, frog, dog etc it only showed a picture not step by step instructions. Well for a 6yr old this was very difficult to do so it got handed over to myself, this was even impossible for me as the only way to create the shapes was by guess work looking at the pictures and interpreting the different shadowing which tried to show you which colour should be showing ie the blue or white squares. I myself only managed to make about 3 different shapes and that was with me spending ages doing it while the kids were in bed. My son ended up just making a basic gun shape out of it.

I would suggest to Rubiks to include a step by step instruction book especially for the younger kids and even to help kids make the basics so they can then have the skills to start creating their own creations.

I didn't realise the price of these until I saw it on this website and think for what it is it's very overpriced since the kids can't make much, if however they had the instruction booklet I think it would be a lot more worth the money and I would recommend it then but at its current state I would not.

This is one I recall from many years ago, back when the original 3x3 cube puzzle was around. Unlike any other traditional Rubik puzzle, this one seems to be purely and simply about the shapes you can make... closer to 'toy' than 'puzzle' really. So saying, I still had a LOT of fun playing twist'em with this one. I managed to successfully recreate all of the shapes in the little 'hints and tips' booklet that accompanied it, plus made a few of my own.

On top of that, I let a few of my friends have a play and every one of them found it to be a lot of fun. This was proven when we all went for a walk to the local toy retailer, and they bought one each! A 10-minute play gave them enough incentive to go out and buy 6 more units! This not only pleased the retailer, but it pleased me too, since it clearly showed me the value of a review site. -cheesy proud grin-

Overall, a very cool toy that can be both a puzzle and a time-passer. The only thing to note is that this unit is actually a pile of triangular units held together with a bit of nylon string. if you give it too hard a twist, try to bend it in ways it's not designed to go, you WILL break it beyond repair. Unlike the Rubik Cubes a broken unit is a dead unit, unable to be fixed by the average Joe Public. A Clever Joe could manage it, with the right tools and a LOT of patience. So really, the best advice I could offer is be careful, have a lot of fun, be creative.

What can I say, this toy has been around as long as the original Rubik's Cube and is quite fun in it's own right. While not as puzzling as the 3x3 Cube it is still entertaining to see what sort of shapes one can make out of it.

Now while the Twist does indeed come with an instruction booklet and it's fun to follow the directions to make the shapes, I found it was more entertaining to look at the picture of the finished product and try and replicate it without looking at the instructions, this made it more of a toy that makes you think and not just repeat verbatim from a book. This is where I think it makes a good educational toy.

So while not as fun as the cube, and it may not hold you attention for a similar length of time, still a good toy, especially if you have young children and you want then to use their minds a bit more rather than sitting in front of the idiot box during the holidays and weekends.
