Our Promise to You
All of our products are guaranteed to be free of defects, or we will replace and reship at no cost to you. Please contact us within 4 weeks (28 days) past the delivery date to report any issues with items you have purchased.
Please note that some new cubes when being used for the first few times may experience what is termed a "pop". This is when one or more parts of a puzzle pop out without any damage actually being done to any of the pieces. This also occurs from time to time during normal usage. Pops are typically not considered a defect if the parts which come off can be reassembled by hand.
The corners on 2x2 puzzles should not be twisted as doing so may snap the piece. Damage caused by corner twisting is not considered to be a defect.

The cube isn't necessarily the best hardware, but it is a super fun cube that put me in hour long trances.
I love love love this puzzle, it's been my favorite to solve since I got it. However, it's not exactly the smoothest turning or the quietest. I'd say it slightly catchier than a Rubik's brand 3x3x3, but a little quieter than it. If you get upset by not smooth turns, it's definitely not for you. I've heard you can mod it to be slightly better for that, but I haven't looked into it myself, and if you want a smooth FTO I'd probably recommend looking into that. The market definitely needs a better one for speed solving, but personally, I don't mind all too much.
FTO is such an interesting and fun puzzle, it's a real shame there's no actual good hardware on the market for it. Gan, YJ, somebody's gotta get to it and make a proper stickerless speed-FTO! Out of the box, the LanLan one feels like a 1980 Rubik's cube (and I'm old enough to remember that!). If you mod it the way benpuzzles says (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1EQfftDW0EQ), then it's actually pretty ok. Not great, but pretty ok. But be forewarned, modding an FTO puts you in for MANY HOURS of fiddly sanding and smoothing of the pieces. Definitely worth it, but wow, I do not want to have to do that again. The stickers on the LanLan are also pretty cheap. I've bought two of these puzzles now (one modded, one not), and the stickers are already starting to peel up and flake around the edges after about 50 solves. Please, can some manufacturer make a _proper_ stickerless FTO? It's such a cool puzzle, I just don't think there's any way it will get real traction in the community while the hardware is such trash. If you want an FTO, the LanLan is the best you'll find, but like I said, that's a real shame.
While it may not need the best turning, this is my favorite puzzle to solve in my collection
this puzzle turns well! it’s just, when I got it. It was popped! Sadly, I had to put it in a ziplock bag to make sure it was still okay :(
The solve is fun, mostly intuitive and I like it, but I docked a star because it pops and dosent turn well.
I think that the puzzles is a fun solve, but the cube is just so horrible that you might as well not buy it. Even with loosening the tensions it still is very catchy, just with added pops. A better alternative is either to follow benpuzzles' tutorial or print a rexTO
This puzzle isn't that good. It definitely needs modding to speedsolve. However, actually speedsolving is a wonderful experience. It is very different from WCA puzzles, I don't usually solve anything outside of the WCA puzzles. The community is great for FTO. Honestly, it amaze me that no other companies have jumped on this, because if they an FTO that is up to modern standards, they'd have all our money.
