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.

I have solved this cube a few times now, and I would say it is a fairly well designed cube. It’s not too difficult; if you can solve a 4x4 and up, and I’d rate it as maybe slightly more difficult/involved than a 5x5. It feels okay to turn, not amazing or anything as I still get a fair amount of lock ups, but with a more complicated design like this id say that’s to be expected. The description of this says it is pretty much a 3x3 ball within a 4x4 cube, but I found it to be more like a 5x5 within a 4x4. The pictures leave out that there is an extra center edge piece of the inner sphere under the 4x4 edges. It’s a little inconvenient that you have to separate the edge pieces to see the piece underneath, but overall it isn't too bad. This cube is definitely an interesting conversation piece and looks cool sitting on my desk but I don’t find myself solving it as much as it probably deserves. Overall a quirky little addition to a collection for someone who already has most of the “standard” cubes.
Before I knew about the cubicle I paid twice as much and waited weeks for my Tony ball. I ordered this ball in cube version and had it 2 days later.
Very nice puzzle turns well and interesting design, love it! Cross between a 4x4 and 5x5 without the tediousness of solving a 6x6.
Pretty interesting concept, and turning is smooth. I wondered quite a while which one I should get - this or the overlapping cube. They seem to have the same mechanism, but this one is a ball. I chose the ball, it looks pretty enticing.
There is "hidden" colored edges in the middle of the 4x4 edges, not sure if you're supposed to solve them as well, but so far I did. Pretty much like a 5x5, but a funky shapemod.
Only gripe I have is that the middle layer often slips when you don't want it to turn. Probably could need magnets, could make this a lot more enjoyable.
