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 puzzle looks great, and is fun to solve, but out of the box I immediately noticed that one side was turning much smoother and was much looser than the other. After disassembling the puzzle I found that the five screws holding the centers for the curved sides were threaded into the core at a slight angle. This meant that the screw heads were off-center within the hollow spring area of the center pieces, giving them much more wiggle room towards the white side and almost no wiggle room towards the yellow side. I couldn't re-thread the screws to the proper angle, but with enough force I could bend the exposed portion of the screws in the right direction to center them within the center pieces.
The puzzle is now turning smoothly and evenly on all sides, but this is the most complex tuning I've ever needed to do to a puzzle. It is otherwise a pretty nice puzzle.
Cheap adorable puzzle. It turns well and it looks pretty.
I got this puzzle because it was cheap, and I was getting other stuff. I was very pleasantly surprised. This puzzle is very pretty. The translucent shades are awesome, matching the QiYi Jelly cubes. The puzzle is well made, and turns very well. It has to be lined up fairly accurately, but it isn't catchy. I have no problem executing algorithms on it. I had fun solving it, as well. I came up with my own technique to solve it, using stuff I knew from solving other puzzles. It was great to solve a completely new puzzle, without having to watch a tutorial. Everyone shopping at the Cubicle should throw one of these on their next order.
