I am really thrilled when the children play with toys/games that I have played with. It doesn’t make me feel that old.
We were sent a Rubik’s Cube, which I have been trying to solve for some time now (well, since I got it) and have only managed one side. I am definitely doing something wrong. Jadyn also tries her hand at it and I think this is ideal for keeping the children off gadgets for a while. I take it with me in the car sometimes so that children can have a go at it. Since it is small enough to carry around, it is a perfect car game.
I love the quality of this one as I have had some Rubik’s cubes from other manufacturers and they have come apart. This one is perfect.
We even received a smaller version of it in key ring form and this is ideal for carrying on bus journeys and while waiting at GP surgeries or dentists. It’s really cute.
I love the Rubik’s Twist and though it looks easy, it is not that easy to make all the designs and we are still getting our head around a few shapes. But we have managed these easy ones and the children love trying them out. Another great game to carry when travelling. I love the new ‘twist’ on the Rubik’s Cube.
We were also sent a game called Rubik’s Race and this one is perfect for younger children. It is a race to see how fast you can create the pattern given.
Shake the Scrambler and create the similar pattern with the 9 tiles in the centre. The pattern must be copied as one sees it so at the end you have a mirror image of the pattern on both sides. Once the pattern is complete, turn the frame down to win.
There are never-ending options to the game as you can create random arrangements and these are all mentioned in the instructions.
I really like this game as it is easy for younger children to play too and get them thinking. Ethan is 5 and he enjoys playing it. Jadyn is pretty good at it.
All the games are of a very good quality and we are enjoying playing with them as a family. The great thing about these games is that you can either play them individually or challenge other family members.
A big thanks to Ideal Games for sending these through as they have sorted out some of the holiday activities.
