Erica J. of Philadelphia says that her son, 4, couldn't wait to play with the soft, colorful cube. She says, however, that the cube does require a lot of practice. You can find helpful videos and instructions on the company's website, which is listed on this packaging.
She says that although the cube is a challenge, she's interested in teaching her son the mystery of the puzzle. "I feel it is beneficial to learn this art to promote critical thinking and independence in a child’s way of life," she says. "With promoting these traits, it will enhance positive capabilities in managing challenging situations that will arise in life."
