Imagine a cross between Newton’s Cradle, Rubik’s Cube, Silly Putty and bubble wrap. We know that’s difficult but it’s the only way we can describe the brilliantly addictive allure of the M-Cube.
Unlike any puzzley plaything we’ve ever seen, this boredom busting oojamiflip consists of 216 powerful rare earth magnets that can be shaped, squashed, sculpted, pulled apart and snapped together in unlimited ways. It really has to be seen to be disbelieved!
Armed with an M-Cube you can form countless shapes, create chains, invent games, make jewellery, leave messages on the fridge and much, much more. You can also use it as a stress reliever: simply manipulate it, mangle it, crush it, re-arrange it and your troubles will float away. Maybe. Think of it as a miniature therapist. Indeed, the only thing you’ll need treatment for once you begin tinkering is hopeless M-Cube addiction.
Although it’s touted as a puzzle, there is no solution or pre-set ending to M-Cube. You simply fiddle with it. And fiddle with it. And fiddle with it. And…look, you get the idea. The point is this fascinating collection of north and south polarity boasting balls is completely unputdownable. Shove one in your pocket and you’ll never be bored again, wherever you may roam.
As well as providing dual hemispherical brain stimulation (it says here), the M-Cube will appeal to anyone who enjoys manipulating strange objects – and they don’t get much stranger than this.
