Buying a Rubik's 2x2x2?

Postby phil8715 » Tue Jan 17, 2012 12:24 am

Is there anywhere I can buy a Rubik's 2x2x2 cube on the high street?

I've seen them on Ebay for about £4 including p+p.

I think it depends on where you live. Most people get theirs from online shops. The only place I've seen them on the shelves of a propper high street shop was not in a shop!

I saw them for sale 2 years ago in the Science Museum in London. Probably no help, but I'm open to other offerings! :lol:

I was going to say I'm the UK, but you might have gathered that in the post when I said £4gbp.

Thats what happens when I've missed my coffee that day! :lol:

Saying that though, the Science Museum isn't much use to me. I live near Chester. :lol: It just so happens that I took my daughter to see it and the Natural History Museum when we went to London on a day trip.

You're in Cheshire I live in Lancashire near Blacknurn. I might have a trip to Blackpool in the summer as I think some of the gift shops used to sell Rubik's cube or puzzle cubes. Might have a look around.

I'm looking in toy shops and toy stalls on markets, you never know may find something.

Last time I went to blackpool, all I could find was the normal rubiks variety you get in shops these days - 3x3, slide, 360, race, etc. and a few of those naff sudoku / magic cubes that last 5 minutes and turn worse than a supertanker.

I wonder why they don't sell them apart from online?

Years ago I went to a fair and bought a barrel puzzle and I bought not at the same place a card cube with hearts, clubs etc. I also bought a tower puzzle which had beads in I think, last year I bought the Rubiks slide the electronic cube.

Basically you could buy them almost anywhere years ago.

Maybe it's because now most people go directly to the Apple store to buy ipods. Maybe it's because the cubing craze (or the puzzle craze in general) has diminished, and now people in the craze are buying high-quality cubes online that stores don't sell.
lol, here to help ^_~

I confess I've never actually completed a conventional 3x3x3 Rubiks cube, but I can do the barrel, octigan and tower. I do own an iPad 2 which I have the Rubik's apps but there's no substitute of holding well made cube.

I'd advise that you order it online; that way, you can order better quality cubes (either the V-Cube or the Rubik's Ice Cube, for example) for better prices. Still, the most likely place to find a Rubik's cube in the high street is in a toy shop - the original version will most likely be on sale.

Hope this helps. 8-)
