Sometime last year, before the fidget spinner craze began, CM became obsessed with Rubik’s cubes. A familiar part of my childhood, there is a not only a sense of nostalgia but also a feeling of wellness, that such puzzles are as inspiring as they always have been. Not able to get the hang of the cube, B and E were over the moon to receive the brand-new range of Rubik’s Junior puzzles launched by John Adams. Bringing a younger audience into the Rubik family, these pet puzzles are perfect for children as young as four years old. Instantly identifiable animals, and a price point of £9.99, these are a great collectable to inspire pennies to be saved.
They’re a great toy for car journeys, small enough to fit in a bag means they’re great for taking to restaurants and places where any degree of waiting around is involved.
For my two, they are the perfect back to school treat. We’ve been trying to work on E’s fine motor skills, so Rubik’s Junior puzzles are absolutely perfect for this. They also encourage the boys to sit down and think, to problem solve.
And , of course, there’s been the fun of their frustration. It’s been great to see how determined they are to see all the colours back together. The click – click as the puzzle turns and rotates becoming an accompaniment to after-school life.The Rubik’s Junior puzzle collection include a puppy, bunny, kitten and bear. I have a bunny and kitten available as a giveaway to share this puzzle craze.
