Scruble Cube-A TOS Review

Growing up with several Rubik's cubes in the house this cube really intrigued me and I couldn't wait to get my hands on the Scruble Cube and try it out but I had to wait my turn.  Makenzie (my 11 yr old daughter) had a house full of girls the day the Scruble Cube arrived in the mail and as soon as I opened it and explained what it was they took it and immediately started playing with it.  Of course they didn't wait for me to read the rules and already had it figured out before I found the instructions in the box.  I was happy to see they were spelling harder and harder words trying to beat the previous girls score.  Yep, it's a keeper 7 out of the 7 girls approved and thought it was a toy and NOT an educational toy either.  That made me smile to myself.

The Scruble Cube really reminds me of a cross between Rubik's cube with letters and Scrabble.  This product is recommended for ages 8 and up but I really think younger children would be able to use it with a little help from mom or dad.  It retails for $24.95 and comes with the cube, a score pad of paper and a sand timer and of course the instructions and a getting started guide.  Scruble Cube has been awarded the Seal of Excellence for the 2010 Creative Toy Awards by Creative Child Magazine and Best Picks New Products by Dr. Toy.

The other day I went outside and was checking on the kids to see what they were doing and they were playing Scruble Cube in our backyard during free time!  Kylan was playing while swinging in the hammock and Makenzie would then try to beat his word, good times at the Wedemeyer house!
