We liked: The way the cube has little hand pictures pointing to show you which bit to open up next. As home educators, we’re always looking for ways of building learning into every day life – this is more of a conversation starter than a real educational aid but it certainly worked for that. We had some fascinating conversations, both with our 10 year old, and between the parents. So not necessarily one just for the children!
We weren’t keen: This cube book can be a little confusing in that there are different formats used for the information – you’ve got a map that you can look at when the cube is folded out flat, if that makes any sense, then a number of countries that get a whole face of a small cube, and another set that have half a face each. That does mean there’s an awful lot of information on there, but it also means that it’s quite difficult to find it all.
Overall: Great car toy, or party gift, somewhat mesmerizing to fiddle with.
