What is it about magnets that can keep adults and kids alike busy "playing" for hours? Well, maybe not hours, but certainly minutes. Here my son and his auntie Gisele are enjoying a hands-on exhibit at the Children's Museum in NH that features magnets of all sizes.
The CyberCube is a very portable "mini-exhibit" of magnets that is meant to challenge with it's many puzzles. Thank you to Nicholas for sending me a CyberCube for this review.

The Review: I received the 224 piece black CyberCube for this reivew. The CyberCube arrived in its little black tin in a perfect cube. I took a moment to admire it, thinking that we would never get it into a perfect cube again. Everybody grabbed for it, played with it, and played with it some more, and it wasn't until quite a while later that I finally got a chance to check it out.
CyberCube claims the strength of their product is phenomenal, and that is not an overstatement. The attraction is so strong, that manipulating the magnets took effort. Although we all tried, no one has been able to put the CyberCube back into its original cube! I think once we master that, we can attempt the Celtic Cross, the Hope Star and the Royal Neckwear designs shown on the insert.
In the meantime, I wonder if the folks over at CyberCube would be impressed with my two creations:
Hey, I have to start somewhere right?
Here is a short video demonstration of the CyberCube by my niece Marie.
The CyberCube isn't for children under three, due to its very small round magnets. It is certainly a challenge for those inclined to solve its many puzzles, and for the rest of us that just like playing around with magnets, the CyberCube is a lot of fun!
