TOS Review ~ Scruble Cube

Can I just say, "WOW!" and leave it at that? This product has been a lot of FUN to review! So,

What is it? 

It is a cross between Scrabble and Rubik's Cube! It's Scruble Cube! Scruble Cube is an educational game that is played similar to Scrabble. You form words using the letters on the cube. Words can begin and end anywhere on the cube as long as they are in a straight line. You can manipulate the cube in a manner similar to a Rubik's Cube in order to form more words.

What do we Think?

We LOVE it! Unicorn used the Scruble Cube and the Scruble Cube PDF Worksheet from the website for practice finding words, counting up the points and looking up the words in the dictionary. She really enjoyed this game and I liked that it involved dictionary skills! I like that the instructions were easy to read and that they included 2 variations. In addition, I like that the website provides additional ways to use the cube and to make it even more educational that it already is.

One thing I do NOT care for is that it feels fragile. I would love to let my 5 year-old try to find words but I am scared to let her touch the cube. I would be very careful allowing young children (or rambunctious ones) to use this product.

  4. Thank you for being so honest, I would love it but am afraid it is too fragile for my boys and since they tend to play games together and this seems like a one player activity I'm not sure how much play time it would get. Might have to wait a year or so and think about it for next year.

    You are welcome. I keep mine up and only let my 11 year-old use it. It is a 1-4 player game though. You just need to be careful passing the cube from one person to the next! :)
