The Rubik's Brand cubes are VERY hard to turn. There are other cubes you can buy online which are much easier to turn. (Here is a list of some popular speedcubes. [reddit.com] they will cost a bit more, but they will be much easier to turn and will last quite a while.) It is difficult to solve if you are attempting to create your own algorithms to solve it. Most people solve these cubes using stages and algorithms developed by others. I made a Powerpoint and PDF for my students (I taught the Rubik's Cube to over thirty 7th and 8th graders in an after-school club over a couple of years) with easy to follow instructions using a simple set of algorithms. If you end up buying a good cube that is easy on the ol' arthritis, send me a DM, and I will send you a link to download the docs. Smilie

I've never used one of these… does anyone know if things like this has any demonstrated positive effect on any cognitive abilities,memory ability… or anything like that, especially for the elderly? I'm looking for constructive, fun puzzles and things for elderly. One has arthritis-like problem, would it be difficult to manipulate?.... Is it actually fun to do? difficult for the average person to solve? ...... Rocket, sorry I didn't mean to respond to you in particular

It is very fun to solve and time consuming. I had to cheat and find directions on how to solve. It can be taken apart and the pieces lubed with Vaseline if want it to be super easy to twist.

Thanks for reply. Very time consuming? Does it rely on your memory a lot? Who is good at it? Someone who is good at math? Some kind of spatial ability?. One elderly person I'm thinking about loves doing sudoku for some reason I cannot fathom, Will spend much too much time on it to the detriment of other things… don't want it to be a frustrating, super time-consuming thing. It's cheap enough I guess I could just try it. but I myself cannot imagine this being much fun.. When I have time, much rather run around outside...

Wow, didn't realize this was a sale price! Spitballers had a segment about Rubik's cubes, so my husband and I decided to get one for fun. I did think $3.44 was pretty cheap but thought it was just the typical price Stick Out Tongue

Dude, with all those questions and conditions, just get a plant. Better yet, a plastic plant. No work and no commitment.

It's a toy.

Just bought one last week. It is easy to manipulate and the colors are molded into the cubes, not stickers like the ones I had as a kid. Packaging from Amazon was very sturdy.

This would be appropriate for anyone with and active mind, but not memory loss. It is too difficult for someone with Alzheimer's in my opinion. As for dexterity, it can be good for physical therapy, so long as the person has interest in solving the puzzle. For arthritis, it depends on the degree.

If you are good at recognizing patterns and have good spatial awareness, you would probably be pretty decent. It is only time consuming if, like anything in life, you find yourself enjoying the process of solving it and/or improving your speed at solving it. You may find that you enjoy it so much that you start to purchase cubes of other sizes (or even twisty puzzles of other shapes, like pyramids and dodecahedrons,) I don't spend an inordinate amount of time solving the puzzles in my collection...too busy with relationships, kids, and teaching. But every now and then, on a Saturday morning perhaps, I might dust one of them off and see if I remember the algorithms.
