  1. My son and I have had a lot of fun learning how to solve the 3×3 and 4×4 cubes. We hope you will do a 5×5 tutorial as well soon 🙂

    1. Hi there! 🙂

      5×5, 6×6, etc it’s soooo boring.
      I highly recommend you solve 3×3 shape modes such as a Twisty cube, Axis, Apple…
      We have a lot of different lessons! Let’s try it!
      It’s fun and much more interesting than 5×5, trust me!

      Happy cubing!
      Best wishes,
