I gave this to my best friend on his birthday. I thought it was great that I could give him 3 puzzles for one low price. He loves them. We used them togethere for a while, taking turns with each and trying to solve. They are very challenging, and my friend is able to solve a normal 3x3 in under a minute but these were a challenge for him! They are smooth to turn, they come in a nice brown box, great for gift giving. They also come with a stand to show off your finished work!
