Review:
Hoberman Designs has breathed new life into Rubik’s Cube, the clever, geometrical toy that captivated a generation. Like its predecessor, Brain Twist grabs one’s attention and holds it for hours of intelligent, puzzle-solving play. And like other Hoberman innovations, Brain Twist challenges the way we look at things by promoting the development of three-dimensional thought.

I carried Brain Twist in my purse for several weeks and gave it to many different people in a variety of settings - from children in the waiting room at my dentist’s office to the repairmen in the service department at my Mitsubishi dealership. Everyone, everywhere had the same reaction to it: “Wow! This is great. Do you know how to solve it?” Age, gender, and education level do not impact on an individual’s enjoyment of this first-rate toy.
