    Oh those cubes annoy me!!!

    • Notmyyearoff April 26, 2013 / 10:33 am

      I gave up after a few minutes really – he loved playing with the colours mostly!

    • Notmyyearoff April 26, 2013 / 10:33 am

      Me either -it belongs to the hubby. Z mostly likes matching random pairs of colours together on it

  2. Emma April 20, 2013 / 7:18 pm

    They make me so angry, I’ve never been any good at solving them!

    • Notmyyearoff April 26, 2013 / 10:34 am

      Me too – apparently YouTube show you techniques on how to do it all but I don’t have any patience on it. The OH has been watching them non stop – he is determined to complete it!

    My Z is obsessed by the rubix cube! Good luck getting it back together LOL

    • Notmyyearoff April 26, 2013 / 10:35 am

      Ooh really? I wonder if they’ll finish it 🙂

  4. Elaine Livingstone April 20, 2013 / 7:33 pm

    no never did like them things even first time round. good luck with it.One way to keep them quiet in the car

  5. Chelseamamma April 20, 2013 / 7:43 pm

    Hate those things – can never complete them!

    • Notmyyearoff April 26, 2013 / 10:36 am

      Me either – but the OH and Little Z both seem very determined (well, OH is now hiding it so that little Z doesn’t mess it up!)

    Oh I should find a Rubik’s Cube for The Boy because he’d love it! Great photo, what does he think?

    Thanks for linking up to Project 365.

    • Notmyyearoff April 26, 2013 / 10:37 am

      He loves shouting out the colours and then twisting and finding more colours. Its about a fiver from Amazon. He loves it!

  7. An Exeter Mum April 20, 2013 / 8:32 pm

    Oh a Rubik’s! That’s a blast from my childhood. I remember when they first came out! Love the movement of his hands in this photo x

    • Notmyyearoff April 26, 2013 / 10:38 am

      We’d only just picked it up from the post office – he loved it!

  8. Mummyslittlepeeps April 20, 2013 / 9:14 pm

    Ah a Rubix cube, I remember me and my sister cheating and pulling the stickers off and putting them back in the right order…..hehe!

    • Notmyyearoff April 26, 2013 / 10:38 am

      Hehe that’s completely what I would do too!

  9. nlwmummy April 20, 2013 / 9:50 pm

    He looks to be engrossed in that 🙂 I have never been able to figure out how to do these so frustrating!

    • Notmyyearoff April 26, 2013 / 10:39 am

      They are SO Frustrating -I gave up after about half an hour.

  10. jenny paulin April 20, 2013 / 9:58 pm

    a Rubiks cube??? new design? i remember my brother and i having one and i never cracked it. i hope he has better luck x

    • Notmyyearoff April 26, 2013 / 10:39 am

      Yep they seem to be slightly smaller than the original ones and bit lighter too.

  11. Nikki Thomas April 21, 2013 / 6:50 am

    Aw he looks so cute with is spongebob hat!! I have never managed to do a Rubik’s cube ever, so I hope he has more luck than me!

    • Notmyyearoff April 26, 2013 / 10:44 am

      Not unless he sits with his dad watching all the videos on how to do it all 🙂

  12. Sarah MumofThree World April 21, 2013 / 6:41 am

    A Rubik’s cube! He looks like he’s doing it at about 100mph – he’s a blur 🙂

    • Notmyyearoff April 26, 2013 / 10:41 am

      He was loving spinning all the bits around and then shouting out his favourite colours!

    • Notmyyearoff April 26, 2013 / 10:42 am

      It does – its great in the car because its so light to hold too (rather than a big book!)

  13. Kelly Wiffin April 21, 2013 / 7:09 am

    I could never do a Rubix Cube! Lovely photo!

  14. sarahhillwheeler April 21, 2013 / 7:12 am

    This brings back some old memories. Love the spong bob hat too.

  15. Sonya Cisco April 21, 2013 / 7:24 am

    Peel the stickers off and stick ’em back on again! Its the only way!

    • Notmyyearoff April 26, 2013 / 10:45 am

      I have never ever ever done this *cough*

  16. Shell Louise April 21, 2013 / 7:58 am

    I have to admit I’m a sticker peeler! Love his spongebob hat 🙂

  17. Miss_Biggun April 21, 2013 / 8:11 am

    The concentration is awesome, could never do the Rubix myself, those fingers look like someone is getting it done pretty fast.

    I love the hat too!

    • Notmyyearoff April 26, 2013 / 10:46 am

      Kept him busy for a while – we ended up with a whole rainbow of colours though 😀

  18. fivegoblogging April 21, 2013 / 9:34 am

    I never mastered the Rubiks cube, even with cheats instructions. I bet he has it sussed within the week 🙂

  19. shahnaz April 21, 2013 / 8:35 am

    How cute..will keep him entertained for the journey x

    • Notmyyearoff April 26, 2013 / 10:48 am

      It belongs to my OH but he decided to adopt it for a while.

  20. Karen April 21, 2013 / 8:43 am

    My husband can do it and Poppys eager to learn how 🙂

  21. Erica Price April 21, 2013 / 8:46 am

    Very cute – can he do it? I can do about 3/4 of it,but get stuck at the last bit.

    • Notmyyearoff April 26, 2013 / 10:49 am

      I don’t have the first clue – at a push I could maybe do just the one side!

    • Notmyyearoff April 26, 2013 / 11:32 am

      Nope – he liked the colours though. 😀

  22. manycoloured April 21, 2013 / 11:58 am

    Can’t start early enough. Good for him!

    • Notmyyearoff April 26, 2013 / 11:42 am

      Haha – I think it may be a complete passing phase 🙂

  23. Lous Lake Views April 21, 2013 / 1:23 pm

    I love the movement of his hands he looks like a child genius solving it really quickly!

    • Notmyyearoff April 26, 2013 / 11:43 am

      He really likes doing that – makes him look like a little genius. He’s not solved it yet though!

  24. Seaside Family April 21, 2013 / 1:54 pm

    Did he finish it? I think you need to have a word with MENSA if he did 🙂

    • Notmyyearoff April 26, 2013 / 11:43 am

      I am keeping a very close eye on him to see!

  25. ghostwritermummy April 21, 2013 / 2:44 pm

    Dont tell me he did it?! In 35 years I have NEVER managed it!!!
    xx

    • Notmyyearoff April 26, 2013 / 11:44 am

      He didn’t but he did like matching the odd colour together – then spinning it around mostly!

  26. sam April 21, 2013 / 3:58 pm

    Can he do it?! x

  27. Charly Dove April 21, 2013 / 4:07 pm

    Such a gorgeous photo! I was rubbish at Rubik’s cubes, my brother on the other hand was a complete whizz 🙂

    • Notmyyearoff April 26, 2013 / 11:45 am

      I’ve always been utter rubbish at it too – I don’t even think a cheat would help me!

  28. Helen April 21, 2013 / 6:08 pm

    I have never been able to do it!! I am sure I never will either! Great picture!

    • Notmyyearoff April 26, 2013 / 11:51 am

      I dont think I have the patience either tbh! The boys is our house seem to love the thing though!

  29. deborabora April 21, 2013 / 6:15 pm

    Ooh rubik’s cube – can he do it? Twice I’ve had someone try to show me how to do it but I just can’t get it!

  30. helloitsgemma April 21, 2013 / 7:40 pm

    child genius!

  31. Karen April 21, 2013 / 8:03 pm

    Lovely photo! I remember peeling the stickers of one of those Rubix cube things, because I just couldn’t get the hang of it! 🙂

  32. HPMcQ April 21, 2013 / 8:31 pm

    wow he is starting that young!

  33. Mrs Darling April 21, 2013 / 9:46 pm

    Gorgeous picture 🙂 I didn’t realise you could get Rubix cubes again! *dashes to shops*

  34. Red Rose Mummy April 21, 2013 / 10:58 pm

    This made me smile, he looks so engrossed in it. Genius Z.

  35. Funky Wellies April 22, 2013 / 7:33 pm

    What a blast from the past!! He seems very good at it! xx

  36. Emma April 24, 2013 / 9:13 am

    Look at his hands moving in a blur, looks quite the expert to me! 🙂
