A lot of people has asked me where to buy a Rubik’s Cube and which model should they choose (original 3×3, professional, …). As “Rubik” is a trademark, the only cubes that can be legally called “Rubik’s Cubes” are those made by Rubik’s. So they are the best (and unique) Rubik’s Cubes. You can buy a Rubik’s Cube in Amazon:
However, there are a lot of different cubes and most of them can be used in Rubik’s Cube competitions. These cubes differ in quality and price. Paying more does not always mean buying a better cube.
So, which cube should I buy?
There is a wide variety of brands, prices and qualities of 3×3 cubes. I have selected three of the best cubes in quality and price, depending on how much money you want to spend.
- Cheaper 3×3 cube. The Qiyi MS 3×3 cube is a good quality cube ideal for those who want to learn how to solve the cube or for those beginners who want to solve it fast. Better quality and lower price than those sold by Rubik’s
- High quality 3×3 cubes. The Moyu Weilong GTS2 M cube was used to beat the world record for solving a Rubik’s cube, while the GAN 356 XS was used to obtain the best average of 5 cubes. In short, they are both very high quality cubes.
Where to buy a professional 3×3 cube?
You won’t find these cubes in physical stores, you’ll have to buy them online. I always buy in the AliExpress store, as they are reliable (I have bought many times). They have very low prices and, in many cases, free shipping (whatever you buy).
A good quality cube at the best possible price. Ideal to learn how to solve it and get started in speedcubing (solve it fast).
With this cube the world record in solving the Rubik’s cube was broken (3.47 seconds). It is the most economical option among the best cubes. Be sure to choose the “2M” model.
This cube was used to break the Rubik’s cube average record. Surely the best cube in the world. Its only problem is its high price.
