Birchbox Breakdown

Transforming robots are the coolest—we can all agree on that. But keeping an Optimus Prime figurine on your desk? Probably not the best way to score a promotion. Opt instead for this Rubik’s Cube-like robot, inspired by Japanese Shinto Kumi-ki puzzles. Its hardwood frame can hold any number of poses—and when big clients come by the office, simply fold into an unassuming cube, and no one’s the wiser.

How it Works

Sustainable cherry wood ensures durability, while elastic band “muscles” make for a limitless number of potential poses. Hat’s off if you have the puzzle-solving prowess to collapse the robot back to its perfect 2.5-inch cube state—it’s not as tough as a Rubik’s, but will definitely take some practice.

How to Use

Bend the Cubebot frame into various action stances, then fold into a cube when you’re done. Use as a desktop accent, paperweight, or gift to your favorite three-year-old.

The Way Toys Should Be
Purchased

I love this little guy. I'm an artist and love using it as a puzzler while I'm thinking or to use in lieu of one of the generic wooden models you always see. Made of sustainable materials, small enough for a kid (or full-grown man) to carry around, and versatile in its positions. Price is right, too!

Great gift!

My husband bought one of these for our daughter, and our whole family loves playing with it. It is really fund to change the robot into a cube and back, and not as easy as you think it would be.

so cute!

Perfect gift for my nephew. Really well made, unique, and much better than video games. Nice for stocking stuffers for this holiday season!

Cool idea but

not really worth the price. I got it for my boyfriend and he thought it was cool. But he has already found another cool thing to play with. I will say that it was well made.
