Recently, we’ve seen a surge in action figures with a creative twist. Inspired by childhood classics, clever designers have come up with a cast of quirky characters, including an enlightened troop of Yoga Joes, a team of Art History heroes, and now the cute and quirky Cubebot.
Designed by David Weeks, this little wooden toy is much more than meets the eye. Fun and flexible, Cubebot is part desk decoration, part robot, and part puzzle. Specifically, this bot is based on the Japanese Kumi-ki puzzle, a game renowned for its sturdy composition and ability to be posed hundreds of ways—including a perfect cube.
In order to put a contemporary spin on this pastime, Weeks has opted to breathe a bit of life into his puzzles. With a bulky body and endearing expression, each Cubebot is packed with personality, whether wearing au naturel tones or decked out in a multicolored ensemble. In either case, this little guy is bound to brighten up puzzle playtime.
