This is universally enjoyed by participants. The only real "challenge" is for some who may find puzzles a little more time consuming...but this only encourages assistance for more 'puzzle-prone' teammates.
We bought these cubes for our live training class, and asked the trainees to write their "little nuggets of wisdom" on the cubes. Most took separate notes and then wrote on the cubes after the training ended. We've gotten quite a bit of postitive feedback from the trainees about the reminders they've created. The only drawback for me is that the sides are not cut the same, and therefore took a while to figure out how to put them together. As I don't like wasting our associate's time, I would have prefered a simple interlocking setup that would work for every side.
I use these puzzles for developing problem-solving in children. For motivation, I let them sign the puzzle when they complete it. I challenge them to complete it again, inside out, and to then add a star beside their name. Service and delivery were excellent.
