I initially bought it as a gift, but wanted one for me too! I wish I had a list of all the words as I spend lots of time discovering the many options. Maybe that's a good task to assign a lucky someone! The rack could extend a half inch, which would mean the cubes less likely to fall off when moving it around. It's fun because one person can leave a phrase, and someone else comes along later and changes it only to be changed again by someone else. I actually bought 3 as gifts.

I feel this product was misrepresented. It looked like a great gift for bright kids and bought one for a well-read 8-year-old who likes poetry. Unfortunately, can't give it as a gift due to "sex" and "naked" being among the limited word choices. Product ad should say this is for adults only. Great idea, poorly delivered. Even for my home, with two older teens, the word combinations are limited. men women sex table naked... you get the picture.

Not as easy as you would think

Comments about UncommonGoods Words Cubed:

Many of the words you want to use are on the same block so it's tricky to use. More blocks or better organization of the words on the blocks would be better.

Comments about UncommonGoods Words Cubed:

I bought this as a Valentines Day present for my husband. It was a great gift and we have enjoyed the word play using it to make a message for the day. I have purchased several gifts through Uncommon Goods and am always satisfied. The products are good quality and I've never had an issue getting them sent to me in the time frame I expected. I would highly recommend them for quality, unique and interesting gifts.

Comments about UncommonGoods Words Cubed:

The family loves playing with the wording and making silly messages to each other! I only wish it was more family oriented (no sex, etc) and had a few better options (my, heart, etc)! But a great valentine's gift anyway!

    Comments about UncommonGoods Words Cubed:

    My business partner has a set, and I fiddled with it every single time I was near it. So, when I needed a fun, "just because" gift for my husband, this was the obvious choice. It has been a hit with our family, as well as guests in our home.

    I think it will be our go-to hostess gift from now on . . . such a hit!
    Thanks Uncommon Goods!
