My husband made me put my "toys" in storage. As I was doing so my Rubik's ball hit the floor and shattered. One of the center squares broke off at the stem. Is there any way to fix this, or am I better off tossing it and trying to find a new one? I know it's not worth much, but other than The Rabbits, my collection is complete and I hate to not have it.

By the way, if anyone knows of a source for the Rabbit I would love to have one. (wishful thinking I know!)

Thanks for any help you can give me.

Roxanne

I'm not sure if you mean Rubik's World puzzle or the usual slightly smaller 3x3x3 ball version with 6 colors. Either way, the center spindles on all of these seem to be pretty wimpy. I broke one too.

You may be able to get away with taking a standard cube apart and using the center piece from that.

Or see if you can't find one on sale on eBay or some other source. It will eventually pop up if it's one of the standard 6 color spherical cubes. It probably wouldn't be worth the trouble of taking it apart to try and reassemble it if you can buy it for less than $20US or so.
