I now have plastic and Foam Tiles available for standard sized 3x3x3 cubes.

The plastic tiles are 5/8 of an inch square with slightly rounded corners, similar to the original Ideal Toy cubes. They are quite thin, about a third of one millimetre. Colours available: white, blue, yellow, red, green, purple, midnight blue (close to black) and pink.

Price is $5 U.S. per set (54 plastic tiles) with your choice of colours. This includes air mail postage world-wide.

The foam tiles are 5/8 of an inch square with slightly rounded corners. The material is 1/16th of an inch thick. Colours available are: white, blue, red, black, yellow and green.

Price is $3 U.S. per set (54 foam tiles) with 6 colours. This includes air mail postage world-wide.

Felt pieces will be available soon. I'll post prices here soon.

Payment is via paypal to mark@cubeman.org
or email me for alternatives.

I'm using contact cement to glue the tiles onto the cube so later I should have some pictures

Now for the surprise...

I'm hoping to have a proper glow in the dark cube with 6 contrasting colours soon. The colours will be white, blue, orange, violet, green and yellow. Basically standard cube colours with violet instead of red. Hopefully the first examples will be available within a month, we'll see how it goes.

A fully glow-in-the-dark cube has been on a lot of wish lists for a long time. Please put me down for one, Mark!

Mmm... real 70s chic. Might be nice to sticker a siamese cube and hang it on a car's rearview mirror. Was that the general idea? :wink:

I considered doing a Rubik's cube equivalent of a set of 'furry dice' for my car, but decided against it as being too distracting. These felt cube stickers would have been just the thing for that. They look quite neat.

P.S. Are furry dice typically English or do they exist in the US too?

No, unfortunately they exists here in Canada, and in the USA too. :?
It's unbelievable the things people hang from their rear view mirrors,
the Funny Dice was a fade several years ago, as the Garfield stuck in the window, the Baby onboard sign,
the waving hand, the dogs that have heads that "wobble", and way back (i don't know what they we're called)
you know the little furry mexican sumbrero balls that were glued to the inside of the car's ceilling
....hope that trend doesn't come back...so kitsch !

Keep on cubing ! Man

Michael

No it wasn't but it wouldn't be difficult to punch little dots into the felt :)

Here is a picture of the foam set:
