Take your GeoBending to the next level!
What does it take to become a GeoBender pro? There is no "Winning" GeoBender. It is a meditative process that never ends. You can discover how the cube flows, and you can master your understanding of the main shapes and learn how to form them quickly, and however else you wish to engage with these magic cubes is up to you!
We've organized these steps to walk you through some initial stages once you get the cubes. Please understand that if you struggle with any of these steps it does not mean you are bad at GeoBending, or anything of this nature. They are simply fun endeavors for you to engage with should you choose.
The 5 most important things to know about your GeoBenders when getting started with your collection:
Necessary cubes - 1 - 2
1: Learn to open and close the cube smoothly.
When you first encounter a GeoBender it can be a challenge to open the cube, let alone put it back into its starting shape once you've scrambled it up. Don't be intimidated though, once you understand how the folds work it becomes very simple and you'll be able to put it back in a cube with your eyes closed in no time. This is why we say "First it's a puzzle, then it's a toy."
2: Master the 6 Main Shapes.
The Cube, The Star, The Hive, The UFO, The Ball, The Dome. Can you make them all? Start from a cube and make each shape. Then start in a cube and cycle through making all of the shapes in under 1 minute, ending in a cube again. We call this cycle a "Main Flow." Bonus - take a video of this and tag us for a shoutout.
3: *Remember this mantra: If it doesn't flow, it doesn't go.
GeoBenders are extremely durable, but they are not indestructible. Do not force a bend if you are feeling resistance. Some transitions require a bit of finesse, and as you become more experienced you will quickly learn how the GeoBender likes to move. These are high quality products that we work hard to deliver at an affordable price, so please take care of them. If you do accidentally break a GeoBender, please contact our customer support and we will work with you to repair or replace your cube.
4: Understand how the "Complex magnetization" works.
GeoBenders contain "Complex Magnetism" which means there are 2 magnetic pulls in each cube. Many shapes have different magnetizations depending on the orientation of the artwork. Try connecting 2 or more cubes and you'll find that certain shapes only hold if they are oriented in a specific way.
5: Explore the magic of combining multiple GeoBenders.
Once you magnetize 2 or more cubes you will likely become captivated by the enchantment of these toys, and if you're anything like us you'll want to grow your collection and continue exploring GeoBenders immediately! A common phrase said around the GeoBender office is "We need more cubes!"

5: Magnetize your GeoBenders to a metal surface
Use a magnetic whiteboard, a metal fridge, a cabinet or any surface that your cubes will stick to and create some combinations using that as a base. It's amazing how a shift in the foundation of your builds can shift the creative process.
