When non-cubers look at the 2x2x2, some think it must be really easy, others wonder whether it would actually be harder, the reality is that it is easier, but not trivial. It has 3674160 combinations and the best cubers can consistently solve it in 1-2 seconds, having completely planned the solve out in inspection. I stock lots of the best 2x2x2 speedcubes, the design usually involves a hidden edge piece inside and often one corner piece being locked in place while the other pieces are free to move around it.
