Radica/cube World Toys / Obscene/sex acts on Cube World toys

Radica's Cube World interactive stick figure cube toys perform obscene acts on each other when linked together. If 2 cubes are placed together, the stick figure characters will interact. One stick figure will open a "door" and visit the other stick figure in his cube. There are several questionable actions that many parents would be concerned about, but the worst is that one stick figure will go through the motions of what can best be described as manual sexual stimulation or a "hand job" (sorry to be blunt) on the other stick figure.

When I called Radica (who is owned by Mattel) to complain, they said they had no plans to pull this toy from shelves and offered to reimburse me $10 if I sent back the cube toys. I asked to speak with a supervisor, and was basically told I would have to send my cubes in and after their crack team of QA had a look at it, then they'd evaluate. In other words, let's just wait till all the cubes are sold out and sweep it under the rug.

There are numerous complaints on other sites, including Amazon's product reviews, from people who have seen the same thing. For this company to continue to sell these toys to children (recommend age is 8) is completely negligent and disgusting.

    My sons and I have been watching the cube world stick guys for several months now and have seen no simulated sex acts. We have seen all manner of fights, brawls, and general picking on each other to include farting and smelly arm pits. We have cubes from all sets including mods and have set them in all manner of combinations. I have found them entertaining and have no problem letting my 6-year old watch them. Has anybody else seen the supposed simulated acts and on which cubes/cube combinations?

    I have seen all sorts of perverse sexual acts. You must have unlocked the special "adult mode" which you can get to through a certain key combination (google it, I won't post it here). Roman orgies, oral sex, Dirty Sanchez, Cleveland Steamroller, Rusty Trombone...it's meant to be humorous, I think...and it would be, if it were with girls, but the fact that all of my cubes are males and they're doing this is an abomination!

    I own all of the different types of cubes, and have watched them for hours trying to find any of these "sex acts" that this lady is talking about. For the life of me, I haven't found anything resembling anything of the sort. I think she must have quite an imagination. I also have Googled to find out about an "adult mode" suggested by the next comment, but I believe that person is referring to the Cube World PC game, which has nothing to do with the Radica Cube World, which has no way of entering any "key combinations" as there are just a couple buttons on it for playing the game. There is nothing to worry about as far as kids are concerned, who joke about farting and such all the time, which the stick figures will do.

    we kept our cubes awake for 6 hours just to see what would happen and sure enough one grabbed the others crotch and a question mark appeared over its head.that was all we saw, by the way why does one of the above writer think they are male? seem sex neutral to us.
