My middle daughter, Rebecca, solved the 3x3x3 for the first time this morning. Her first timed solve was 3:18. She is 6 years old. (She turns 7 later this month.)

We'll see whether or not I can persuade her to do the competition solves this weekend.
THAT'S REALLY COOL! I intend to do the same if I ever have children I hope to see her turn into a great cuber someday!

Wow, that's reviving an ancient post! It has been 12 years - she is now 18, and graduates from high school this year. Unfortunately she mostly lost interest in speedsolving, although she can still solve a cube fairly consistently in less than a minute.

But she did participate in the speedsolving community for a while. She and her older sister both were judges at the 2013 World Championships.

learnt 2 step pll :)
now i have to relearn 2 oll algs (bowtie and headlights) because the 2x2 version ruins the cross and isn't 2 gen
For bowtie I suggest:

F' r U R' U' r' F R
or
x' R U' R' D R U R' D' x

For headlights:

R2 D' R U2 R' D R U2 R
or
R U R' U R U2 R2 U' R U' R' U2 R

I actually use one or another depending of angle

single: 3:33.53 → 3:31.462
ao50: 4:08.x → 4:04.x
ao100: 4:14.x → 4:13.x

Cranking out more solves on them magnetic sevens. A few more hours of solving should make me solidly sub-4:00, but that'll probably have to wait for next weekend.

The 3 last days, I've focused on PLL learning and other thing. I've paused PB attempts but I still got my first sub 35 without really trying.
my previous pb was a PLL skip, the new one isn't which is encouraging.
As soon as I will know every PLL, I will try hard and I think I will be able to get sub 25 in a week :)
