This is something I built a while back, I'm really not sure what to call it.
The centers are fixed, so only the edges and corners move. Solving it is very similar to solving a normal 3x3x3, except that the last layer is done a little differently. I just figured out how to solve it a few days ago. The color scheme is really random
Most of the pieces are wooden, but 2 are made from polymer clay. I know, I know, it's brittle, but I didn't have anything better to use at the time

Unfortunately, I have no cats/ducks to take pictures with...
