LOVE that Rubik's Cube! As a teenager I spent hours and hours and hours working on that thing, and I still have the original (distributed by Ideal Toy Co.). Soon other such toys followed - Rubik's Revenge, Star of Alexander, Pyraminx, Rubik's Snake, all of them. I did them all. Such creative educational fun.

These things annoyed the teachers when we used them during study hall, and of course in class. Since there were smaller Cubes on keychains, playing with one of them was a great diversion if you were bored.

Thank you, Erno Rubik for all the joy you've given us!

I am still puzzled as to how it can make the changes in all directions.

I've never been able to solve this without a guide. Now there are people who can solve three at the same time while juggling them.

Has any one got an idea of how much money hes made from the puzzling game?
