I was at Toy's R us today and found they had the new pocket puzzle Rubick's Rings. It is two interlocking rings with 34 colored marbles that
must be seperated into red, yellow, and blue. Not
a bad puzzle for $4.99.

Hi Steve,

Does it look the same as the old Hungarian rings puzzle that is on Hendrick's site?

The Rubik's Rings are not flat but bent in the 2 ring intersection at about 120 degrees. Also
there is no gap in the marbles. This is what makes it a bit tricky because you exchange 2
marbles at the same time (at the 2 ring intersections) so you must solve the colors at the same time.
I checked on the Rubik site but they do not have a picture yet.

Original Hungarian rings from eighties have 38 marbles (10 black, 10 red, 9 blue, and 9 yellow ones).

I've looked all over NYC for this puzzle but I haven't found it yet. Was this Toys'r'us in the USA?

Yes I found it at Toy's R Us in Chicago. I went back to the store yesterday and bought the last one. It was hard to find in back of a pile of
skewbs.
