Hello Everyone

Could someone please assist me in indentifying these two Earth 2x2x2 puzzles.

The black Earth (Left) has better turning than the blue Earth (Right) and is about 1/3 of the size bigger. Both bare the name 'K-Ball', however I am unsure as to weather that is the brand or name of the puzzle. I would love for somone to give me a date as to when they were produced and what brand they are.

Thank you in advance

I have the one on the left, it's a Mensa world orb puzzle. I think it was sold a while back by Mensa. :D

I think I have a few spare K-Ball Earth puzzles if anyone is interested. They were sold in Japan by a Japanese company but made in China. They're black, 2x2x2. I haven't seen any blue ones.

Thank you all for your replies, you have help me greatly.

The reason for me not knowing anything about them is that; the Black K-Ball (my Dads) was given to him several years ago as a present, before I was into cubing. And the Blue K-Ball (mine) was bought second hand for just over 0.50GBP.

Again thank you for your help.
