Sorry for not having pictures, but my camera's memory card has vanished. I'll try to describe it:


It's a loop of pieces that hinge (but the hinging points don't move like on a magic), and there are 12 of them. It can be manipulated to form a cube, and it can be remanipulated to form a rhombic dodecahedron with a cubic hollow inside. The pieces are pink, orange, and a bluish-purple. One sticker (an orange one) has an oriental character of some kind (I don't know enough to tell what language/alphabet it belongs to), and below that it says, "Yoshimoto", and below that it says "© 1988 KPT Made in Singapore".

I got this puzzle years ago at a garage sale, and I've never really known what it is. Any ideas?

Thanks! :)

A Yoshimoto Cube perhaps?

Sounds like a Yoshimoto cube to me.
