Years ago I recall having a puzzle that was clear, flexible silicone/rubber. It was ball shaped with 8 wedges in it such that they would form a sphere. You could manipulate the pieces inside by squishing the puzzle around. You could do this in such a way as to make it function like a 2x2 Rubik's cube. You could also manipulate the pieces in anyway you'd like - including making it non-spherical. So you could pop a piece out of place and move it to somewhere else. This would stretch out the rubber, but would not break unless you were careless.
Eventually a small hole formed in the rubber and expanded to the point that the pieces came out (I must have been careless). It felt like there was some sort of lube on the pieces to help them slide around. Because of the hole, I ended up throwing the puzzle away.

Does anyone have any more information on this, like specifically where I could purchase another one?

Looking back, I regret throwing it out, I probably could have repaired it using rubber cement or something along those lines. I just thoght at the time that I could get another one.

Thanks!

Do you have trouble distinguishing dreams from reality? Are you a regular user of LSD or other hallucinogenic drugs? Are you mad? If you answered YES to one or more of the above questions, then this puzzle does not exist :lol:
