Click a thumbnail to see its larger version and description.
Rubik's Cube produced in the soviet union under license of politoys. The packages mimick those from politoys.

  • Inventor: Ern? Rubik
  • Mechanism: 3x3x3
  • Patents: Unknown
  • Producer: USSR
  • Year: 1980
  • Original Price: $7.50 USD
  • Current Price: No Data

This puzzle is named "?????????? ??????", transliterated "Magicheskii Kubik", which means "Magic Cube".
The 3x3x3 produced in the soviet union with the highest number of samples are the ones with the orange boxes to be seen in a separate entry.
In addition to that Politoys produced a version with russian language on their well known blue box (see the separate entries).
To make everything even more confusing Rubik's Cubes were produced in Kislovodsk (under license of politoys) with tiles instead of stickers. For these versions the factory printed their own variant of the blue boxes. This entry shows these three versions distinguishable by the packages.
The factory changed the logo in 1985 (!) from the CK-style to the bird-style.
The original price is based on the official exchange rate (0.6 roubles per dollar) although in socialist time this was completely theoretical. The price (in roubles) is printed on the package.
