Click a thumbnail to see its larger version and description.
The soviet versions of Rubiks Snake which were named ?????? or Zmeika or Snake.

Rubik's Snake was produced by several factories in the soviet union with as many names and even more subversions that can be distinguished by colour, package, textures or other details.
This entry contains all variants that were named ??????, transliterated Zmeika which translates to snake or sinous line.
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 first package.
The other packages show different prices.

The variants were produced in these factories/towns:
Images 1-5: Electrotochpribor, Omsk. 4 roubles.
Images 6-7: Electrotochpribor, Omsk. 4 roubles.
Images 8-13: Ural Optical-Mechanical Plant. Sverdlovsk. 2.20/3.30 roubles.
Images 14-16: Plant Automation I. Petrovsky. Kiev. 2.65 roubles.
Images 17-19: Stavropol. 4.50 roubles.
(The names of the plant were auto-translated with google)
There are two other entries with the remaining subversions.
