This puzzle consists of three layers with six holes each. The upper and lower layers can be rotated. Two of the marble of the middle layer can be pushed out to the small gaps in the surrounding frame. These holes allow the remaining marbles to be moved.
There are 18 marbles. 6 Marbles for each of the three colours blue, red and yellow.
The images of the pink version (image 6-7) steem from a perfect copy made by Anthony Greenhill in 2005. As can be seen from the images here there are many versions with different body colours.
?????? transliterated Tsvetok meaning "Flower" aka "Festival flower" is the emblem of the World Festival of Youth and Students, and the puzzle was released in 1985 to the XII festival, which took place in Moscow. It came with a packaging out of paper and clear plastic.
There is another version "Fill The Circle" (transliterated "Telefonchik") with an identical mechanism but a shape which does not resemble a flower.
The original price given here 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.
