Another variant of Rubik's Snake from the USSR, with corrugated pieces. This came in several different colours too.

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 one is named ????????????? ???, transliterated Zanimatelnyi shar, meaning "entertaining ball".
This variant of Rubik's snake is unusual because its parts corrugated, and other parts look like a wafer. Even these versions were produced in several colours and in at least two different packages.
They were produced in Gorky (now Nizhny Novgorod), at the plant named after "Popov".

The original price is based on the official exchange rate (0.6 roubles per dollar) and the price printed on the cubical package although in socialist time this was completely theoretical. The price on the cuboidal package is 0.30 roubles lower.
The price for the variant from Rostov was 3.50 roubles.
