The soviet versions of Rubiks Snake which were named Volshebnaia palochka or Igrushka Golovolomka.

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 Igrushka Golovolomka meaning toy puzzle.
The alternative name on the package and the leaflet is ????????? ???????, transliterated Volshebnaia palochka which translates to magic wand.
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 1-3: Plant "Mayak" city of Kirov. 2.50 roubles.
Images 4-6: Plant "Mayak" city of Kirov. 4 roubles.
(the names of the plants were auto-translated with google)
