Rubik's Cube is the incredibly addictive, multi-dimensional challenge that has fascinated puzzle fans around the world since 1980. With "43 Quintillion" possible moves and only "ONE" solution... nearly one in every five people in the world has twisted, jumbled and enjoyed this immensely popular puzzle.
Rubik's Cube is a six-sided, 3 x 3 cube puzzle with each side of Printed Polypropylene Plastic Stickers (bright colors - life of 750,000 rubs) solid color when you receive it. The object is to twist and turn the Cube using various combinations to return it to its original state - every side finally having one solid color.

Erno Rubik invented the Cube in the spring of 1974 in his home town of Budapest, Hungary. He wanted a working model to help explain three-dimensional geometry and ended up creating the world's best-selling toy.
More than 300 million Rubik's Cubes have been sold worldwide. If all the cubes were placed on top of each other they would reach the top of Mount Everest, twice!
At the height of the Rubik's craze in the mid-1980s, it was estimated that one-fifth of the world's population had played the Cube.
Rubik's Cube has featured in hundreds of books, magazines, TV shows and movies. Millions of web pages, blogs and YouTube videos are now dedicated to cubing.
'Cubing' still infects people of all ages. 'Cubaholics' are said to suffer from 'Rubik's wrist' and 'Cubist's thumb'!
National and international 'speedcubing' championships have been held regularly since 2003.
