The Rubik’s Cube is a 3-D combination puzzle originally invented in 1974 by Hungarian sculptor and professor of architecture Ern? Rubik. Originally called the Magic Cube, the puzzle was licensed by Rubik to be sold by Pentangle Puzzles in the UK in 1978, and then by Ideal Toy Corp in 1980.
The cube was released internationally in 1980 and became one of the most recognized icons in popular culture. It won the 1980 German Game of the Year special award for Best Puzzle.
This vintage, sealed example of a 1980 Ideal Toy Rubik’s Cube made its way to GXG HQ courtesy of Jon at @WagnersTechTalk , and in this video we highlight this wonderful gift and rearrange a bit of the set to give it a new home!
