Review by Jeffrey
Seeing this reminds me of when I was a kid, because the Rubik's Cube was all the rage back in the eighties. It seemed like everyone
was playing with one of those foolish things. I get a fair amount of smug satisfaction out of the fact that I was one of the few who figured out a method for solving it without resorting to reading a cheat-sheet.
"I can solve it faster than you!"
"Yes, but did you figure out how to do it on your own?
That seemed to end the discussion right there!
The creation of the Rubik's Cube spawned a whole line of puzzle toys along a similar vein - the one I remember best was a pyramid. None of the other toys that were created subsequently were as durable or as interesting as the cube.
And now there is renewed interest again; every once in awhile the Rubik's Cube shows up on TV or in a movie, and suddenly everyone needs one again.
