Another famous toy of the 80s, the Rubik's Cube. Though it was invented in 1974 by Erno Rubik, under the name of Magic Cube it didn't become popular until 1980 when it was licensed by Rubik to be sold by the toys company Ideal Toys in the American market. During the 80s it became a worldwide success and an iconic toy of the decade, it is the world's top-selling puzzle game and widely considered to be the world's best-selling toy.

Since 1980, all kind of Rubik's Cube competitions started to take place all around the world.

It measures 2.25 inches (5.7 cm) on each side, consists of a 3x3x3 assortment of 26 coloured squares. The puzzle is simple (to understand), you must end up with only one color on each side by twisting the rows of squares around; now the taugh part is solving it.

If you are a child of the 80s you most probably played with it or you have seen a friend of yours trying to solve the maddening puzzle.
