Ernö Rubik invented his famous cube in the spring of 1974 as a working model to help explain three-dimensional geometry and ended up creating the world's best-selling toy. He began selling it in 1977 in his home town of Budapest, Hungary, as the “Magic Cube.” The renamed Rubik’s Cube was introduced to the U.S. in 1980, selling 100 million cubes worldwide by 1982. 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. The mania spawned a micro industry of guidebooks and even had its own TV series on ABC.
Now with 300 million Rubik's Cubes sold worldwide, Rubik’s has created a name that appeals, and is highly recognizable, to people of all ages. The 3-D game provides endless fun and brand exposure to anyone that likes a challenge, particularly people in industries related to engineering, architecture, entertainment, education, design and fashion.
