The Rubik’s Cube has been tantalising and enchanting people for over 40 years. It was created in 1974 and is the world’s best-selling toy ever!
Ernõ Rubik, a professor from Budapest In Hungary, wanted to help his students understand three-dimensional problems. His solution? The Rubik’s Cube!
His solid cube did things that the world hadn't seen before. It twisted and turned yet it didn’t break. Adding 54 colourful stickers to the six sides gave this amazing puzzle its iconic look. When Ernõ Rubik built his first Cube, it took him over a month to solve it.
At that time, he didn’t know that his “Magic Cube” – “Buvos Kocka” in Hungarian - would take the world by storm.Speedcubing Timeline
