A version of the 3x3x3 from the 1980s produced in bulgaria.

Obviously during the cube craze some 3x3x3s were produced in bulgaria too. This is one sample of those cubes.
The cube inside the packaging has a different color scheme (BYO instead of BOY) and special coarse stickers.
The original price given here is based on the theoretical exchange rate of communist times.

The Rubik's Cube is a pleasant logical game, aimed to develop the mental aptitudes and stereoscopic view of children and adults. The goal of the game is to arrange in the same color each of the 6 lateral faces by turning the cube in different directions. The player who can arrange one color in 15-20 sec. has good logical skills.
The inventor of the Cube is a Hungarian scientist Ernő Rubik. He defines his invention as follows: ''This cube is a game for children and adults who like to find a solution to problems and who like playing.''
We wish you good luck with this game!
