A confusing twelve sided puzzle, closely related to the Megaminx.
Came in two varieties: painted surfaces or stickers. Since the design of the puzzle practically forces the stickers to peel before too long, the painted variety is likely a later edition.
This is an odd puzzle to solve, and never really looks complete unless you know what you're looking for. The puzzle is solved when each pair of parallel planes is made up of only one colour. To see a plane, however, you have to look "past" the five pieces on top of it, all of which could/should have different colours than the plane you're solving.
There are actually two or three dozen solved variations, based on how the planes of colors intersect, but unless you know what to look for it's hard to impossible to tell the difference in a casual glance. There are twelve stars and six colors, which means that each color has two parallel planes. Its shape is called "Great dodecahedron" which is one of the four Kepler-Poinsot polyhedra.
Molded into the plastic of the bottom of the original package are the following groups of text: "© IDEAL TOY Co LTD" and "7M-6998-01"
