Hi
I think it is time again to ask the crowd for help.
Does anybody own the Grippe package in the first image? If yes, can you help me and send me a images showing it from both sides and without the number applied to it here?

Can somebody translate the writings in the second and the third image?
Does somebody own them and/or can tell me more?

For the big Chinese Characters:

智力
转盘

And Google translate says:

Intelligence
Turntable

But it could be translated as any of {mental, intelligence} {ring, wheel, dial, carousel, turntable}

For the small ones::
让您着迷的环形数学智刀转盘

Which Google translate as "Fascinate you wheel ring mathematical wisdom knife" however some alternate translations read like:

Let you be fascinated by the mathematical wisdom ring cutter wheel

Or

Fascinate you turnable ring math puzzle

Edit: based on Google image searches, the text seems like a generic description / slogan rather than a name of the puzzle.

Edit 2: here is some more information about a very similar puzzle named the "Top Spin": http://elinkage.com/RubikPuzzles/topspin.htm The Chinese version might be a KO of the "Top Spin".
