There is also another version named "IQ Puzzle", seen in images 11-13. It apparently was produced primary for the dutch market. The alternative version (image 19) also uses this name.

In 2017 a mass produced version out of plastic hit the market, in black and yellow plastic. Please refer to images 14-18.

There exists another version (search for "Wooden Egg" in the museum) with a middle layer that is two marbles thick. Whether that version is made by Clever Toys is so far unknown.
