The Rubik's Cube is the world's best-selling toy. It's very simple, but if you want to solve this magic toy, you need good concentration, foresight, intelligence and patience.
The toy was made in 1974 by Hungarian Erno Rubik, an architect and professor Erno Rubik. Then he realizes that this is a small toy that will help him increase his concentration, patience and intelligence.
It took Erno Rubik himself months to solve the cube, which used different colors on six sides made of wood. He patented the artifact in 1974.
Many toy manufacturers have been approached to make this cube an industrial product, but many have ignored the toy. However, it took 5 years for the toy to become known to the outside world. During these 5 years he has been selling Magic Cube in his own country. However, it was not until 1979, when Erno Rubik introduced the Magic Cube at an international toy exhibition, that the product became known outside of Hungary.
