Image Description: This retro Rubik's cube was invented in 1974 by a Hungarian professor of architecture, Erno Rubik, and is an iconic toy for children of all ages. This 3D combination puzzle, also known as the magic cube, is usually found at the bottom of the toy box, long ago given up on. There is always a way to get all those sides to go back to their proper colors – and we don't mean by picking off and re-sticking all those colorful square stickers! Many people compete to see how fast they can twist and roll each row around to get it back to its original organized self; since 2003, there has been official record keeping of the world records associated with the Rubik's cube by the World Cube Association. The Rubik's cube had been sold a whopping 350 million times as of January 2009, making it the world's best selling toy!
