Warm up for the head or Rubik's Cube

Today I want to share with you a purchase that was made furrowing the expanses of aliexpress.
The review will be devoted to an excellent puzzle toy - the Rubik's Cube or as it is popularly called the Rubik's Cube. In the review, in addition to the review of the cube itself, assembly options will be considered.
All interested are invited to read.
Some facts about the Rubik's Cube
The Rubik’s Cube is a mechanical puzzle invented in 1974 (and patented in 1975) by the Hungarian sculptor and architecture teacher Ernö Rubik.
The puzzle is a plastic cube.(form factor in the original version 3? 3? 3). Its visible elements on the outside look like 54 faces of small cubes that make up one large cube, and are able to rotate around the 3 internal axes of the cube. Each face consists of nine squares and is painted in one of six colors, in one of the most common color options arranged in pairs opposite each other: red - orange, white - yellow, blue - green; but in different versions of the Rubik's cube, the faces are painted in different colors in a completely different way. Rotating faces allows you to reorder colored squares in many different ways. The player’s task is to “collect the Rubik's Cube”: turning the faces of the cube, return it to its original state, when each of the faces consists of squares of the same color.
The Rubik's Cube is believed to be a leader among toys.according to the total number of sales: around the world, about 350 million Rubik's cubes were sold, both original and various analogues. An interesting fact: if they are put in a row, they will stretch almost from the pole to the pole of the Earth.
Well, what do we have: The cube came in a well-packed one, wrapped in a “little bubble”, but the corners of the packaging still suffered, apparently it was already packed like that.

Packing Photos



In addition to packing, the cube was packed in a plastic bag, the cube came assembled, but I could not resist and twisted it, so there is no beautiful photo of the assembled cube.

What was my surprise when the assembly instructions appeared at the bottom of the box, but unfortunately only in Chinese.



The dimensions of the cube are 5.7cm * 5.7cm * 5.7cm, made of plastic that is pleasant to the touch, color elements are made qualitatively and made of the same plastic from which the cube is made.


All sections are disassembled, apparently this is done for convenient disassembly of the cube and cleaning




Cube Weight 102 grams
