Rubik's 360 Arrives in Stores Next Week
Posted on July 7, 2009
Even though it is only July it is almost time for some of the cool toys we heard about earlier this year to start going on sale. The Telegraph reports that the Rubik's 360 - a difficult looking spherical puzzle - will go on sale next week.
David Hedley Jones, senior vice president of the Rubik brand, said: "It doesn't need batteries and looks as though it should be quite easy. "But it is incredibly complicated. There are some really cunning tricks to it." Hamleys, the London toy store, has already had thousands of inquiries for the 360. It's head of sales Nigel Wheatley said: "It is our biggest item on the web. I expect thousands to be sold in days."The retail price for the new cube is expected to be 18 pounds, which is about $29 U.S. You can learn more about the Rubiks's 360 here in an earlier post that also includes an interview with Erno Rubik, the inventor of the Rubik's Cube.
