    Default Rubik's cube introduction to the UK public.....surprising !

    Watching a programme on TV couple of weeks back....and suddenly completely out of the blue Jonathan King (pop impresario) is introduced along with a Rubik's Cube.....he goes on to explain it as a new toy he found in America......who would have thought that one of the world's top selling toys would have been introduced to the British public on TOTP !!! - September 1980

    (It has 43 Quintillion permutations by the way - 10 to the power of 18)

    I knew it was around 1980 - I don't think that the UK had seen a cube prior to that year.
    Telling it almost exactly like it was so many years later - and proud of doing so!
