Erno’s Cube

I have an orig­i­nal Ru­bik’s Cube, a deluxe edi­tion from 1980, in “as new” con­di­tion and with orig­i­nal pack­ag­ing. Is it valu­able? Michael Saun­ders, Cardiff Well, you won’t ex­actly be din­ing out on the pro­ceeds here, but at €40-€50 for un­opened and sealed orig­i­nals you can at least af­ford a take­away. Hun­gar­ian Erno Ru­bik in­vented the multi-coloured cube in 1974 but it didn’t take off un­til it launched at in­ter­na­tional toy fairs some years later. It won the 1980 Toy of the Year Award and more than 100 mil­lion Ru­bik’s Cubes were sold from 1980-1982 alone.
