This week a TPL Kids website visitor might have been trying to solve a conundrum that has caused much consternation and wondered, who made the Rubik’s cube?

 

According to the Rubik’s official website, Erno Rubik created the first working prototype of the cube in 1974. However, it was not until 1981 when the Rubik’s cube became a worldwide sensation.

 

So the next time you find yourself trying to solve a Rubik’s cube, don’t feel bad if you are unable to solve it. It’s not an easy thing to solve.
