Cube Puzzle Key Rings

Description
This puzzle, which was made in Taiwan, is a small version of a Rubik’s Cube that is attached by a short chain to a key ring. The edges of this puzzle are about half the length of those of a standard size Rubik’s Cube.
This puzzle is accompanied by its original cardboard box, which looks like a Rubik’s Cube. It was made in Taiwan in the early 1980s and is among Rubik’s Cube related items from the Cube Museum, which operated in Grand Junction, Colorado, from 1988 to 1991.
