Toys From The 1970s In the 70s, the Rubiks Cube ( The Rubiks Cube was originally designed by a Hungarian Mathematician as an aid for teach maths concepts to his students ) hit big with a complicated, confusing formula that both confused and captivated children and adults alike. Along with the development of diverse, all ages friendly toys like the Rubiks cube was the skateboard. Released in 1975, the skateboard was a simple toy developed almost as a novelty that only took a short while to boom into the sport that we all recognize today. Can you rember this?
