The Pyraminx was invented in the early 1970s by Uwe Meffert. When it was invented it was simply an interest, but worldwide success of the Rubiks Cube brought the Pyraminx into production and as of today more than 90 million copies have been sold, making it the second most popular puzzle in the world.

The Pyraminx can be rotated around any of its vertices by multiples of 120. This makes it hard enough to be a real challenge, but easy enough to master, without help, in a few days. It has precision injection molded parts and spring-loaded bearings which make operation easy and exact.

The idea of the puzzle is to scramble the colors and then return them to the initial state of four single-colored sides. There are still only 75 Million possible positions of the Pyraminx. It is theoretically possible to solve the Pyraminx from any of those positions in 12 moves or less, but in actuality, it should take about 20 moves once you have mastered it.
