The Hello Kitty Rubik’s Cube from Megahouse costs 5500 JPY ($35.20) after tax. You can purchase it from Megahouse’s website. However, it does not seem to offer international shipping.

Each block of the Rubik’s Cube features a different design. With this cube, you can see the different looks for Hello Kitty between 1974 and 2024. When you take out the cube from the box, it’ll be in chronological order. The Rubik’s Cube logo in the very middle will have a bow on it. Because it is impossible to actually solve this puzzle (as mentioned earlier, each square on the cube is different), it’s more a display you can personalize.

Both Hello Kitty and the Rubik’s Cube were created in 1974. Due to this anniversary, Sanrio has been releasing a lot of Hello Kitty collaboration merchandise, such as special jewelry and snack flavors. As for the Rubik’s Cube, Erno Rubik (a Hungarian sculptor and architecture professor) designed it in 1974 as a 3D combination puzzle. It has since become a famous pop culture icon, appearing in media and as art pieces. There are records as well for how fast people can solve it.

The Hello Kitty Rubik’s Cube will come out in late October 2024.
