A tiny but playable Rubik’s Cube has gone on sale in Japan for about $1,900.

According to news agency Associated Press, the cube measures just 9.9 millimeters, or 0.39 inch, by 9.9 millimeters, and weighs 2 grams.

Tokyo-based Bandai Co. said the toy, which was made of “ultra-precision metal,” comes with a box for its display.

The launching of the new tiny cube marked the 40th anniversary of when the original 3-D puzzle went on sale in Japan.

The Hungarian Embassy organized an exhibit in Tokyo to showcase the toy. The event runs through November 9.

Norbert Palanovics, the Hungarian Ambassador to Japan, said the cube embodies the small and simple but smart qualities of his country.

“The Rubik’s Cube is part of our everyday life, here in Japan, too, and inspires everyone,” he said.

In fact, Hungarian architecture professor Erno Rubik invented it in the 1970s.

A U.S. company eventually turned it into a hit product sometime in the 1980s.

More than 100 million purchased their Rubik’s Cubes in the first two years. In Japan alone, more than four million bought theirs in just the first eight months.
