Subject: Little keychain cubes

Does anyone know how I could get more of those little 25-cm 3x3x3 cubes that

25-Cm!?!  Damn son, you must have a helluva lot of keys!     ;-)

used to be sold on a keychain for about US $3.00? I checked a few toy and
novelty stores in my area, ...

Right, I know the one's you mean (I've got a two or three of them around
here somewhere) but I haven't seen any of these for sale for years. If I
remember right I picked mine up at a convience store check-out line. (Hard
as heck to turn.)

... including Games People Play near MIT in Cambridge
(and they weren't very nice about giving me a useful answer either)...

Yeah, aren't they a pain to deal with?

Barring that, has anyone successfully made their own cubes? Since the 3x3x3
is relatively simple in design I suppose the tolerances wouldn't be all that

I'd like to get a bunch of small cubes so I can keep a bunch of cubes in
different configurations.

Probably a dumb idea, but if they're going to stay fixed, couldn't you just
paint some up?
