Inquiry correspondence about the maze product's name
The following is an inquiry that was sent to Hasbro:
Could you please tell me WHAT IS THE NAME OF THIS MILTON BRADLEY PRODUCT??
I enjoyed this 3-dimensional, transparent maze back around the 1960's, when I was a child. A marble was inserted into a hole marked "start". The object was to get this marble through this four-inch cube from the "start" hole to another hole, marked "out", located on the opposite face.
More recently, I have located such a puzzle through one of my relatives. The wife of one of my cousins saved this maze from her youth, but the box in which it came somehow got lost. She recalls that it had red, white and blue colors.
Many years ago, I saw this box, containing perhaps words like "you can", but I do not fully remember.
In addition to the exact name of this product, some historical information (e.g., when and where it was made) would be a plus.
I have attached a JPEG of the puzzle. Thank you for your consideration.

Thank you for contacting Hasbro, inc. regarding your old Milton Bradley product.
The name of the product you are referring to is called Try-It Maze and was first introduced in 1959-1960 and was discontinued in 1973.
Unfortunately, we do not have any other information on this product. Milton Bradley was located in Springfield, Massachusetts at the time this product was introduced, so it is possible that it was manufactured there.
We appreciate your interest.

I saw your web site about the Try-It game and thought you may like to have these photos. I recently bought a "try-it" on ebay in a box. Here are the graphics from the box. Perhaps you would be so kind to pass these graphics on to Kelly Landoch who made the inquiry in the first place.
