I thoroughly enjoyed completing this jigsaw. The art work is superb with lovely colours and the patterning makes it much easier to do than you would think at first glance . The colours also make it quite easy to do if the light levels are a little low. The puzzle is made to a high standard with sturdy pieces that interlock well. I am now going to make sure that I have the rest of the series.

Good for novelty value, lovely bright colours, but not as much fun or satisfying to do as a traditional flat jigsaw. Clever construction; I realised when it was done that it's basically a geodesic dome!

Having just attended a wedding I was intrigued by the thought of a personalised jigsaw as a momento of the day. I created a collage of several pictures using Picasa ( seriously this isnt the difficult!) and had a 1,000 piece jigsaw created. The quality of this product is exactly that of a good qualtiy jigsaw, right down to a thumbnail of the picture on the side of the box- in fact the packaging was sublime. A short wait for delivery as the product is manufactured abroad - but well worth the wait - just plan ahead. And the tears in my friends eyes when she saw the finished product were worth every penny ( and more)

--Richard Scott (on behalf of his wife)
I came across your site and was amazed by the number and variety of jigsaws on offer and the prices they were too. There is something on this site for everyone and I am making my Christmas list as we speak!
The order process was really easy and I was pleased to see that I could expect delivery of my purchase within two working days. True to their promise my board arrived as stated. "Fantastic" I thought and now I no longer need to take up the dining table or keep picking up stray pieces off the floor because someone walked passed and knocked them off!.
Thank you- you are a lifesaver!

It doesn't matter if you are just getting into puzzling or are a season puzzler we have something for you. Currently we have over 1650 designs in stock (sitting on the shelves right now). When you order we'll try and send your jigsaws the same day or at least within one working day.
Jigsaw puzzles were first invented by John Spilsbury in London around 1760. They haven't changed much over the years except from changing from mainly wood to card.
Nowadays a lot of manufactures use recycled card and the pieces are laser cut for precise fitting of pieces together.
Puzzles have long been a popular UK pastime and help with relaxation and concentration. Companies like Gibson Games, Jumbo and Ravensburger have taken things further by including specialist ranges to help certain groups of people.
There are now a range of 'large piece' jigsaws designed especially for those people who can no longer manage the smaller pieces. They are great for people recovering from strokes, helping to improve the hand to eye movement again.
Children's jigsaws are also a massive area now. Many include specific educational elements in them from helping counting and word recognition. Others help children learn parts of the body, geography etc... but the popular kids designs are always the various Disney scenes!
The most popular and by far the best selling range of jigsaws in the UK is 'Wasgij' - simply jigsaw spelt backwards. It's a patented concept by Jumbo games where you have to put yourself in the jigsaw itself and pretend to look out. The picture on the box is simply a clue. You have to imagine you are one of the people in the scene and the picture on the jigsaw is what they are looking at as they look out. If you haven't tried one you should - and discover why that range is easily the best selling brand and why you now get Wasgij collectors.
If you have any questions on any of the jigsaw puzzles you see on our site please get in contact. We are here to help.
