1000 Piece Jigsaw Puzzle
- Unit Price
When Abbey adopted Ralph the tabby cat, she expected help with her Antique Shop’s rodent problem. What she didn’t realise was the pre-loved cushions in the shop window make the perfect place for an afternoon nap, especially when the sun is streaming through the windowpane! Artist Steve Read has the incredible ability to capture our favourite pets in the most humorous manner! His unique style and comical scenes make his puzzles a firm Gibsons’ favourite.
As with all Gibsons jigsaws, we use 100% recycled puzzle board, FSC paper and work with the best artists from all around the world. The beautifully illustrated pieces are designed to fit perfectly together; in fact, we use the thickest puzzle board on the market. Everyone loves a Gibsons jigsaw, even Her Majesty the Queen has been spotted with one.
We’ve made some positive changes to our processes, so you can be sure you’re getting the same great puzzles and know that they are kinder to the environment. Not only does the box have a fresh new look, but we’ve used biodegradable clear labels to secure the lid instead of shrink wrap to reduce our plastic waste.
There is a gloss coating on the box for extra protection and the puzzle pieces are stored in a plastic bag that can be recycled by most councils. Because the box is slightly smaller than our previous designs, we need less room to transport our products which reduces our carbon footprint and means you can store your puzzles more easily. We have also popped an artwork poster inside for you to reference whilst you piece together your lovely jigsaw puzzle.
