While they may be small, these bees are certainly mighty. In this puzzle Spring has sprung and the bees are buzzing, but it might surprise you to learn that not all bees are the same. In fact, there are more than 250 bee species in the UK, from big fluffy bumblebees to the much smaller Honeybee.
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 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, reducing our plastic waste. We use vegetable-based inks too. The gloss coating on the box gives 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.

About the Artist
Born and bred in Kent, Fiona loved painting as a kid and used to paint her versions of the Disney Characters. She always wanted to do something with art and went to the Kent Institute of Art & Design to see what the possibilities were. She was inspired by the works of David Shepherd and Norman Rockwell for their detail and diversely different styles.
Fiona usually works in watercolour but can also do pencil or acrylics, depending on what is required. Her style is realistic, but not photo realistic; “I just like it to look as it’s meant to be.” Her work includes natural history, botanical, people and scenes. Outside of the artistic field, although not too far removed, she loves pottery and makes and sells her own pieces and enjoys photography as well as cycling but is “not too good at that and invariably end up in a ditch.’
