New Year Special Offer

The New Year is the perfect time to grab a bargain! Selected 1000 piece new jigsaws are now just £10! We also have great offers on new 636 piece and multi-box puzzles. We think there’s something for everyone in this selection, whether you like gardening, animals, toys, shopping, bingo, world travel, motorbikes, railways, caravanning or sailing!

636 piece panoramic puzzles are the same width as a 1000 piece jigsaw when complete but half the height, meaning less stretching. They are perfect for most coffee tables.

500 piece puzzles are a good choice if you have more limited space or would like an easier jigsaw. These multi-boxes offer great savings. If you’re choosing a gift, why not add a Puzzle Sorter too?


Contact us for orders and enquiries or call Delia on 07802 203617 or 01829 458259 to talk through our range. May we also take this opportunity to wish all our customers a very happy 2022.

The school summer holidays are here – you’ll find lots of ideas on our website, whether you are going away for the first time in a while or staying local. We’ve just added some Ravensburger titles to our range of jigsaws for younger puzzlers – see below.
