Gibsons details new spring puzzle designs

Published on: 24th April 2019

The fourth generation, family-owned British company celebrates its 100th anniversary this year.

Gibsons is launching seven new jigsaw puzzles for spring, in addition to relaunching its classic strategy game, L’Attaque, in celebration of its centenary in May.

Amongst the new 1,000 piece puzzles is a montage of Vintage Walls Ice Cream imagery. With a rich history stretching back to the early 20th century, Walls is deeply rooted in Gibsons’ local culture and communities.

To commemorate the 75 years that have passed since the D-Day Landings in 1944, Gibsons has re-released artist Bill Perring’s 1,000-piece puzzle from 2004. The scene shows the Allied Forces landing in France with a Spitfire in the foreground, two Typhoons to the right, and landing craft approaching the beach in the background.

Gibsons will also be releasing Curious Kittens, which depicts a new dolls house that has peaked the interest of some cute felines, All Aboard to Keswick, a steam train puzzle painted by Stephen Warnes, and Caravan Escapes, a nostalgic scene that brings back memories of caravan holidays in the great British countryside.

There are two new 500-piece puzzles amongst the new designs. Greg Giordano has designed In the Garden, which shows an overgrown garden filled with everything from butterflies to blue tits. Glenny’s Garden Shop is a floral design awash with colour, painted by the talented Steve Read. Available in a 500XL piece count, this puzzle will get fans in the mood for spring. The pieces of this puzzle are double the size of those in a 1,000-piece puzzle, making it ideal for beginners or those with visual or motor-skill impairments.

As with all Gibsons jigsaws, the pieces are made from the highest quality 100% recycled board.
