NPD reports Gibsons as the UK’s No. 1 adult puzzles manufacturer

Published on: 12th December 2018

Gibsons has been the UK’s No.1 performing adult puzzles manufacturer every month this year based on velocity sales.

In addition, Gibsons is also the No.1 jigsaw manufacturer for adults in the UK for value in the month of November 2018, with its sales increasing by 13% (year on year sales, Nov 2018 vs Nov 2017). Finally, The NPD Group’s data shows that Gibsons’ Christmas Limited Edition puzzle, Driving Home For Christmas, is No.1 best-selling adult jigsaw puzzle in the UK, out-selling all other adult jigsaw puzzles and accessories (by rate of sale over the last three months).

Kate Gibson, managing director of Gibsons, commented: “We are blown away by The NPD Groups findings. Our Christmas Limited Edition jigsaw puzzle is always a success, but it being the best-selling jigsaw puzzle nationwide is a huge achievement. This excellent news comes at the perfect time as we are preparing to celebrate 100 years of Gibsons next year, and to be the UK’s No. 1 performing puzzle manufacturer for adults is a great way to start our centenary celebrations.”

Gibsons urges customers both old and new to visit its stands at the Hong Kong Toy Fair (3E A06) London Toy Fair (E40), Spielwarenmesse (Hall 12 A-04-03) and Spring Fair (Hall 5, E30-F31) to toast this achievement and to view some of the products that have contributed to this success.
