To me jigsaws and Christmas go together, just the idea of one makes me think of the afternoon after you have finished stuffing your tum and the Queens Speech has been watched it’s time to sit, relax and have some good old together time be it playing games, watching TV or just sitting down and trying to put together a jigsaw.
Wentworth Wooden puzzles have been producing puzzles since 1994, and offer jigsaws that range from 30 pieces to 1,500 meaning they cater for both beginners and more experienced puzzlers. They are one of only a handful of brands that still produce whimsy piece jigsaws, which offer like in the picture above pieces of specially shaped pieces cut into the puzzle. Each puzzle is beautifully crafted with them being distributed to 35 countries around the world from their factory on the edge of the Cotswold’s.
I was sent the beautiful Puzzle that Made Christmas to have a look at – available in 40 pieces for £5.95 or 280 pieces for £29.95 it is made up of whimsy pieces in the shape of snowmen and Santa which piece together around a plethora of different shapes and is edged by an uneven wave helping just add to that level of difficulty. It is a follow on from last year’s offering of The Puzzle that Ruined Christmas which saw people puzzling over not just the jigsaw but also putting together the mini Christmas trees that made it up.
The one thing that kept being so obvious to me from the moment I received the Puzzle the Made Christmas was the work that had been put into it – this really isn’t your everyday puzzle from a beautifully presented box, to the cotton bag the pieces are kept safe in and you cannot help but paw over every piece that has been laser cut perfectly into wood.
I have to admit I am yet to finish the Puzzle that Made Christmas but I am determined to have it done by Christmas and can’t wait to show it off to other in my family who love a good puzzle as I am sure they will be impressed. Wentworth really make puzzles that are an enjoyment to both put together and look at – made with materials I’m sure will last for years and be able to be used over and over.
If you want to get your hands on a Puzzle that Made Christmas for yourself – then make sure you pop over to the website and grab yourself one before it’s too late – or for one of you lucky people I have one to give away!
