From its beginning in 1919 as a UK producer of games, Gibsons Puzzles has been guided by a driving principle of "Bringing People Together". The company expanded into various product categories, but eventually began producing jigsaw puzzles after recognizing the special appeal of puzzling as a way to bring people together, especially in the home. Today, Gibsons Puzzles enjoys a reputation for exceptional quality that spans the globe. Their puzzles are cut from two different thicknesses of cardboard, depending on piece count. Their 1,000-piece puzzles are made from the thickest puzzle board on the market (very noticeable to the touch), while their 500-piece puzzles are cut from a somewhat thinner material. We choose to focus primarily on the thicker 1,000-piece designs, but stock a few of their 500-piece multi-pack puzzles (two to four puzzles in a single box) due to their popularity and value for the dollar. Gibsons' designs encompass a creative mix of old-time nostalgia, contemporary art, and delightful cartoon puzzles. All are entertaining and some are down right funny. We are very pleased to welcome Gibsons Puzzles to our store and we sincerely hope you enjoy this marvelous brand as much as we do.
