A few weeks ago, I wrote up some suggestions for puzzle brands to complement your favorites. As we know, we all have our favorites. Happily, with all my research, I am finding new favorites.

When I don’t love a brand, I try to be neutral anyway, because every brand has its own strengths and weaknesses. And who knows? You might like something different than I would.

But sometimes, there is a brand that I just love so much that I need to talk about it:

Gibsons Premium 

Gibsons Premium Puzzles

I had never heard of this brand until a few months ago. You might remember my post about the incredibly challenging Avocado Park puzzle

That was my first Gibsons. Since then, I have completed another Gibsons and I have 2 others in my pile at home and about 5 aside for me.

Gibson puzzles are a UK brand that have been in business for over 100 years. They believe in giving back to the community and sharing some of their profits with a variety of causes as well as looking at cultural diversity and environmental impact. They make puzzles and games for adults and children.

Gibsons Completed Puzzle

These puzzles come in a nice sized box that do not take up too much space. The pieces are thick with almost waxy feel to them. The pieces are grid cut and have a nice clean feel to them when you hold them in your hand. I just love holding them. There is no glare on the pieces as they are more a matte finish, such as Ravensburger. You will like this brand if you like Ravensburger. There was little puzzle dust, and the box includes a poster!

They use a variety of artists such as Steve Crisp and Val Goldfinch with images of the seaside, the village, and assorted shops. These images have a very calming feel to them and remind me of peaceful times when we can be outside in our neighborhood. There are a variety of piece counts and image styles, so I believe there is something for everyone.

There are only a few places that carry Gibson and luckily, there are a lot of choices at Jigsaw Jungle. Please give these a try. I cannot recommend them enough.
