2020 has been a mad year… but we welcomed lots of new brands to the store!
You may have noticed this year (I’m not sure where you’ve been if you haven’t noticed!) but jigsaw puzzles have been INCREDIBLY popular in 2020.
Whether it’s the fact that everyone has been locked at home for months, the square eyes we’re all trying our best to avoid, or the need for peace and quiet from the noise of the world; jigsaw puzzles have been the go-to for thousands of people this year.
To combat this huge increase in demand that we’ve been lucky enough to be at the heart of, we’ve grown our in-house All Jigsaw Puzzle range as well as bringing on SEVEN new brands over the course of 2020!
So, without further introduction, here are the new jigsaw puzzle brands we’ve added this year:

Otter House jigsaws are designed with both puzzlers and the planet in mind. They are currently the most eco-conscious range we have in store with paper bags for their puzzle pieces, reduced plastic and a company-wide aim to be carbon neutral by July 2021!
