Approximately fifteen years ago, the games company first made its move into the jigsaw puzzle market.
Over the years, the company has focused mainly on traditional painted scenes and has grown the brand through concentrating on quality of artwork and breadth of range.
The firm now offers over 200 titles for adults, as well as a growing children’s offering.
Jigsaws over the years have included those from Thomas Kinkade and The National Trust, as well as the I Love puzzles, the nostalgic Memories of range and the Christmas Limited Edition series. Gibsons have an ever-growing selection of jigsaws from many artists, often appearing in the distinctive Gibsons blue box.
This year the firm has won Good Toy Guide and Right Start awards for the new My World children’s puzzles. These jigsaws are eco friendly and have been developed in conjunction with child psychologist, Dr Amanda Gummer. Gibsons is currently working on new titles for launch next year.
Also being launched in 2010 are National Gallery puzzles, and a new range from the Memories of stable, as well as many other new titles to be announced next year.
Michael Gibson, who shortly takes up the role of chairman of the firm said: “We work extremely hard to maintain the quality of our puzzles and to satisfy our jigsaw puzzle audience. We make sure we listen to their views to ensure our range continues to develop and evolve.”
