Jumbo has also added 11 brand new puzzles to their popular Falcon de luxe puzzle brand, adding to the 24 new releases that they have already brought out this year. New releases include the new Falcon de luxe Seasons in the Village and The Sunflower Garden, Wartime Summer, as well as the Christmas Market and re-release of Graham Thompson’s popular Christmas in Ice.

Meanwhile, having launched its range of children’s Peter Rabbit puzzles in the classic Beatrix Potter style in Easter, Jumbo has added a 500 piece and 1,000 piece puzzle to its range of licensed products for the popular brand.
