I have always loved jigsaw puzzles, I can clearly remember lots of wooden jigsaw puzzles of nursery rhymes. The obsession has stayed with me and I’m now sharing my love of puzzles with Monkey. I only need to look at my Mum to know where the interest springs from – she is a total puzzle addict. I think half the container when they emigrated, was full of puzzles!! So today, thanks to Jumbo Games, I have a Wasgij Giveaway for National Puzzle Day.
According to a survey commissioned by Jumbo, the manufacturer of Wasgij the No. 1 adult jigsaw puzzle range*, the top most unusual places to complete a puzzle include the
garage, the bedroom, the attic, outside and even the shed!
The study of over 1,000 adults also showed that 71% of puzzlers with children enjoy a puzzle with their kids and 31% puzzle weekly.
I must confess to being rather boring on that score – I use our large dining table for jigsaws when I get some spare time. I used to have a fold out board, I think that got lost when I got divorced – note to self: really need to buy a new one!
So today it National Puzzle Day – celebrating 300 years of puzzling. Did you realise they were that old? The jigsaw was the brain wave of a British engraver and map maker who designed one first in 1760.
To celebrate National Puzzle Day Jumbo Games are offering a 25% discount

Wasgij Destiny 14: How Times Have Changed! is a Time Travelling puzzle concept which requires imagination. Clues need to be solved to forecast how the scene will look in the future; fashions will have changed so hairstyles and hem lines will differ to the guide image shown on the box.
