Original and unique to Saffron Walden Museum – the puzzle features an image from our British Butterfly Collection. These are very different to standard jigsaw puzzles:
Whimsy Shapes – an Historical Link to Victorian Puzzle Making – Quirky and delightful, they’re a twist to the usual jigsaw as they incorporate whimsy pieces. ‘Whimsies’, which are essentially a puzzle piece crafted into a recognisable shape (in the case of the Museum Puzzle these are 2 x Butterflies and 3 x Flowers), are an historical link to the Victorian puzzle-making past. As the name suggests, the original Victorian puzzle cutters added the individual pieces on a whim and so the term ‘whimsy’ was born.
Irregular Puzzle Pieces – the irregular pieces create a more dynamic and challenging puzzling experience. They have been cut by precision laser to ensure that these intricate puzzle pieces fit together perfectly. The mini jigsaw puzzles (40 pieces) may be small but that doesn’t mean they’re easy. Perfect for adults and children to complete together or alone they’re still challenging.
Elegantly Crafted British Classic – made in the heart of the Wiltshire countryside they represent the very best of British materials and craftsmanship.
Wooden Jigsaw Puzzles – the wood used is derived from sustainable sources, it gives a fabulous tactile feeling.
Shop with a Conscience – every purchase actively contributes to Saffron Walden Museum’s future sustainability and success. What better way to give back at Christmas?
