Gibsons 1000 Piece Jigsaw Puzzle - Express to Blackpool
All aboard the Express to Blackpool! The passengers have packed their buckets and spades and are ready to board the train to the seaside. This painting by Stephen Warnes captures the excitement of travelling by steam train for a summer holiday adventure.
As with all Gibsons jigsaws, they use 100% recycled puzzle board and work with the best artists from all around the world. The beautifully illustrated pieces are designed to fit perfectly together; in fact, Gibsons use the thickest puzzle board of any manufacturer.
Gibsons have made some positive changes to their processes, so you can be sure you’re getting the same great puzzles and know they are kinder to the environment. They use biodegradable clear labels to secure the lid instead of shrink wrap, reducing plastic waste. Gibsons use vegetable-based inks too. The gloss coating on the box gives extra protection and the puzzle pieces are stored in a plastic bag that can be recycled by most councils.
Because the box is slightly smaller than previous designs, less room is needed to transport Gibsons products which reduces their carbon footprint and means you can store your puzzles more easily. They have also popped an artwork poster inside for you to reference whilst you piece together your lovely jigsaw puzzle.
