Gibsons 1000 Piece Jigsaw Puzzle - Newcastle
This 1000 piece puzzle shows families enjoying a day out at a classic car show taking place beneath the famous Tyne Bridge. The Tyne Bridge is a through arch bridge over the River Tyne in North East England, linking Newcastle upon Tyne and Gateshead. At the time of its construction, the Tyne Bridge was the world's longest single span bridge and was officially opened on 10 October 1928 by King George V.
As with all Gibsons jigsaws, they use 100% recycled puzzle board, FSC paper and work with the best artists from all around the world. The beautifully illustrated pieces are designed to fit perfectly together; in fact, we use the thickest puzzle board on the market. Everyone loves a Gibsons jigsaw, even Her Majesty the Queen has been spotted with one.
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. Not only does the box have a fresh new look, but they’ve used biodegradable clear labels to secure the lid instead of shrink wrap, reducing our 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, they need less room to transport their products which reduces carbon footprint and means you can store your puzzles more easily. Gibsons have also popped an artwork poster inside for you to reference whilst you piece together your lovely jigsaw puzzle.
