Wooden jigsaw puzzles became very popular during the Victorian era and were known for their intricately-cut designs and unusual ‘whimsy’ pieces.  (‘Whimsies’ are pieces cut into a recognisable shape – for example, a tree, a flower or a bird – and are often designed to reflect the theme of the image).

Wentworth wooden jigsaw puzzles are carrying on this tradition of British puzzle-making using the latest technology to make the puzzle pieces even more intricate – and the puzzle even more challenging!

Each puzzle piece is laser-cut to ensure a perfect fit, and the latest printing technology ensures that the image is crisp and the colours vibrant.

Once you have experienced the quality and feel of a wooden jigsaw puzzle, ordinary card puzzles are never quite the same!

All of our Wentworth wooden jigsaw puzzles come with a drawstring cloth bag for the pieces and a high-quality presentation box.
