Celebrate National Jigsaw Day by Winning a Puzzle From Wentworth Wooden Puzzles

If you haven’t heard that we have a National Jigsaw Day, then were have you been? A Wiltshire based jigsaw company, Wentworth Wooden Puzzles, founded the day. They want more and more people to get involved and celebrate the benefits of getting lost in a puzzle. If more of us can ditch our gadgets every now and again, then the benefits can be brilliant for us.

To celebrate National Jigsaw Day this year, Wentworth have created a 40 piece puzzle. I have been lucky to have been sent one to try it out. Plus, one of you will have the chance to win one (plus an extra puzzle).

I am always so impressed by the jigsaw puzzles from Wentworth. I think they are great quality; really sturdy pieces. They aren’t flimsy or thin, so you know they will last a while. It also means they are suitable for my puzzle obsessed son to handle, and not worry that they will get damaged too easily.

I think the design on the puzzle is great too. The ‘raining cats and dogs’ theme is really fun. As it is quite busy, it makes it more taxing too (I’m not going to admit to how long this took me) haha! Wentworth have a unique feature with all of their puzzles too. They have what they call ‘whimsy’ pieces thrown in. It makes the puzzle more fun, as well as a little more taxing.

As you can see here, this puzzle in particular has some cut out letters, as well as a dog and cut piece. My son really likes this feature too. All in all, I am honestly impressed by the quality of the puzzles from Wentworth, as well as the design of them. They cost a little more than a regular puzzle, but you can see why. My son has lots of puzzles with cardboard pieces and they just fall apart really easily. I would recommend this for children and puzzle-loving adults alike!

If you would like to get involved and win this unique National Jigsaw Day puzzle, as well as a an extra 50 piece puzzle, then all you need to do is to enter via the Rafflecopter form below.

    Another thing for being maxed level is when you try to participate in player vs.

    Most importantly, we always ensure the clients are given written confirmation that they own the
    domain name, we are merely managing it on their behalf.
    This stunt is not new, but it’s always fun and surprising for each new group that tries it.

    The thing I like about puzzles is how you can just cut-off from a jumble of thoughts and concentrate on finding that next piece to fit, sorting pieces into edges and middle bits, finding colours and shapes to match up etc – a good way to just unwind and focus on something enjoyable. I like puzzles with lots of different colours to keep them interesting and recently got one of those roll up mats so that I can store when needed – now I’m after a bigger mat for the 100-piece+ puzzles, lol! Fingers crossed.

  61. 10th November 2016 / 10:43 pm

    We’ve added optional hidden zones, optional quests that unlock new spells and items which enable new combinations in combat, and
    even monsters you might never encounter depending on the choices you make.
    It doesn’t matter what do you wish to know – where is the
    finest location to seek, which seek reward shall superiorly go with
    your character, only ask. After getting Thundurus and
    Tornadus, bring both of them to the Abundant Shrine on Route 14,
    and Landorus will attack.

    With big name released over the next handful of months such
    as Star Wars the Old Republic and Guild Wars
    2, I wouldn’t be surprised if World of Warcraft will be a back burner game for most gamers.

    Meanwhile, another foe of the pokemons, the Team Galactic
    will step in, with an aim of conquering the Pokemon universe.

    One of the greatest things about the new generation of internet-connected handheld gaming consoles
    like the Nintendo DS is the fact that gamers no longer have to
    be in the same room to trade, play, and battle with one another.
