Buckingham Palace- Lifting the Lid
1000 Piece Jigsaw Puzzle

€17,95
Description

At first we see the regular shape of Buckingham Palace, but upon closer inspection we see that two separate events are taking place within. The front of the palace is being opened up as if it were a life sized doll’s house to reveal all the working and goings on in the Royal household. There is a Spring clean in full swing.

There is also a knighthood ceremony attended by the great and the good. The Queen can be seen concentrating as she wields her ceremonial sword - go easy on them ears your Highness!

But take a closer look and you will see a calamitous event is occurring before our very eyes. A large room, that for over sixty five years has housed all sorts of gifts given to the Queen, has been opened, setting free a whole range of animals and exotic birds. Corgis scurry through the rooms knocking over maids and butlers, parrots squawk and doves coo as they make their escape. A right royal commotion!

The Household Cavalry dressed in their best uniforms are seen trying to establish order, unfortunately despite being trained to re-assemble a tank blindfolded, they have no experience catching pygmy hippos and are making a bit of a hash of it!
Look even closer and you may see the actual royal throne and little prince George as he rides his bike through the chaos.

As with all Gibsons jigsaws, we 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.  

We’ve made some positive changes to our 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 we’ve used biodegradable clear labels to secure the lid instead of shrink wrap, reducing our plastic waste. We 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 our previous designs, we need less room to transport our products which reduces our carbon footprint and means you can store your puzzles more easily. We have also popped an artwork poster inside for you to reference whilst you piece together your lovely jigsaw puzzle
