Description

During the swinging sixties a new era of sophistication was heralded with After Eight thin mints and then Matchmakers chocolate sticks in Orange, Mint and Coffee flavours. There was a growing appetite for Peppermint with Chocolate including the new Roundtrees Cracknel. Other brands on the sweet counter included Jelly Tots, Tooty Fruities, Toffee Crisp, Skippy, Aztec, Galaxy Counters, Treats and Marathon (which became Snickers in 1989). 

Years ago Robert Opie began to record the history of brands and products that surround us in daily life. His collection can now be viewed at The Museum of Brands, Packaging and Advertising in London

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.

We’ve partnered with TR[1]BE to save the rainforest. With each order placed on our website, we will protect 5 trees and 100 sq.m of rainforest from destruction.

About the artist

Starting at the age of sixteen with a packet of Munchies, Robert Opie saw the need to record the history of everyday products around us and built up the collection that now extends to all aspects of daily life - toys, magazines, technology, travel, souvenirs, fashion and design. His collection can now be viewed at The Museum of Brands, Packaging and Advertising. Set out in chronological order in the form of a “Time Tunnel” the museum gives visitors ‘a trip down memory lane’ and a chance to see how the brands around us have evolved from the naïve charm of Victorian times to the greater sophistication of today. It also reflects the change in shopping habits, the impact of transportation, media, the effects of two world wars and the gradual emancipation of women.
