Product Description

Product Description

On a warm afternoon in July, the town is buzzing with activity. It’s the end of the summer term and the local girls’ school is holding its sports day. A number of lucky children have already broken up and are celebrating the beginning of the long summer holidays. Just down the road from the church, skipping, football and hopscotch are the favourites, but over in the recreation ground the swings and slides are as busy as ever. Down by the river, what could be nicer than a cooling paddle or a relaxing picnic with mum and dad?

Product Description

On a warm July day in 1957, the down 'Bournemouth Belle', hauled by 'Merchant Navy' pacific No. 35012 'United States Lines', sweeps round the curve through Brockenhurst Station. In the adjacent sidings, class H15 4-6-0 No. 30476, on a running-in turn from Eastleigh, marshals a freight train before departing for Bournemouth via the Ringwood line. A push and pull train from Bournemouth to Brockenhurst, propelled by M7 0-4-4Tank No. 30029, approaches its destination and the Lymington branch train can just be seen in platform 4. Gibsons 636 piece jigsaw puzzle is the same width as our standard 1,000 piece but not as tall. Gibsons jigsaw puzzles are made from 100% recycled, high quality puzzle board. Puzzle size 685x320mm when complete. Suitable Age 10 Years +.

There are four 500 piece jigsaws in this box so they are very good value for money. The pieces are all sturdy and of good quality.

The colours on the pictures on the Gibson box matched the jigsaw pieces inside which is a bonus as in the past I have had experience of other makes of jigsaws where the colours didnt match and this is very off putting. I have always found Gibson Jigsaws to be of a consistent good quality over the years and would recommend them.

As a hobby I complete many jigsaws and find it useful to scan or photocopy the pictures on the box to help me when completing the different jigsaws.

All four Gibson Time of our Lives jigsaws were well packaged and had a little slip inside to use to send back to them in the unlikely event that a jigsaw piece was missing, which I have never had to use in all the many years I have been completing Gibson jigsaws.

Also included was a useful catologue of their other jigsaws of various sizes which I found useful to look through and find out which other jigsaws they had in the 500 piece range.

I would recommend any Gibson Jigsaws and in particular these four as they are of historical and educational value and give a nastalgic glimpse of childhood games and family life in the not so distant past.

This set of jigsaws have bought back many childhood memories for me and I shall enjoy completing all four jigsaws many times over in the future.

I am an avid Jigsaw-maker and I always buy the annual 4-in-a-box Gibsons set. The Trevor Mitchell scenes are always a joy, bringing back memories of a much gentler age.

Overall the pictures are relatively simple and for a novice (or child moving to larger piece counts for the first time) there are plenty of starting points, so you don't lose interest because you don't seem to be making any progress.

You would normally pay anything from £5-£7 for a single 500-piece jigsaw so the price for a box of 4 is also reasonable.

I have occasionally had pieces missing, but there are instructions who to contact and what to do in this case and I have never experienced any difficulty in obtaining replacements where necessary. Gibsons customer service is always excellent.

All in all, if you like jigsaws, then these would be a good choice for you.

A great jigsaw because it has detail and lots of individual colour. Plus the enjoyment of seeing past memories. Whenever I see Artist Trevor Mitchell named, I know it is going to be an excellent picture. I buy each one as it comes out.

Quite good quality, not as thick as Ravensburger ones, however, I do like Gibsons Puzzles too. As long as the quality and colours are good and a nice picture I just can loose myself in Jigsaws, My collection is growing nicely up the bedroom wall, I so enjoy my Jigsaws, its so relaxing and easy to pick up and drop if your busy and go back to. I did literally have hundreds of Jigsaws however, over the years moving house, kids etc; they have been borrowed out and not returned, so now trying to build up again. Would definately reccommend.

Bought this for my Dad as he does not have room for 1000 piece at the moment, he was very pleased. Good quality puzzles at a very good price will certainly be buying more in this series.
