Product Description

Product Description

As the variety and range of brands grew during the 1980s – which included the fun taste of Fiendish Feet – the growing needs for keeping trim became more evident. Less noticeable was the new requirement for a barcode on every pack. Now arriving on the breakfast table were Crunchy Nut, Fruit ‘n Fibre, Farmhouse Bran and Brancrunch. Your milk could have been poured from a new dumpy shape bottle with an advert on its side. And for those on-the-move moments, Jordans created the concept of a cereal bar. Amongst this ‘naughty but nice’ era of the Eighties was the counter balance of F-plan Brancrisp, Shape milk, Lean Cuisine meals and a range of crispbreads. Other notable launches included Chicken Tonight, Covent Garden Soups and environmentally friendly Ecover, but some brands were short lived, like Noodle Doodles, Quattro and Wizard yogurt mousse. Gibsons produce Britain's favourite puzzles on premium quality board. A British, family company, we offer the widest selection of puzzles in the UK across a variety of themes and piece counts.

'Twas the night before New Year's Day
When all through the house.....
All were drinking and generally being merry!
And as The Bells rang out and the countdown began.......
Suddenly a shriek was heard.........

"Just one more piece.....before 2014"!
Yay - completed - my brand new jigsaw! (So where has the last year gone?)

Seriously, this is a good quality jigsaw and with all those packets, tins and bottles of various substances orderly lined up you would be mistaken in thinking that this was a dawdle!
It certainly had its moments but was a fantastic New Year's Eve talking point with everyone reminiscing of days gone by as Auld Lang Syne faded out and Duran Duran took over, in the background!

'Wizard Yoghurt Mousse', anybody?

ooOoo

'Memories of the 1980s' - '1980s SHOPPING BASKET' - GIBSONS - G7034
1000 high quality piece JIGSAW

The finished product measures roughly 68.5 cm x 49 cm, and fits comfortably on my PortaPuzzle.
The pieces come safely wrapped and in a high quality box measuring around 41.5 cm x 29.75 cm, the reverse of which has some snippets of what was going on at this time - history, I guess you could call it 'though, to me, it seems like yesterday in some respects.

There is also a note re 'The Robert Opie Series', which inspired this jigsaw.....and, oh my(!).....there are others to collect, namely:

1950s SHOPPING BASKET
1960s SHOPPING BASKET
1970s SHOPPING BASKET

Please don't tempt me - back to the reality on Monday!

Pieces are very good quality, took me two days to complete the majority of it...still a few bits to do. Much more interesting than putting something with lots of sky, sea or greenery together.

I liked this puzzle very much. It's as expected from Gibsons, with thick pieces that are different enough between them that it doesn't cause you to place them mistakenly.

I have only one complaint: the box obscures the top left part of the picture, so it's a bit trickier to complete that part of the puzzle. For the most part, colours match the image, but not alway.

It's a bit harder to complete than others I've done in the past, but this was a welcome challenge.

All in all, I recommend this product, especially for those who remember 80's products.
