Gibsons The Brands That Built Britain Jigsaw Puzzle (500 XL Pieces)
The Brands That Built Britain is a 500 extra large piece jigsaw puzzle by Robert Opie from Gibsons Games.
Take a trip down memory lane as you piece together the vintage packaging of brands such as OXO cubes, Kelloggs, Marmite and McVities.
For the past 50 years, Robert Opie has been finding the pieces that make up the giant jigsaw of British social history. He started recording the history of everyday products at the age of sixteen. He built up a collection, starting with a packet of Munchies, 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 in Notting Hill, London, where the displays give visitors 'a trip down memory lane' and a chance to see how many brands around us have evolved from the naive charm of Victorian times to the greater sophistication of today.
The puzzle pieces in the 500XL extra large range are twice the size of a standard Gibsons 1,000 piece puzzle and are ideal for people with handling or sight difficulties. Once completed, the jigsaw is the same size as a standard 1000 piece.
Completed puzzle size: 48 x 68cm
As with all Gibsons jigsaw puzzles, the carefully illustrated pieces are made from the highest quality 100% recycled board and are therefore a pleasure to work with again and again.
