Jumbo Games #NationalPuzzleDay Review and Giveaways!! (sponsored article)

Jumbo Games are a brand I've worked with several times in the past and they are the experts at jigsaw puzzles. They have a huge range including puzzles for people of all ages and abilities, including their fabulously popular Wasgij Puzzles, which offer a whole new level of puzzling...


I was sent a big bundle of puzzles to take a look at, including some of the Wasgij Puzzles. If you like puzzles and have never heard of Wasgij then you will be in for a treat. These are unlike any other jigsaw puzzles in that you aren't given the solution, you need to work it out yourself.


On the box are images and characters which portray a story or scenario and you have to use logic and imagination to work out how to complete the puzzle. These have humorous and modern cartoon illustrations and offer a real challenge. I'll be giving away 3 bundles of puzzles including some Wasgij and I'm testing a mini 54 piece puzzle this morning myself...


The puzzle pieces are excellent quality recycled card which is cut out really cleanly to slot together perfectly. The colours are bright and the illustrations are really intriguing. Completing the puzzle feels like an achievement not only because you've done the puzzle, but because you find out what happened...


Even the 54 piece puzzle poses a challenge and I love the fact that you don't know how the story is going to end! It feels almost like reading a comic strip story.


The 1000 piece puzzles are available in several different ranges. The Original Wasgij Puzzles have a 'What are they looking at?' concept. The Destiny Wasgij Puzzles have a 'Future time travelling' concept and the Mystery Wasgij Puzzzles are 'What happens next?'. There are other ranges available too, including Retro, Back To and Imagine, each with their own unique storylines and outcomes.


In our bundle we were also sent some puzzles for the younger members of the family. Jumbo Games have lots of sets with puzzles of various sizes, so that your child can move on to something more tricky as soon as they've mastered the easiest puzzles.


Jumbo Games gave me 3 bundles of 3 puzzles to give away to my readers and followers. I gave away 2 bundles on Twitter, but I have an extra chance for you to win a bundle of 3 puzzles below...


Wasgij Puzzles cost around £12- £20 for the 54 piece mini puzzles and the 1000 piece puzzles are around £10-£20 each. Available now from all good toy and game stockists, including online at Amazon (aff*). There is even a dedicated Jumbo Games Amazon store where you can find out more. 



Entry to the Puzzle Bundle sweepstake is by Gleam form below and the winner will be chosen at random from all entries. No entry is mandatory, but each extra task completed earns more entries into the draw. The winner will receive two of the latest 1000 piece Wasgij Puzzles Original 31 and Destiny 19, as well as the excellent Fireman Sam 9 in 1 Puzzle Pack.


Entry will close at midnight Sunday 17th February and the sweepstake is open to UK entrants only. If you are new to Gleam, or to enter my other UK giveaways, please see my giveaways page...

  18. Last weekend my half sink was blocked - water wouldn't go down. Underneath the sink it was leaking from the pipe. If I unscrewed it, it would all clear. But when I tightened it up to stop the leak, the sink then stayed blocked. I had to have one or the other. Totally puzzled me - went on for 2 days. Decided to shine a torch down the sink and stick a wooden skewer down and kept moving it about. Suddenly it all went okay - still puzzled
