It is late afternoon in Robin Hood's Bay, which means it's time to head back home and change for tea. The fishermen may be done for the day, but this doesn't stop the little ones from catching crabs in the shallow waters.
Robin Hood's Bay is a small fishing village in North Yorkshire, whose name derives from the English legend of Robin Hood. After encountering French pirates, who came to pillage the fisherman's boats and the northeast coast, Robin Hood forced the pirates to surrender and returned the loot to the poor people of Robin Hood's Bay Village.
Terry Harrison is one of the most popular artists in the Gibsons range and is renowned for his beautiful harbour scene paintings.
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.
