With the last 2 years of lockdown, jigsaws became a big thing in our home, so much so, we have become ‘jigsaw addicts’. We have even brought a jigsaw case to do the jigsaws on which you can fold up, store away or even take away with you, which is what we do when we go away.
I find jigsaws in general are very relaxing and therapeutic and this jigsaw in particular got me looking and viewing it in a completely different way. I have never seen a jigsaw with an abstract design to it and this is what made viewing the jigsaw differently. The contemporary design and illustration is phenomenal, to find out more about the company’s design and Marilena who came up with it, just click on this link; https://jigsawavenue.co/pages/about-me
Upon opening the puzzle box, I found a fantastic and amazing life size colour poster which shows the picture on the lid of the puzzle box. This poster is so much better to use a reference as opposed to the picture on the front of the box. The box is smaller as are the details, so the life size one is great, especially if you are like me and need to wear glasses.
The pieces to the puzzle have been very well made with a gorgeous matt finish along with strong and vibrant colours. They are made exceptionally well as they are strong, sturdy, very thick and fantastic quality, they are not too small either.
The cut of the pieces are unique and are anti-glare (the poster is also anti-glare), making it so much easier to do the puzzle. What I love about the pieces, is the fact that they are made from recycled cardboard. This is a great reflection on the company as it reflects how much thought, time, effort, design and more they have put in to making this amazing jigsaw puzzle.
Whilst I was putting the jigsaw together with my husband, we smiled and laughed as it reminded us of our very washed out trip to New York lol. Brought back some great and fun memories.
What is great about this particular jigsaw box is how you can store it. When it is not being used, you can place it upon a book shelf as the edge of the box says ‘Jigsaw Avenue’ and make it look like a book. What a great conversation piece when anyone comes into your home and sees it. Brilliant idea!
This would also make a great gift. I enjoyed doing this puzzle, and I highly recommend this design – you will not come across any design like this.

The company state that it is ‘Not Suitable For Children’; although personally I am not quite sure as my 15 year old grandson came over during the time we were putting it together and loved joining in.
PRICE AND WHERE TO BUY
At the time of typing my review, I found this to be an amazing price of just £21.99 with FREE shipping in the United Kingdom. The price most certainly reflects the quality and workmanship unlike others out there that are cheap, nasty, bend and break.

Absolutely love it. Kept me busy for days and would most certainly make a great gift for any occasion.
We all love social media and what with most of us on it now-a-days, I was really pleased to see Jigsaw Avenue has taken to a couple of social media platforms. I have provided the links to all their pages, apps and websites. Would also be great to see them on Twitter and Pinterest. They really are worth talking about and feel they need to get on as many social media platforms as they can.
