I love doing jigsaw puzzles but haven’t done one in a few years. So when I was asked if I would like to review the Buckingham Palace Jigsaw from Gibsons of course I said yes. The Jigsaw was when the Queen and The Duke of Edinburgh were leaving the palace for the Trooping of the Colour on the day of the Queen’s official birthday. The puzzle is painted by Steve Crisp and has lot’s of great details. I especially love the two women with the UK flag painted on their faces.

The puzzle contains 1000 pieces and came in a plastic bag inside the sturdy box.

I did the puzzle over a number of days while watching my soaps on the telly. I really enjoyed doing it and found it very relaxing. I tried to get the kids involved too, but they found this one a bit too hard.

I really can’t wait to get another puzzle, really missed doing this.

  1. I haven’t done a jigsaw puzzle in years. They are super fun though. I like that this wasn’t a huge amount of pieces but still challenging.
