Wentworth Wooden Jigsaw Puzzles

Wentworth wooden jigsaw puzzles are dedicated to
those of you who enjoy the wonderfully relaxing,
stress-reducing pleasures of wooden jigsaw puzzles.
All Wentworth wooden jigsaw puzzles are
craftsman-made to an exceptionally high quality with
all pieces fitting perfectly. They are also quite
difficult to complete. We call it the 'tease
factor'. The pleasure is enhanced by the famous
whimsies (also known as silhouette pieces), pieces
so-called because, in Victorian times, the cutters
cut them on a whim.
The whimsies are
generally related to the subject of the image, e.g.
a wooden jigsaw puzzle of your favorite pet would
feature animal whimsies, a wooden jigsaw puzzle of
your garden would feature plants, tools, even a
gardener leaning on a spade and so on. There are up
to 15 whimsies per puzzle.
It's no surprise,
therefore, that Wentworth puzzles seem to be
achieving a unique, cult-like status throughout the
world; rather unusual for jigsaws, don't you think?
Wentworth wooden jigsaw puzzles are even becoming
collectors items, changing hands for significantly
higher prices than the original purchase prices.
These puzzles are so totally absorbing, they are
the perfect antidote to the stresses and strains of
every day living.
All Wentworth puzzles are
cut from a wooden composite called Medite™. This is
an FSC (Forest Stewardship Certified) registered
product and will provide enduring pleasure to
generations of enthusiasts.
