Win A Disney’s Frozen Jigsaw Puzzle for National Puzzle Day

National Puzzle Day Frozen Disney

Amy has been really getting into jigsaw puzzles recently. We bought her a couple of them for Christmas and my Nan sent her a wonderful farm puzzle with 36 pieces as well. Initially, I thought she was still a little young for them, but once again, my little girl has proved me wrong. She has taking to puzzles like a fish to water and happily does a 36 piece jigsaw puzzle by herself. Admittedly, she goes by trial and error, but with some encouragement, Amy sits there until the end when she shouts ‘Yay, I’m a winner’. It’s lovely to see her celebrate her own little success and while we are talking about celebrations, I want to wish you all a ‘Happy National Puzzle Day’!

Designed in 1760 by British engraver and map maker John Spilsbury, the puzzle is now three hundred years old and has since enchanted, educated and entertained children and adults alike.  Could we need any more reasons to celebrate with a special National Puzzle Day giveaway? I don’t think so!

If you want to win a jigsaw puzzle of Disney’s latest movie hit ‘Frozen’, kindly donated by Jumbo Games, fill in the Rafflecopter below and make sure to fulfil all mandatory entry requirements before moving onto the extra points. Good luck, everyone!

  1. Ahhh, I used to love jigsaw puzzles. I was very lucky as I had an uncle who was very well travelled and he brought home amazing wooden jigsaws. My favourite was a big wooden chunky giraffe one. Thanks for the question, that’s brought back lovely memories!

  4. I always remember my grandma having loads of puzzles in her cupboard under her stairs and the one I remember the most was a map of the UK jigsaw puzzle. It only had 100 pieces but to a young child, the pieces were never ending! It was the first big jigsaw I completed (with the help of my grandma and older brother), so I remember it well! Whenever we went to stay over at grandmas, to allow our parents a night out, we loved getting out her jigsaw puzzles. Ahhhh lovely memories!

  6. I can’t remember! My only childhood memory of puzzles is that my Granny always had one on her dining table that she was working on, with such tiny pieces. I would have competitions with my brother and sister to see who could get one of the pieces in the right place.

  38. I can always remember the jigsaw puzzle my mother was completing, which we all helped with, it was huge, 5000 or 10000 pieces and it had some poppies on it. It was nearly complete, then my brother, quite young at the time knocked one of the legs on the table and it all came down, crumbling to pieces in the process. – I remember we did eventually complete it though.
