Wasgij 20th Anniversary – 20 Years of Perplexing Puzzling!

Wasgij 20th Anniversary

Wasgij 20th Anniversary

It’s 20 years since Jumbo launched the first Wasgij and they are celebrating this momentous milestone with the relaunch of the first three Wasgij’s under the Retro banner.

These Special Edition Anniversary jigsaws are essential additions to your Wasgij collection. The three 1,000 piece puzzles are the very first Wasgij Original 1: Sunday Drivers!, Destiny 1: The Best Days of our Lives! and the Mystery 1: The Wasgij Express!

What is a Wasgij?

For the uninitiated, here are the Wasgij basics. Wasgij is jigsaw spelt backwards and is pronounced “Woz-gidge”. The Wasgij concept revolutionised the jigsaw industry – they were the first where the image you completed was not the one on the box. They give an extra fun challenge to jigsaw puzzling and, consequently, these fun cartoon images have become firm favourites with jigsaw enthusiasts all over the world.

There are six concepts in the Wasgij range, following the common theme that the jigsaw inside is different from the image on the box.

Original – you need to put yourself in the position of a particular character in the picture. Imagine what they are looking at – that is the image you must piece together.

Destiny – the ‘Time Travelling’ concept where you must use your imagination to piece together what you think the scene and characters shown on the box will look like in the modern day.

Mystery – with this one you have to use your imagination and piece together what will happen within the next few minutes to the characters shown in the box image.

Christmas – a festive version of the Original concept.

Imagine…? – piece together what you think the scene and the characters shown on the box will look like if imagination turned into reality.

Back to…? – the most recent concept to join the Wasgij range and a reverse version of Destiny. Piece together what the scene would have looked like in years gone by.

Bestselling jigsaws?

Jumbo reckon they have sold over 3 million Wasgij jigsaws – laid end to end they would stretch around the world at least twice!

Who creates these masterpieces?

Graham ThoGraham Thomson - Wasgij's Original Artistmpson is the original Wasgij artist who has been creating these hilarious images for 20 years. He is responsible for over 50 Wasgij puzzles (there are over 90 in total)! Four other artist have since joined to help Graham out – James Alexander, Bill Houston, Neil Easton and Calvin Innes.

Final interesting Wasgij fact!

The famous Granny figure has appeared in more Wasgij’s than any other character. She’s appeared 23 times!

Happy Birthday Jan van Haasteren

The Jigsaw Puzzler’s Favourite Octogenarian – Jan van Haasteren

Jan van Haasteren in his studio

Jan van Haasteren has been creating amazing jigsaw puzzles for Jumbo for many decades. They are all highly detailed, very colourful and above all humorous. There are always masses of hidden amusing images waiting for us to discover. 

He celebrated his 80th birthday last year, so many happy returns to the jigsaw puzzler’s favourite octogenarian.

To celebrate this wonderful landmark, Jan created a special 80th birthday jigsaw puzzle. Jan’s fans will immediately search for his trademark – the shark’s fin – featured in every puzzle. This is usually extremely well hidden and hard to find so a brilliant challenge. Make sure you also look for other favourite images – Saint Nicholas, The Hands, The Dentures and Jan’s self-portrait which you will find in nearly all of his illustrations. He uses all types of social events as inspiration for his images. These jigsaws are very enjoyable to complete as you never know what you are going to see next!

What is Next for Jan?

Jan says he has always got loads of ideas for new designs, sketching crazy things that pop up in his mind every day. Firstly, he works out the idea in a detailed pencil drawing and then develops his ideas in ink. It is quite a long process to get all the detail in, hence each picture takes about three months to complete.

He has promised to continue to create his wonderful masterpieces for Jumbo so we can look forward to many more Jan van Haasteren jigsaw puzzles to come.

Jan lives together with his wife Romi in Bergen in Holland. He doesn’t do jigsaw puzzles himself but he sometimes helps his wife if she is struggling to find a piece.

Ambler Cartoon Collection Jigsaw Puzzles

Ambler Cartoon Collection Jigsaw Puzzles by Michael Durkan has become one of the more popular ranges on the All Jigsaw Puzzles shop. These are exclusive to All Jigsaw puzzles so you can’t get these ones anywhere else!

Michael includes the same characters in each design – Legs, Scream, Mole, Platinum blonde girl, Girl with newspaper and Eyes. Michael told us a little bit about each character

“The theory behind Eyes is they possibly are not from this planet.   Legs always appears to have taken something and is running away.  Scream is just trying to get on with life.  Mole just pops up as moles do!  Platinum blonde girl always looks aloof while men look on and finally Girl with Newspaper is always reading the news headlines.”
