This morning, our Managing Director, Brian O’Donnell was on the BBC Breakfast sofa! He was talking about jigsaw puzzles with Robert Opie who has has just launched an exhibition celebrating 250 years of jigsaw puzzles at the Museum of Brands.
This wonderful event is believed to be the world’s biggest collection of jigsaw puzzles. The first jigsaws date all the way back to 1766 and were used to teach geography to upper class children. Read more about the exhibition here.

Brian was asked along to talk about jigsaw puzzles today. He mentioned that today you can get a map jigsaw centred on your home, which he thought was a nice nod to the origin of puzzles.
