Hall: Hall 5 Stand: 5F10-G11

Founded in 1919, Gibsons have been entertaining generations for almost a century and are proud of their rich, British heritage. Gibsons' focus is on providing fun family pastimes for all ages which is achieved by using only the highest quality materials for their superb jigsaw puzzles and board games.

Made in the UK and Europe, Gibsons puzzles are made using the thickest board on the market. They work with a whole host of talented artists to bring customers breath-taking designs, from nostalgic scenes to mesmerising prints. What's more, their jigsaw puzzles are planet-friendly. They're made from 100% recycled board and secured with tabs rather than shrink-wrap to reduce single-use plastic waste.
 

221b Baker Street, Pass the Bomb and Civilization are just some of the captivating games Gibsons manufacture, as well as best-selling jigsaw puzzles that have been designed by talented artists from around the world, including Ana Hard, Mike Jupp, Linda Jane Smith and Steve Crisp. Gibsons' 1000 piece jigsaw puzzles are 2.3mm deep, making them the thickest jigsaw puzzle pieces available on the UK market.

From traditional 1000 piece puzzles and game classics, to family favourites such as Mind the Gap and Quirk!, Gibsons produce a variety of entertaining products that can be enjoyed by all!

  • Sustainability Role in overall company's strategic plans
    Sustainability is an integral part of our strategic plan and we ensure it is built into every department of the business. As part of its Green Game Plan, more than 75% of our products have gone through a process to improve our environmental impact. This includes removing plastic shrink-wrap, making boxes smaller and using recycled materials and vegetable inks. We have made many changes at the Gibsons Head Office too, including installing solar panels, switching plastic bottles of milk to glass ones, encouraging the team to walk to work rather than driving, and recycling 75% of our office waste thanks to working with Successful Sutton.
    Sustainability initiatives
    Part of our ‘Perfect Puzzle Product’ which we began in 2020, was to reduce single use plastic and we have made fantastic progress in the last 12 months: The Little Gibsons jigsaw puzzles and games no longer come with plastic wrap or a plastic bag. Two new card games, Quirk and Card Game For Rebel Girls were released in 2020 and both are made in the UK and are plastic free. Our traditional puzzle boxes were given a brand new look last year and are now smaller (a whole 29% smaller on average) and no longer wrapped in cellophane. This saves 521,096m of plastic per year (the same as the length of 4300 football pitches!), and the smaller boxes mean require less room to transport the products, which reduces our carbon footprint. A vegetable-based ink is used to print the puzzle box and artwork and the puzzle pieces are made from 100% recycled board. The puzzles in this range are manufactured in the UK and Europe, again reducing carbon emissions when transporting them to our warehouse. There is still a long way to go, but we are pleased with our progress.
    Sustainable Products
    Planet Friendly Puzzles
    The iconic Gibsons puzzle was redesigned in 2020: • Jigsaw puzzles made from 100% recycled puzzle board and FSC paper. • The jigsaws now come in a planet friendly box to help reduce plastic waste - puzzle box lids are secured with sturdy biodegradable clear tabs, so there’s no shrink-wrap. • Vegetable-based inks are used on the puzzle pieces and the box lid illustrations. • Box size has been reduced by over 25%, so no excess cardboard, which positively impacts storage and transport – and therefore helps reduce Gibsons’ overall carbon footprint. • The puzzles are manufactured in the UK and Europe.
    Quirk! The Card Game
    Quirk! is the hilariously funny family card game that was released in July 2020. Players must perform impressions of the characters featured on the cards in order to collect as many ‘Quirks’ as possible. The card game was designed and manufactured in the UK and is completely plastic free. The box is secured with sturdy biodegradable clear tabs, to ensure there is absolutely no plastic waste.
