JAN VAN HAASTEREN Balloon Festival 1000 Piece Jigsaw Puzzle
A humorous 1000 piece jigsaw puzzle Illustrated by the popular Dutch artist Jan van Haasteren and made by Jumbo in the Netherlands.
For Decades Jan van Haasteren has created highly detailed, colourful and, above all, humorous illustrations. Most of Jan’s fans will immediately search for his trademark, the “Shark’s Fin” which is featured in every puzzle, but you can 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.
Through the years there have been numerous Jan van Haasteren 150 to 5000 piece puzzles in the Jumbo Collection.
Craftmanship counts with a Jumbo jigsaw Puzzle … Quality has been an obsession at Jumbo for the last 160 Years. Ever since they began creating puzzles, they have used the most exacting techniques to ensure they produce the finest quality Jigsaw Puzzle.
It is a journey that starts when they first select their images. Not every beautiful picture makes for an entertaining puzzle. That is why they take such care over the choices they make. They ensure they only use the finest quality board, making sure each piece will keep its optimum shape and fit seamlessly together, time after time.
Each piece is carefully cut in such a way that the finished picture will look more like a poster than a puzzle.
At Jumbo, Jigsaw Puzzle making is more than a craft, it is a passion. Something, Jumbo will continue to take pride in for years to come.
