Extra-large piece jigsaw puzzles from Gibsons- ideal for people with sight or handling difficulties
Extra Large Piece Jigsaw Puzzles provide therapy and enjoyment
By: Amanda Murphy
Gibsons have been contacted by a number of parents, carers and Occupational Therapists who are finding that extra large piece puzzles encourage learning and rehabilitation, as well as much needed relaxation and enjoyment. They can be extremely useful in promoting thinking, planning and concentration.
Gibsons are pleased to be supporting rehabilitation as well as providing enjoyment from their much loved jigsaws. Director of Marketing, Kate Armitage commented, ‘We are delighted that our puzzles are making a difference to people. We understand that there are different requirements for people with handling difficulties and we plan to continue to bring out new jigsaw puzzles to satisfy this market.’
Extra large piece puzzles can also encourage adults and children to play together. Child Psychologist Dr Amanda Gummer, commented ‘The pieces in traditional adult puzzles can be too small for older children who have outgrown typical ‘children’
The puzzles contain 500 pieces, but the pieces are twice the size of an ordinary puzzle which makes handling much easier. When complete, these puzzles are the same size as a standard 1000 piece puzzle.
New jigsaw puzzles for 2011 include Cat nap, Botanical Boffins, Apple Picking and The Big Top. To view all of Gibsons range visit www.gibsonsgames.co.uk
