Since 1997, Alphabet Jigsaws has been creating original handcrafted wooden jigsaw puzzles for kids of all ages. We have an extensive range of wooden jigsaw puzzles that includes some wonderful Alphabet, Number and Map Jigsaws as well as our newest ranges of Irish Language and Science and Nature Jigsaws. We also have a range of Wooden Animal fridge Magnets.
Designed in Ireland, all of our jigsaw puzzles are cut from sustainably sourced wood and painted by hand in dazzling colours, using non-toxic acrylic paints, like small works of art! Our wooden jigsaw puzzles are designed to encourage dexterity and logic and although educational, the emphasis has always been on making the puzzles fun.
For over 20 years, we were based in Westport, County Mayo but we recently moved to Wicklow, swapping the Wild West for the Garden of Ireland where we continue to create and design our amazing range of products.
The puzzles are produced, by hand, in a rural part of Sri Lanka amidst rice paddies and tea plantations. We have been working with the same family for over twenty five years and have forged an incredibly close relationship with them, based on trust and the mutual desire to produce an exciting range of beautiful and unique jigsaw puzzles.
The factory was inspected and certified under the Ethical Trade Initiative in 2007 and the jigsaws puzzles are manufactured, by hand, in a fair and regulated environment.
We sell our wooden jigsaw puzzles throughout the UK and Ireland (and beyond!) to a wide clientele and an appreciative audience of little people. We sell to a variety of craft and gift shops, museums and galleries, while also supplying schools, creches and libraries, amongst others. We occasionally attend exhibitions and shows where we sell directly to the public (see our events calendar for details).
Our sister company, Ozzy Puzzles in Australia sell a range of our products as well as some unique Australian puzzles of their own. You can find them in Fremantle Markets near Perth or by clicking here. Only for customers in NZ and Oz.
Our range of wooden jigsaw puzzles has evolved over the years but our concept remains the same; to create durable wooden jigsaw puzzles that are enjoyable and educational. Puzzles that will captivate and educate small children while making the process of learning fun.
