12 Piece Jigsaw Puzzles
Our 12 piece jigsaw puzzle series consists of eight puzzles which feature images that reflect some of the sub-cultures which exist within African and Caribbean cultures. The puzzles feature a combination of colour images as well as black and white images. This reduces excessive stimuli and in turn helps with concentration. It also accords with research that has found black and white images in jigsaws to be better for older eyes.* The original vintage images were used to make the puzzles. Finished size: 24.13 x 27.94cm
