Gibsons - Spirit of the 60s - 1000 Piece Jigsaw Puzzle

by Gibsons

Spirit of the 60s - 1000 Pieces

With good reason, this decade became known as the Swinging Sixties. For hip teens and twenties, it was with it to hang out at the discotheques, where the latest dance craze was the Twist, brought over from the USA in 1961 by Chubby Checker. Boutiques flourished with the latest fashions Gear Guide provided a Whos Who of Carnaby Street and Kings Road, Chelsea. The look was of Twiggy or Jean Shrimpton, the trendy hair of Vidal Sassoon, and wolf whistles for the revealing mini skirt. But the spark that set this youth revolution alight was the new beat of pop music. The Beatles and the Rolling Stones, and many more with vibrant LP sleeves, created an art all of their own. It was a television series that propelled the Monkees to stardom and onto the packets of sweet cigarettes.

Television created much of the energy of the decade and the memories. The mid Sixties brought with it Ready Steady Go, with Cathy McGowan, while Top of the Pops spread the latest upbeat sounds. Radio Luxembourg and the pirate radio stations of Radio Caroline and Radio London increased the volume, especially on the widely used transistor radios. After the pirate stations were banned, Radio 1 became the pop music channel from 1967. With the addition of BBC 2 in 1964 (and colour by the end of the 60s), television was full of excitement Z Cars, Dr Kildare, Crackerjack, the Avengers and the Morecambe & Wise show, and all had their annuals.

Increasingly, economic flights to continental destinations encouraged the package holiday maker who came back with a taste for different cuisines even if it only came from a Vesta pack. The 1960s also saw the arrival of Ski real fruit yogurt, Lego bricks, Barbie and Sindy dolls, the Mini, the E-Type Jaguar, Coronation Street, James Bond films and Dr Who fighting the Daleks. The sporting achievement was England winning the World Cup in 1966; the technological achievement was man landing on the moon in 1969.

This 500 piece jigsaw is packaged in a smart, compact box the perfect gift for an avid puzzler!

As with all Gibsons jigsaws, they use 100% recycled puzzle board, FSC paper and commission the best artists from all around the world. The beautifully illustrated pieces are designed to fit perfectly together, in fact, they use the thickest puzzle board on the market.

Gibson's have made some positive changes to their processes, so you can be sure youre getting the same great puzzles and know they are kinder to the environment. Not only does the box have a fresh new look, but they have used recyclable clear labels to secure the lid instead of shrink wrap, reducing plastic waste. They use vegetable-based inks too. The gloss coating on the box gives extra protection and the puzzle pieces are stored in a plastic bag that can be recycled by most councils.

Because the box is slightly smaller than previous designs, less room is needed to transport the puzzles, which reduces the carbon footprint and means you can store your puzzles more easily. There is also an artwork poster inside for you to reference whilst you piece together your lovely jigsaw puzzle.

With over 250 Gibsons jigsaws available here, at Jigsaw Puzzles Direct, there is plenty to choose from. From the large piece puzzles to the most popular 1000 piece puzzles there is a jigsaw for everyone. The gift box range of 500 piece puzzles offers the perfect present.
