Born in Scotland in 1999 Our Story

About Us

We are thrilled to welcome The House of Puzzles to the Bigjigs Toys family, and can’t wait to introduce you to our new range of enchantingly illustrated puzzles. This beloved brand has long been celebrated for its exceptional quality and artist
curated designs and, now, is entering an exciting new chapter with Bigjigs Toys at the helm.

In 1999, The House of Puzzles emerged onto the scene with a modest collection of just 12 jigsaws. However, over time, the hard work, grit, and determination of owners Grant, Audray, and Ivor, saw the brand rocket to new heights and its treasured range of 600+ jigsaws become a family favourite in homes across the globe. In 2024, after many successful years, the trio decided it was time for a change and passed the torch into the open arms of Bigjigs Toys, a family-run toy company with 40 years of experience in puzzle craftsmanship. It was the perfect fit.

At Bigjigs Toys, we are fuelled by a passion to craft products that ignite, inspire, and engage minds of all ages, and The House of Puzzles shares these values, so we are incredibly proud to welcome the brand on board.

Puzzles were the very first product we created, and they’ve been at the heart of what we do since 1985. Back then, our founders Liz and Peter Ireland lovingly cut, painted, and packed a small range of wooden puzzles (made out of old floorboards!) in their garden shed. Fast forward to today and our huge collection of puzzles and playthings can be found in 100+ countries worldwide.

As part of the Bigjigs Toys family, The House of Puzzles’ timeless designs, rich artistry, and extraordinary standards will be entwined with a Bigjigs touch of playfulness and innovation. In this catalogue, you’ll find an exquisite collection of puzzles that cater to all interests, ages, and skill levels, including the bestselling BIG 250, BIG 500, and KidzJigz ranges. Discover everything from vintage seascapes and spectacular steam trains to farmyard frolics and festive fun! Every one of these jigsaws has been intricately designed with captivating landscapes and nostalgic scenes to ensure a relaxing and rewarding puzzle-solving experience.

From everyone at Bigjigs Toys, we invite you to explore this catalogue and unlock the magic of The House of Puzzles piece by piece.
