description

Jigsaw enthusiasts are usually thought of in the same context as trainspotters, macramé buffs and avid viewers of Time Team. But perhaps that's because most of us associate jigsaw puzzles with naff images of cutesy kittens, fantasy vistas, dull tourist attractions and twee thatched cottages from an era that never was.

The point being, it's invariably the subject of the jigsaw that lets it down, not the puzzle itself. For this very reason, your genre-reinventing friends here at Firebox are proud to unveil what we believe to be the next generation of jigsaws.

Postcode Puzzles are unique, 255 or 400 piece map jigsaws centred on a place of YOUR choice. Simply give us the full postcode of the property you'd like at the centre of your puzzle - be it your own humble abode or a friend or relative's pad - and leave the rest to us.

All pieces are crafted in high-quality 1.5mm millboard - meaning they'll fit together beautifully like, well, like a jigsaw. The centre piece is even in the shape of a house. What's more, each complete 255 piece puzzle measures a coffee table friendly 35.6cm x 27.1cm (400 piece 47.2cm x 31.2cm) so you won't have to clear away the furniture for floor - based assembly.

Postcode Puzzles are guaranteed to give you a whole new grasp of your local surroundings and provide you with hours of maptastic entertainment. Just remember, we know where you live. Sort of.

Fantastic! It's kept the parents busy all day long :-).
Katrina, London - 26th December 2013
I love this! It's just arrived and just from looking at the odd bits inside the bag and the photo I know it will be fantastic! The quality is amazing. I was worried because the address I wanted it of was a little obscure, but I needn't have worried. Will certainly order again.
Kayleigh, Bolton - 3rd December 2013
Brilliant!!! I was a bit unsure if it would arrive in time but exceeded expectations on that front as well. It comes in a lovely box and I went for the Landranger design. I chose a postcode in the town where my mum grew up and as she loves jigsaws this looks set to be a nice nostalgic timewaster :D It looks in great quality and am very pleased I made the purchase.
Sheila Smith, Dundee - 12th December 2012
I bought three Victorian and one Aerial map as gifts. I was a bit concerned as the packaging didn't look like something that had cost anything like the price, also as it seemed a bit of a whacky idea. However, all three couples really enjoyed theirs, two said they were the best pressie they received. The other was my Dad who can be quite grumpy but he was so proud of his he took it to show his mates in the pub. My brother is framing his for the wall! The Victorian ones were of very small villages and one especially was all fields. Very difficult but they obviously enjoyed it enormously.
Jo Wise, Cambridgeshire - 20th January 2011
I LOVED THIS! and so did my Dad as it was his present - I just gave my review but read some of the others below and was shocked that people weren't as entusiastic. My looked great, the ariel pic was really good resolution we can clearly see our house and garden and it looks great centred in the puzzle. I don't understand what inst fab about it?! :( I'm sad people didn't love theirs like we do.... A jigsaw isn't just for Christmas its for life!
Vicki, Wakefield - 5th January 2011
Bought this for my Darling Daddy for Christmas 2010. He absolutely loved it!!! It has a cute middle piece shaped like a house where your house is...I loved that touch! He's the type that has everything, likes and wants nothing. This was perfect. He did the ariel one and and now is thinking of getting another. I think he might even have them framed when he's finished playing with them! Fab pressie & I highly recommend. Plus Firebox is a great site, with the best customer service team I have ever dealt with!
