What are Whimsies ?
‘Whimsies’, which are essentially a puzzle piece crafted into a recognisable shape such as a flower or bird, are an historical link to the Victorian puzzle-making past. As the name suggests, the original Victorian puzzle cutters added the individual pieces on a whim and so the term ‘whimsy’ was born. Quirky and delightful, they’re a twist to the usual jigsaw and add another challenging dimension to our wooden puzzles. We also have larger whimsy pieces that are featured in our Children’s jigsaw puzzles. They make great educational aids for teaching children motor skills and problem-solving while also making the jigsaw puzzle fun and entertaining.
What makes a Wentworth Wooden Puzzle so unique?
Wentworth jigsaw puzzles are unique for many reasons. It’s not just that they’re made of sustainably resourced wood that makes them so wonderfully tactile to the touch. But also due to the intricate and challenging pieces in our cut designs. There are few standard jigsaw piece shapes in our puzzles. But instead dissected corners, straight edges in the middle of the puzzle and irregular pieces.
Each one of Wentworth thousands of detailed cut designs is individually drawn by hand by their team of expert designers. Every single piece, whether is a whimsy piece or not, is carefully and cleverly thought out. All of the cut designs are completely individual, no two cut codes or even two pieces are the same. It’s the combination of their difficult cuts and stunning images that make Wentworth jigsaw puzzles so dynamic and rewarding.
Wentworth offers also specially shaped jigsaw puzzles that feature cut patterns that follow the shape and contour of the illustration. For example, the jigsaw puzzle Aquatic Fanatic is the shape of a fish.
If you like to be challenged by a really hard jigsaw puzzle, you’ll love Wentworth extra-difficult jigsaw puzzles. With repeated shapes and irregular edges, they’re not for the faint-hearted. The puzzles in the extra difficult range are the only ones that do not have the Wentworth renowned whimsy pieces. Instead, the pieces are repetitive shapes and interlocking patterns. Wentworth extra difficult puzzles are perfect for experienced puzzlers or those who love a real challenge. Plus, you can choose from a range of piece counts.
