Alphabet Jigsaws, an Irish company based in county Wicklow, designs beautifully handcrafted wooden jigsaw puzzles which are cut from sustainably sourced wood and painted by hand using non-toxic acrylic paints.
This Ireland Icons Jigsaw Puzzle is one of the most intricate and detailed puzzles ever produced by Alphabet Jigsaws and a wonderful introduction to the rich natural and cultural heritage of Ireland.
Each Individual hand painted piece represents either an Irish Landmark, Icon or Animal and each one can be stood up separately. In this way, pieces can be discussed, researched or simply played with before being re-assembled into a challenging Ireland shaped Jigsaw puzzle.
