These are strip cut puzzles with interesting piece shapes.
Crown and Andrews was founded by Gerry Crown and Vic Andrews (Crown and Andrews) and began in the unlikely arena of demonstrating kitchen gadgets! The business first began making products for the children’s market when it invented the “Sketch-A-Graph” which is still available today.
Crown and Andrews have been bringing games and jigsaws into the household for more than 50 years and are now Australia’s leading manufacturer of these. They specialize in sourcing, creating and distributing their own range of unique games and “the world’s most beautiful puzzles”.
The staff are just as “colourful” as their jigsaw puzzles! Audrey New (Sales and Marketing Director) and Gerry Crown (Managing Director) were both inducted into the “Australian Toy Industry Hall of Fame”. Gerry also won the prestigious “Peking to Paris” automobile race in 2010 driving his prized “EH Holden”.
If all that were not enough, it was Crown and Andrews who started “National Kid’s Day”!
Jigthings are extremely pleased to be associated with the company – they do a great job of distributing our Jigsort product in Australia.
