This Carnival puzzle was in a tin, and on that tin is the shark fin with a '2' on it. So there are two other puzzles that belong to the 'Limited Edition' series. For the complete overview all 3 puzzles of the Limited Editions in tin:

What else stands out?
The box says 'Special certificate included, signed by Jan'. However, very often it happens that this certificate is not included in the tin. Even if you buy the puzzle new in the store.

What does the special certificate look like?

It is a beautiful certificate signed by Jan van Haasteren with JOH (more explanation about JOH) and it has a nice red Jumbo stamp on it and looks like this:

Laying this puzzle

Beforehand: it is a puzzle that makes you very happy, real Carnival! A lot of people dressed up and a lot of special cars that were made. In my general review video you will find all kinds of fun jokes and elements that Jan van Haasteren has incorporated into this puzzle.

To put this puzzle together, I have the Qualico puzzle mat used up to 1500 pieces (rubber – neoprene). As you can see, not all pieces fit on the puzzle mat. I have the straight side pieces sorted out. Always start to lay with the edges:

And yes, being able to lay all the edge pieces at once, that doesn't happen very often. You see the look with it:

Also with this puzzle I started with the most striking colors and in this case those were the pink colors of the building at the top left. And as you can see the yellow-orange striped puzzle pieces also collected and put together:

One stroke further it made the striking yellow plane; I have postponed the crowds during this Carnival for a while, I always find that difficult:

Nevertheless, the farmers who lead the way next to the tractor will go next. The music band:

And made quite a splash with the people at the Carnival. It was actually quite an easy puzzle. You can also see that in the time I spent on it. Rarely laid a 1000 Piece Jan van Haasteren so quickly:

And finally the puzzle - always a nice moment:

Jan van Haasteren 'Carnival' 1000 pieces - Recurring elements

The nice thing about this puzzle is that after puzzling there is still a kind of search puzzle. You are looking for the fixed recurring elements of Jan van Haasteren. Can you find them all, or are they just not there?? The crab, the teeth, the shark fin, the Tax Official, the arrows, the hands, the eyes, etc etc. There are many in this puzzle, and I have made videos and photos of them below. Try looking for them yourself before viewing them below.

How long will it take you to complete this 1000 piece puzzle?

I made the puzzle 'Carnival' in peace and took several days to complete it. Beautiful on a puzzle mat made on the floor in the living room. I do take the time, but not very precisely, it remains a hobby that puzzles! But to give you an idea of ​​how long it took me to complete this 1000 piece JvH puzzle:

  • Explaining the pieces: 20 minutes
  • Laying the edges = 20 minutes
  • Laying the rest of the pieces = 5 hours
  • So it took me a total of 5 hours and 40 minutes to complete this puzzle. That is a lot faster than it takes me on average over a JvH jigsaw puzzle, namely about 8 hours. Perhaps this is the fastest time I have achieved for a Jan van Haasteren puzzle

About Jumbo puzzles

Jumbo_Logo
Jumbo (not to be confused with our supermarket Jumbo!) makes toys, games and puzzles. Jumbo, for example, has made the very well-known games such as “Human don't get annoyed” and “Stratego” and “PimPamPet”. Games that have been around for generations and are still widely played by both young and old. Jumbo has been making and developing toys since about 1900. In the early years of the company, only toys from other countries were imported to the Netherlands. However, since about 1930 it was decided to also make their own toys, at the time manufacturing wooden toys, which was very popular at the time. Almost all toys in those years were made of wood. An important spearhead was that the toys made by Jumbo had to be of very good quality; it had to be as strong as an Elephant. An elephant had to stand on it! The red elephant has been the hallmark of Jumbo's games and puzzles for years. The name Jumbo and the red elephant together form the logo from about 1935. The Jumbo elephant is drawn by Mr. Möhr. He worked at an advertising agency and regularly signed for Hausemann & Hötte. Mr Möhr was at one point commissioned to design a beautiful new elephant logo for the Hausemann & Hötte toys. The logo has changed a bit since then. For example, the eye has grown over the years and has dropped slightly more, resulting in a friendlier elephant.

In the past, the elephant was not only used in the color red, but in all kinds of colors such as blue, yellow, black, white and green. All those colors were cozy and playful. For example, one time there was a yellow elephant on the box and the other time a red one. It was usually looked at which color best matched the color of the box. It was not until the end of the 60s that the red elephant was definitively chosen. Red is a color that stands out and attracts attention.

From 1945 Jumbo also started to focus on games made of cardboard. Jumbo has therefore been a guarantee for strong quality for years! Jumbo is a unique Dutch company with a rich history, with its head office in Zaandam. About 130 employees work for Jumbo. With a turnover of €75 million, Jumbo is a medium-sized European player in toys. Jumbo has sales offices in the Netherlands, Belgium, Germany and the United Kingdom. They export to more than 25 countries around the world.

In 1980 Jumbo starts the production of Jan van Haasteren Puzzles.

Party!

I wrote the above review (November 2021), and thought it was a very nice puzzle. It's Carnival! Something that doesn't happen much in this time - now it's Corona. The Carnivals are often cancelled. Nice if you can make a puzzle about this. Puzzles away nicely, certainly not difficult. And again a lot of nicely dressed people drawn by Jan van Haasteren. Aaaaaaf!
