Jan van Haasteren Puzzle 'Children's party'
If you are looking for the 1000 piece Jan van Haasteren Puzzle called 'Kinderfeestje', it is this one:
It is the puzzle 'Kinderfeestje' (Children's Birthday Party) – this is number 20035. This puzzle went on sale on October 3, 2020. The artist of this puzzle is Dick Heins.
Note: I found that the puzzle pieces came off easily. They are very nice shiny and shiny and smooth pieces. Feel really nice. I found the disadvantage that the pieces come off easily, which sometimes makes puzzling more difficult.
What do you encounter when you have made this Jan van Haasteren jigsaw puzzle?
The Jan van Haasteren puzzle children's party is a very nice puzzle. If you make this puzzle you will also be very happy. What do you see on this puzzle? At the bottom right of the puzzle you see, for example, a man with a lot of presents walking in a rack and behind it are children with presents. Furthermore, it is still very interesting to see the pool. All sorts of weird things happen in the pool there. A couple of children who go with a raft to the other side. There's a submarine in the pool with a squid glued to it. You will also see some fish in the pool and you will see some presents floating in the pool. What is also striking are the boy scouts at the pool. You occasionally see the Boy Scouts in Jan van Haasteren's puzzles. However, these boy scouts also have all kinds of presents with them because of the children's party. What you don't see in this puzzle 'who is the birthday boy'? Who is the children's birthday? Whoever has a birthday will probably live in the house. But you don't see the birthday child. What you see even more in this puzzle is, for example, the merry-go-round. Baron van Tast van tot Zeveren sits on the merry-go-round. And in the merry-go-round you also see the Fat lady with the little man. There are a lot of party hats that almost all children have on. You can also see here that it is possible to swing during the children's party. And you also see that children are sack race. Certainly all things that you see or that can be done during a children's party. A very large bouncy castle or air cushion where children are jumping. The children are also wearing party hats here. But also the police who jump very cheerfully on the bouncy castle. However, the bouncy castle has become nice because of an arrow and someone who tries to inflate the air cushion with the bicycle pump. A funny element is that you also see fish swimming nearby or on the air cushion. What often happens at a children's party is of course eating an ice cream. And also in front of the house is an ice cream man selling ice cream. A striking presence at the children's party is Sinterklaas because you don't see him that often and an Indian sitting in the house and even more in the house is also Jan van Haasteren himself. Those are striking appearances during this children's party. The house is painted with the letters 'Happy Birthday' or 'Happy Birthday'. Another element that you often see at children's parties is of course climbing. Children are climbing at the wall of the house. And what is often done during children's parties is jumping on the trampoline. You will see several children and even a dog jumping on the trampoline. And of course, what should not be missing at a children's party are the fries or the fries. At the house you see someone who is baking fries, but children are waiting in a long queue for the fries because the person who is making the fries has no more potatoes. And you see that the potatoes are handed by a lady from the house. What you don't often see at a children's party is a camel. However, you can see that in this puzzle. It is very striking that the father of the artist Dick Heins is also on the puzzle.
It seems that the puzzle 'Kinderfeestje' is the first puzzle in which Dick Heins' father appears. His father passed away in March 2020.
You also see artist Dick Heins himself from the Jan van Haasteren studio – he drops the coffee:
However, also the second draftsman of the Jan van Haasteren studio, Rob Derks, you see on this puzzle, at the bottom left you see it:
What you also see a lot are a lot of balloons, balloons in all kinds of colors. That made puzzling difficult because there are so many balloons and you don't know where which balloon belongs. Oh yes, and of course, don't miss eating cake! You also see a lot of pie eating on this puzzle. But you also see that cake is thrown. A monkey that eats a lot of cakes. A clown would also fit perfectly at a children's party. And the clown can also be seen on the puzzle. You also see children shooting with a water pistol at each other, which is of course always fun to do during a children's party. What you see even more is the waterslide children who run fast and then take a ride with their bellies over a smooth cloth with water on it.
Laying this puzzle
I made this puzzle on a puzzle mat of 1 meter 60 wide and 90 centimeters high. I find that useful, because I regularly have to move the puzzle again. I once bought this puzzle completely new and not second-hand via a Marketplace or Facebook Marketplace. Usually it is cheaper and I then resell it. This time I enjoyed making a whole 'new' puzzle. I must say that the pieces are very nice and feel very smooth when you run your hand over them. But as with some other puzzles, the pieces also come off easily, which makes puzzling more difficult. I like it when the pieces stick together a bit. The advantage is that you can easily puzzle outside your puzzle, for example, and then drag a made 'block' of 4 to 6 pieces into your puzzle. There is also no poster with this puzzle, so you have to make do with the example on the box of the puzzle. I thought that was quite ok this time, perhaps because this puzzle was still fairly easy to make. As you can read below, I was quite 'quick' about it. I usually start by explaining all the pieces on my puzzle mat. And, as you can see, I'm already figuring out the straights:
As a result, I first laid the straight pieces, but as so often I miss 1 piece of the edges. Happens to me very often. I'll find this piece later. But still a little irritation :-).
Then I went looking for pieces with the brightest colors, and that was the pink of the merry-go-round, with Baron van Tast on it. That roof seemed complicated to me, but I also started looking for all the pieces with the roof tiles. I had expected to be able to easily place the white letters on the roof with 'Happy Birthday', but that disappointed me:
I managed to get the roof and I also looked up all the dark gray pieces with the edges of the house, that was quite easy. Also collected some bright pieces of the air cushion or bouncy castle. And at the very bottom you see a number of large presents, which were recognizable. But: can you already say, there are a lot of presents in this puzzle and those smaller ones were really difficult to trace on the puzzle. Oh yes, you always see Sinterklaas pretty quickly on the pieces:
I started to focus on the pool and the air cushion, both difficult! Especially the pool, because a lot happens IN the pool, which is difficult to recognize. That merry-go-round with the children in it also remained difficult:
And yes! Finished another puzzle, now the search can begin for all Jan van Haasteren's recurring elements. Which one can you find and then how many more of such a recurring element can you find? You can see all those items in my videos below. But it is again a very nice puzzle, and it made me very happy:
Here you see the puzzle on the puzzle mat with the box:
Also about JvH's jigsaw puzzle 'Kinderfeestje'
I think that all elements that you have experienced yourself during a children's party are in the puzzle. I would say the main ones: cake, eating ice cream, balloons, party hat, swimming, lots of presents, drinking orange juice, sack races, swinging, bouncy castle, trampoline, climbing, eating fries, clown, swimming pool, skippy ball, seesaw in a playground. You see all this on the puzzle. Just look them up!
Jan van Haasteren 'Children's party' 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.
General review about this puzzle
I made a general review about this jigsaw puzzle, in which you see some nice elements of this puzzle:
Jan van Haasteren puzzle 'Children's party' - recurring element 1: The 3 Holes
I hadn't seen/found the 3 Holes or Look Holes at first, I came across them by accident. That's how well they were hidden. Not in every puzzle:
Jan van Haasteren puzzle 'Children's party' - recurring element 2: Baron van Tast tot Zeveren
Baron van Tast tot Zeveren is from an old strip by Jan van Haasteren, as is the Shark fin. Doesn't always come back, and is recognizable by his sideburns, black pants and blue jacket. Unfortunately his cake flees from his plate:
Jan van Haasteren puzzle 'Children's party' - recurring element 3: The Krab
The Crab was also well hidden this time, but it is in a good place, namely near or in the water:
Jan van Haasteren puzzle 'Children's party' - recurring element 4: The Fat Woman
You often come across the Fat woman and the 'little man' belonging to it, so this time you do:
Jan van Haasteren puzzle 'Children's party' - recurring element 5: The Shark fin
Yes, the shark fin, the hallmark of JvH, certainly always comes back and is often easy to find:
Jan van Haasteren puzzle 'Children's party' - recurring element 6: The Hands
You see the Hands often and a lot and in the strangest places, this time there are not so many. I don't look them all up either:
Jan van Haasteren puzzle 'Children's party' - recurring element 7: The Indian
Indian is now also a regular appearance in all JvH puzzles:
Jan van Haasteren puzzle 'Children's party' - recurring element 8: The Squid
The squid is also often there and this time it takes over the submarine. He looks rather angry, is the pool perhaps 'his' pool?
Jan van Haasteren puzzle 'Children's party' - recurring element 9: Self-portrait Jan van Haasteren
Very occasionally you see a self-portrait of Jan van Haasteren; he also appears in his own puzzles. However, this puzzle was drawn by Dick Heins. But still you see Jan van Haasteren; if you don't recognize it immediately, take a look at the box of the puzzle:
Jan van Haasteren puzzle 'Children's party' - recurring element 10: Jane stickers
Jane stickers are common and common, sometimes as many as 14 stickers in a puzzle. Who is Jane, if you want to know, read 'recurring elements Jan van Haasteren'. I found a few Jane stickers, there weren't that many:
Jan van Haasteren puzzle 'Children's party' - recurring element 11: Molletje
Molletje is rare, but because I like him so much, I took him in; he is relaxing on the merry-go-round:
Jan van Haasteren puzzle 'Children's party' - recurring element 12: The Eyes
There are often many eyes and in the most special places, they like to watch 🙂
Jan van Haasteren puzzle 'Children's party' - recurring element 13: Periscope
The Periscope is part of a submarine, but this time it's not on the submarine, but close to it. Appears in almost all puzzles:
Jan van Haasteren puzzle 'Children's party' - recurring element 14: The Arrow, 1x
This time I found De Pijl by accident, but you may hardly even see it in the photo below, it is so hard to find. Look closely, he is there:
Jan van Haasteren puzzle 'Children's party' - recurring element 15: Plasters, 3x
I like to look up all the Plasters again, I have found 3 and also assume that these are all of them. Difficult search picture:
Jan van Haasteren puzzle 'Children's party' - recurring element 16: Cat and Mouse
The Cat or the Cat is also common. Often he wants to grab a mouse or bird, and this time he's chasing a mouse, but gets stuck in the hedge:
Jan van Haasteren puzzle 'Children's party' - recurring element 17: Police and Boef
Police and Boef are often a nice duo, sometimes they even do things together (Eurovision Song Contest puzzle), often they are very close together. The police are now joining in on the bouncy castle and the crook inflates a balloon in the shape of a bullet
Jan van Haasteren puzzle 'Children's party' - recurring element 18: Sinterklaas
Sinterklaas is always easy to find, this time too. He is drinking orange juice and has already finished his pastry. But what does a penguin do at a children's party, next to Sinterklaas??
Jan van Haasteren puzzle 'Children's party' - recurring element 19: The Tax Official
The Tax Official (Tax Inspector) is rare. From other puzzles I know that it says 'Tax Official' on his briefcase:
Jan van Haasteren puzzle 'Children's party' - recurring element 20: Super snail
I really like Super Snail and sometimes he is with his friend turtle. And often Supersnail runs very fast or has a competition. He now does the latter with his friend turtle:
How big is the puzzle Jan van Haasteren 'Children's party' 1000 pieces?
This puzzle also has dimensions of 68 (width) by 49 (height). I made the puzzle on a puzzle mat of 1 meter 60 wide and 90 centimeters high.
How long will it take you to complete this 1000 piece puzzle?
I made the puzzle 'Children's party' in peace and also took several days. Beautifully made on a puzzle mat 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 = 30 minutes
- Laying the rest of the pieces = 6 hours and 30 minutes
- So it took me a total of 7 hours and 20 minutes to complete this puzzle. That is faster than it takes me on average over a JvH jigsaw puzzle, namely about 8 hours
I also have to say that my 9 year old daughter helped with laying the last pieces!

About Jumbo puzzles
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.

Children's party is really a top puzzle. It makes you very happy, the whole puzzle radiates party! You see a lot of cake, and a lot of children playing. Afterwards I went looking for the well-known JvH elements again. And quite nice, the father of the artist (Dick Heins) of this puzzle also appeared on the puzzle. Can you find him :-) ?
