What do you encounter when you have made this Jan van Haasteren jigsaw puzzle?

Jumbo goes shopping is a very nice puzzle, quite easy to make. Your puzzle challenge is slightly less. But the recurring elements to look up afterwards are very many and they are very nice. At first glance, the puzzle seems simple in terms of drawing. But if you look more closely, nothing could be further from the truth, there are again many hidden fun elements and jokes. The very nice thing is of course the title of the puzzle 'Jumbo goes shopping'. Is this a reference to the maker of all Jan van Haasteren puzzles: JUMBO. Or does the name Jumbo for the elephant come from somewhere else? In any case, I think it's a very nice side effect, but I suspect that the name Jumbo mainly comes from the name of the world-famous elephant that was called Jumbo.
The nice thing is that you also see a large Jumbo elephant on this puzzle, and that this Jumbo has gone shopping for a while, a shopping cart hangs from his trunk. When he walked out, he walked over several cars, including the blue car at the bottom of Jan van Haasteren's puzzle (you see Jan van Haasteren looking at his car in shock):
jan-van-hasten-jumbo-goes-shopping-recurring-element-cigar
And the Fat woman and the little man have also run over and are recovering on the footpath.
How could Jumbo escape? At the top of the puzzle you see a 'ZOO', and there you see that elephant Jumbo has walked right through the wall:
rsz_jan-van-haasteren-jumbo-goes-shopping-zoo
Then he went shopping, and then walked out again with a shopping cart. In the meantime, the zoo staff has been warned, because you see 6 zoo employees in green suits standing in front of jumbo (you see that their caps say 'zoo'). One stands in front of Jumbo with a safety net, the other with a wooden stick and yet another woman stands in front of him with a first aid kit. And a man in a white suit is standing by with a syringe. Funny element is the Indian who is standing by and ready with his bow and arrow!
jan-van-haagen-jumbo-goes-shopping-recurring-element-indian
And the animal ambulance is ready. The police are there to make sure everything runs smoothly, but it's chaos everywhere! The TV people are already there and are interviewing an employee of the zoo.


Where does the name 'Jumbo' come from in the title 'Jumbo goes shopping'?

Of course I had to look it up myself, because I didn't know this, but I was able to find the following about the world famous elephant 'Jumbo' (source: Wikipedia):
Jumbo (1861 – September 15, 1885) was a very large savanna elephant, who was born in French Sudan. It was shipped to France, where it was kept in the old zoo Jardin des Plantes, near Gare d'Austerlitz in Paris. In 1865 he was transferred to London Zoo, where he became famous for the rides that visitors were allowed to take on him. The London zoo staff named the elephant Jumbo. That name is probably a corruption of two Swahili words, jambo, which means "hello" and jumbe, which means "the leader". In 1882 Jumbo was sold to Phineas Taylor Barnum for $10.000 for his circus. During Easter 1882, Jumbo made his debut at the Barnum & Bailey circus in New York. The circus attracted no less than 20.000 visitors every day.”
Much more is known about this large elephant 'Jumbo', if you want to read the whole story, read this article on History.net, eventually Jumbo died:
“On September 15, 1885, Jumbo was tragically killed on a railroad in St. Thomas, Ontario, Canada.”


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 received this puzzle brand new during Sinterklaas 2020. I usually exchanged and bought Jan van Haasteren puzzles on Marktplaats or via Facebook Marketplace. But making a new puzzle is much more fun than a second-hand one. And the nice thing is that I made a fairly new puzzle, because it was only released on September 12, 2020. I always start by explaining the pieces on the puzzle mat, sorting the straight pieces:
jan-van-haasteren-jumbo-goes-shopping-puzzle-1000-pieces-pieces-placed-with-box-1
After laying out the pieces, I start laying the edges of the puzzle. It often happens that I still miss a straight piece, because I have not sorted properly, or that a piece is missing. Neither was the case this time:
jan-van-haasteren-jumbo-goes-shopping-puzzle-1000-pieces-edges-laid-with-box-1.jpg
After that I always start by sorting the same colors of the puzzle, and then I immediately came to the car;s. And letters on a puzzle are always very easy to put together, so I start with that. This is the result after 2 hours of puzzling:
jan-van-hureren-jumbo-goes-shopping-puzzle-1000-pieces-after-2-hour-1
As you can see, I saved to the last the streets and the walls of the zoo; they have almost all the same color and that is the most difficult puzzle. All the people who come to see Jumbo were also difficult to explain, especially the group of people standing at the supermarket. You can see my result after 3,5 hours of puzzling:
jan-van-hureren-jumbo-goes-shopping-puzzle-1000-pieces-after-3-5-o'clock-1
In the end I finished the puzzle, and that is always a very nice moment:
jan-van-haasten-jumbo-goes-shopping-puzzle-1000-pieces-puzzle-off-600-444
And again the puzzle that is finished with the box:

This puzzle was once made during the Dutch National Championships Puzzle

Nice to know, this puzzle was used during the NK Puzzle. During the preliminary round in Eefde on 6-11-2021, a team consists of 4 people. With 4 people they have put this puzzle in a time of 1:07:39. So if you think you can participate in the Dutch National Championships? Then multiply this time x4 and you have an indication whether you are a fast puzzler. By the way: puzzle the NK is especially fun and fun to participate in!


Jan van Haasteren 'Jumbo goes shopping' 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 'Jumbo goes shopping' - recurring element 1: The 3 Peepholes

Jan van Haasteren puzzle 'Jumbo goes shopping' - recurring element 2: Baron van Tast tot Zeveren

Jan van Haasteren puzzle 'Jumbo goes shopping' - recurring element 3: The bowler hat on legs

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 this puzzle at my leisure, and it was a lot of fun. Still, the puzzle challenge was significantly easier than usual. Rarely have I put together a JvH puzzle as quickly as this one. I was amazed at how quickly I put this puzzle together and even started to doubt whether I had made a mistake in noting my time. I've spent my time on this puzzle as follows:

  • Explaining the puzzle pieces on the puzzle mat: 25 minutes
  • Putting the edges of the puzzle together: 25 minutes
  • Completing the rest of the puzzle: 3 hours and 45 minutes
  • Total time done on the puzzle: small 5 hours

This is significantly faster than other puzzles, normally it takes me about 8 hours on average

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.

through Gerben van Vineyards op Puzzle 1000 pieces
Easy, but thoroughly JvH!

I wrote the above review in December 2020. This puzzle was exceptionally easy, I had never made a Jan van Haasteren puzzle in about 4 to 5 hours. That is sometimes a bit of a shame, because the puzzle itself remains the most fun, and is not too easy. However, given a 4 out of 5 stars, because there are extremely many recurring elements, you can see that from the list above. That makes a lot of good. Nice puzzle!
