Bigjigs Toys Ltd was established in 1985 by Peter and Liz Ireland, both teachers in their previous careers. They decided to develop a company that would make learning fun with the use of traditional wooden toys.
At the very beginning Peter and Liz could be found working in their garden shed, cutting out pieces of wooden jigsaw puzzles by hand. They would sell the jigsaw puzzles at local craft fairs and agricultural shows, travelling far and wide to find their customers.
Since then, Peter and Liz’s two sons have also joined the family business and helped extend the Bigjigs family to a team of dedicated staff who are passionate about educational and fun toys.
