I have done SPRINGBOK puzzles since late 70's. There is no other puzzle like it. One of my greatest regrets is that I don't have them. They were so memorable with so much quality. I could pick them up and they wouldn't fall apart. If any are available from that time I would buy them and do them again and again,
April 1, 2013
I have been doing Springbok puzzles since the first one my mother sent me in 1963 while we were in West Germany , where my husband was stationed with the Canadian Army. I have tried others over the years but only buy Springbok!! When I had trouble getting them here in Canada I would go to the States and buy 15 at a time. And I have kept my favourites and done them several times over the years. Some of the Christmas ones I have glued and framed for decoration at Xmas time. I would like to see more of the 500 piece or various sizes within one puzzle. I have had to downsize our apartment and don't have a large dining table anymore for leaving them up on while I work on them. I always have a puzzle being worked on!! And for some reason they are getting hard to buy here in Canada again. The Hallmark store are becoming few and far between. But thank you, for all the enjoyment you have given me over the last 50 years.

Puzzle Review: It was very easy to handle and lock in place without shifting apart. The colors are vivid. When I completed the puzzle I noticed that it had a nice glossy finish. I enjoyed it more than any puzzle I've ever put together. I give it a "5" star rating. Myra Moore

I received a Springbok puzzle as a gift and was so impressed with the quality, I have ordered and completed at least 10 more 1000 piece puzzles. Please expand this line if you can. They are the most well made puzzles I have ever done and I have been making puzzles for years. I will not buy any other brand now other than Springbok! Thank you for the hours of entertainment. Call me if you ever need a tester. Eileen Chatsworth, CA

I LOVE Springbok puzzles and will buy no others! I have been working and collecting them for about 35 years now. When my children were younger and lived at home I could not afford to buy myself very many but now that they are not my financial responsibility any more I have increased the size of my collection to about 200.Yes the older ones were thicker and the pieces stayed together better but they are still the highest quality puzzles available. Some of my favorites over the years have been patchwork fancy,verticalville, plantasia, and more recently shoes and purses. I was able to work the 2000 piece purses in a time span of a 5 movie marathon (about 11-12 hours). I always glance at the box, turn it over, then once I begin I cannot walk away until it is complete! I just ordered 15 more and I can't wait for them to get here! I love the colors, the shapes of the pieces, the way they hold together, everything! For those of you that like to work your puzzles over and over like me but are not fond of sorting out the edge pieces my suggestion is to put them in a sandwich baggie when you take it apart and put it back in the box! My kids say that is cheating but I don't care, to me it is a time saver.

Received 'Autumn Reflections' for Christmas. Took me a few months as I work full-time. What fun! We've put many puzzles together & have tried them all. Springbok puzzles are the best. Keep up the great work.
February 26, 2013
I just finished the 50 Anniversary Commerative Puzzle. There is no puzzle like a Springbok. This was a real trip down memory lane as I had worked a number of the puzzles included in this puzzle. I love the round puzzles. A number of my friends do too. LET'S HAVE MORE OF THE ROUND PUZZLES.
February 12, 2013
I LOVE Springbok puzzles!! They are by far the best quality puzzle out there and they are the only ones I'll do. I find puzzle making to be challenging and addicting, yet relaxing at the same time, and its only fun if the pieces fit well together and hold up over time. My daughter and I spend hours at a time putting Springbok puzzles together and now I've turned her into a Springbok puzzle snob too. It truly makes a difference! Thank you for offering your high quality product, fun pictures and interesting variety - keep them coming!
February 8, 2013
I will ONLY do Springbok puzzles--and we do a lot of them...when I see others doing 'regular' puzzles, I cringe, cause the pieces are so small and so thin! LOVE LOVE LOVE Springbok!! I just received 2 by mail and will order 2 more when we have finished these!! Thanks SO much!
February 1, 2013
Have enjoyed Springbok puzzles for many years. They are the only ones we do. The backing has gotten a little lighter but they still go together and are beautiful when we are done....Thanks for many hours of enjoyment on a cold winter night!!!!!!!!
January 20, 2013
I love springbok puzzles. I have not found any other to compare with the quality. Just one suggestion. It would be nice to have an extra picture for the larger Christmas puzzles so that when more than one person is working on it everyone is not wanting to see the top of the box.
January 16, 2013
I absolutely LOVE Springbok puzzles! I discovered them when I worked at a Rexall Drug when I was a kid. The store also carried Hallmark and gift items. The quality of a Springbok puzzles is superb! The older ones could be picked up all in one piece and not fall apart. I think the puzzle material was a little thicker. Springbok is the only brand puzzles I will buy.
January 15, 2013
I love my springbok puzzles. I have 20 or 30. My wife (deceased 7 years ago) always said "if you are going to buy a puzzle it HAS to be a springbok".
January 15, 2013
I bought a 2000 piece puzzle for my husband and I do do over Xmas. We were amazed at the quality of the workmanship. There was only one piece that would fit any particular place and some of the pieces were quite 'sneaky'. We will buy only your puzzles from now on.
January 12, 2013
I have been buying and working your puzzles for many years; and I am always thrilled with to quality of your product as well as the originality of each new puzzle. Thank you for making your puzzles available to all of us with their "works of art" and the peace and satisifaction that each puzzle brings us as we slowly put them together. Most Sincerely, Bonnie
January 9, 2013
I have been buying Springbok puzzles for as far back as I can remember and I am now 65 years old. They are the very best puzzles out there! I do struggle with other brands, as my favorite subjects are animals, but I get so excited when I find a new Springbok Animal puzzle to do, because they are truly the world's BEST!
January 8, 2013
I bought my first Springbok about 25 years ago. It was "The Ultimate Brownie". Since then, I've been a "puzzle snob" and do Springboks exclusively. Currently, I have over 25 of your puzzles and am always looking for more. I love the variety of pieces; No puzzles with pieces that have "two innies and two outies". Keep up the great production.
January 6, 2013
I have been doing only Springbok puzzles for the last 50 years. The most difficult one was "Little Red Riding Hood's Hood". It was a circular all red, no corners. it took me 6 weeks but I loved every minute. Just finished Shells and Boy Scouts., which my grandsons helped me with, they are both scouts.
January 3, 2013
My wife and I have recently assembled two Springbok puzzles. We are very fond of their snug fit, great color, and of the random cut which produces interesting shaped pieces that are challenging and fun to work with. Very few puzzle manufacturers offer this random cut. Really good puzzles.
December 29, 2012
I put together the 1500 piece Santa's Return puzzle over Christmas. It is a beautiful, vividly colored picture that shows all the warmth and nostalgia of Christmas. It came together quickly even though it has a lot of red in it. Santa's face is delightful and his eyes dance in his face. LOVED this puzzle and will do it again and again in Christmas's to come.
December 29, 2012
Springbok makes the best quality puzzles. They are made on quality heavy cardboard and pieces are clear cut so their fit is clean and distinct. You can pick the puzzles up after they are complete and they stay together. My kids and I have put together hundreds of Springbok puzzles through the years and have never been disappointed. We have sealed and framed a few through the years. Working puzzles is a tradition of many years but we always get Springbok! Consistent excellent quality!
December 23, 2012
I have been making puzzles for years. Springbok is by far the BEST puzzle I have ever assembled. The puzzle sticks together so well, I am actually able to flip it over when finished without losing a single piece as I tape the back before framing. I am on my third one and cannot wait to order more. I do the 1000 piece puzzles. Eileen Denberg
December 18, 2012
I have been collecting Springbok Christmas puzzles since 1976. Have about 40. Every year I put them all together starting in Oct. and hang them on the walls of my home. When Christmas is over I take them all down and redo them the next year. I started with the 1976 wreath when my first daughter was born. Now both my daughters and grandchildren are collecting them and do the same thing.They are still interlocking after 36 years. Love them. No other puzzles interlock like the Springbok.
December 5, 2012
WE JUST FINISHED THE PUZZLE, "SANTA WITH A CAT" . IT IS BEAUTIFUL AND WE ARE SO HAPPY WITH IT.
December 5, 2012
I have just finished your SeaShells 1500 pieces. I started in mid-September and her it is the first week of December. The colors merge from one to another which makes it difficult, especially when the colors of the puzzle pieces do not correlate well to the colors on the box (i.e. off white ends up being brown, etc.). It was really a challenge, but enjoyable! If you would like pictures, I have them.
November 30, 2012
I just finished the "Candy Galore" 1000 piece puzzle. I am passionate about puzzles and this was one of the best I've done in years. Heavy cardboard pieces that stay together - in fact my son held up the finished puzzle and it hung like a blanket! The colors are brilliant and just looking at the jars of candy made my mouth water. Truly a SWEET experience. :-). I am a huge Springbok fan!
November 19, 2012
My sister sent two of the 36 pc. puzzles for our Mother, who now has dementia. She could easily put them together and I could see the feeling of accomplishment on her face. It was a joy to see as there are so many things she can no longer do. I be looking for more for her and for my young grandchildren.
November 15, 2012
just completed your 1000 piece Santa's Delivery and must compliment you on the quality and piece patterns. i was especially impressed with how well the pieces interlocked. i know the 1st company to look for in puzzles will be springbok. keep up the good work!!
November 3, 2012
I am a huge puzzler springbok is one of my favorites great quality made in the USA
October 27, 2012
I just finished your 2000 piece puzzle entitled, Purses! Purses! Purses! It was fabulous and lots of fun.
October 19, 2012
I would like to let you know that I have purchased 3 of your 36 piece puzzles from the Hallmark store in Brantford, On. for my mother. She really likes them as she can not do the regular puzzles any more. We have also shared them with another lady who can not see to do regular puzzles. I have also purchased the 60 piece children's puzzles for her. She really enjoys doing them, (I do have to help her with them). I am going to order a few of the children's puzzles for her.Thank you for making these puzzles.
October 12, 2012
I love the springbok puzzles! It is by far the best brand for puzzles. The pieces are very durable and the colors are vibrant. My kids enjoy the family puzzles and feel good when they are able to help piece the puzzle together. My favorites are the food themed puzzles. Sometimes the pieces are strangely-shaped which makes it both fun and challenging.
October 11, 2012
Just roamed through your archives to enjoy the memories and know you have missed the best one. The Dole banana from the '70's. It was the first Springbok I did with friends. Still laugh over the experience. Thanks for years of great puzzles.
October 2, 2012
I bought a Springbok puzzle from a local store a month ago which is my first time using this brand. Out of all brands I have done (about 5 other brands) , this Springbok one is really good because the pieces really stay together and does not come apart if you need to move the puzzle slightly and the pieces are a little thicker and larger than most tradional puzzles. Therefore, any new puzzles I plan to shop in the near future , I will shop Springbok first. Top quality!
September 19, 2012
Love Springbok puzzles. When I was a middle school teacher many years ago, I would use them as wall hangings in my room. The children loved them. I have held many other positions, but am now retired and still enjoy my Springbok puzzles. Especially happy to be able to buy them on the web. Going to complete an order now to make my grandson, Henry, very happy. He will love them. Thanks. P.S. also, going to buy a couple for myself. Currently working on one. Just about finished.
August 24, 2012
what a challange! i loved it-the strange shapes took me a little longer to complete but i enjoyed every minute of this puzzle (it had a lot of sky and ocean!) and it's a beautiful picture. i take a photo of my finished puzzles and put on my computer in a slide show so i can enjoy them even after i pass them on
August 21, 2012
You make great puzzles!
August 10, 2012
The pieces lay flat, colors are vivid. Worth the money, never disappointed , the quality is great.
July 31, 2012
I have become such a puzzle snob. I love doing puzzles, it did not matter the brand, piece size or picture. I had over 10 before I dicovered Springbok. I have changed! I will only do a SPRINGBOK puzzle now. My family cannot believe that there is any difference between the types of puzzles. What do they know! I do the 1000 or more piece puzzle. Love the graphic/colorful puzzles. I have never worked on a better puzzle. The size, color, and quality are just the best. Keep them coming.
July 29, 2012
My oldest daughter brought me the puzzle Colorful Canopy. My son and his wife and grandson came to visit me and found the puzzle, and said it would be a "dosy" to do. they decided to try and by working out from the tree branches and after working many hours they completed it. I have left it on the table for some time as it is quite pretty. I will buy another Springbok.
July 12, 2012
I love your puzzles but I have most of them and are waiting for some new and different.
July 11, 2012
Wow! My wife and I thought we were puzzlers until we bought the "dice" puzzle. We have been puzzled for weeks trying to put this thing together. What a mind blowing experience. I love it.
July 10, 2012
I love to put jigsaw puzzles together. I ordered one of your puzzles and I really like it. The pieces are easy to handle and the colors are very bright and I love the various shapes of the pieces.
June 25, 2012
My husband and I just finished the best puzzle that either one of us had ever done. The pieces locked together nicely, the colors were great, and the shapes were different and challenging! Thank-you for such a quality product. Carole, MN
June 16, 2012
I've been a big fan of Springbok since I did my first one around 1968. It was a circular one of a stained glass window.Whenever I purchase a new puzzle I always look for a Springbok because of the quality of the material, the various shapes of the pieces, and the variety of subject matter. I currently have about ten of them, and all have been done several times each. I find the 2,000-piece puzzles the most challenging. Keep up the good work!
June 14, 2012
I just finished the puzzle "Garden Delights" That was a tough puzzle, but I thoroughly enjoyed it. I have glued it and have it hanging in my garden room. Love your puzzles. Thanks.
May 11, 2012
I have just completed a 500 pc. Springbok puzzle called Jackpot.Initially I was a little put off by the retail price of $18.95, but after going back to the store a second time, I could not resist. It is a metallic foil type surface and I was concerned that the edges of the pieces may lift or separate when putting it together, but there was no problem at all. I loved the colors and the size and shapes of the pieces. It's just like a good book you can't put down until its finished. 100% enjoyment. Usually I sell my used puzzles in a garage sale, but this one is going to be the first in my "keeper" box! Keep up the good work. I will be looking for more Springboks!
May 8, 2012
Springbok makes the BEST puzzles ever! The bright colors mixed with the interesting shapes cause delight in my heart as the picture comes together after much effort and fun. Thank you so much for your high quality.
May 5, 2012
Dear Sir, Over the years my wife and I have worked many puzzles and we always enjoyed your puzzles. After 48 years of marriage, I lost my wife, Mary to a brain tumor last fall. From the time they found it, she only lasted 6 weeks. For several months, I couldn't do any puzzles. About a week ago, I got out a puzzle my neighbors gave me for Christmas, "Mountain Mirror" by Springbok. I enjoyed putting it together and while working on it, I felt the closeness we had when we worked together on puzzles. All of your puzzles that I have worked have always been high quality and I hope you keep up the good work.
May 4, 2012
I just started my puzzles back up after having a baby amost two years ago. My toddler know likes to "help" me put them together so she sits on my lap we work it together. Unfortunately, she loves "helping" when I am not there are yesterday pulled half of my "Gumballs and Gumdrops" puzzle off of the table. Poor Vivi thought she was in for it...but no need to panic! One thing I adore about my Springbok puzzles....they stay together!
May 4, 2012
I have been buying Springbok jig saw puzzles for decades and my family knows better than to gift me with anything but Springbok because the others just aren't up to snuff. Springbok pieces are perfectly cut, the colors are rich and true, the designs are wonderful. Working on Springbok puzzles is an aesthetic experience. The dedicated puzzle table in my house holds only Springboks. I love them.
April 30, 2012
My sister and I just love the Coca Cola puzzles. The peices are interlocking and stay together. We did a 2000 one a number of years ago that had the old fashioned coke boxes in it as well as an old bike. Our whole family joined in and helped put it together and I preserved it and hung it on my patio wall where it stayed for several years and finally faded pretty badly. We have done several others in the meantime.
April 25, 2012
I love your line of "puzzles to remember." I work with seniors who have dementia, alzheimers, vision problems, etc. These puzzles keep their minds active and allow them to accomplish something in one day- as opposed to the 1000 pc puzzles that are laid out in most of the care facilities. Please keep making more. I often look at the 350 pc puzzles with the distinct objects and bright colors and wish they were available in 36 pc. Thank you for making this variety!!
April 18, 2012
We are avid puzzlers. Your jigsaws are of outstanding quality; I enjoy the various unusual shapes. I am surprised that Knitter's Delight is classified as Intermediate. We thought it was the hardest one we had ever done but thoroughly enjoyed it. We are now doing Yesteryear which is classified as advanced and we find it easy - probably after doing the last jigsaw.
April 16, 2012
Just finished the Cliff Hanger puzzle and it is beautiful. Have done many of your puzzles (1000 pcs.) and like the sturdy weight of them. Love to work them in the hot summers we have here in Fl. when it is too hot to go out. Thank you for bringing us wonderful puzzles.
April 15, 2012
Just finished the Jackpot puzzle, what a surprise to see the pretty pieces. Went very fast, it was real easy.500 pcs. Love your puzzles.
April 6, 2012
SPRINGBOK PUZZLES are the best quality ever!!! Great for family fun!
April 3, 2012
Great products, even better customer service. Color of Money is a 2000 piece beast. It was fun and quite challenging. The pieces are larger, which is great. When completed, it's probably 40", top to bottom. All the pieces are uniquely shaped, great colors. We also got Canned Veggies and enjoyed this one as well. My wife and I really love SpringBok puzzles. Unfortunately, a piece was missing from the canned veggies, which can happen during cutting and packaging I suppose. I called customer service and spoke to a friendly gal, we talked puzzles. SpringBok sent me a whole new puzzle! I required some follow up service and SpringBok did not disappoint. The customer service experience was exceptional. I'm a SpringBok customer for life.
March 30, 2012
Have been doing springbok puzzles all my life, the best puzzles in the world in my opinion! I competed in several Springbok sponsored competitions back in the 1980's. They were so much fun! If any one else out there was involved in these competitions you know what I mean. Keep up the good work Springbok! Please bring back the competition!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
March 23, 2012
just finished the puzzle with the 1000 pc picture of dice. enjoyed it very much.took me about 3 weeks to finish working one to 3 hours a day. thanks. mel
March 17, 2012
I love your puzzles. I know when I buy one the colours will be true to the picture, the pieces will be easy to handle, will fit together snuggly , a good size , shape and thickness. I They are a pleasure to do. I like that you have brought out puzzles for people with dementia. Thank you
March 15, 2012
My husband and I just finished "Canned Veggies". It took us about 8 hours to finish. It was absolutely delightful. We love the thick pieces (hate puzzles that are paper-thin!), the precise cut, and the way they snap into place. Colors are vibrant and true-to-life. Best of all, this puzzle is made in the USA!!! Thank you, Springbok!!! :)
March 9, 2012
Your puzzles are of excellent quality and I'm pleased there on ones suitable for Alzheimer's patients. Ones of larger size (and thickness as other brands carry) is so helpful as I have our mother working on them to keep her to keep alert and help pass the time. I wish to also point out that I am so very pleased that your puzzles are MADE IN THE USA., as if made offshore I will NO longer purchase. Keep up the good quality!!!
March 8, 2012
I just completed the 2000 piece Ladies Shoes puzzle. I worked on this usually in the evenings for about 4 hours. My husband kept walking by the table just saying "wow"...he was so proud of me finishing this. He took pictures of the finished project and emailed them to family & friends. I had so much fun with this and found it so relaxing. My next one will be the Ladies Purses. Great puzzles.
March 5, 2012
We have just finished 2 of the 2000 piece puzzles, the 1JIG20482 with the ladies shoes. That was the first, Then we did 1JIG20492 with the Purses. Theses were fun for the whole family. Each picks an item, and finishes it before moving to another. They have been great fun.
March 2, 2012
I recently finished the 1500 piece Peaceful Passage puzzle. Best and most enjoyable puzzle I have ever assembled and I have worked puzzles for years. Yours are the best. Look forward to my next Springbok puzzle. Thanks. RB
February 25, 2012
I've been doing Christmas jigsaws for over 25 years and Hatley Park, my first Springbok, puts the previous off-shore ones 'under-the-bed'. It provided some 30 hours of pure 'had-to-finish-it-asap' entertainment and a beautiful scene worthy of framing. Challanging yet fun, no 2 pieces the same thus few trial-and-error moves, a very tight interlocking cut for a secure and careful/movable completion and made in the U S of A! Thanks
February 20, 2012
My family and I just completed PURSES! PURSES! PURSES! and had so much fun. We had it out on the dining room table and anyone who came over was invited to join in. It was challenging but not impossible. The pieces were nice size and beautifully cut, interlocking well. I only wish I had a boutique in which to hang it and it match SHOES! SHOES! SHOES!
February 18, 2012
I received the 1500 piece puzzle shown here, named Buttons, for Christmas. It took a long time to put it together but the colors are magnificient. I have had it framed which was very expensive but it is too beautiful to take apart and put back in the box. The pieces interlock so well ... thanks for that.
February 16, 2012
Just finished your puzzle entitled "yesteryear". Was a little more challenging than most puzzles because there was alot going on in the puzzle. I really enjoyed the puzzle and would recommend it to anyone. It usually takes me about a week to finish a puzzle , this one took me two weeks to finish. I am an older woman and doing jigsaw puzzles are very enjoyable to me. Keep them coming, it is a great pass-time!!!
February 16, 2012
I just finished the knit knack puzzle,the pieces are bigger than what I expected,but the puzzle was still challenging. The colors were vibrant and the shapes fun to put together
February 12, 2012
I just finished the World Traveler puzzle and love it. The colors and positioning of the photos within the puzzle were great. I love the interlocking too. Would love to see some 750 piece puzzles. Sometimes 500 is too little and 1000 too big.
February 10, 2012
This must be where I write a review of the puzzle I purchased. It was the dice puzzle - it was a lot of fun to do - my granddaughter & I put it together - we found it was easier to do a section of it & then attach it to the frame & then attach the other sections as we put them together - I like that the pieces fit tight together so when you bump or move the puzzle it doesn't come apart. A nice puzzle - a lot of cool ones I'd like to do
February 4, 2012
I already sent a review on the puzzle that my friend gave me for Christmas. The main reason that I like your puzzles is they are FULLY interlocking - they don't fall apart when you bump them - a BIG plus for me. Suffice is to say, I ordered SEVEN more. Keep up the good work. Thanks Joy Smith.
February 4, 2012
I've done six of your puzzles and they're a lot of fun to put together. The unique shapes keep frustration away. The 1500 piece puzzles take awhile but are "do-able". And the finished puzzles are beautiful!
January 30, 2012
Wow! I bought my first Springbok 1000 piece puzzle about a week ago. It's called the "Football Fantasy". I had so much fun puzzling it because I am a big fan of football and how the pieces fit together was just phenomenal. I finished it in four days and I wasn't satisfied, so I went to buy another! This time I bought "Collectors Closet." Again I fell in love because of the vintage baseball memorabilia. I finished this one in three days. Please, please make a basketball puzzle with older and newer players, pennants, trophies, and other memorabilia. I think it would be a great seller! Thanks for your time.
January 18, 2012
These puzzles are fabulous. I received several puzzles for Christmas and after working 2 of these puzzles, I think these are absolutely the best. Hope hey keep adding more designs so that I can work more.
January 17, 2012
We have doing Springbok puzzles for about 40 years. We are great puzzles fans and your puzzles are more challenging then others on the market. It is the quality of the product. Love the way the pieces interlock together to make them a different shape and size. We have over 12 1000 piece Christmas puzzles and about the same amount of 500 piecces. We will do several during the holiday season each year.
January 16, 2012
I rec'd the 2000 piece puzzle for a Xmas gift & my husband had to put plywood together to sit on the card table because we couldn't even find a table big enough, I started it 1-3-12 and finished it today 1-15-12, I loved it! I had over 15 bowls filled with coke signs, reds & etc...great puzzle
January 9, 2012
We love the 500 piece Springbok puzzels. The pictures are great and the interlocking pieces are the easiest to use of any brand we have tried. Working these puzzles is so relaxing that we do one after every big project we tackle. Thanks for a great product
January 9, 2012
I have been doing Springbok Puzzles for years. I have found that they are very enjoyable and the color combinations are beautiful. I just finished the crayon puzzle and have really enjoyed it. After I have finished the puzzle I pass it on to friends and also senior centers.
January 8, 2012
I LOVE Springbok puzzles. You have been in my life since 1978. I love how sturdy the pieces fit together and stay together. It is a part of our family's Christmas tradition to buy a puzzle every Nov/Dec to put together before Christmas night...no presents until it's done!!! The whole family gets involved. I always have a couple throughout the year that I enjoy working on and leaving out for family and friends when they come to visit...nobody can resist "helping" finish the puzzle. I have no idea how many I've purchased throughout the years. All I know is that these puzzles represent hours upon hours of food, folks and fun as we all take a moment to talk and connect while finding piece after piece in a concerted effort to create and finalize something BEAUTIFUL!!
January 6, 2012
Greatest puzzles ever!! There's nothing more relaxing than working on a Springbok puzzle while listening to beautiful music during our cold cold winters here in Wisconsin.
January 3, 2012
We did the canned veggies--our first springbok puzzle. We liked the colors, the unusual shapes and the way the pieces locked together. We are sold on springbok puzzles. I am 12, my great grandmother is 70 something. We do puzzles together. This was our favorite puzzle we ever did.
January 2, 2012
I have been a long long friend of springbok. I started in 1978. At one time I had collected more than 40 puzzles, which I passed on to senior citizens and friends. There was only one puzzle that I gave up on, it was a circle, puzzle pieces cut but had colors of one piece you could have 3 colors. I again have started doing puzzles again. I pass them to kids and save a few for my grandchildren. Thank you again for producing such a great product and I am looking to many more years of enjoyment.
December 21, 2011
Being a puzzle fan for some while, I know how to judge a "GOOD" puzzle. Springbrook Puzzles are not only good, they are among the best. The colors are superior and the pieces lock into place extremely well. And if you ever have a problem with one of their products they will do whatever it takes to provide 100% satisfaction. Thanks Springbook, for such an excellent product.

I was really excited to see that Springbok had their own web site to buy their puzzles. I had a hard time finding these puzzles in stores. I am truly a puzzle snob. These are my absolute favorite puzzles. I grew up putting these puzzles together with my family and I couldn't resist buyiing my dad a 2000 piece puzzle this Christmas.
December 5, 2011
Your puzzles are the best! Pieces fit together tightly and are different from each other. The subject (pictures) are difficult, but not mind-blowing. I have been doing your puzzles for more than 30 years. An early one that I still have is "Time Pieces". Keep up the good work.
November 25, 2011
I just finishing working Courrier de Noel and really enjoyed the challenge. In my family , age 7 to 91 we only work the Springbok puzzles because they are the best. We have one going at all times.
November 13, 2011
I just bought and did your newest puzzle, Colorful Canopy. LOVED IT! It was a challenge but not frustrating. Just hard enough to keep us going but not so hard that we wanted to quit. I love your stuff- the different shaped pieces are so much more interesting that other companies "4 sides" for each piece. Keep up the good work.

My wife and I will build some twenty puzzles a winter. I believe we enjoy the ones we get from Halmark by far the most enjoyable. Thanks for the fun!!!
October 25, 2011
I have done eight of your puzzles and am completly hooked on your puzzles. They are the best quality and most fun of any puzzle I have done. I have two waiting for me to put them together. Fantastic! I Can't wait!
October 23, 2011
I have bought at least 30 springbok puzzles. Mostly Xmas. I decorate the house with them. My husband keeps saying NO MORE. They are the best puzzles. You can lift a finished puzzle and it won't come apart before I decopague it. I have tried other brand puzzles and was VERY DISSAPOINTED. I'm now doing a quilt puzzle for my quilter friend. THANKS SO MUCH Jani Wagner
October 21, 2011
We picked your puzzle because it is interlocking and we liked the picture. Your puzzles are wonderful and we will be looking for them when we purchase another. One other thing that is important to us is that your puzzles are made in the U.S.A. Thank you.
October 20, 2011
Love Springbok. Its the only puzzle I will buy, work. Just wish some of your older ones were available for sale and that there would be more nostalgic or victorian puzzles, with people, dogs, kids, etc.
October 15, 2011
Love your nostalgic puzzles! Have a large Coke collage puzzle hanging in my den, and a 2000 piece "old toys' puzzle over my couch, framed with red barnwood. Soooo many compliments. The only puzzle we just gave up on was the 2000 ? piece ribbon candy puzzle. Every piece looked the same, BUT I am still hanging on to it. Maybe when I retire i will have more time to do it. EVERY puzzle I buy is a Springbok. I want to glue together everyone I work, but reluctantly I have to lovingly fold them away into their boxes. I have them hanging in bedrooms and bathrooms. Finally, I hit the 'enough!' button. Ha.
October 4, 2011
Our family loves Springbok puzzles. We started with the Thanksgiving turkey meal and loved it. Now we have at least 20 Christmas puzzles and at least that many of the others. My next one will be the pumpkin harvest. Thanks so much for the great quality puzzles.
September 25, 2011
There is truly only one puzzle that is worthy and that is springbok! The subject matter is superior! My kids love doing them with me and has teenagers for them to spend more than 15 minutes in a room with me is pretty rare unless there is a puzzle going on. Springbok is the only puzzle for me.
September 15, 2011
Customer service at Springbok is superb! Cheryl went above and beyond the call of duty to assist me so that my order would arrive at the proper destination. We spoke, she promised to call Fed Ex, called me back and gave me the direction I needed. In today's climate of impersonal, "I am not responsible" personnel, Cheryl stands out as responsive. She has made a customer for LIFE!

I love doing jigsaw puzzles and the springbok puzzles are great. I like the designs and especially enjoy the size of the pieces and how they fit together!
August 20, 2011
My 8yr old granddaughter and I just did the Chocolate Sensation puzzle, which said on the box "large pieces for kids" and "little pieces for adults." Maddie did the little pieces and I struggled through the border and other large pieces. I must be getting older! A great puzzle/picture and a wonderful family remembrance!
August 18, 2011
My two grandsons,ages 5 and 7 are still playing with their Dad's Springbok puzzles(We estimate our puzzles are about 35 years old.Tonight I am ordering more.They keep all of us busy.Doing this together is a wonderful way for all of us to spend worthwhile time.
August 17, 2011
Just finished another Springbok puzzle. I love the challenge, the unique way that pieces fit, and the finished product. Now if someone could just learn that in the product warranty card included, the phrase "it's eye-catching colors" is misspelled. (its) As a former English teacher, how do I tell students that it matters how you spell when companies don't do it correctly? *This mistake has been corrected. Thank you Ron! â The Springbok Team
August 3, 2011
Just finished "Yesteryear"; 1000 pc puzzle #1JIG10520. FANTASTIC!! In over 50 yrs of doing jigsaw puzzles,(many of them Springbok), I've never experienced this quality! The many different piece-shapes actually 'snapped' into place! Both Challenging and Rewarding! THANK YOU! KEEP UP THE OUTSTANDING WORK!
July 30, 2011
I really enjoyed putting your puzzel, "The NIght Before Chirstmas" together. The picture turned out beautiful and looks so much like my Christmas village I'm going to have it framed. Guess I'll have to do another one. Thanks, Lori V Romeo, MI
July 29, 2011
I just finished "Packets of Promise". I had ordered online and did not realize it had 2000 pieces (it covered my entire table). It took a couple of weeks and a little help from friends but I now have the finished product. The colors are so vivid. I am planning on using it as a display at our agricultural fair. I love how the pieces all fit together so well.
July 28, 2011
I love the Sprinkbok they are great Right now I am working on the 2000 shoe puzzle thanks for all my enjoyment. Keep up the good work. Ruth from Florida
July 28, 2011
Love doing puzzles and would do any of them until i purchased my first springbok puzzle love love love them now i buy nothing but. well worth the few extra dollars to have hours of enjoyment
July 20, 2011
Have been doing Springbok puzzles for over 20 years. Am a real puzzle snob. Won't waste my time on any brand other than Springbok. I love being able to move a portion I have constructed without it falling apart. I love that you don't have to 'guess' if you have it right. There is simply no other brand that comes close. The are the BEST. I won't do any other kind.
June 24, 2011
Putting puzzles together is a family tradition and in our family Springbok puzzles have been a part of that tradition for about 35 years. Every year at Christmas we would get a new puzzle, and together as a family, we would work that puzzle. When that one was done we would get the previous ones out. Now Springbok is also a part of my family tradition. I've tried other puzzles, but they don't fit together like a Springbok. They aren't made will like a Springbok. When a new game/ puzzle store opened in town, I asked if they carried Springbok puzzles? they didn't at the time but now they do and they are the best puzzles around. Springbok puzzles are one of our Family traditions and they are made in America which makes want to buy even more. Thank you Springbok!

I am so happy that we discovered this brand of puzzles. Since I am in the last month of pregnancy I am not in a very sporty mood right now, so we discovered with my husband that we like making puzzle. First we made one classical, which was boring with many blue, almost the same pieces, and it wasn't really fun. Then we ound this brand with amazing colors and crazy shapes and it is so much fun.
June 6, 2011
Since I am in the last month pregnancy we wanted to find something, that we could do and have fun and is not phisically too demanding. We remembered we used to like making puzzles as kids. We started with a classical puzzle, full of the same blue, same shapes and we didn't enjoy that much. But luckily we discovered your brand with so many colors and crazy shapes. In one month it is already the third puzzle we are working on. The first one was Coup de des - 1000 pcs, the second Bonbons a profusion - 1000pcs and right now we are working on Color of money 2000 pcs. I know we won't work on them in this pace, having a small baby, but I am sure we will make several a year and I hope our store keeps importing them. Thank you for so much fun!!!!
May 18, 2011
Ran out of puzzles - called friend said she just bought "Packets of Promise" and I could borrow it if I wanted. What a great puzzle!! I have been putting puzzles together starting when I was a child with my Grandmother. The pieces were terrific - so unique. I liked the fact that even though the picture was very busy, it was not annoying like when half the picture is sky. Thank you for a great experience. She was lucky to get it back!! Now she knows what to get me for a gift on any occasion!!
May 16, 2011
By chance, I purchased a Springbook puzzle - first time. Once I started, I was riveted and fascinated by the pieces - their shape/design and the brilliant colors. I purchased the fruit and vegetables. My intent is to use it as a resource when teaching about good nutrition. It is an excellent visual.
May 10, 2011
Your puzzles are the only ones I will work. They set the standard for stability and the pictures are always wonderfull. A joy to work them for all of us.
May 9, 2011
In my opinion the Springbok puzzles are the best on the market. I have done many of them (being a puzzle nut), and nothing compares. I just wish they were easier to obtain where I live. We only have one store, and I have done so many it is hard to find a new one. But I keep trying.
May 8, 2011
I love the Sew Sweet, just finished it last night. I'll frame it and put it in my sewing room. The folks I sew for will just love it. Springbok is fun and I think easy to do. My sister does your trains. Just wish you'd have a workout/gym theme of a puzzle.
April 27, 2011
I worked for Hallmark during the 1960's and purchased Springbok puzzles. I kept my favorites and they are in still in excellent condition. I work the seasonal ones each year. I am so glad I found this web site. md
April 21, 2011
I found your website through an AARP article on Alzheimers. My mother is 92 an suffers from dementia so I'm trying to find some activities to help. All I could find locally are 200 or 300 piece puzzles or kid's puzzles which try her patience too much. I can hardly wait to get the 12 and 36 piece puzzles and try them with her.
April 13, 2011
I just completed "Grandma's Kitchen"! It had 1000 delightful pieces and just as it's hard to put down a good book, I found it almost impossible to walk away from the puzzle table! You should know that we are a family of Springbok junkies! At every reunion we bring our newest/latest and sometimes very old puzzles and have a trade day It's not uncommon to have 3-5 puzzles put together in the 3-4 days we're together! We scour tag sales for old and vintage Springboks because they are our favorite - hands down! Thanks for the selection and the quality!
April 9, 2011
Your puzzles are absolutely beautiful and have given us countless hours of entertainment. The puzzles are so pretty we actually take a picture when completed and always look forward to purchasing a new one.
April 7, 2011
I just finished the 2000 piece puzzle titled Fanciful Facades. It was just awesome and a real challange. I am a puzzler that buys nothing but Springbok. Keep up the great work.
March 26, 2011
I love your puzzles. They are very challenging. Once they are finished its all worth it. Once I got older not much to do for entertainment. This filled the void. Thank you.
March 12, 2011
Everyone of the statements I have read say the same things that I wanted to say. Springbok is the best puzzle I have ever used and love to put them together. Thank you Springbok for making my puzzling life more fun.
February 14, 2011
I just purchased the Big Sandwich Puzzle that had a Hershey Bar and Cheetos on it among other things. I loved it. it is a quality product and there was no doubt about the pieces when they fit together. I do not enjoy it when pieces seem to fit but they really don't. I was almost sad when I was finished.
February 8, 2011
I received my puzzle for Christmas from my daughter. I sew quite a bit and the buttons puzzle was perfect. I put puzzles together from time to time but this one is great. It took a few days of spart time but it is beautiful and the pieces are so perfect. It is one of the 1500 piece pictures. When I finished putting it together I actually picked it up by the edge and it stayed together. It was a great gift for a 71 year old mother.
February 5, 2011
Springbok are the best puzzles. They stay together strong enough ( after completion ) to be carried to a different table. Keep up the great work.
January 29, 2011
Puzzles are one of those things that are somewhat nostalgic as I recall doing them as a child with my parents. There's nothing better on a cold winter night, when snow is falling, to lounge around drinking hot chocolate and working on a puzzles. Now as an adult with an adult daughter, I still do puzzles, but I confess I am a puzzle snob! I will only do Sprinkbok puzzles because the pieces are a good size and interlock well so they stay together when you move them. They have vibrant colors and interesting pictures so they are interesting too. Thanks, Springbok for the many years of puzzle fun!
January 21, 2011
Since I received my first Springbok puzzle some 34 years ago I have anxiously wait for Christmas to see what my family chooses for me each year. I have never been disappointed! I have framed several through the years & delight in telling visitors about my very first Springbok puzzle "A Will Power" Oreo's & a glass of milk and the story that was on the back of the box about a little boy that needs a will power. I would LOVE to be able to find that puzzle again! It would be framed & in my family room! Keep up the great work!
January 13, 2011
I have been doing springbok puzzles for 20 some years. They are the only brand of puzzle I will do. They were hard to find recently until I found a vendor on line, I am happy again. My daughter and I just get obsessed with doing them, it is so relaxing. Just keep those great pictures coming. We Do them almost year round except for July it is just too hot then. Thanks for great pieces to work with.
January 10, 2011
Years ago I swore off puzzles and told me family not to buy me any more of them. Well this year 2010 I got one for christmas. It was the Le coin du collectionneur puzzle. Well I was sick so I thought I would put together. I rather enjoyed doing it. But when I got done and saw that I was two pieces short I was rather discouraged. Thanks
January 1, 2011
My husband and I just love puzzles. We purchased our first Springbok and had the best time putting it together. It was a Christmas puzzle and we thought it was very challenging and unique. I would certainly purchase more Springbok puzzles as they are like no other. Thank you!
December 30, 2010
I have been doing Springbok for ever. I LOVE, LOVE them. So very glad they are back. Thank you.
December 29, 2010
What has become a holiday tradition, my sister and I put together a puzzle on both Christmas Eve and New Year's Eve. This Christmas we worked on "Natures Ornament" - what an elegant puzzle when complete. I love the fact that all pieces are differently shaped. Although it makes the puzzle more challenging, it is a very relaxing change of pace from the bustle of the holidays. I do have a 'stock-pile' of puzzles, but I won't give them up any too soon.
December 18, 2010
In my years of enjoying putting together puzzles - I have found Springbok to be the very best. Attempting to put together another brand of puzzles - only makes me appreciate Springbok more. In my eyes Springbok is the only puzzle worth doing. Thanks - keep up the good work.
December 14, 2010
I just love springbok puzzles My son brings me cheapies from thrift stores and I never finish them because they are so awful! I'm so happy to find them on-line because I cannot find them locally
November 20, 2010
This was my first Spingbok puzzle.What a great time my husband and I had putting it together. The colors are the best I've seen. We will certainly buy more Springbok puzzles. Thank you for a good time and a great challenge.
November 18, 2010
I wanted to play with my 10 year old using board games and/or puzzles just to try and get him off his addiction to his Wii game :) and so looked for these items on Amazon.com. The beautifully illustrated works of art seen from Sprinbok caught my eye immediately. The artistry is beyond compare - pictures aren't even this beautiful! The glamour of the puzzle, once I got it home, made me want to work to put it together. Almost everyday I'd work on this puzzle because I loved looking at the vastly differing shapes. I had never known puzzles to be shaped in the way that you at Springbox shape them. That made it even more fun to piece it all together. The finished product is so beautiful that I am planning to frame it. Does anyone know what size frame to get for the 500 pc Canned Veggies puzzle? This puzzle was wonderful recreation and I enjoyed the time that it took to put the puzzle together. I cannot emphasize enough that the beauty of the puzzles produced by Springbok is the first and best reason why I got the puzzle. I am now working on a 1000 pc puzzle and plan to purchase many, many more puzzles from Springbox - in fact, I can't see any reason to buy puzzles from anywhere else. Now, if you ship as fast as your puzzles are beautiful then you've got a customer for life. Great job, Springbok!!! I'm gonna post this also on Amazon.com so that you can get more business that way as well.
November 17, 2010
I have been a long time puzzler, and find that Springbok puzzles are the best! The pieces are well-cut, and sturdy. They fit together perfectly - not questionably. The pictures are gorgeous. My friend recently began doing puzzles (not Springbok)and was pleasantly surprised when she saw the difference in quality from her brand to Springbok. She is now a faithful "Springbok-er!"
November 16, 2010
Thank you Springbok for existing. I have been putting these puzzles together for over 44 years and I'm still at it. My eldest is now 40 and he remembers those days and nights when he was a youngster how we stayed up so very late looking for those last pieces. Lord knows I have glued and framed hundreds and given as gifts. In fact I found one of the childrens Alphabet Fun by Springbok just the other day. Vintage 1978. It's still in tip-top condition missing only 2 pieces. I love the Springbok quality and yes, they are the best puzzles on Earth!
October 31, 2010
Like so many others, I have Springbox puzzles dating back to 1988 when I discovered a passion for these puzzles. Along with my son, we have completed approx. 40 to 50 puzzles together and in doing so, they have created some of my son's best childhood memories....and mine. Now my joy is to share this passion for puzzles with my grandbaby someday soon. Thanks Springbok
October 21, 2010
I have approx. 1,000 Springbok puzzles. I have several of the very first ones made. My Dad built shelves in my puzzle room for me and now I need more room. Springbok puzzles are the very best puzzles, quality is excellent, scenes are beautiful and it is such a surprise to find some of the many different Springbok puzzles that were made, cut-outs, out- lines, shaped pieces etc...You can search the world over but you will never find a puzzle as good as Springbok puzzles.
October 9, 2010
Just found your website - great!! I have been doing Springbok puzzles for years. Last year I bought a 16'x 12' shed to store my over 2000 puzzles. They are the best in the world. I always have one on my puzzle table. It is the best pasttime that I have and I hope it will last for ever.
September 28, 2010
Am looking for an older springbok puzzle - don't know the name but it is probably a 2000 piece puzzle and the picture is one of at least 30 separate doorways - all doorways from countries other than the US. Have searched the web for years and have just gone through 45 pages of Springbok listings on eBay and still can't locate it. Anyone know of one or at least remember the name of the puzzle?
September 6, 2010
With much regret, I just put a 1978 Springbok puzzle "The Puzzler" into the trash. This was the most challenging puzzle my family ever encountered. We hadn't taken it out of the game cabinet for years until this spring when I wanted to let grandchildren give it a try. Somewhere along the years I think one of our children loaned it out to a friend who was less than careful. You can imagine the challenge and dismay, after a summer of off and on endeavors, when we discovered that it is now missing at least 28 pieces! Sad. OK, so I just retrieved it from the trash can to serve as a reminder to search for a replacement whenever I visit an antique store or garage sale.
August 29, 2010
email@example.com I found Springbok puzzles at a yard sale. I bought about 10 puzzles. They range from 500-1500 pieces. These puzzles are the most challenging for me. I love all the different shape and sizes of the pieces. They are definitly to only puzzles I will ever buy. I am glad to find that they are sold at Hallmark locally.
August 19, 2010
I am a mom of 3 young children and secretly can't wait for them to go to bed so I can work on my Springbok puzzle! I am currently working on Sticks of Color which I love! PLEASE, PLEASE, PLEASE bring back the mini puzzles you used to sell in the 70's and 80's. They were often difficult but small and great for travel and as gifts. I still have some left and they are worn out!
July 9, 2010
I am a senior puzzler who has really enjoyed doing all of the puzzles I bought over the years...I have done the a500 and 1000 and 1500 and 2000 and I am an advanced puzzler...when I put them together I have nothing on my mind except the puzzle that I am doing. It helps me to have a good memory. I also do computer games...I love the puzzles that I do..I also hang them on my walls...They are the best puzzles to put together be= because they don't fall apart. They are easy to hang.
June 26, 2010
Does anyone know of a Springbok puzzle club in the USA? I only know of one in the UK. Also, has anyone compiled and is willing to share a complete list of all the puzzles which have been issued since l964?
May 17, 2010
I bought a Springbok jigsaw many years ago and I still have it although the box disintegrated many years ago. I now keep it in a bisquit tin and still do it now and then. There are no jigsaws like them!
May 8, 2010
On a winter's day, I decided to buy a puzzle for those cold days ahead. I took over the dining room table. I now do that as a ritual when winter arrives. One puzzle, a glass of wine, and some relaxation. I love Springbok puzzles. It is the only kind I buy. Once completed, I write the start and completed date in the box.
April 29, 2010
I have loved Springboks since I was a kid in the '70s. I have well over 2,000 of them, probably closer to 3,000 by now. Dating from the late 1960's before Hallmark got involved, to today's 'boks from Allied. I love the funky puzzle piece shapes and variety of sizes. The bigger, the better! I collect ALL 2000, 1500 and 1000 piece 'boks, and most of the 500's and under, as long as I really like the scene being depicted. For me the 500's are too easy - I can get one done in an afternoon easily. Right now I'm working The Old Grist Mill 1500-piece on my good ole' Puzzle Caddy. Not the one that's on the website now, but the old, ORIGINAL one made from cardboard with wood frames and foam to keep the pieces in place when it's closed up. The nice thing about my old Puzzle Caddy is it fits even the 2000 piece puzzles. KEEP ON RELEASING NEW ONES - I WILL ALWAYS BUY THEM!!!
April 22, 2010
My aunt had polio when she was a baby. She has some paralysis and doesn't get around very well. What a delight it is for her to work the Springbok puzzles! She enjoys many hours putting them together every day. We have pictures of each one that she has completed. Thank you Springbok!
April 16, 2010
Hello There I have read all the testimonials and there is not much I can add. Your puzzles are phenomenal. I have a Veterinarian who is horse nutty and each year I did a cross stitch "horse thingy" for her. Since being diagnosed with Rheumatoid Arthritis I find that framing your beautiful puzzles makes a wonderful Christmas gift for Helen.They are increasingly difficult to find here so am hoping you can be of help to me. In the meantime I am looking at all your wonderful Christmas ideas. Keep up the great efforts.... Gerrie in Beckwith Township (near Ottawa) Ontario Canada..
April 11, 2010
Wow!! Reading Springbok testimonials brings back long time memories of my family working and framing Springbok puzzles. Now in my senior years, I find it is a comforting/gratifying hobby. I also rework them when they relate to current holidays. So much fun!!!
April 10, 2010
Springbok is the only puzzle for me. It's what I buy and what I ask for as gifts. I always do a puzzle between Christmas and New Year, starting after the dining room table has been cleared and ending by midnight New Years Eve. Your puzzles are fun and exciting, difficult and enticing, they keep me coming back for more. Thanks for keeping the quality in my American Family Tradition!
March 27, 2010
As far as I am concerned, Springbok is THE only puzzle! It is the best - pieces are easy to put together and the colors and pictures they have are superior to none!
March 25, 2010
I love these puzzles. I have a collection of a few hundred 30 yrs old or older. some I liked so much bought 2 of them lol. Anybody have any idea what the collector value is on these? email me thanks
March 16, 2010
We were raised building puzzles, now we have over 60 years of building.NONE ARE BETTER THAN THE SPRINGBOK BRAND..BEST COLORS-SIZE OF PIECES-STRENGTH SUPERIOR. CHOICE IS UNLIMITED..NOT ONLY HELPS PASS TIME, IT IS SOOTHING AND A PLEASURE TO BUILD. A hobby that is shared with kids and friends... LOVE OUR SPRINGBOKS.
March 1, 2010
Springbok puzzles are the best you can buy. I love working them during the winter months. I've worked others kinds but these are the best.
February 28, 2010
There is nothing like a good Springbok puzzle! Especially the Coca Cola ones! When is a new one coming?
February 13, 2010
I have been working on Springbok puzzles since the 1980s when Mom bought them for me as Christmas presents. I started working them again a few years ago. Friends have given me other brands, but I found them frustrating as they don't stay together well. Yours do. I recently got some jelly roll pans to use to keep pieces on while putting a puzzle together. It works so much better than using boxes and spreading them on the table. In reading all the testimonials, I'm glad other like Springbok as much as I do!
January 30, 2010
I have worked puzzles all my life and started working Springbok puzzles almost exclusively (yes, I am a puzzle snob!) over 30 years ago. I love the design, the interlocking features,and their sturdiness. For years, all I would ask for Christmas was puzzles. I would work them, take them apart, and work them again. What memories! As a kid, I would work the 1500 piece puzzles and hang them on my wall as art. I never glued them together, because I just couldn't bear to not be able to tear it apart and work it again! Thanks for the many years of family fun and for bringing back Springbok!
January 20, 2010
I was given a Springbok puzzle, which was on my wishlist for Christmas that pictured nutcrackers. To my surprise, the puzzle inside the factory sealed box was not of nutcrackers... but a plate of gingerbread men cookies. When I contacted Springbok Mike in Customer Service made every attempt to locate a replacement of this now discontinued puzzle for me. Even though he could not find a replacement, he offered to send me another puzzle of my choosing. Thanks Mike and Springbok, for the quality customer service that is consistant with the high quality of your puzzles!
January 20, 2010
We discovered Springbok puzzles by accident. We mentioned doing puzzles and someone at our church said, I've got a puzzle for you! It was a Coca Cola puzzle-2000 piece. We were hooked. We like the Coca Cola ones the best but they are all wonderful to work on. The quality is by far the best. My husband and I love to work on them together. It's a great pass time for the long winters in Northern Maine.
January 16, 2010
I absolutely love your puzzles and will buy no other brand. I am so proud to support a company in the USA!
December 31, 2009
The ONLY puzzle I'll buy. The rest just don't compare. Thank you for 30 years of fun and excellent, challenging puzzles.
December 31, 2009
We left our beautiful collection of Springbok Puzzles in storage when we moved to China 10 months ago. We didn't realize how much we'd miss them until we bought a puzzle on the street and couldn't even finish it because of the poor quality. Some friends just sent us the new Winter Wonderland puzzle as a Christmas present and we are so excited to get our puzzle "fix"! Thanks for the great family memories.
December 29, 2009
Just looked the site up and wanted to say When my first of three daughters went away to college (some 12 years ago) I was looking for a nice way to spend the Christmas breaks at home inexpensively. Somehow the tradition has been our best. I buy a new Christmas puzzle each year and when my gatherings happen and all the in laws and son in laws and friends and family arrive through out the season we put a puzzle together. I love the uniformity of size and usually do a 1000 piece but last year worked the 2000 piece with the red poinsettias and greenery. But I do not break them apart. I have never worked puzzles till I started with the Christmas puzzles and then when they are together they just are to beautiful.. I tape the backs or glue them with deco podge (this changes the gloss and finish) Then I bind them with a fabric that matches all along the edges. Each Christmas I bring them out of storage (under the bed) and hang them all over the entry, powder room and now the 2000 from last year in my living room over the couch. I guess I have about nine or ten and will this year add three to my collection. They may some day get a frame but now I can hang with straight pins and make no holes. I beleive my kids will fight over this most valued record of the good times we have spent over the years. PS When I have more than I have wall space (I have a large house) I guess the kids will get their inheritance early!!!

My family always had a puzzle going as I grew up, I have continued to do so after marriage. We always do a special one after Christmas. The puzzle is always a Springbok because we find them challenging and of great quality. We always have one in progress and this is for Judy From Tocoma --my husband made a very large board with a rim and felt under the bottom which we place on the dining room table. We move the board to the floor when there are guests [our friends are used to this].The board holds pieces and I use two cookie sheets to hold pieces for the 1500 and 2000 pieces. The board is large enough to hold the puzzles and pieces as work on them. We had tried all sorts of things before but none worked until this.

I love working puzzles and my special treat is to work a Christmas puzzle on Christmas eve with the Christmas music on the radio. This year I did two puzzles- Winter Wonderland and Christmas Eve since I couldn't decide which one to work. And as always, I swear pieces are missing, but you have somehow cleverly crafted the puzzles so that they all fit into place in the long run. Thank you for hours of enjoyment.

We have collected and done Springbok Christmas puzzles as a family for 30 years. It is one of our most treasured Christmas traditions - and we've had hundreds of wonderful conversations around the table working together on our favorites.
December 7, 2009
Hands down, the absolute BEST puzzles! Have been doing them for more than 30 years, and am never disappointed. Always looking for new ones! Thanks for a great puzzle, Springbok!
November 26, 2009
Growing up my family always had a puzzle going and I continued that tradition when I met my husband. Cheap date ya know. One of the first we bought was the MMMMMMM pizza puzzle. We now continue with our daughters who love it as much as we do. We found Sprinkbok again on a recent out of state trip and will never buy another brand.

I have been doing Springbok puzzles since I was a child. Have tried other brands, but always come back to Springboks. I have well over 1,000 - maybe 2,000 by now - 'boks dating back to the 1960's (love those old octagonal and circle ones!), as I started gobbling up the older ones on eBay about 10 years ago. I don't work them as often as I used to, but I still collect them...speaking of which, I have to update my inventory sheet, and I haven't bought any in about a year, so need to know which ones have been released since then! Hint to others: get to know your local Hallmark store manager. What 'boks they don't stock, they can order for you, maybe even with a discount for a bulk purchase! Once they know you're a guaranteed customer, they'll call you when new puzzles are available!

Springbok is the best! I ordered the 2,000 piece Shoes Shoes Shoes just lately. Has anyone solved the problem of a mat? or a mobile board? of some kind to place on a card table in order to accommodate the extra large puzzles? I would appreciate any help you can give.
November 13, 2009
I love Springbok puzzles. In my early twenties I would buy the puzzles all the time. They have a original spark to them. They keep you interested and the variety is great. Just a few months ago our family began doing puzzles during a family gathering, so I am going to make it a tradition to always bring a puzzle to the gathering, and mine will springbok.

My husband John and I enjoy having a puzzle going all winter long. I only want to do Springbok puzzles. We keep our dining room table with both extensions busy plus usually 1 or 2 card tables when we do a 1500 or 2000 piece ones.It's interesting to see how differently we get the job done. We enjoy listening to oldies on the radio while we piece one together.

Growing up in Minnesota our family always had a puzzle in process. My mother only bought Springbok, for good reason. The quality can NOT be beat. Now I live and work in Washington, DC and have recently returned to the habit of always having a puzzle going. In my office at work I have the 1983 "Stars and Stripes Forever" hanging on my wall. Not in a frame, clipped to a SKIRT HANGER! Try THAT with a brand other than Springbok!
October 27, 2009
Does anyone have a puzzle from the 1970s, with mice in party dresses dancing around a giant red mushroom? My twin sister and I loved it until it disintegrated. Feeling very nostalgic for it, wondering if there is any chance of finding a copy, or just seeing a picture of it. Thanks!
October 9, 2009
I search high and low for Springbok. It is the only puzzle I will purchase. I just wish there were more nostaglia or movies to choose from. And more 2000 pieces also. I need a new one now!
August 27, 2009
I bought my first Springbok puzzle when I was about 20 (back in the late 70's) and from that point on, I bought ONLY Springbok. The last thing I knew, there was no more Springbok, but tonight, to my great surprise and joy, I discovered this web site. Love them all, and can't decide which to buy first. Welcome back to my home, Springbok!!!
August 7, 2009
I love the web site. It is so nice to find all the new puzzles in one place, and not run all over town to the Hallmark stores (which seem to never have any). I have been doing springbok puzzles for almost 30 years. I have about 300 puzzles, and buy almost everyone i can find. I wish i could get some of the old ones, that I didn't get when i was younger and couldn't afford them. I do not put any other puzzle brand together. I still buy all of the juvenile puzzles, even though my kids are 25, 24, and 23. someday I will have grandchildren. CAN'T WAIT FOR THE NEXT SET OF NEW PUZZLES.
July 22, 2009
I too, am a puzzle snob to some degree. I mostly work Springbok puzzles, but I have worked other brands. I love to work puzzles and always have one laying out so I can work on it as I get time. I probably have close to 400 puzzles in my garage. I plan to work all of them over again when I retire (I have also donated other brands, not my Springbok) to nursing homes.
July 20, 2009
I also have been working them for tons of years. I love working them with my daughter in law when they come up. I would love to have a springbok club where we could switch puzzles with others. the 2000 shoe one was fabulous.
June 24, 2009
I have been doing Springbok puzzles since forever. It is a tradition that at Christmas there is a Springbok puzzle to do. When discovering this new web site yesterday, I was so happy. What is it about Springbok puzzles? I don't know, but I have a closet full of them.
June 23, 2009
I am a puzzle snob. I only like Springboks. I have a whole collection of them and am always looking to add more. The pictures are great and when you are done you can pick it up and move it from one corner if you want. The pieces stay together. And the pieces themselves are interesting- "no one shape only" like so many other puzzles.
June 18, 2009
I have purchased Springbok puzzles for at least 25 years and they never get old. They are super locking and never fall apart if you move them; have bright colors, smooth edges and are lovely to frame. My children collect them too, as it has become a family tradition. We work certain ones for certain seasons year after year and just keep collecting - I probably have 50 puzzles in all sizes. I hope they never stop making them because they are the best.
June 16, 2009
I have been working Springbok puzzles since I was 10 years old, which is 39 years. I will not work any other brand of puzzle..others do not compare in quality to Springbok. I loved the Grand Master Series and have two of them framed and hanging on my walls. The puzzles are getting harder to find in Hallmark stores so I am very happy to have the web site available. I almost always have a puzzle in process, stored safely in my puzzle caddy. LOVE SPRINGBOK.
June 16, 2009
We have been doing Springbok puzzles as a family for years. Nothing like them that is for sure. Really enjoy doing them. Nothing like them they are the best.
June 15, 2009
To Colleen from California, buy a large foam board from an art supply or office supply store, place on top of your table and work the 1000-1500 pc puzzles on that.
June 15, 2009
Every year around Thanksgiving we set up a card table after purchasing one or two of your Christmas puzzles (1000,1500,2000) pieces and we have the best family time over the weeks leading up to Christmas in lieu of the television, video games, or other distractions working the puzzles - sometimes late into the evenings.
April 30, 2009
I have a tradition of buying a new Springbok Christmas puzzle every year. I must have close to 20 C. puzzles and don't want to give them away...they are the best!!
April 29, 2009
What I love about the puzzles is the larger pieces. I am working on my second puzzle by this company and was very happy when I saw the pieces large enough for me to enjoy.
April 27, 2009
Hi there. To those of you doing 1500 and 2000 piece ones, WHERE are you finding a table to work it on?? I would love to get those, but can't find a card table or what not to do them on...not big enough. Please help:)
April 2, 2009
I have been working your puzzles for almost 40 years and agree that they are the best. Do you ever bring back old puzzles. My favorite was from the early 70's and was called "The Christmas House." I think many of your followers would love it, also.
March 21, 2009
Me and my mom absolutely LOVE Springbok puzzles. My mom is a wheelchair bound invalid and doing puzzles gives her focus and is fun for her as a hobby. So we end up doing them together. As others have said, I have tried other brands but Springbok is the best and my preferred. I have been buying them a few years now for her mainly from Hallmark stores. But as also been mentioned, they are hard to find, especially variety. My local Hallmarks are so-so on the stock. Also, we can't do more than 1000 piece because we cant find a card table big enough. Have any ideas?? My card table will only hold 1000, maybe 1200, but the 1500s dont fit. It would be great if you came out with a card table for the 2000 piece ones, or else make more pretty scenes with the 1000/500 variety. Just found this website and am glad someone suggested it:)
March 11, 2009
Springbok puzzles are the best quality and I prefer them to any other puzzle brand. They are difficult to find in the local stores but worth the search! I do puzzles mostly in the winter from right after Christmas until the Easter holiday (a period when I don't need to use my dining room table!)
January 29, 2009
I have loved your puzzles for years - the only ones I do. However in the past few years they were difficult to find. I used to get them at Hallmark stores. Some have a few left. Are they available elsewhere in this province (Quebec). Tks & keep up the good quality. I think most will agree we don't mind paying a little more to get the quality.
January 25, 2009
I do a lot of puzzles and you have the best quality I have ever seen. They are truly interlocking and so much fun to do and display. Please email me when new ones come out or send me a catalogue they are truely magnificent

As a single mother of two daughters aged 2 and 3 I wanted to create a special tradition for us at Christmas. We started this back in about 1980. The first puzzle we put together was "The Night Before Christmas" by Springbok. We added new puzzles nearly every year. The girls even used to have races to see how long it would take them to put together a 500 piece puzzle titled "The Puzzle of the Arabian Nights". We have tried other manufacturers puzzles but always return to Springbok. I just received "The Color of Money" from my step daughter this Christmas and am looking forward to seeing it finished this winter. We love Springbok!

Your duel sized 'Meilleurs Voeux' family puzzle was an excelent opertunity to bring the elderly and youth to gether at the same table and enjoy building some thing together and learn to respect the interests of both parties. This writer has put puzzles together for some 60 years. We plan to do more puzzles with the grand childern.
December 14, 2008
I have bought my husband a Springbok puzzle for Christmas *nearly* every year that we have been married. One year I bought a puzzle from another (highly regarded) manufacturer and we were sorely disappointed! Only Springbok has those uniquely shaped pieces. He made me promise to go back to buying Springbok, and I did. Long live Springbok!
December 9, 2008
I love the springbok puzzles. There are no others like them. My main problem is finding new ones. I would love it if you would come out with new ones more often. I especially love scenes with houses and towns.
December 8, 2008
My very first springbok puzzle was titled "searchers",this was back in the Philippines, my country of birth and I must say of all the puzzles I've assembled springbok puzzles are second to none!
December 5, 2008
The members of our family are pleased to see some children's puzzles available on your web site, but we would like to see some 48 piece puzzles. Our Huff 'N' Puff is starting to show its age as the grandchildren use it.
November 30, 2008
We always have a puzzle on the table every Thanksgiving and this year put together the Country Cupboard, which was a lovely photo. Hope to see more beautiful autumn and winter scenes from Springbok!
November 23, 2008
I have about 250 of your puzzles collected over the last 50 years. That doesn't count the kids puzzles, about 30. Our whole family loves them, with the exception of one son who waits till we're down to about 150 pieces and then jumps in ! I'm working on the garden vegetable puzzle now. Would love to see some puzzles celebrating Thanksgiving.
November 18, 2008
How excited I was to find out that SpringBok puzzles are avaliable again. As a child (30 yrs ago) we decorated our walls with over 30 SpringBok puzzles that we put together. I can't wait to start on a new one. Thank you!!
November 16, 2008
My husband Kelly and I love to do puzzles. Both of us are educators and can't wait for holidays so we can do our Springbok puzzles. We have framed two of them now and just ordered over $50.00 worth so that we will be ready for Christmas break! We are BIG Springbok fans! :)
October 23, 2008
I am 75 years of age. I really enjoy your puzzles only buy Springbok puzzles. I am working on Color of Money - 2000 pieces. I only purchase 1000 - 2000 piece puzzles. The more difficult the better!
March 3, 2008
I love to work jigsaw puzzles and given a choice, always choose Springbok puzzles. By far they are the best brand in the market today.
January 1, 2008
I have over 400 Springbok puzzles and I will never buy another brand. Yours are the best puzzles made, period!!! Thank you.
December 31, 2007
Just a short note to let you know, your puzzles are the best ones on the market. Great pieces, fit well together and dont move around like other puzzle lines. Superior pictures. Altogether, be proud for a job well done.
December 31, 2007
I have been doing jigsaw puzzles for over 30 years and really enjoy the Springbok brand. I find them intriguing and very challenging. I just completed the latest Coca-Cola one. Thanks for continuing to market these puzzles.
December 12, 2007
I have been buying Springbok puzzles for over 25 years. The quality of Springbok puzzles is definitely superior to any other brands.
December 31, 2005
My teenage daughter and I love doing Springbok puzzles particularly the 2000 piece puzzles. We have done all the Springbok puzzles listed on your website and look forward to new releases. The quality is second to none!
