Waddington’s Limited Edition Christmas Puzzles

Waddington’s, a UK brand, was one of the first to do Limited Edition Christmas Puzzles.  They became collector’s items and proved to be so popular that now many puzzle brands do a limited edition Christmas puzzle of their own.  Waddington’s stopped producing puzzles for a few years, but fortunately their Christmas puzzles were picked up and restarted by another company.  This page lists all the Christmas puzzles that I’m aware of.  The new ones can be purchased from Amazon.co.uk and shipped worldwide.  The older ones can be hard to find.  Ebay is your best bet.

  1. I’ve purchased these very Xmas since they started for my mum. Unfortunately she passed away before she managed to start the last one so I’ll complete it in her memory. Now I have the arduous task of selling her puzzle collection on 😦

  2. I have 10 out of the 12 days of Xmas Ltd edition and 1brand new Waddington puzzle Ltd edition Xmas puzzle. That I am selling no pieces missing and boxes in good condition if anyone is interested in buying these from me

  3. I bought Nearly Christmas at a local estate sale. Can anyone tell me something about the solution to the “game element” which is missing from the box? Many thanks

  4. I have just brought the Cinderella Christmas Jigsaw complete with ticket and certificate! From Facebook Marketplace, I look forward to family evenings finding the glass slippers!
