1960's Sweet Memories

1960’s Sweet Memories Travel back in time to the golden era of all things sweet! During the Swinging Sixties, a new era of sophistication was heralded with After Eight thin mints and then Matchmakers chocolate sticks in orange, coffee and peppermint flavours. There was a growing appetite for peppermint with chocolate, including the new Rowntree’s Cracknel. Other new brands on the sweet counter included Jelly Tots, Tooty Frooties, Toffee Crisp, Skippy, Aztec, Galaxy Counters and Marathon (becoming Snickers in 1989). Perhaps the most notable of boxed assortments in the 1960s was Lucky Numbers in its funky box, but most people remained loyal to familiar names like Milk Tray (since 1916), Dairy Box and Roses (both 1938). This is a 500 piece jigsaw puzzle that is presented in a beautifully designed rectangular tin.Finished size: Approx. 48 cm x 34 cm / 19 in x 13.5 inImage: © Robert Opie Collection

The first thing you see when you look at a puzzle is the photo or illustration of the finished puzzle. When choosing, keep in mind that the image must have an educational value, but also something that the child can identify with. If the image is familiar to the child or meets the educational purpose (such as learning colors or name objects), the experience of completing the puzzle will be more enjoyable, satisfying and productive. The image must be easily recognizable so that the child can recognize it as something that they see around them in their daily lives. It must also distinguish functions to help them decide where to place the piece so that it is placed in the right place
