One-of-a-kind jigsaws for one-of-a-kind children

About me

Bespoke personalised jigsaw puzzles that are beautifully designed and beautifully made. Unique whimsy pieces spell out the child's name.

I’m Becky, and I am the creator of Rumpuspuss. I make beautifully illustrated personalised jigsaws for children where their name helps to solve the puzzle. I live in Bristol with my husband, 2 children and 3 cats. I’m originally a Lancashire lass but have been in Bristol for 15 years.

Rumpuspuss came about after I discovered that my eldest child, then aged 3, delighted in finding anything with his name on. He also loved jigsaws. After spending many hours of my maternity leave cutting his name out of paper from the recycling pile and making our own jigsaws, I had the beginnings of an idea.

I went back to the job that I had been in for 13 years and realised that it was no longer for me. I was an epidemiologist, working in cancer research. My research had hit a brick wall, and I realised that I no longer had the love for the job that is needed.

I desperately wanted to give “the jigsaw idea” a go, so I handed in my notice to see if I could make it into a business.

How I make my puzzles

Handmade on demand in Bristol, UK. By me.

I have spent 3 years perfecting my puzzle making technique. Once I receive an order I print it onto wooden jigsaw board at my home in Bristol. I then laser cut each piece, including the letters, and clean them by hand. I check that the jigsaw meets my standards, then I pack it into the cotton drawstring bag, wrap it and post it.

Each jigsaw is bespoke and handmade. Every one comes in a raw cotton drawstring bag with a gift tag showing the child's initial. These make excellent bookmarks once the present has been given.

Rumpuspuss jigsaws are CE marked and have been tested by a specialist laboratory to ensure that they meet the UK toy safety standards.

Reviews

  • "I bought it intending to save it for his 3rd birthday but he found it and really loves it. He does it at least twice a day. He loves the letters and carries the ‘S for Sam’ around with him for hours haha!"

  • "We bought a Rumpusspuss puzzle for my son's second birthday - he absolutely loved it. He can't quite put it together yet but his older sister loves doing it for him and he follows along. I love that it is personalised with his name. The illustrations are adorable and you can tell it's great quality and will last a long time. It came absolutely beautifully packaged and would be a fab present."

  • "Thank you so much for the gorgeous Rumpuspuss jigsaw. Our niece was absolutely delighted with it. It was a really special keepsake present for her christening, especially as she has 2 older siblings so very few toys all of her own! Will be ordering another for our daughter soon!"
