Review – Jumbo Portapuzzle Standard Board for 1000 Pieces
Puzzle boards are a fantastic accessory to help you keep your unfinished jigsaw puzzle safe. You can puzzle directly on the board and close the board over and put it away keeping your home tidy and your puzzle safe.
The Puzzle Mates Portapuzzle puzzle board by Jumbo holds most puzzles up to 1000 pieces (measuring approximately 68 x 49 cm). The board has a felt lining which holds your puzzle pieces in place. The board comes with two additional boards (53 x 39 cm each approximately) which you can use to organise your puzzle pieces on.
When fully opened on a flat surface the board measures 165 x 58 x 3 cm (approximately). The board fastens with a nylon strip and can be put away with your puzzle inside ready for when you want to continue.
The board is also available in a larger size to hold most puzzles up to 1500 pieces. When the board is closed it measures 91 x 65 x 3cm (approximately) and when fully opened on a flat surface measures 165 x 58 x 3cm (approximately). The two additional puzzle boards measure 53 x 39cm (approximately).
Watch our full review below
- Cheaper than a lot of puzzle boards that are available.
- Puzzle pieces stick well to the board’s lining. When the board is closed and turned to a vertical position our puzzle stayed in place.
- Board comes with two extra removable side panels that you can position your pieces on.
- Easy to store your unfinished puzzle (can be placed behind a sofa or bookcase).
- The board is only suitable for use on a flat surface but it is lightweight and low-priced compared to many boards on the market.
- The lining is fairly padded which can make it difficult to be sure if a piece fits correctly compared to puzzling on a hard flat surface.
- Some external customer reviews have noted that the boards lining has been a bit ‘baggy’ when they received the puzzle. Overall external customer reviews are positive.
