Fabeltjeskrant Dutch childrens jigsaw puzzle
Heres a lovely find, from last year. The characters remind me of Fredun Shapurs fantastic Playsacks, and the trees look like something out of Serge Danots Magic Roundabout.
This fifty piece puzzle comes with no makers mark, or box. So I have no idea whats on show! Its certainly not anything I remember from my youth. Theres one small clue in the right hand corner, where the owl holds a copy of the Daily Fable. As usual, any additional information would be much appreciated.

Fantastic! Ellen over at Turning pages has just got in touch and told me all about the Puzzle. The characters come from a Dutch TV Show "Fabeltjeskrant", which appears to have translated as The Daily Fable. Theres an excellent website full of facts about the series as well as a couple of episodes dubbed into English.
Ellen is a designer over in Holland, and her blog is well worth a visit! She has some lovely items listed which include a couple of lovely postcards of some of the Fabeltjeskrant characters.
