Return of the Jedi Jigsaw Puzzle (NZ, 1983)

Excited to receive this 1983 Return of the Jedi jigsaw puzzle in the post last week, generously donated by a friend clearing out their collection. It completes my set of three in a series of ROTJ puzzles, made in New Zealand under the the Creative Crafts brand, which was a General Mills company that had a relationship to Toltoys NZ back in the late ’70s and early ’80s.

It’s a simple puzzle, very similar to Return of the Jedi jigsaws released overseas, but I’m a sucker for vintage collectibles that were made locally, and denote their country of manufacture on their packaging, even if they were just kiwi versions of international/US products.
