Camberwick Green is a UK stop motion animation show for children that first aired on BBC1 in 1966.

Today’s toy spotlight features a 64 piece double-sided ‘jigbit’ set made by Kiddicraft in 1977. This slot-together jigsaw puzzle features characters such as Windy Miller, Mrs Honeyman and her baby, PC McGarry, Dr Mopp and Packet the dog among other well-known characters from the show. Each brightly-coloured cardboard piece assembles together to create 3D miniature standees. This is a wonderful and charming little set that has held up very nicely conditionwise since its release in 1977.
