When Anja and Rita visited Jan they got the confirmation, that a small Rick de Kikker puzzle has been drawn by him. It is a wooden puzzle with 20 pieces, produced by Pim Kwin in about 1967

Last year (in 2011) Holdson has published an anniversary pack for only the New Zealand market. The pack contained 3 puzzles among which a Jan van Haasteren: Circus Time.


In 1975 apart from the series of six Popeye puzzles with 63 pieces King came out with 2 floor puzzles. Jan van Haasteren has made the images for posters, but without his knowledge King made two puzzles out of it, each with 16 large pieces.

From two fans who visited Jan van Haasteren (Anja en Rita - gekvanjvh) we heard the news, that in Japan his puzzles were already being produced as early as 1982.

On the page "all puzzles - by size - small" five old puzzles have been added; 3 puzzlecards from Bolletje Dutch rusk (10 pieces), an advertisement puzzle from Amsterdam Airport Schiphol (200 pieces) an the original advertisement puzzle from DPD post (378 pieces)
