Our Story

Founder Carol has for a long time had an interest in child development. Star Apple was born when she struggled to find a jigsaw puzzle for her infant son and granddaughter that represented their culture and looked beautiful. 

Our mission

We aim to promote and celebrate Black culture, and support unknown artists around the globe.

We showcase their craft and at the same time we encourage learning through play. 

In this digital world, we want to create a space for parents to connect, engage and have fun with their children.

  • Core Values

    My mother used to say ‘it doesn’t cost anything to be nice’.

    That’s the Star Apple way. Products with care. Service with integrity.

  • Charity and Community

    Our vision is to create an ethical and social business that gives back to the community, as well as collaborate with partners with similar values.

    You can be rest assured your purchase will be matched and a jigsaw will be given away to a project that’s doing great work with children from under-privileged backgrounds.

  • The Environment

    Our puzzles are made of eco-friendly non-toxic material, which are also sturdy and durable.  And they are manufacturered in the UK.

    All our puzzles come sealed in a clear micro perforated polybag inside the box. The bag is 100% recyclable.
