Win Vancouver and Whistler Puzzles and Placemats from Butzi Kids

Comments 58 by Rebecca Bollwitt

Butzi-VancouverNicole Benda is a local mom who wanted to find a puzzle for her son that featured Vancouver (where they live) and Whistler (where they ski as a family), but she had a hard time locating anything.

“As hard as I looked, though, I couldn’t find anything that came close to what I wanted. So I decided to make my own.” That’s how Butzi Kids was born, and for the last couple of years Nicole has been selling puzzles and placemats in local retail stores in Vancouver, Whistler, and through her online shop.

Vancouver and Whistler Puzzles & Placemats

The puzzle artwork is by Andy Eccleshall, a friend of the family, and each features recognizable attractions in Vancouver and Whistler — like Science World and Vancouver Aquarium, along with the Peak 2 Peak Gondola and snowboarders.
