Ponda Jigsaw Puzzle from England - The Mad Tea Party

I don't know about you, but this looks to be identical to the Mad Tea Party puzzle from yesterday but it is, in fact, made by an entirely different manufacturer - Ponda Puzzle Products Ltd, St. Leonard's-on-Sea, Sussex.
Closer inspection of the puzzle itself shows that it is a different puzzle, just using the same art, although cropped slightly differently.  The jig for the puzzle is entirely different though.
This puzzle appears to be part of a set (D2) from Ponda, which includes at least two more puzzles (3 Caballeros and Pinocchio), but it is unclear from when or how many.
There is an excellent jigsaw puzzle site called Jigsaurus that has pictures of all three Ponda puzzles in the D2 set, plus TONS of other English jigsaw puzzles from a variety of manufacturers.

We've seen Ponda puzzles here on the blog before, a little Alice puzzle posted back in 2010.
