I found stamps from several countries that met the theme this week.
|Dubai - Children's Day - 1968|
And the Year of the Child:
|Ecuador - 1979|
For toys I found a Teddy Bear
|Sweden - 1978|
And then one of my daughter's favourite bears all the way from Peru.
|Great Britain - Paddington, 10 Jan 2006|
"More About Paddington" by Michael Bond with Peggy Fortnum's illustrations was first published in 1959.
These four stamps were what I originally meant to post until I found this presentation pack of mint stamps on my favourite market stall.
|Great Britain - 16 May 1989|
The stamps depict from left to right;
- 19p - Toy aeroplane and train
- 27p - Building bricks
- 32p - Board games
- 35p - Toys
The information card is a gem in itself covering the history of toys. The pack also contained a second set of the stamps and a Stamp Card for each one, like this;
|Royal Mail Stamp Postcard|
