To celebrate iconic British toys from the last 100 years, Action Man, Meccano and Hornby trains are among the classics featured on new stamps from Royal Mail. A Royal Mail spokesman said: “British toymakers enjoyed a reputation for quality and innovation, and these nostalgic stamps celebrate 10 wonderful toys that have endured through the decades". Spirograph, Stickle Bricks, W Britain toy figures, Fuzzy-Felt, Sindy Doll and Space Hoppers have also been honoured with a stamp. The stamps are available now from the British Post office or from Royal Mail's website.
