Celebrating 100 years of toys with Royal Mail
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.
