A new series of special-edition Royal Mail Stamps are being launched in the UK, celebrating 100 years of toys made in the UK.

The 10-piece collectible stamp set, officially called the Classic Toys Special Stamps, includes tous like Sindy, Action Man and the plush mohair Merrythought bear, as well as brands like Spirograph and Stickle Bricks. Some of the ways that these stamps may be collected include purchasing them as part of the Presentation Pack or framed.

As Philip Parker of the Royal Mail says: "British toymakers enjoyed a reputation for quality and innovation. These nostalgic stamps celebrate 10 wonderful toys that have endured through the decades." Many of the toys still captivate and inspire both youth and kids at heart to this day, making for a stamp collection that has appeal to people of all ages.
