This Special issue of 10 stamps beautifully captures classic toys that encouraged creativity and inspired millions of young minds. And they are still enthralling children to this day."

The ten toys referenced by the collection include Stickle Bricks, Fuzzy-Felt, the Merrythought Bear, Action Man, Meccano, Space Hoppers, William Britain Jr., Hornby Dublo Electric Train, Spirograph and the Sindy Weekender Doll.
