Toys for Royal children – new stamp issue by Guernsey Post hurries to inform that Guernsey Post is ready to release a series of stamps for Europa stamp competition. The issue consists of six items that was issued and put into circulation on the 1st of May.

The theme for the 2015 Europa stamp issue is 'Old Toys' and when considering how best to portray this subject through a series of stamps, Guernsey Post decided to focus on toys of the British Royal Family.

The origin of toys dates back to prehistoric times, in fact dolls representing infants, animals, and soldiers, as well as copies of tools used by adults are often found at archaeological sites.

Working with talented illustrator Robin Carter, Guernsey Post representatives have produced a beautiful stamp series featuring some much-loved toys of Royal children through the decades.
