Postal service gives Lego the stamp of success

Post Danmark chooses the blocks from Billund for toy-themed Europa stamps

The national postal service Post Danmark today released two new stamps depicting Lego blocks and figurines as its 2015 contribution to the Europa stamp series.

This year’s Europe-wide theme for the Europa series, a co-operation program between the European postal services, is toys.

International success
Martin Pingel, the head of design at Post Danmark, said in a press release that it was therefore not difficult to choose the motif for the Danish stamps. “When it comes to toys, you don’t find anything bigger or more popular than Lego bricks,” he said.

“They are in every way an international success story that we are proud to be able to make part of the Danish stamp universe.”

The stamps are available in 10 kroner and 14.50 kroner values and can be purchased at post offices from today until 31 December 2015.
