Stamp Active has launched their latest STAMP FUN activity book on the subject of Animals. The new 16 page booklet contains quizzes, pages to assemble stamps from around the world, a word search and much more. The new booklet follows on from Stamp Active’s other popular STAMP FUN activity books which have also included “Sport on Stamps” and “All at Sea” and “Brilliant Britain”. These can all be downloaded from the Stamp Active website. Commenting on the launch, Chairman, John Davies said “We are delighted that our Sponsors and Dealer Patrons continue to support us to enable Stamp Active to publish these popular introductions to our hobby. We are particularly grateful for generous support from The Oxford Philatelic Society and The Philatelic Fund“.

The activity book will be available at Autumn Stampex and is given out free to young collectors.  Stamp Active will, once again, have a “Kids Zone” at this popular twice-yearly national Stamp Show. Held at the Design Centre, Islington, from 14th to 17th September 2016, the Kids Zone will provide free activities and goodie bag. There will also be the free kids auction on Saturday at 2pm where young collectors can use the points they win from completing the activities to bid for exciting prizes. The theme of the activities will be “SPORT”. At the end of the auction, all the kids taking part will be entered into a free prize draw for a Penny Black. Any adult who brings a child to Stampex will also be entered into a free prize draw.
