Modern designs and updated contents make the new stamp collecting starter kits from Stanley Gibbons a must-have educational tool.
With Stamp Active reaching their 1000th member earlier this year and the ABPS School Starter Pack initiative going strong, Stanley Gibbons have revamped their stamp collecting starter kits to encourage a new generation to examine the world in which they live through the interactive medium of stamps.
In the words of America’s President Roosevelt:
“Stamp Collecting dispels boredom, enlarges our vision, broadens our knowledge, makes us better citizens and in innumerable ways, enriches our lives.”
Stamps are the perfect medium to engage children on a wealth of subjects from learning about geography and history to socio-political issues to the development of technology; stamps can also provide numerous subjects for art and design projects.
From the birth of Pokémon in 1996 to the 2011 relaunch of the 80’s classic ‘Thundercats’ last month, Japanese anime or ‘Manga’ has proved increasingly popular with young people and these new starter kits from Stanley Gibbons with ‘Manga’ styled graphic packaging and multiple educational applications should prove popular with both children and parents alike.
