Combo Lego and stamp show in Geleen, Netherlands
Philatelic Foreword by Jay Bigalke
I previously have written about how to creatively connect toys with philately, namely with Lego building bricks. A handful of countries have issued stamps showing the popular toy, and I have a small collection of the ones issued so far.
An article in the July bulletin of the Royal Dutch Association of Philatelic Societies (KNPF) reported that a stamp group in the Netherlands is partnering with a regional community of Lego enthusiasts to host BricksPhil 2021.
This event featuring both stamp and Lego displays will take place Sept. 25-26 in Geleen, a city in the province of Limburg in the Netherlands. The sponsoring groups are De Philatelist Geleen and Dutchbricks.
The stamp club even created four personalized postage stamps showing Lego items and two postmarks for the show.
I think the joint concept of BricksPhil 2021 should work well. Lots of families attend fan-held Lego events around the world, and it could provide that little spark for attendees to get interested in something new to collect.
