SINGAPORE - Kittens, puppies and bear cubs are among baby animals that feature on a new series of stamps that have been released by the Singapore Post (SingPost).
Available from Wednesday (June 28), the Baby Animals stamp set hopes to encourage positive social values among children.
One design, featuring a kitten hugging a puppy, demonstrates how people should appreciate and love one another, despite their differences, while a second of a duckling giving a flower to another duckling calls for kindness and graciousness.
The set comes in four denominations: 1st local, 70¢, 90¢ and $1.30. Pre-cancelled First Day Covers are available with purchase of the complete set of stamps ($4.15).
In March, SingPost released a set of stamps to commemorate the 50th anniversary of national service. Those featured founding prime minister Lee Kuan Yew and former defence minister Goh Keng Swee.
The stamps are on sale at all post offices and the Singapore Philatelic Museum, or can be purchased online at www.stampdelight.com
