  1. very nice topic! fairytales by default have vivid and eye-catching illustrations. hard to choose a favourite one, but I'll go for the czech republic one, its very cute and reminiscent of childhood when such cartoons were very popular in then yugoslavia

    1. I like that they are different kind of dragons. Maybe the water one is my favourite, if I must choose.

    2. Fortunately, yes, I knew them, thanks to FinnBadger. And the (pixie) Snail I knew thanks to John :-)

      And this particular Dopey and Snowwhite I knew from my childhood: the very first long animation movie I ever saw (until then I had seen only short animation movies on tv)

    3. The very first long animation movie I ever saw (at the cinema) was 101 Dalmatians :)

  5. What a great assortment! It's such a pleasure looking at each and every stamp. Although, I must say, the stamp from Czech Republic looks super adorable for me.

  7. So far I think I've only seen the Royal Mail stamps and the USPS one...all colourful and beautiful, but the Czech one is my favourite - it is just so adorable, and yet so simple! Love it!
