He's 7, and is quite taken by stamps.
He's written several letters (I'll give you an example in a minute), and I wondered if there might be some MNers in foreign parts who might help him smile

Here is one of his letters ( in very best joined-up writingsmile)

Dear Jamaica

If I writ you a letter, please will you send me one back, so I can see your stamps.
I am from England (Great Britan)
Good luck in the Olympics
Love from Allyouneed Junior.

There are similar letters for several countries, and his plan is to put them in an envelope with the country name on the outside, and several stamps.

Would anyone be able to send him a letter with a stamp on?
Thank you. He would be the happiest boy in the world!

This is absolutely adorable smile

I've just checked some old postcards and have found stamps from Cambodia, USA and France if these are any good? I suspect I've got ones from Thailand, Laos, Vietnam and Singapore knocking about... will have a hunt!

I'm going to Zante in July so I can send a post card from there if you want?

AllYouNeedIsAClickyBallpoint Tue 12-Jun-12 21:43:44

Wow!
I am completely overwhelmed grin
I thought I'd maybe get a couple of replies, if I was lucky, and I'm inundated with lovely MNers smile

Ds is going to love this! He is very bright ( ahem, aren't they all on here?), and so interested in everything going on in the world. It wouldn't surprise me if he ends up the next Bear Grylls!
Once he knows how all you MNers have rallied round, he'll be trying to persuade me to start a thread asking for donkeys hmm grin

Thank you all so much thanks

You've just reminded me that my dd used to have a real,THING about post cards! She was terrified and upset by them, they weren't letters they were word cards and "I don't liiiiiiiiiiike them"

I had to ask people to please not send them (we used to get loads lol) as she would freak out (real tears! Weird child)

We are in Belgium. I have an 8 yo dd - she would love to write him a letter. PM me too....

AllYouNeedIsAClickyBallpoint Tue 12-Jun-12 22:05:31

I'll be in Ireland at the end of July, I can send you a postcard. PM me and let me know what kind of thing I should send smile

BikingViking Tue 12-Jun-12 22:40:42

I'm in Denmark - if you PM your address, I'll get 6 year old dd to write him a letter smile

QOD Tue 12-Jun-12 22:43:02

Yeah she's 13 now, and mostly just a crabby teen!!

She does have some sensitive child traits still, but she was just so funny about it, if it wasn't in an envelope it really upset her!

trumpton Tue 12-Jun-12 22:46:53

Pm me and I will send a manx stamp on a post card . Bless him .

weirdscience Tue 12-Jun-12 22:48:43

I think I have some stamps from poland and the czech republic (I always buy postcards and then never send them blush) I'll check tomorrow if I can find them and PM you if I do.

I'm also going to spain in a few weeks if you would like a postcard or letter sent.

sagenod Tue 12-Jun-12 23:01:36

Aaaww! I'm sure France has already been taken, but if not my DS1 is always upset not to get any letters in the post box and it would make his day! Feel free to PM

trinitybleu Tue 12-Jun-12 23:46:11

I have a friend in Sweden with kids that age, if no one else has got that covered??

AdoraBell Wed 13-Jun-12 02:37:35

I'll see what I can do, next week though as DDs were diagnosed with flu today so we're housebound for a few dayssad We're in Chile.

I can send some from Australia if your son would like. I have a nearly seven yr old ds who is in denial about his writing if he'd like a penfriend from here too!
