The food they ate, books they read and especially the games they played always feature in their memories.
The stamps portray a series of common games played by children from North China in the 1980s. The designer intended to remind people of their childhood and games they once fancied such as rolling an iron ring, throwing bean bags and kicking the shuttlecock.
Children grow up with games. The games of different times record the unique vitality and spirit of that era, and are also unforgettable memories of moving through life. The content, type and play of children’s games are influenced by social history, geography, customs and ethics. Careful study will find their rich connotations.
The stamps show six popular folk children’s games in China, including iron hoop rolling, leap frog, throwing sandbags, the swing, shuttlecock kicking and hopscotch. Wonderful pictures of the games make people regain their childhood memories and recall that golden time.
