Sunday Stamps 026: Pheepoy, the lovable PhilPost mascot


I'm making up this week for the missed theme two weeks ago. I think I stretched the theme (streetcars/public transport) a teeny-bit once again. I hope I don't get in trouble with Viridian, the host of Sunday Stamps :) Here it is:

Friends, meet Pheepoy, the lovable mascot of the Philippine Postal Corporation.
I love Pheepoy the mascot, he is cute! Don't you? Here he's seen with the mail track. Other 2010 issues with Pheepoy on them include (refer to the photo below):

Postmaster General Hector R.R. Villanueva said that Pheepoy personifies an honest and dedicated postman, whose primary goal is to deliver the mails rain or shine anywhere in the country and around the world, to the satisfaction of the mailing public.

“The mascot is also a way of reaching out to kids and families that letter writing is the best tool to communicate and interact in the light of modern technology,” Villanueva added.

Representing the more than 13,000 postal employees in the country, “Pheepoy,” personifies an honest, ever dependable and dedicated postmen. His outgoing spirit, high energy and passion also represent the ideal qualities of every PhilPost employee.

Kids (and kids at heart) can visit to check Pheepoy’s character profiles and activities. -

In these days when most of our post is bills and junk mail it's good to see someone encouraging communication by writing.

Yes I'd like him to deliver my mail. What a great idea, and sentiment from the postmaster. Hurray for those who deliver our post.

I especially like stamps with postal themes. We need a mascot like that here.
