Stamp of approval?

I had a brief spell as a philatelist in my early teenage years. My small collection is now lost, although it is really no great loss. I am just not fanatical enough about small pieces of perforated paper. However, today twenty-six identical stamps (pictured) caught my attention. Perhaps it was something to do with the hilarious crib scene. I confess this is the first time I’ve seen baby Jesus in the manger with a koala and a kangaroo! It was also because they betrayed the origin of this seemingly unopened box, part of a consignment of humanitarian aid picked up this morning. Australia! I won’t pretend to understand how or why we ended up unpacking hand-knitted hats and gloves (amongst other things) sent from the Antipodes for Balkan babies.
