All post across Ireland will be stamped with Toy Show Adam's virtual hug

An Post wants to help Adam share his virtual hug across the world.

A SPECIAL CHRISTMAS postmark, inspired by Toy Show Adam King’s virtual hug, is being applied to stamped mail across Ireland from tomorrow. 

The 6-year-old appeared on last month’s Late Late Toy Show where he talked about his love of space and his ambition to work for NASA, before introducing everyone to his handmade virtual hug.  

An Post transformed Adam’s drawing into a postmark which will be applied to millions of stamped cards and letters during the sorting process from tomorrow onwards.

Richard Miley of An Post Mails and Parcels said they wanted to help Adam share his virtual hug across the world by transforming it into a postmark after he “stole the hearts of the nation”.

“We’re big fans of Adam and his virtual hug,” said Miley.

As we all send love this Christmas, this special hug on every envelope keeps us all connected, even if we can’t hug in person this year.
