It is a Brexit thing. UK companies can no longer use the CE mark, hence the UKCA mark. So a slip of paper needs to be included if the product is likely to get sold in the UK.

"The UKCA (UK Conformity Assessed) marking is a new UK product marking that is used for goods being placed on the market in Great Britain (England, Wales and Scotland). It covers most goods which previously required the CE marking." www.gov.uk

If you wonder why the Northern Ireland part of the UK is not included, you have found the crux of why Brexit took so long to bring about. That and fish.  8}

Speaking of fish, along with the Stargazer there is a new Eskimo set in that specials series, with several fish in it!  :confetti:

Playmobil should take note; by posting pictures of his birthday present, StJohn has increased sales of this item by at least 6!

A late Happy Birthday from me  :wave:
Lovely set, it's a must-have. I'll buy it as soon as I can, it's on my wish-list since I saw it on the catalogue. I wish they would do more of those...
Thanks for the pics!  :love:
