You can't mail that

Be aware that many countries have rules about what can be sent by mail.

While most aim to keep out dangerous goods, some appear to have no purpose at all. Several countries ban toys and one even prohibits Christmas cards with musical chimes.

Other examples include Afghanistan which bans the importation of fountain pens, playing cards, sunglasses, and women's handbags. Britain stops horror comics from entering the country. Nicaragua does not allow police whistles and Paraguay says no to calendars.
