Introduce The Smurfs To Your Children! #Giveaway #Ad

*This post was written by me on behalf of JAKKS Pacific.  I received complimentary product samples to facilitate this review.  All opinions are 100% mine.

    When I was a little girl, I loved watching The Smurfs on television and playing with their animated figures.  As a matter of fact, I can even remember my grandfather buying a Smurfs comic book for me to read on the airplane when I traveled to the United States from Spain at eight years old.  These delightful little people hold a very important place in my childhood.

    As a parent, I really enjoy sharing all of the cartoons and toys from my childhood with my own two sons.  It’s amazing to see them enjoying themselves as much as I did when I was a kid.  This summer, The Smurfs have made their way back into the big screen!  To celebrate the film’s recent release, JAKKS Pacific has introduced a new lineup of collectible Smurfs figures and plush toys.

    We love being able to collect our favorite Smurfs characters from The Smurfs 2 movie!  Their new movie figures allow you to recreate your favorite scenes from the film and come in 24 different figures.  My seven year-old loved being able to pretend play with his Movie Figure 2 pack containing Smurfette and Clumsy.

    As an educator, I realize how important allowing him to use his imagination when he plays with toys is to his development.  That is why I also loved watching him play with the detailed The Smurfs Bean Bag Plush dolls.  They are cuddly and soft and he carries them with him in the car when we are out and about.  They are the perfect size to pack in his backpack and take with us on road trips.

    I’m really enjoying watching my son playing with his Smurfs toys because it brings me back to the great times I had with the Smurfs when I was a child.  The entire Smurfs 2 line of collectible figures and plush toys is available now at retailers nationwide.  Don’t miss out on sharing this animated classic with your own children, especially now that the holidays are coming!

    Hahaha! My late Husband’s name…my former name…my son’s name is Murph. Not the Irish, “Murphy,” but the German, “Murph.” If I just had a nickle for every time I heard “Murph the Smurf”… 🙂
    The good thing is that my son always thought it was funny.

    Yo me acuerdo de tener a un muñeco y tenía música y se tapaba los ojos.

    Saturday morning with the Smurfs were some of the best childhood memories that I have. I could watch the show and travel to that magical place with them. It was one of the rare cartoons that I was allowed to watch. I remember that my Grandmother and Grandfather used to decorate their tiny Christmas tree with Smurf ornaments. They even had the glasses and some of the action figures as well. As an adult I still love the Smurfs and I am happy to say that my kids enjoy them as well. 🙂

  4. Terry My Journey With Candida says:

    My Daughter loved the Smurfs when she was little. They sure have been around a really long time. Love the plush smurfs, I don’t know if they had the plush when my Daughter was young. I do remember her having a record of them.

  5. GrandmaBonnie A says:

    Oh wow, That does bring back memories. I watched the Smurfs with my children. They each had a favorite character. I remember my daughter complaining that there was only one girl Smurf and that was not fair to her. I reminded her she was my only daughter in a house full of boys so that was how life was. I am glad to see the Smurfs making a come back. They are a good clean cartoon for my grandchildren to watch.

  6. Couldn’t wait to watch the Smurfs on weekends w/ sister we had dolls and pillowcase.Now my son loves them his favorite Papa Smurfs though he calls him Pop Pop after his Pop Pop lol I glad they are back

  7. I was not able to see Smurf as a child but my child does like it so now I get to see it in a different perspective and enjoy it!

  8. Stacey Gannett says:

    I loved the Smurfs! I remember having a whole collection of the little figurines that I would organize into my own little community! They were amazing! I am thrilled that both of my two youngest, of course lil miss mostly, will watch the DVD’s that I bought for them. She even has a couple of the little playsets that she plays with! What an awesome opportunity!

  9. Olivia De Hamilton says:

    I grew up watching the smurfs in the mornings. My brother and i would lay on my grandmas living room and just giggle. Good memories. Thank you!

  10. MalikaBourne says:

    Do you remember how the girl Smurf came into being?

  11. I remember collecting the Smurfs in every color. But didn’t they have long hair sticking up in the air? My brotheres and I had a collection and would sit and play with them! MEMORIES!!!

  12. Dawn Spatulas On Parade says:

    All things come back around. Toys and fashion. And I agree, imagination is very important.

  13. Daisy Tremorev says:

    I used to love waking up on Saturday mornings and love watching the Smurfs. I wanted to be Smurfette. 🙂 My son loves the Smurfs too now.

  14. I loved Saturday morning Smurfs when I was a kid. Sometime in my 20’s I found a 4 ft. tall stuffed Smurf that my sister and I started hiding in random places to surprise people. She hid it in my luggage on the way to Alaska and I drove home with it buckled in my front seat all the way through Canada. Good times!

  15. I love watching the Smurfs when I was younger. I think my favorite was Smurfette at the time but I always loved watching Gargamel trying to get them and not succeeding. 🙂

  16. When I was a kid I collected Smurf figures. They cost $1.50 and I got $.75 a week for allowance, so I saved up and bought one every other week. I had quite a collection!

  17. Shemp DeYoung says:

    I had Smurf toys long before I ever knew about the cartoon. Somebody had given them to me as a gift, but unlike today where you can go online or to a store, we had to wait until we happened to catch it on tv. I liked playing with them regardless.

  18. I remember having little smurf figurine toys that I loved to play with. I also loved to watch smurfs on tv.
    Thanks!
