Georgia was a smurf in her school concert about two years ago. Since then she has been loving the ”Smurfies.”
It is not exactly a popular toy, so there was little we could do to feed this obsession.
Then the 3D movie came out.
Kennith took Connor and Georgia. Georgia took her soft-toy you she calls Clumsy.
Georgia loved the movie.
We have the movie/DVD/Blu Ray/BMX?ASAP or what ever at home and Georgia watches it on loop.
Whilst the movie is on, I can see her mouthing the words. The same girl who forgets nearly everything seems to have committed the entire Smurf Movie script to memory.
That’ll be useful. No doubt.
I really would like to say it is a great movie. I really would. Some of the quips are clearly aimed at the rather frustrated parent sitting though this movie.
I am a bit of a fan of Neil Patrick Harris – he of the “How I Met your Mother” fame – “It will be legend-wait for it… and I hope you’re not lactose intolerant because the second half of that word is dairy!”
I love Barney. So I think he was the only reason I could get through The Smurfs. Granted he was not Barney in Smurfs. But he will always be “Barney” to me.
Back to Smurfs.
She loves them.
It reminded Kennith and I that we used to be quite in to the Smurfs when we were kids. We are talking before 1980 here. There was a petrol station – I think it might be BP – who had the Smurfs and if you bought 25 cents worth of petrol or something, you got a smurf figurine. Back then when. Kennith said he had all of them, and then sold them when he was about 11 or 12 for a stick of gum, or some other not-really-worth-it-for-all-those-cool-collector-characters.
I have been hunting for Smurfette in London. Smurfette appears to be sold out. I have been looking for a Smurfette soft/plush toy, and there is just nothing to be found.
Who knew a 50 year old character could be this popular?
I did buy her some small figurines and a smurf house – remember it was a toadstool!
Operation Find Smurfette is in full swing …… it might get side tracked by Operation I-saw-a-really-nice-hair-flattener-Nicky-Clarke-thing-at-Boots-that-I-really-love-and-it-was-50%-off ….
