Smurf Village

I ran across these Smurf villages on clearance at Toys R Us not too long ago. Each had been marked $5 off and I suspect the prices will go lower than that soon.

When I see toys like this in stores today I wonder if there is a market for them? My kids got their fill of small plastic toys from McDonald’s and Burger King. When I was their age I was into collecting action figures; they are more into electronic games already. I can’t imagine my kids being adults and having a shelf full of Smurfs in their computer room…

    For the smurfy-minded, the Smurfs Village game (for Android/iOS…sigh) is AWESOME. What memories it brings back. It even features Baby Smurf and the Smurflings. Now if we could just have Smurfberry Crunch and Chef Boyardee Smurf Pasta again….
