Like many Smurfs, you may call this something different such as Smurfette with Mirror or Comb and Mirror Smurfette. For this piece I am going to call her Vanity Smurfette #20182 because it was used in the The Smurfs Official Collector’s Guide, published in 2013.
We first see Vanity Smurfette in the 1985 Schleich catalogue wearing a pink nightgown while brushing her golden blonde hair and admiring herself in a purple mirror. Schleich continued to sell it for another fifteen years.
In many ways, this is a classic Smurfette worth collecting. Not only is it Smurfette’s portrayal of her admiring herself, which is the kind of thing we expect from her. But it’s the slight colour differences of the nightgown and mirror. I also like that Smurfette’s eyelashes have been hand-painted onto the figurine. I am unsure if they still do this for newer versions of Smurfette.
The Smurfette’s Bedroom playset #40602 was available for a brief period in the USA from Applause in 1985. The Applause version was also quite different from the Schleich one.
Firstly, the Applause Smurfette’s Bedroom playset had hand-painted details on the furniture that the Schleich playset does not. Applause also used Vanity Smurfette. Some would say her nightgown and mirror match with the furniture. Schleich used the Smurfette from the Super Smurf Vanity Table #40234.

Please let me know if I have missed any markings for Vanity Smurfette.
Lastly I wanted to share with you one of the most strangest looking Smurfette’s I owe. You will see in one of the photographs that Vanity Smurfette’s pink nightgown has faded but nothing else. How bizarre!
