Woolworths supermarket surprised everyone recently by releasing three Smurf garden statues. Australian supermarkets aren’t known for random Smurf merchandise items like places in Europe. But what I found interesting about the release was that the garden statues are a replica of Schleich figurines.
The three garden statues are the following:
- 1994’s Smurfette with Flower #20421
The garden statue of Smurfette doesn’t have a flower but has the pink bag with white polka dots
- 2019’s Papa Smurf #20814
- 2020’s Smurf with Good Luck Charm #20819
The Smurf garden statues are made of polyresin material 28cm high. Believe me when I tell you this means that they are breakable. The only marking is a Peyo signature on the side of the green base.
Why have collectors found these adorable? Is it because Australia rarely has exclusive Smurf merchandise? Possibly. Or is it because these look better than the original Schleich ones?
In my opinion, it’s both of these answers. Perhaps there is also an element of people you know telling you about them. These are the kind of people who are excited just as much of you. Why because they saw a Smurf and liked it.
What do you think of the Smurf garden statues?
