Are you familiar with the 2021 cartoon series of the Smurfs? If not Brainy Smurfway #20834 may make little sense to you. Don’t worry, I had no idea what a Smurfway was either. A Smurfway is a two wheel vehicle, similar to the human version of a Segway. Who else but Brainy Smurf would use this mode of transport.
Brainy Smurf is wearing black glasses and leans on his Smurfway, while giving a wave. Cute as it is, I would like to have seen Brainy Smurf on the Smurfway. Maybe the creators found this way too difficult. There is nothing worse than unstable Smurf that can’t be displayed. Also mine my figurine looks too skinny, I prefer a Smurf that looks more normal.
In my view, Brainy Smurfway and Smurf Girl Blossom will be the most popular. Largely due to the cartoon series aimed at the younger generation. The idea Brainy Smurf travels on a wooden made Smurfway creates a new level of interest.
If you buy Brainy Smurfway in its original bag, can you check the name for me. Mine had the name Smurf Segway. Was there an issue with Schleich using Segway in it’s name?

Back in early 2022 I announced the new Schleich Smurfs. It’s always fun to look back at one’s thoughts.
We kick off Schleich’s 2022 new releases with Fireman #20833. For 2022 Schleich released six new Smurfs. The Fireman is wearing a distinctive red fireman’s helmet and yellow jacket with one hand resting on his hip.
For those who have been collecting for a while, the fireman concept is not new to the Smurfs. First as a Super Smurf in 1982 and as regular in 2000. However, the 2022 Fireman offers a difference to past versions. The big difference is the helmet.
I really like the helmet with the gold stripe down the centre. It appears a lot of thought went into the design and making of the helmet. Though in my opinion, the jacket is lacking in design and looks ordinary. Where are the Fireman Smurf’s equipment or a tool-belt? Schleich also kept the white trousers but I think was intentional.
Like other Smurfs made in Romania their faces have similar features such as their eyes painted together and ears that stick out. Again I don’t mind this because at least they look like Smurfs. Back in 2017 the Smurfs looked very strange.
In summing up, would I buy another Fireman if I had the opportunity? Probably not, mainly because it’s not striking enough to display. If I was kid, I would probably appreciate it more.
