I can’t wait! Schleich has finally released information on the 2022 Smurfs due out in July. There are six new designs, which is exciting to see. So far the names are only in German. The English translation used by Schleich come July could be quite different to mine.
#20833 Feuerwehr Schlumpf – Fire Department Smurf
#20834 Speedy Schlumpf – Speedy Smurf
#20835 Schlumpf Madchen Blossom – Smurf Girl Blossom
#20836 Griesgram Schlumpf – (Google translated this into something in Welsh!)
#20837 Farmer Schlumpf – Farmer Smurf
#20838 Fauli Schlumpf – Lazy Smurf
Like any new announcement, there has been a mixture of responses from collectors. Some say they look like Lego friends or that the designs are unimaginative. But I don’t care because I love the fact that Schleich is still making Smurfs in 2022.
However, I bet you the collectors who complain about the 2022 Smurfs will still buy them. These are the same collectors who have no new ideas on what Schleich should try to create.
Did I tell you? I can’t wait
Keep on Smurfin
