in Smurf Figures

Bunny Smurfs


I have been inspired this week to get to know a little bit more about the Easter smurfs that have been produced over the years. I felt a little ashamed of myself that I knew so little about them and with Easter only a few weeks ago I thought what better time to explore. 

The first Easter smurf I collected was Smurf in Bunny Suit. This Smurf is dressed up in a white bunny outfit and presents you with a big green egg wrapped with a yellow ribbon.

Smurf in Bunny Suit was made in three different countries, Hong Kong, Portugal and lastly China. It appears that the same mould may have been used and the only difference is with the paint colours. When you get the chance have a look at the pink paint used on the inside of bunny ears. 

It was some time after this I was able to find Smurfette in Bunny Suit. The Easter Bunny Smurfette wears a pink bunny suit and carries a basket of eggs.

Like Smurf in Bunny Suit, Smurfette in Bunny Suit was made in Hong Kong, Portugal and China. The major difference is the pink pvc used, from pale pink to a lighter pink.

Smurf in Bunny Suit and Smurfette in Bunny Suit were first sold as Seasonal pair by Wallace Berrie with the article number 6520. These were both made in Hong Kong.

First sold as Seasonal pair, Smurf in Bunny Suit and Smurfette in Bunny Suit in 1983 by Schleich with article number 20832. These were both made in Portugal. 

Schleich produced both bunnies from 1983 to 1986 and then again from 1989 to 1995. In 1996 Schleich made new Easter smurfs with new article numbers.  Sadly the two Easter bunnies were not part of the new Easter themed smurfs. It is unclear why this was. 

So if you know someone who adores their smurfs instead of buying them chocolate easter eggs this year how about getting them an Smurf bunny.

Keep on Smurfin
