I have always been a massive Smurfs fan so I have unsurprisingly passed my love of the little blue characters on to my three kids. We are all very excited about the new Smurfs movie, Smurfs: The Lost Village which is due to be released on the 31st March with preview screenings in some cinemas this weekend the 25th March. The exciting news is that Schleich have released a fantastic new range of Smurfs Figures and Playsets that will allow fans to relieve their favourite film scenes. We were sent a Smurf House with Papa Smurf and figures Gargamel and Azrael to review.
Schleich Smurf House with Papa Smurf and Gargamel and Azrael
The Schleich Smurf House with Papa Smurf and figures Gargamel and Azrael is not just fantastic quality, the kind of which we have come to expect from Schleich, but it is impressively detailed with realistic characters and the things we find in their surroundings.
The playset contains a large iconic red and white toadstool Smurf house with working doors with a key which Zachary loves, windows with shutters that open and close that have a lovely heart shaped detail on them that Zoey spotted straight away, there are even little flowers on the roof to make it perfectly authentic. Included in the set are two figures, Papa Smurf and Gargamel with his loyal cat Azrael to help make the Smurfs world come to life.
The Playset requires some assembly but it is pretty straightforward to do, here is what comes in the box.
I love the fact that the instructions come are in a Smurf treasure map style which is very authentic and a lovely touch.
My kids are even more excited about the release of the new Smurfs movie now they have had a chance to play with the Smurf House and characteres. They love it and have been busy making up Smurf adventures inspired by the playset. It has been amusing watching the twins play with the set as they have decided the Smurfs and Batman should join forces and Papa Smurfs House sits alongside Zachary's Batcave where they work together to fight the Joker and Penguin. You have to love kids imaginations!

Smurf House with Papa Smurf and figures Gargamel and Azrael has an RRP of £29.99. You can see the the full collection of new Smurfs figures and playsets online at Schleich. I think we may have to start a new collection.
