The Smurfs are a curious bunch of folk. Small, unassuming and blue, they live quietly in their Smurf village. There are hundreds of Smurfs products on the market, including lunchboxes, cuddly toys and action figures. The action figures are now made by Schleich, who produce a small handful of new designs each year. Highly collectible, the Smurfs make great ideas for childrens' pocket money or for more serious collectors, who wish to build a complete collection.
Each Smurf usually stands about one inch in height. This chap is the Brainy Smurf and he is in the same height line as the rest of his pals. Does he looks brainy enough though? I am unsure. There is an element of geek chic about hi, with those glasses he looks like he could work in a library, though he looks a bit dopey around the eyes. I would have had him with his eyes open, looking dazzling and challenging.
He also has a pointy finger, which appears to be waggling at someone in disagreement. His open mouth again adds to the dopey look of the character. The rest of the toy is a pretty basic looking Smurf, with all the blues and whites in check. He is one of the blandest of the Smurfs, with very little to set him apart from a casual Smurf, aside from the glasses. I would not put him high up on the Smurf desirability scale. Having been quite critical of him, he is quite cheap, at just under three pounds and will be a neat addition to any collection.
You can buy him online from Amazon, though I would plump for some more interesting looking Smurfs and save him for later. Maybe they can rename him Dopey Smurf then it might work better!
