Smurfs Kinder Suprise ‘En Ville’ collection

Les Schtroumpfs En Ville Kinder Surprise.

I recently finished another Kinder Surprise Chocolate Egg Smurfs collection, having grabbed the final two figures I needed from a well known online auction site. The collection is called En Ville (in the city) and features our favourite blue friends in city character costumes. The collection premiered in the summer of 2018 and is a nice addition to the other Kinder Smurfs I have.

Bonus Smurfs!

These aren’t from Kinder, they’re from McDonald’s fast food promotions, but they’re still pretty cool – especially the last set which came with little Smurf cottages!

Thank you for Smurfing along with us 🙂

I couldn’t leave without showing a handful of German catalogue pages for the original line of 1960s and onwards Smurfs figurines as made by Peyo. These were so cute, and I remember one of my younger brothers having a big collection of them.
