Hi,

Back in the late 80's my grandmother bought me a Smurf Village playset. It came in a big, thin box containing thick perferrated paper sheets with various Smurfs, Gargamel and parts of Smurf mushroom houses. It also had clear plastic bases and a sheet for a placemat.

You popped out the characters and slid them into the little clear plastic bases so they'd stand up. The mushroom house parts popped out, folded and fit together to make houses.

I haven't seen anything like it since. Does anyone else remember such a playset or have any information on this? I probably still have parts of it scattered around somewhere. lol

Have a smurfy day!

Hi SmurfFan,

Your Smurf Village Playset sounds really smurfy! You gave such a great description of it. It makes a couple of things come to mind. Was this cardboard Smurf Village Play Set the one you had as a child?

 -
Smurf Play Village (1981)
By Lakeside Games


 -
Back of the Box

The Smurf Play Village is from 1981. It was made in Denmark. The box reads, "Act out your favorite Smurf stories. No scissors required. Contains: Village Plan, 4 Houses, Bridge, Well, Campfire, Trees, Bushes and 36 Smurfs". You basically put together all of the cardboard pieces and put the Smurfs on stands to create your own Smurf Village!

[Happy Smurf]

Or maybe it was this Popup Smurf Village Playset made out of cardboard - the one with the mushroom houses?

 -
Smurf Pop-Up Playsets (1983)

There was also a punch-out Smurf Book that came out in 1982 by Random House. It was called A Smurf Village Punch-Out Book. You popped out the perforated pieces to make a Smurf Village. There were Smurfs, Houses, Well, Windmill, Plants & Flowers and even Azrael!

Hmm...from what I recall, the closest one is the one from Denmark. It had mushroom houses and Smurfs like that, and maybe some of the other pieces. But I don't think it had that many pieces.

It was bought here in the U.S., so it must have been some kind of variant. I wish I kept it and it's box all together, but kids don't think that far ahead! lol

Thanks for the information Sassette. [Wink]

The Smurf Playset made in Denmark is actually from the Lakeside Games company (an American company) - which was a division of Leisure Dynamics, Inc. from Minneapolis, Minnesota. They made a lot of popular games in the 1970s and 1980s.

As for keeping the box... don't we all wish we keep the boxes of our childhood toys! Actually, I think it's better that we all played with our toys and just enjoyed them rather than keeping them sealed perfectly in boxes / packages!!
