Did you know that there are Smurfs from Brazil? It's true - they're called Hering Smurfs... marked Hering Made in Brazil. Read more about Hering Smurf Figures and the special Hering Smurf Figures here!

What are Hering Smurfs?

Hering Smurfs are Smurf figurines from Brazil that have the "Hering" stamp. Hering Smurfs are from the 1980s and look and feel very similar to the Schleich and Bully Smurfs that most collectors are familiar with. The exception being the unique Hering markings.

Hering Smurf Markings

Hering Smurfs have the marking "Hering" printed on them. In full, they say "Hering" with "MADE IN BRAZIL" right underneath. The Peyo and Schleich stampings are also present. The Hering markings are clear and legible.

Hering Smurfs also sometimes have production mold number markings on them. In the photo on the left, Cowboy Smurf has a "1" mold number, and First Aid Smurf has a "4" mold number (read more about these single digit markings here).

Special Hering Smurfs

In addition to the standard Hering Smurf figurines, there are unique Hering Smurf figures, that feature special markings as well.

As revealed by BlueBuddies friend Squeaky Smurf, Hering Smurfs sometimes have the words "Hering" and "Made in Brazil" erased or barely visible to the naked eye.

It appears that the molds at some point were modified to remove the Hering and Made in Brazil markings - but you can see them if you look closely! Because these "erased" Herings still say "Hering" on them, they are still considered Hering Smurfs, although they are difficult to collect because it's really hard to see stamps that have been almost completely erased!

Look carefully, the Papa Smurf and Grouchy Smurf Hering figures to the right have their markings almost completely removed.

Hering Smurf Package

The Hering Smurfs originally were sold in Brazil in plastic packages with cardboard tops (see photo). The package reads, "Nós somos os Hering Smurfs", which translates into, "We are the Hering Smurfs". The picture on the cardboard top shows several Smurf Figurines - Papa, Lover, Signbearer and Spy. The back side of the package shows a little blond boy in a tuxedo pointing to a starburst logo that reads, "Coleção Smurf" or Smurf Set. The figurine package is clearly marked, "Hering", "Schleich" and "Peyo".

This is the complete list of Hering Smurfs. For the most part, the Hering Smurfs look the same as the Schleich Smurfs. The molds are the same, the paint is mostly the same (with some minor variations), but the markings are obviously different.

An example of a paint variation would be on the Tailor Smurf - the sewing needle on the figure is either silver (like the Schleich version) or sometimes it is black.

* One very noticeable paint difference is on the Sunbather Smurf. The Schleich Sunbather has stripes on his swim trunks. The Hering Sunbather has black dots instead! The Hering Sunbathers have either red or green shorts with black spots. The Schleich Sunbathers have yellow, red, green or white shorts with stripes.

Hering Display Cases

Hering also made wooden display cases for the Smurf Figures. There is a Papa Smurf Case ("Papai Smurf - Hering"), a Smurfette Case ("Smurfete - Hering"), and a Smurf Family Case ("Familia Smurf - Hering").

The cases are all shaped like a Mushroom House. The Papa case and Smurfette case have the same design with 11 spaces for Smurfs. Each case measures about 16 inches. The Smurf Family Case is larger at about 21 inches and holds 23 figurines.
