How much is my Smurf worth?

The value of your Smurf depends on a number of factors:
Condition, Variation, Markings, and the Marketplace. Keep reading this page for a description of each of these qualities and see how it relates to the value of your Smurf.
How do I know the condition of my Smurf?

Your Smurf is in mint condition if it has no blemishes or discoloration, is perfectly formed, fully painted, and looks "as new". Mint condition Smurfs command the full valuation as listed in our Price Guide. You'll get top-dollar selling mint Smurfs, and if you're buying one - expect to pay full price.

Any imperfection, at all, means your Smurf is not mint. Does it have a small mark or buff? Then your Smurf is not mint. Does your Smurf have a tiny scratch or paint blemish? Then it's not mint! Even small painting irregularities mean the Smurf is not mint. You cannot sell non-mint Smurfs and expect the price listed in our Price Guide. On the other hand, if you're looking to complete your collection, a non-mint Smurf is an affordable way to do so.
What is a Smurf variation?


Smurf Color Variation


Smurf Mold Variation


A Smurf variation is a significant color or mold difference for a particular Smurf figurine. Significant color variations are things like different colored scarves (yellow vs. red) or different color swim-shorts. A mold variation refers to an actual change in mold shape or size. Some Smurf figures are "tweaked" over the years, and new molds are created although the name and number of the Smurf stays the same.

In addition to significant Color and Mold Variations, you will sometimes see slight hue differences in the paint colors like a "lemon yellow" vs a "mustard yellow" or a "light brown" vs a "dark brown". These "subtle" color variations are due to the batches being produced at different times. Ultimately, the most unique type of Smurf variation is the painting error - such as Smurfette without her panties painted on! Because Smurf figures are hand-painted by people, it is easy to see how a few painting mistakes can occur... afterall, to err is human!
What do the markings on the bottom of my Smurf mean?

Smurfs are stamped or painted with a variety of little markings that may help increase its value to a particular collector. If you're selling a Smurf, listing this information will tell buyers immediately everything they need to know about it. If you're collecting Smurfs, knowing this data will help you make a more perfect collection.

1980s Smurf MarkingYear Stamp: This stamp refers to the date the Smurf mold was created (not the date that specific Smurf was made).
Smurf Mold DigitSingle Digit: This stamp, one digit long (usually 1-8), refers to the position the mold occupies in the PVC injection machine (it is used to help the manufacturers detect defects).
Smurf CE MarkingCE Stamp: European manufacturers must place this stamp on all items to show "minimum compliance with applicable European directives". Until the 1990s, placing a CE Stamp on an item was voluntary (which is why we see it on some 1970s and 1980s Smurfs and not others).
Peyo MarkingsPeyo Stamp: All Smurfs should be stamped "Peyo", a reference to the person who created the Smurfs. Sometimes Peyo is written as a signature, sometimes it is printed in standard text.
Schleich Manufacturer StampManufacturer Stamp: Smurfs have been made by a variety of companies, who stamp their name on each Smurf they make. The list of stamps include: Applause, Wallace Berrie & Co., Schleich, Bully, Dupuis and Hering.
Smurf Country MarkingsCountry Stamp: The country the Smurf was made in. Generally, the countries are: Germany / West Germany, Hong Kong, China, Sri Lanka, Portugal and Macau. Read about the countries that make Smurfs.
Yellow Paint Dot on Smurf FigurinePaint Dot: A colored paint dot representing which country the Smurf was painted in. Paint dots include: Red (Sri Lanka), Yellow (Portugal), Green (Tunisia), Black, White and Blue. Colored dots may also refer to which specific PVC formulation was used.
Muster Smurf MarkingMuster Stamp: These rare "M" stamps refer to Smurfs who truly "pass muster", and are of the highest quality. A muster Smurf is used as a perfect example for painting other Smurfs of the same mold. Muster is the German word for "sample".
How does the marketplace affect my Smurf's value?

The value of a Smurf is determined by its scarcity and how much other people want it... and are willing to pay for it! Typically the harder it is to find a Smurf, then the more valuable that Smurf is. Many Smurfs were made in limited quantities and will fetch higher prices because there are fewer of them around. Also, Smurfs that have been discontinued or retired will be more vaulable. And don't forget that the time of year can also affect the value. For example, Christmas Smurfs tend to be more in demand during the Christmas holiday season. Use our Price ID Lists as a general guide for value, but remember that the marketplace can be fickle - so buy and sell accordingly.
