If you have pictures or information about the History of the PVC-smurfs that you want
to share and think should be on this site, please let me know. Aaron Swartz wrote in his
Guerilla Open Access Manifesto "Information is Power. But like all power, there are
those who want to keep it for themselves...". I think it is important to share information
before it is forgotten, so remember Sharing is Caring!

The "Smurf mee, smurf BP" campaign in Holland in december 1977.
Biersmurf, Kadosmurf, Klownsmurf, Schildersmurf, Wandelsmurf, Spionsmurf and
Plaagsmurf are the dutch names on the smurfs on the bottom shelf.
Those were the 37 smurf you could get in Holland then.

The collectors guide to the smurfs

This is a collectors site about the PVC smurfs. It has no connection what so ever with
IMPS, Peyo, Schleich or Bully. The aim with this guide is to list all known variations of
all smurfs, playsets, buildings, boxes etc. Also give you as much information about
them as possible. Because I want to use as much space as possible for pictures I will try
to keep the listing simple. This will also make it a lot easier to navigate between the
pages both on the computer and the smartphone. If anything seems wrong or if you
have a variation not mentioned please let me know. Email: smurfar@telia.com

I would also like to thank all the members on the Blue Cavern forum. Without them
this research regarding the markings and chronology of the PVC smurfs would not
have been possible and also a lot less fun. :) If you want to join the forum and
take part in the smurfy discussions or just read about smurfs, ( many topics are
only seen as a member), visit the site and check it out.

The information you find here is based on information found in Schleich and
Bully catalogues, posters, boxes, Schleich and Bully websites, BP posters and
websites etc. Also a lot of information is to be found in the Smurf Collectors Club
International (SCCI) newsletters from 1986-1999. They had great connection
with Schleich and are very accurate when telling what happened during those
years. The SCCI letters are possible to read on Maureens site.
Read SCCI letters!!

Regarding the pictures, many of them are not mine, but thanks to other collectors I
have their permission to use them in this research. I have added their names on the
pictures and also their websites, in cases when they have their own collectorssite.
Many thanks for helping me with the pictures! :)
