Smurfs 2 doesn't hit theatres until July 31st, but the toys are already hitting retail.
I saw the first movie with my daughter, and I admit I didn't hate it like I thought I would. I've seen a lot worse done to beloved Saturday Morning properties!
I haven't seen the preview yet for this sequel, but this time around there's a new Smurfette in town, sort of...
What I do know is that the in original origin of Smurfette was that she was created by Gargamel to, I don't know, trap the Smurfs...or something. And she had black hair. She became blonde when Papa Smurf turned her from evil, and turned her on to Miss Clairol apparently.
Oh come on Grouchy. Admit it, she's kinda cute!
Vexy is also voiced by Christina Ricci.
"I hate interns..."
These two figure sets are retailing for around $6.99, but for some reason my local target had this set and one other on clearance for $1.76! They must have thought they were holdovers from the last movie, or they weren't in the system yet, or...something. My local Target has done weird things like that before. Regardless, I got lucky to find them for so cheap!
