Global Smurfs Day - 22nd June 2013

On Saturday 22nd June it's Global Smurf Day, which is held in celebration of the birthday of Peyo the creator of the Smurfs and also the impending new Smurfs movie, which is released later this month.

Before reaching us on television and film screens, Smurfs first featured in comic books.  Like many children's cartoon and comic book characters they have inspired collections of figurines and toys that are always introduced to new generations. We also love Smurfs here at Toyday and you can purchase your very own little smurf figure from our website.

Last year, people all over the world showed their love for these pesky little blue creatures by dressing up like them.  Venues in various cities were full of people painted blue wearing white floppy hats and white trousers. In 2011, a new record was set in in Andalusia where the famous white town was painted
blue and there was the largest gathering of people dressed as Smurfs within a 24 hour period.


This year, some of the events lined up include festivals and celebrations, including Australia's Surfers Paradise which will become Smurfers Paradise for the day! There will be Smurfathons being ran around the world, a huge sing-along with Right Said Fred in London and in L.A the Smurfs will be making an appearance with people having the chance to play the Ubisoft video game and sample Menchie's Smurfberry frozen yogurt. Visit Instagram and search #GlobalSmurfsDay to see photos from the day.

The Smurfs 2, stars Hank Azaria, Neil Patrick Harris, Jayma Mays and Katy Perry and is released in cinemas 31st July. In this sequel the evil wizard Gargamel creates some mischievous Smurf-like creatures called the Naughties to help him harness the all-powerful, magical Smurf-essence. However, he discovers that only a real Smurf can give him what he wants, and only a secret spell that Smurfette knows can turn the Naughties into real Smurfs, Gargamel kidnaps Smurfette and brings her to Paris, where he has been winning the adoration of millions as the world's greatest sorcerer. It's up to Papa, Clumsy, Grouchy, and Vanity to rescue her!
