The Smurfs Smurfette Plush Toy from Firebox

P4117_main The Smurfs may be a distant blue memory to you, but this Smurfette Plush Toy from Firebox is proof positive that they will be making an imminent return to our screens.

Simpsons luminary Hank Azaria and Dougie Howser MD himself, Neil Patrick Harris (another eighties throwback) accompany none other than Katy Perry who voices the aforementioned Smurfette in this 3D live action/CGI family movie.

The Smurfette Toy is every bit as cute as the original cartoon character. Measuring 10 inches high she's supersoft, as are her little blue friends; Gutsy, Clumsy and Papa Smurf. The toys cost £14.99 each and are available from Firebox here.
