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.

Rubik’s Cube notepad

Rubik's cube

We've featured this classic 1980s game in many forms but surprisingly not yet in the form of this Rubik's Cube notepad.

Unlike some of the designs we feature, this is official Rubik's Cube merchandise. That doesn't add too much, except a logo on the packaging. It's purely a block notepad, printed with the image of a completed cube. You peel the pages off as you work through the pad: much simpler to understand than the actual puzzle!

The pad costs £4.99.

  PhpThumb_generated_thumbnailjpg
It seems that barely a week passes without a new Lego-inspired product being released, so it's nice to see another much-loved childhood toy getting a look in too, with these Playmobil XL figures from Leblon-Delienne.

These small moveable figures have come in many different guises over the years – knights, pirates and zulu warriors to name but a few. The XL figures are giant versions of the 7.5cm characters, scaled up to 24cm and made from resin. There are two figures available, Fireman and Nurse and each one comes in a limited edition of just 1000.

The figures cost £119 each and are available from www.theo-theo.com here.
