I participated in a campaign on behalf of Mom Central Consulting for Haribo. I received product samples, and a promotional item as a thank you for participating.
Are you a huge Smurf fan?
Both F&B are! They originally got into the old cartoon back when we still had cable. Then, of course, the Smurfs movie came out, which fueled the obsession, and we reviewed the Smurf Dance Party game which made it even more. They *still* play the game. They also discovered the Smurf Village app on my iPhone, which means they each have a village to tend to. Nana even bought Ben a Brainy Smurf shirt!
Why do I love the Smurfs? I think it's because I was a fan when I was little too. My brother and I would watch it every Saturday morning (many many moons ago), so it's so much fun sharing it with my kids, and even remembering some of the old episodes. Of course, it cracks me up when Ben will describe an episode in detail, then ask if I remember some particular nuance. I should get points for remembering the different Smurf names!
And now, there's a new Smurf movie out! Smurfs 2 just opened in theaters and the kids can't wait to see it! Since we were away on vacation for the early part of August, we haven't seen it yet, but we are hoping to soon! Even better, we'll be enjoying our Smufs movie with our Haribo Smurfs candy.
We received several packages to sample and all four of us are loving them. The husband is a bit of a Haribo gummi bear addict anyhow (his absolute favorite kind) and the kiddos are loving the Smurfs ones. I admit, it's a lot of fun to figure out which Smurf you're snacking on. So far, we've found Papa, Smurfette, Brainy and Vanity. I think I've found Clumsy, but Faith thinks it's just a regular Smurf of sorts. Either way, we're enjoying them and have decided they will be the perfect snack for the new movie.
They may also be the perfect for Smurf night at our house. We plan to rewatch the first movie, and maybe play a little Smurfs Dance Party before seeing the new movie.
How about your family? Are you as excited as we are about another round of Smurfs?
