Smurf Week - Day 2 FAO Schwartz

DAY 2 of Smurf Week in NYC I got to go to FAO Schwartz to see the famous "Smurfulator" from the movie and met a Smurf. The event was supposed to be from 2 to 4 but apparently they did not have enough "Smurf" dolls on hand and sold most in the AM. A bunch of people were waiting for some sort of "organization" but no one knew what was supposed to happen and the only 2 that had their "Smurf" white hats on were 2 young people showing how to play a Smurf game and the young girl was putting tattoos on little children. The rest of the Smurf Staff thought they were too cool and maybe should apply to Abercombie! I asked an adult FAO Schwartz Employee if they had anymore Smurf small stuffed dolls and he said no and not that many big ones either. They did not expect them to sell out like that! What?? Who is FAO's marketing director? I heard a lady ask where her child could take a picture with the Smurf and they said "He went on a break he was out this morning and just walks around". It was cute all in all and hopefully if they have future events they will have a "Staff" member in charge of all the fun and organization. In all fairness the event is for a few more days and was until 4:00 PM, so I am sure they will have a better system and give out goodie bags and gifts. This is fun to go to different Smurf events! I hope you get a chance to go to one and visit with NYC and the Smurfs. Have a Smurftastic Day!! xoox

Love this post Grace. You write about "wild things" in the city and I write about "wild things" in the country. Probably not so different after all. xo

LOVED LOVED this post!! Nel used to love the smurfs when she was little, and watched all of their shows. Handy Smurf was her favorite. I am going to tell her to stop by for a little look down memory lane. Thanks for sharing this.
