DESCRIPTION: SMURF TREE SWING
These were originally designed to be Pen Holders more
so than a Playset for smurfs however I think these look
too nice to be used for just a pen holder and looks really
great in a smurf display scene with houses and other
I was once told that the Tree Swing without the Green
which seemed plausible at the time however I now know
this is untrue due to the Peyo © markings which Alfred J
Kwak items do not have.
However it's also quite possible that there is another
variation out there similiar to these ones which could be
what that person was referring to.
If anyone sees one of these without the Peyo © marking
then please contact me as that would be interesting to
know if they do actually exist.

|TREE SWING PEN HOLDER BOX
DESCRIPTION: TREE SWING ON TRAPEZE
In my opinion this was never a Smurf item authorised by
Schleich or IMPS. It is the combination of the Tree Swing
Pencil Holder and the Trapeze Super Smurf with the Swing
being too wide for the Eyelets on the Trapeze causing the
Swing to be pushed out almost to the point of breaking. It
just doesn't sit right with me as an authorised item and at
this point I choose to believe it was just some creative
collectors who came up with the idea to add this
themselves even though it does appear every now and
then on Ebay.
Here on the box you can see how this item was intended
to be a Pen Holder. I am not aware of any different
variation of this box being produced although as with
everything involving smurfs.....there's always a possibility.
