[Europe] Meet The Smurfs in Brussels

by - October 16, 2015

Even though i'm not a child, but i really like to watch children's movies. Probably it because i have a 5 years old daughter, who likes to watch movies all the time. We like to spend our time together by watching cartoon, or another children's movies. But, there's one character that we like the most. It's The Smurfs....

Therefore, i'm so glad to knew about MOOF (Museum Of Original Figurines). I read about MOOF at people's blog  (i forget the name) who was traveling at Europe by Mega Bus . She had a short transit time at Brussels, and she took that time to go to MOOF for take a picture with the huge statue of Smurfs. It looks so cute and i really want to go there.

Finally, we arrived at Brussels. Aurelia and me felt so excited to meet the "giant" Smurfs. While we were walking from Bruxelles Central Station to MOOF, we saw some stores sell the Smurfs stuff such as dolls, toys, T-shirt. I was curious about that, but we just kept walking to MOOF.

MOOF is located between Novotel and Best Western Premier Hotel, not far from the Grand Place. We didn't go into the museum, because we didn't have a lot of time in Brussels. We just wanted to take a picture with the statue of Smurfs. Suddenly, we found the heaven for the Smurfs lover, next to the MOOF. It's a Smurfs Store!!!

At this store, i saw a lot of dolls, clothes, even the DVD, and all about Smurfs. Looking all the dolls here makes me wanted to buy them. Especially the biggest "Papa Smurfs" doll. It's really cute ♡♡ But i couldn't buy it because i knew it's gonna be hard to bring this doll during my Europe trip :(

Well, i didn't see the Smurfs just in here. While i was exploring another part of Brussels, i also saw the chocolate store sell the chocolate "Smurfs" box. The price is quite expensive, €32 for 1 box. However, if Brussels was the last city i visited at my Europe Trip, i would buy this chocolate for sure. It looks really cute and lovely.

Why there's a lot of Smurfs in Brussels?
Well, looking so many stores sell Smurfs stuff makes me curious about it. And i just know that Smurfs were created by Belgian cartoonist, Pierre Culliford in 1958. (Source: http://www.dailymail.co.uk/femail/article-2516878/Belgium-looks-Smurfs-boost-tourist-numbers.html ). This fact makes me understand why i met a lot of Smurfs at Brussels.

Who does love Smurfs??? Make sure Brussels become the city that you want to visit. I'm pretty sure you'll like it here.
