This Magic Garden is Smurf-tastic. These Smurfs® are 40+ years old from when JoyMaster Lisa used to collect them. One of the mushroom houses is a vintage house, and the others are wooden bird houses created to look like Smurf houses. These houses are really fun to create because they are colorful and wachy letting kids imaginations really soar.  Since a movie was made about the Smurfs, kids of all ages love them. We left Gargamel out of the magic, but if you want an evil wizard, he would fit right in. To smurf or not to smurf, that is your question.
