New York has recently recruited some slightly unusual ambassadors to encourage families from across the globe to visit the magnificent city, and you may recognise them! They’re small, blue, and some fashion white beards... yes it’s the Smurfs!

After filming their upcoming film in New York City, The Smurfs have been named the “Get More NYC Family Ambassadors” to encourage more families to visit the Big Apple, with a special itinerary of things to do and see in the city on their website.

The ‘Smurf-tinerary’ includes some of the locations visited by the little blue folk during their adventures in New York City. Manhattan’s family must-dos include Belvedere Castle and the Boathouse Restaurant in Central Park; the United States’ oldest toy store, FAO Schwarz; and Times Square. Not forgetting the Statue of Liberty giving children the chance to feel as small as a Smurf next to a full-sized human.
