Hello Scott,
Awesome!  I love the Smurfs!  I do have a couple of questions about the box.  Would you mind answering them for me?  Let me know.

Thanks,

Scott,
Thank you for being so helpful.  I truly appreciate it.
There were between 99 and 105 Smurfs that resided in the Smurf village.  Do you know which Smurfs are depicted on the box?  This could be vital in determining what I will do with this incredible piece of memorabilia.  From the picture, it appears that Papa Smurf is definitely on the box, which is ideal.  He truly was a model citizen, and, of course, the patriarch of the village.
Do you know when the box was made?  You referred to it as “Smurf box” in the title of your ad. (For a moment, I thought you were selling something else!)  You didn’t actually keep Smurfs in the Smurf Box, did you?
Would it be possible to come spend some time with the box, just to make sure it feels right?
Looking forward to hearing back from you.

Thanks,
RP
