How did the free smart phone application "Smurf's Village" become one of the highest grossing apps in the iTunes Store? Turns out the kids' game may be free, but unbeknownst to many parents, to build a virtual "Smurf Village" you have to pay very real dollars for "Smurf Berries."

We speak with mother Kelly Rummelhart of Gridley, California.  Her 4-year-old son, Sawyer, racked up nearly $70 in "Smurf-Berry" credit card charges.
