A visit to the World's Only CURIOUS GEORGE store


 When we travelled to Boston recently, we were excited to discover the world’s only Curious George store at Harvard Square.  It is a cozy little corner shop delightfully decorated with scenes from CG's adventures, 'The Man with the Yellow Hat' and other characters from the CG series.


   

The shop is stocked with CG dolls, books, tee shirts, reusable bags, and a ton of other CG stuff.  

Not only that, it carries non-CG branded books, toys, games, and other things.  I especially loved the tee shirts based on popular book covers such as Charlotte’s Web, Make Way for Ducklings, and so on.  We spent nearly an hour browsing the store.  It is a wonderful place to find gifts for loved ones and, even if you don't, it is definitely worth a visit if you are in the area.

My son has been a fan of Curious George, the cute little monkey, ever since he was two when Grandma bought him the huggable CG doll.  Five years later, he still sleeps with him, reads books and watches the telly with him and even takes him along on family vacations.  So imagine his delight when he found a store dedicated to CG!!

  


Created by H.A. Rey and Margret Rey, Curious George is the main character in the CG series of books along with his friend-owner, ‘The Man with the Yellow Hat’, as he is referred to.  ‘The Man with the Yellow Hat’ brings him to NYC from Africa.  The stories are about CG’s adventures or discoveries as he visits and observes different places with ‘the man'.
