Wear your favorite hat, and stick around to create one you can take home!

Nick T. from CT Asks: "Are you guys really the World's Only Curious George Store?" We sure are! The first iteration of the store was opened by a family friend of Margaret Rey, the co-creator of Curious George. This store then became Curious George Goes to Wordsworth and was open for 15 years! When that store closed in May 2011, many in the Cambridge community felt the void of this historical store. With the support of many friends and institutions in the community, the Hirsch's brought the Curious George store back to life with a fresh new look and feel! Come visit this destination store and check out the exclusive line of Curious George merchandise.
Snow days can be super fun for playing in powder, stacking snow men, and epic snow battles, but how do you keep the little ones entertained when its just a bit too blustery outside? Check out our awesome Pinterest page for some great ideas for yucky weather entertainment.
