Growing up bi-racial, I often struggled to figure out where I belonged. Was I black? Was I white? Was I neither black nor white? It took me a long time, but I finally figured out that it didn’t matter. All that mattered was that I was me, Astra, and as that person, I could belong anywhere. Thankfully, our beloved Curious George is one of those rare characters that are brought into the world already knowing where he belongs – he instinctively knows that he can and does belong anywhere. His curiosity and mischief may get him into trouble at times, but he always remains true to himself – a curious little monkey. In Curious George’s honor, we are currently transforming The Curious George Store into a fun, interactive, experiential place that we can all call home. During this transformation, we want your input. We want your involvement. We want to and will be providing you with opportunities to integrate whatever it is that is special about and to YOU into building our new collective home: the fun, interactive, and wonder-filled Curious George Store in which anyone and everyone belongs.

  1. Just curious when your new store will be up and running? Brought my granddaughter for our annual run to Harvard Square so she can purchase something Curious George whether it’s a new monkey with a new outfit or a book or a t-shirt wheel of my annual pilgrimage. Went there yesterday to find a closed sign on the door. Looking forward to your new opening just curious when that will be.

    1. Hi Cheryl, At the moment we are not 100% sure on timing. We are hoping to be open by the end of the year, 2019, but depending on many factors, it may be early 2020. We will be updating with more information on here and our social media pages as soon as we have news to share. Stay Curious!
