We are thrilled to share that the World's Only Curious George Store has been named "Best of New England -- Kids' Book & Toy store" in the upcoming Yankee Magazine's May/June 2013 issue.

As we celebrate our first year in business it is wonderful to have the hard work and dedicated efforts of our talented team recognized by such a prestigious magazine.
Music  Food  Artists  and more!
A Festival for the Senses

Taste the local cuisine from dozens of food carts set up all around the square. Listen to live music from the main stage while exploring the sidewalk chalk artists all down Church Street
or hop a ride on the kid-friendly
Roaming Railroad train!

For this weekend celebration, we will be supporting the Cambridge Rotary Club Chalk the Walk Fundraiser.
$1 from each purchase of our sidewalk chalk will go to Chalk the Walk. This fundraiser brings together artists and sponsors to create beautiful street art while raising funds for the Club’s many charitable causes. These include scholarships for graduating high school students, donations to Cambridge charities, as well as emergency relief efforts.
