  • A nice selection of books both Curious George and others. There were also other toys available in this small shop. There was plenty of Curious George merchandise available. The store is small and it d...  more »
  • Unique store--came here because it's the only one in the world. So it's a tourist destination. Gets crowded, so be prepared for that. Good selection is Curios George items--obviously.  more »
  • This ADORABLE store is a quick stop and something you must do in Cambridge. Its bright yellow exterior is visible when you come up from the Harvard Square subway stop, so you can't miss it. There is e...  more »

  • I popped into this locally-owned and operated business two weeks ago because . . . The World's Only Curious George Store. I was pleasantly surprised to discover the friendly employees actually KNEW the books! I asked about several titles, and each time, the employee shared an accurate synopsis and enthusiastic recommendations for students who enjoy specific genres or topics. Her energetic passion for literacy and reading was contagious and this English Language Arts teacher and Literacy Specialist appreciated it! When I return to the area, this will most definitely be one of my stops! I can't wait to introduce my nephew to this store and purchase a few books and educational toys for him!
  • Very cute, just what you'd expect from a kids' book store, about half toys and half books. Entrance is wheelchair accessible but the store is a bit tight. Was able to make it through the whole thing with an adult-size power chair but it was tedious and with such small space, other customers and a wheelchair user will often be blocking each other, resulting in a lot of backwards walking and rolling. Maybe find out what time is less busy to stop by with a chair. Overall cute place though, many things are not crazy overpriced either like you might expect from a specific stores they sell many, many items that have nothing to do with Curious George also, so worth a look even if you're not really a fan of the kids books monkey.
  • Lots of fun. The staff is very friendly and helpful. They have lots of games, toys and books for Curious George,Dr. Suess and others. Really enjoyed our visit. Found the perfect gift for our granddaughter.
  • Love to support local businesses. Great gift ideas for kids of all ages.
  • It was so fun to be in there. They have a lot of the old books I loved to read and a lot of new books as well. Lots of toys, trinkets, and educational material.

Where to stay in Cambridge

As the home of two renowned universities, Cambridge caters mainly to the families of current or prospective students. You can stay near the university campuses by booking your room at a student-oriented bed and breakfast or guesthouse, which offer simple, comfortable lodging for a fraction of the price charged by the big chains. If you don't mind paying more and wish to stay near the city's major cultural attractions, consider a hotel just across the Charles River from downtown Boston.
