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.

Walking around Harvard Square we happened upon this store and were flabbergasted - a Curious George Store? In Cambridge? And so we got to learn a bit about the story of Curious George and how his creators, Margret and H.A. Rey., fled Paris just before...More
