About Cambridge Toy Stores
Cambridge is known for its academia, but it should also be known for its toy stores. For every kind of child, there are Cambridge toy stores for him or her.
The World’s Only Curious George Toy Store
1 JFK Street, Cambridge, MA 02138
You might be curious when you hear that Cambridge, M.A., is home to the World’s Only Curious George Store, but you better believe it! Although Curious George closed in 2011 after 15 years as “Curious George and Friends,” the store reopened in April 2012 giving people the chance to experience even more Curious George and his long Boston history.
Parents and children alike will love the Curious George Store with all the books and merchandise that can’t be found in any other toy store. While the store carries all of the beloved Curious George books, it also has many toys, apparel for all ages, novelty items, and even birthday party packages.
Made By Me
1685 Massachusetts Avenue, Cambridge, MA 02138
For parents and children looking for something a little more creative to do, Made By Me is a great place to unwind and take home a truly personal and unique work of art with paint and clay.
In a fun, easy, and safe environment, children and parents choose their pottery, sketch out whatever design they desire, and then pick from a variety of colors to see their work come to life!
After finishing their designs, children leave their art with the store’s employees, who glaze and fire the piece, which is ready for pickup six days later.
Made By Me also hosts children’s birthday parties and other group activities. The store is located in Harvard Square, and is easily accessible from the MBTA Red Line at Porter Square.
