Can you keep it a secret?


Our little grandson, Drew loves Curious George as you can see here.

He got George this past Christmas (actually he found his gift early, so his mother didn't have the heart to take it away from him!). The two have been inseparable since first meeting.

George has had some interesting experiences including a couple of showers and a swirly. George is very helpful to have around. Sometimes in the evenings or at naptime when "George is tired" Drew will very happily crawl into bed so that he and George can get some much needed rest!

I recently found this little George and purchased him for Drew's birthday which is coming up soon. This George is in his pajamas and is holding a little teddy bear. I'm not sure he will be as well loved as his predecessor, but perhaps he can stand in when George I is drying out from his next water adventure.

Another gift that is going into Drew's birthday package is this little gift set of the book Corduroy and a little Corduroy bear wearing green corduroy overalls. This set is in honor of Corduroy's 40th birthday.

So, if you see Drew, please keep these new friends a secret. Fortunately he doesn't read my blog, so I'm safe sharing these pictures with you.

    Where did you find the bedtime George? I have a little grandson now (five months old) and I think that would be just the thing for him to enjoy soon.

    I found him at Barnes and Noble. He was on a vertical rack with lots of other stuffed animals, many who are characters from story books. I had seen him one other time when I was in there and I was a little worried when he wasn’t on the shelf near the Curious George books. Fortunately he and a couple of identical friends had just moved to the other side of the childrens’ book area. Hope you can find one for your little grandson.

    My daughter (who is now 31) loved her Curious George. Since she was an only child until her brother was born when she was twelve, “George” became another member of the family.

    She still has George but I think he’s looking down from a closet shelf in her home. 🙂

    Brenda,
    Thanks for your comment. George is a very appealing little character.
    I have enjoyed reading your blog very much. I’m glad your son is recovering nicely from his recent surgery and I’m looking forward to more of your pantry posts.
    Your site has been an encouragement and a blessing to me.
