Curious George Party Supplies – The Background
Curious George Party Supplies are based on Curious George, a brown curious monkey named George. It is a character of a popular children’s books series by the same name. The series is written by Margret Rey and Hans Augusto Rey. Curious George’s home was in Africa. But he is brought to a big city by a man with a yellow hat, and he now lives with him.
Curious George’s first story was published in 1939 in France. The name of the story was Cecily G. and the Nine Monkeys and in the story the name of George was Fifi. This story was not the part of Curious George series. In it Curious George appeared just as a character. The story was illustrated and written by H.A. Rey.
The adventures of Curious monkey George have been translated all over the world in many languages. In different countries George is known by different names. In Italy he is “Curioso come George”. In Denmark he is “Peter Pedal”. In Norway he is “Nysgjerrige Nils”. In Sweden he is “Nicke Nyfiken”. In Finland he is “Utelias Vili”. In Israel he is “Choni Ha’Sakran”. In Spanish speaking countries he is “Jorge el Curioso”.
Curious George is referred as a monkey in the text in all the books. But in the illustrations he does not appear exactly as a monkey. He does not have a tail and looks more like an ape such as a gorilla or a chimpanzee. But we should remember that some species of monkeys, like the Barbary macaque, have very small or no tail. Kids love monkeys and they love Curious George Party Supplies.
The Curious George series is drawn and written by the team of Margret Rey and Hans Augusto Rey. When they fled to Paris on self-made bicycles in June 1940, they carried the manuscript of Curious George with them. At that time a huge number of children’s books were authored by female authors. So to differentiate their books, only Hans Augusto Rey was credited for the work initially. Later Margret Rey was credited for the writing and Hans Rey for the illustrations. Although the couple has created a large number of other children’s books, their most popular books were the Curious George series. In the last six decades the series has been continuously re-edited. Houghton Mifflin of Boston is the current publisher in the United States.
During H.A. Rey’s lifetime, the duo released seven Curious George series books. Curious George was released in 1941. Curious George Takes a Job was released in 1947. Curious George Rides a Bike was released in 1952. Curious George Gets a Medal was released in 1957. Curious George Flies a Kite was released in 1958. Curious George Learns the Alphabet was released in 1963. And Curious George Goes to the Hospital was released in 1966. More recently, Houghton Mifflin has been releasing more Curious George books. These include board books that contain scenes from the original books, books adapted from the 1980s Curious George telefilm series, and new adventures.
The first book in this series depicts the life of George in Africa and his capture by the man who wears yellow hat. He captures George to take him to a big city where he would be living in the zoo. In the second book of the series George is living in the zoo, but he escapes from there. Then the book depicts many adventures of George before the man catches him. Instead of putting him back in the zoo, he decides to keep him in his house. The rest of the books in the series depict the adventures of George while he lives in the house.
Between 1984 and 1993 and second series of Curious George books appeared that were based on the Curious George telefilm series. The books were edited by Alan J. Shalleck and Margret Rey. Most of the books are out of print now, although some of them have been re-released with re-designed covers.
In 1998, the third series of Curious George books, “New Adventures” was launched. Many artists including Martha Weston, Anna Grossnickle Hines, Mary O’Keefe Young and Vipah Interactive have illustrated the books and have tried to use the style of H. A. Rey.
In 1980, a series of Curious George animated TV films were produced. The series was co-written and produced by Alan Shalleck.
On September 4, 2006, a new series of Curious George TV films debuted on PBS Kids.
on February 2, 2006, a Curious George video game was released. The game is published by Namco and Monkey Bar Games which is a division of Vicious Cycle Software, has developed it.
In the movie Forrest Gump it is shown that Curious George is Forrest’s favorite book. His mother reads the book to him. In the opening scene he stores a feather in the book and at the end the feather falls out of the book and floats through the air again.
In Harvard Square, Cambridge, Massachusetts, there is a children’s bookstore by the name of Curious George. It was formerly known as Curious George Goes To Wordsworth. The store carries a lot of licensed Curious George merchandise. Wordsworth Books was a local general-interest bookstore. In the early 2000s it got closed, but this bookstore is its last remaining property.
Curious George Party Supplies – The Options
You may select Basic Party Pack from our Curious George Party Supplies. It includes all the stuff you need for 8 guests. Or you may go with the Deluxe Party Pack from our Curious George Kids Party Supplies. It has much more items than the Curious George Basic Pack. The Curious George deluxe pack is also for 8 guests. If you need favor boxes as well, I would suggest you to choose the combination of Deluxe Party Pack & 8 Favor Boxes from our Curious George Party Supplies. It would cost you much more if you purchase them separately. If you think that the number of guests may exceed 8 you should consider Curious George Party Pack Add-On. It contains extra items for the extra guests. You may order Curious George Party Favor Boxes separately as well.
I’ve personally used Curious George Party Supplies for my kid’s birthday and through my personal experience I would recommend it to all Curious George lover kids. Because, birthdays are the perfect time for monkey business, especially when Curious George is invited!
