We LOVE Curious George! Bug still loves Thomas the Train and pirates but his new FAVORITE is Curious George! (He’s even decided he wants his next birthday party to be Curious George!) Thanks to Netflix we alllllll the episodes of the Curious George TV show on PBS and we have a dozen Curious George books (some classics and some newer ones) and we have to read one every night!
When I was asked if we would review the NEW Curious George movie, Curious George Swings into Spring, I answered with a resounding YES! FedEx could not have delivered on a more perfect day either. We were having one of those days, you know, days where nothing was going right, Bug couldn’t find anything to do except whine, and Mommy was going bonkers. Then FedEx knocked and our whole day got better!
Bug was SUPER excited about his new “George movie”. So we watched it….twice. It’s a cute movie and everything you’ve come to expect from Curious George plus some new stuff (like songs!). I think I’m still a bigger fan of Curious George in short TV story format but Bug is happy with his movie and that makes Mommy happy too.
George and his best friend, Hundley, explore all the wonders of the season together— including blooming flowers, baby animals and canoe rides. But when Hundley loses his way, George takes to the skies to find his pal, in a wild adventure that ends with a very fun surprise!
Even though this movie is in they style of the newer Curious George books and TV shows, if you’ve ever read the classic Curious George and the Hot Air Balloon you will notice the similarities.
