We’re celebrating the 75th anniversary of Curious George with a very special prize pack for you.

After 75 years George is still just as curious as he was decades ago! You probably remember this mischievous little monkey from your own childhood. You spent days reading the books with your own mum, and maybe even cuddled up to the plush toy version of the character. Now your child is totally in love with George, and you’re getting to re-live your younger days.

Well, George is back — and the Emmy Award-winning TV series that chronicles this little cutie’s adventures is returning for an 8th season. The complete 8th season DVD pack features just about everything you’d expect (and maybe a few things you won’t!). It’s got an intergalactic trip to Mars, a visit to a toy factory and even a DIY guitar that George tried to build himself.

curious george 75th birthdayWhew! That curious monkey is sure having fun. Along with complete 8th season, George is still at it – having fun with friends. The Fun with Friends (as if you hadn’t already guessed that’s what it was called) pack features imaginative antics and all the sticky situations that George (and pals) can get into.

Okay, so George’s curiosity is always getting him into trouble (or at least putting him at the centre of hilariously funny scenes). But, what about your little monkey? As mums, we all know that there are those perfectly precious moments where our kiddos end up in super-silly situations. You giggle, you laugh and you take a mental picture to remember just how kind of crazy, but certainly sweet, your little one is.

You know your curious kid is hilarious, now show us! We’re looking for the best stories that feature how your child’s curiosity ended up in a silly situation. That’s right, we want to hear the ridiculous, hilarious and laugh-out-loud funny things that make you smile. Not only do you get to share your story, but you’ll be entered to win a prize pack that’s quite ‘Curious’!

    More of his adventures we would love to see.
    My daughter adores the man in the yellow hat,
    But mistakes him for George’s “Dad with a hat”
    Christmas monkey from the movie is a favourite song of hers,
    And can sing along with nearly every verse.
    She laughs and giggles along with the show,
    So she would adore and appreciate this pack I know.
    Thank you for the chance to win such a great prize,
    Generous in both content and in size.

    Grandad remained calm and gently turned her head down
    Slipped back out without a frown
    Little monkey scared us all
    But now is the least cheeky of them all
