My son was MONKEY CRAZY at age 2. We read Curious George books, watched the PBS show, and saw the movie. He was not monkeying around come birthday time. He went banannas for this Curious George inspired birthday party!

    Ours are stacked in our garage. That's the nice thing about furniture made out of pickle buckets! LOL They are kind of a pain to make, but once you have them the hard work is over. I also love the fact that they can grow with the size of the kids. If the table is too low or the stool too short, just add another pickle bucket to give it lift. FABULOUS!

    Hi! I got the Man in the Yellow Hat costume from Ebay. A friend had the Curious George costume my daughter is wearing. Luke, the birthday boy, is wearing an outfit from Gymboree and a C.G. mask from the party store. I would try eBay first if you are looking for any of these costumes. Thanks for asking! Happy holidays, Christina

    Hi Michelle! I wish I could give you an exact answer, but I actually "borrowed" the trees from my friend's mother-in-law. She has them throughout her home. While she vacationed in FL for the winter, my friend Paula and I took Paula's mini-van over to her MIL's house and we cleaned her out for the party! lol I am sure you can find them at stores like Target http://www.target.com/s?searchTerm=artificial+ficus+tree&category=0%7CAll%7Cmatchallany%7Call+categories or Home Depot http://www.homedepot.com/webapp/wcs/stores/servlet/Search?keyword=ficus+tree&selectedCatgry=SEARCH+ALL&langId=-1&storeId=10051&catalogId=10053&Ntpc=1&Ntpr=1 However, I think your best bet is to ask family and friends. I bet you will find a few to "borrow" on your own. Happy hunting! Christina
