Gadabout Reviewed in McSweeney's - The Believer

McSweeney's The Believer - review of Curio & Co.'s Gadabout TM 1050

Curio & Co. just received some really exiting news.

When we presented the Gadabout TM 1050 at the Comic-Con last year, we kept hearing about the Time Travel Mart and how we should get in contact with them since the book would be a great fit for their shop.  So, we did, and it was. The book was picked up and we had the opportunity to visit the shop and we laughed our pants off when we were in the store.  They have some really fun stuff.  If you haven't been it's worth a trip.

As we did some research we found out that the Time Travel Mart is the shop for 826 LA (a non profit writing and tutoring center) which is connected to the McSweeney's.  Needless to say it was a great pat on the back.

A couple of weeks back we were contacted by The Believer magazine. They said "Congratulations on the incredibly well-deserved positive buzz surrounding the Gadabout TM 1050 User's Manual!" and wanted to know more about the project as they were hoping to write a review on it.

Yesterday we heard back from him and… the June issue of  McSweeney's Believer Magazine will have a review of the Gadabout.

We are really, really exited and honored to have the chance to be reviewed by a magazine whose readers' interests are so closely related to ours.

Can't wait to have the issue in my hands.
