“Near the forfront of the next generation of parenting tools...Red Tricycle is not your mother's parenting aide. Readers are razr-phone-toting, book-club-joining moms who at least know what a blackberry is."

Seattle Post Intelligencer April 2006

Thank you for being so smart, clever and witty! I’m enjoying my subscription and appreciate what you’re doing.

Your information reads like YOU are having fun and that’s worth a lot! Thanks for many good ideas.

Get Out and Play

You likely jut did that whole marathon eating and drinking thing yesterday. (Vodka tonics helped a few readers we know play nice with the in-laws.) But, now it's time to get wholesome, active and out of the house. The ideas below should help inspire you.

Better than TV
big! the Musical
Ah, the heartwarming story of little Josh baskin wishing to be grown up...he quickly learns it's not as glamorous as it looks (duh, we could have told him that).
When: Nov 18 - Dec 4: Friday and Saturday, 8 pm (reserved seating); one Thursday performance at 7:30 (final week)
Info: 206.363.2809
Location: Civic Light Opera, 7400 San Point Way NE (Magnuson Park at NE 74th St.)
Tickets: From $25; kid's tickets are $5 less than adults. Appropriate for school-age children.

Artsy Fartsy
The Little Artist Studio drop-in classes.
Nuture Junior's inner Picasso by bringing him to the creative space upstairs at the Curious Kidstuff studio in West Seattle. He can express himself through collage or draw, paint and basically make a mess. Woo hoo, somebody else cleans up!
When: Mondays and Wednesdays, 9:30 - 10:30 am for ages one and up; 11:00 am - 12:00 pm for ages three and up
Location: 4740 California Ave. SW (between Alaska and Edmunds Sts.)

Nibble and Sip
The new bite-sized grilled cheese sandwiches at Purple Cafe and Wine Bar.
Culture the kids with sandwiches made from Spanish cheese and baguettes. Aged proscuitto can be added; sandwiches also come with house-made tomato basil soup. Oh, and ask for the milk flight - they serve caramel, chocolate, strawberry and regular milk in the style of a wine tasting.
What's in it for you: Purple has about 75 wines by the glass, enough said.
Locations: 14459 Woodinville-Redmond Road (near NE 145th St., in Hollywood Vineyards Shopping Center), Woodinville, 425.483.7129; and 323 Park Place, Kirkland (off of NE 85th St. in the Park Place Shopping Center), 425.828.3773
