“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

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

Sweet Savings
flora and henri
When the posh children's clothier flora and henri puts its clothes on sale next weekend, we suggest dropping everything to go. There will be pony rides (no joke), delish hot cocoa and crafts. And, everything in the store will be 30% off. Boo yah!

Pssst ... did you know? The company also has an outlet store at 808 East Roy St., only open Monday through Friday from 9 am - 5 pm. Phone: 206.749.0004. If you don't score at the sale, try the outlet.

Another posh boutique for children, Plum, is marking down some of its impeccably made Italian and French winter shoes and boots from Naturino, Mod8, Pom d'Api and Primigi. Look for savings up to 30% off.
When: Tuesday, December 6, from 10 am to 5 pm
Location: 2913 E Madison St. (between Martin Luther King Jr. Way and Lake Washington Blvd.)

Sleeping Beauty

Artsy Fartsy
Imagine Children's Museum*

It's Kids' Night Out-no, not Kids Gone Wild-at the famed children's museum in Everett! That means you and your sig. O get to drop the little devils off and do something "adult" like go to a quiet dinner. The theme of the evening is appropriately Winter Wonderland. Kids make snowmen and snow globes, play games such as the snowball relay and eat wintry snacks. Come 9 pm, they should be exhausted and ready for a blissful slumber where they just may dream of sugarplum fairies. Recommended for ages four to 12. You must pre-register.
When: Saturday, December 3, 6 to 9 pm
Info.: 425.258.1006 ext. 1012
