“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

Rockabye Baby

gYou once dreamt of being a rock star. Now's your chance - in a new, stylish Sleepytime Rocker, you can lull Baby to sleep while singing ballads of your own creation. Collective in Ballard is currently taking pre-orders for the luxurious rocking chairs and will start shipping in the New Year.

The roomy beauties (38" H x 30" W) have a high back where Mom or Dad's head can rest and a supportive pillow to protect that aching back. Pick from one of three fabrics and a rainbow of colors: mocha, slate, walnut, brick, poppy and more. Rockers run $850 each; shipping and delivery are extra. Wait times vary from a few weeks to a few months, depending on stock. But, be patient, you'll soon be rockin' with sass ... just beware the temptation to get another spiky, Joan Jett-inspired haircut.
