“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

Snippety Crickets!

Pamela Smith, a hairstylist at The Original Children's Shop's recently re-launched haircut studio (at the back of the clothing store), has done a lot of fix-up haircuts in her years of cutting children's hair. She's seen all types of home haircut attempts from parents, grandparents and even siblings.

In her able hands–or those of LaTonya Miller, another savvy stylist at the shop–kids will get anything but a bowl cut or crooked bangs. Stylists Smith and Miller came over from the now-closed Hair Chair outpost in the University Village. For $25 they will wash, cut, dry and style Little One's hair. Hopefully, Little One will agree to a wash because the teeny yellow-and-periwinkle salon uses the amazing-smelling products from the NYC-based So Cozy line. Little tykes can sit in the fab Ferrari chair while bigger kids get a barber chair. Toys, books or DVDs are on hand to help stretch attention spans to a whopping ten minutes or so. Even Flowbee can't compete with that.

Between 42nd and 43rd Ave.
