“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.

Fantastic Photo Op

You have ton of photos and video of Little One to share with your far-flung family, but you never seem to get around to pulling it all together. Enter Smilebox, an online service that packages photos, videos and music into cool templates that allow you to deliver personalized online greetings in a snap. Smilebox, headquartered in Redmond, is a new communication medium that founder Andrew Wright calls "creative messaging." How does it work? Hundreds of design options are categorized by occasions -- including Baby, Birthday and Mother's Day, of course. You can choose from myriad styles, including postcards, scrapbooks and slideshows. All have music and motion. The site is very user-friendly (they're still working on Mac compatibility). The hardest part might be choosing from among the hundreds of adorable designs. Once you've found your favorite, upload your photos or videos, use the simple editing tools, type in your lucky recipients' email addresses, and enjoy. Oh, and guess what? It's free. Or, you can opt for the very reasonably-priced Premium Design (costs less than a greeting card!) and be able to choose from hundreds of background songs, plus loads of other benefits. With a Club Smilebox subscription, you have unlimited access to all of the premium design benefits. Say cheese!
