“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.

Opposites Attract

Black and White. Yin and Yang. Bert and Ernie. Sweet and Sassy! It's true that opposites attract and Bothell's newest children's boutique is no exception. Bella and Max is the perfect mix of sweet, adorable clothing for your little one as well as plenty of sassy 'attitude' garments for days when you want to parent with a sense of humor. Sweet: Beautiful clothing from local RT faves such as Nest, Kate Quinn Organics, See Kai Run, and BabyLegs.

We also love their selections from Rabbit Moon and Gwen Stefani's new line- Harajuku Lovers. Sassy: Hilarious "statement" t-shirts and onsies. We like the ones by Urban Smalls, with slogans like "Nobody Puts Baby In The Corner" and "My Mom's a Fox" as well as clever tees by Rebel Ink Baby and rock star shirts by Sour Puss. You'll also find novel gift ideas like the Sassafras Cookie Baking Kit and gorgeous keepsake mommy jewelry, as well as must-have items like the award-winning Stranger Safety DVD, a brilliant collaboration between Julie Clark, founder of The Baby Einstein Company, and John Walsh, host of America's Most Wanted.

This Fall, be on the lookout for fresh lines from Neige, Germany's Roma e Toska, and Australia's PaperWings. So, how opposite are the store's namesakes? Well, Bella is the sweet daughter of the store's owner (and the inspiration for the store). And, Max? Well, he's actually the cat (and we're told he can really cop an attitude)!

Hair Salon:
Bella and Max has a kids' hair salon upstairs which uses child-friendly, tear-free hair product from Circle of Friends in scrumptious flavors like root-beer, banana and raspberry. Little One can sit in a Blue Angels jet or a pink or black Cadillac while they get a trim.
