“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.

Let's Get Ready to Tumble

Sure you've got your days filled with wading pools and playgrounds right now. Come October, you'll be begging us for more indoor play space ideas. Ladies and Gentleman, we've got a contender.

Welcome Dizzy's Bus Stop, brainchild of Dizzy Fukutomi, mom of three and owner of Dizzy's Tumblebus (the super-cute school bus full of gym activities that's been showing up at birthday parties, festivals, and preschools around Seattle the past five years).

The Bus Stop, a large play space with a school bus theme and gorgeous murals with Northwest scenes, like Pike Place Market and the Space Needle, is an extension of the tumblebus concept. It offers an array of fun movement classes for Little Ones including tumbling/gymnastics, yoga, and ballet. Saturday morning classes are a great alternative for working parents and blocks of time are available for birthday parties (one private party at a time, since kids really aren't fans of sharing) on Fridays, Saturdays, and Sundays. A recreational therapist will lead a class called "social group" for kids with autism and PDD. Open Play times are set aside throughout the week - open to class members and the public (depending on space availability, reservations recommended).

P.S.Mention Red Tricycle for $50 off a birthday party package at the Bus Stop (if reservation is made during August) or $10 off the $30 annual membership fee.
