“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.

New Drop Off and Saturday Programs at Dizzy's Bus Stop
This super-cool Bellevue play space just keeps getting better with two new programs parents (and kids) will love. The Bus Stop & Go program rocks! Three mornings a week parents can drop off kiddos for up to 3 hours; teachers keep them busy with crafts, tumbling, story time, games, and more (18 months - 6 years) $10/hour for the first child and $5/hour for siblings. The Guided Park & Play session is great for busy working parents (especially Dads); every Saturday from 9am - 11am, teachers lead kids in games and activities and teach the parents how to use the tumbling equipment with their child. Reservations are recommended, but not required. Cost is $10/child.
Mention Red Tricycle in January for a 10% discount.
