“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

What a Ride!

hhMerry Go Round...Happy name, happy shopping. Merry Go Round has been a one-stop shop for all things 'baby' (and child) in the Seattle area for over 50 years. Owner Bob Pressey says, "You can walk into our store and go home with everything you need to bring home your baby." Bath supplies, child-proofing, pumps, diaper bags & name it, they've got it. You can also register for it!

We love the fabulous furniture selections in all price ranges such as Rumble Tuff, Oeuf, Natart and Million Dollar Baby (don't let the name fool you -- it's surprisingly affordable), just to name a few. Peruse beautiful clothing options from Paris Cheri, Fig Organics & plush Babylicious sleepsacks. Rely on MGR's staff to help you make an educated selection on all that "gear" out there such as carseats & strollers. (You can even park Little One in their fenced-in playspace while you take a Bugaboo stroller for a quick spin through the store.) Pick up a Haba Toy or the Boon Animal Bag (an ingenious stuffed animal storage/beanbag chair) for your next birthday gift and watch everyone swoon.

MGR's owners have been in the biz for many years and have watched baby trends come & go. So, what's hot now? They say top new sellers are baby seats by Bumbo or Bebe Pod, glass bottles, and anything organic (toys, clothes, and even a mattress). MGR is the exclusive local carrier of the uber-cool Orbit Travel System , Jeeto canvas prints, and Capretti furniture.

Scoop: Be on the lookout this summer for a new line of vintage trikes from Kettler (including a red tricycle we can't wait to see)! With beautiful displays, huge selections, and so much to see, you'll want to keep wandering around and around and around...put another quarter in the carousel-we want to keep going!
