“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.

Paint the Town Red (and Yellow and Blue!)

Next time you're at U-Village and Little One is just done with the whole idea of shopping, head over to Paint The Town to unleash his inner Leonardo. At this ceramics-painting-studio-cum-kiddie-oasis, your budding artistes get to select from hundreds of ceramic items to decorate as they please. Figurines of fairies, horses, cars & snakes are big hits with the preschool set while older kiddos gravitate to the trinket & treasure boxes. Adults dig the assortment of plates, bowls, platters, & mugs (although we won't tell anyone if you want to paint a unicorn).

Mom & studio owner Mary Anne Stusser is super kid-savvy, so smocks are provided and all of the paint is non-toxic & washable. Paint The Town 'helpers' (i.e. baby wranglers) are there to assist you in the process of making keepsake handprint/footprint pieces to display in your nursery or give as a gift (ask about booking a handprint/footprint party at your next playgroup or mom's club).

Birthday parties are a blast in their studio (leave the mess there), or you can take everything to your own location. Check out their weekday specials to score great deals such as "Wee-Ones Wednesday" and "2 for 1 Tuesdays". Or, sign up for one of the seven week-long summer camp sessions (for kids 6 -13) in July and August. Kids will enjoy a world of crafts including paper mache and beading projects. Whether you're there for a party, camp, or just to paint with your Little One, Paint The Town's staff provides plenty of friendly one-on-one assistance & painting tips to help you with your creation.
