This week we are proud to introduce one of our favorite resources for our West Coast readers: Red Tricycle! Red Tricycle is a free website and e-mail newsletter that strives to serve its readership by providing tons of ideas for cool things to see, eat, make, and do with their children locally; Red Tricycle is truly an invaluable tool for those who live in or visit the greater Seattle, Portland, San Francisco, Los Angeles, or San Diego areas!
Established in late 2005, Red Tricycle has been described as "a filter" to refine, review, and highlight the very best in local information of concern to parents. Offering everything from local newsbites to the best in dining, and kid-friendly attractions and activities, Red Tricycle's goal is obvious; to help parents have more fun with their kids. The free weekly e-mailed newsletter offers a glimpse of great local opportunities for families, while the website offers longer articles, contests, and links to fabulous products and parenting information! There are also links on each location's site for readers to submit their own photos, stories, and events.
Currently, Red Tricycle is holding their "Most Awesome Awards" (sponsored by Giggle.com), a chance for readers to nominate their favorite products, services, mom's club, deal site, etc.! In addition to helping to select the most awesome mom, baby and kid-related businesses around, participants are eligible to win some fabulous prizes including the Grand Prize: a $500 Gift Certificate to Giggle, 1st Prize: A Flip Video Camera (value $300) and 2nd Prize: A Large Organic Plush Winnie-the-Pooh (value $110).
We are thrilled to have been recognized by many of our loyal fans as their choice for "Most Awesome Kids Travel Accessory," and greatly appreciate everyone's nominations! (WARNING: shameless pitch ahead!) If you haven't already, we'd love to encourage you to visit Red Tricycle's site and cast your nomination for the Travel-Tot Travel Childproofing Kit! But even if you don't get a chance to nominate us, we highly recommend you check out Red Tricycle; whether you live on the West Coast, or are just visiting, there is a myriad of information that will help you enjoy your time there with your family!
Safe and happy travels!
