Treat your little boy to a grown-up barber experience. The University Barbershop is the creation of Joshua Kingston, DJ, producer, and barber. He even won the Barber Battle, a Pacific Northwest meeting of all the best barbers around. That’s some serious haircut bragging rights.

Need to check your bikes, or get a new one for your smallest cyclists? More Bikes has a good selection of quality kids bikes. Yes, they’re more than your average Canadian Tire bike, but they’ll also be much easier to ride. That means a trail riding partner in Pacific Spirit Park this summer, if they’re big enough. There are free bike tune-up classes running during March, May, June and July, at the Old Barn Community Centre too.

The Perfect 10 Nail Spa does pedicures on little toes, including little nail art as well. I know my son loves coming in to get his nails painted along with me, so book yourselves both in for a nice foot soak and foot massage with lotion.
