Clothes protect us from the elements, just as umbrellas protect us from butterflies throwing tiny water balloons. Help kids avoid spontaneous baths with today's Groupon: for $20, you get $40 worth of youth apparel, accessories, and sports equipment at Groms. Choose from the following five locations: Bayview Avenue in Toronto, Queen Street East in Toronto, Simcoe, Oakville, and Port Dover.
Groms outfits youngsters sizes 6 months to youth 16 with an array of surf-, snow-, and skate-related apparel from brands such as Volcom, Quiksilver, and Billabong. Kids can dress for afternoons surfing on apple-juice oceans in a graphic T-shirt ($20), or go sand-castle hopping in a pair of flip-flops ($15). Backpacks ($40) tag along during half-pipe runs, and skateboards ($100) roll down neighbourhood sidewalks and under neighbourhood limbo bars. Expert staff members are on-hand to help style rookies pick out the skate park's hippest looks, while parents relax and enjoy the satisfaction of being considered cool until the next family vacation to the Tupperware factory.
