Jangle keys in front of a child and he'll giggle for hours; teach a child to turn the keys in the ignition and he'll grow up, get a job, and drive himself to the key factory. Accelerate maturation with today's Groupon: for $45, you get two months of classes (a $178 value), a waived enrollment fee (a $40 value), and unlimited open-gym attendance at Gymboree Play & Music.

Gymboree offers a bevy of baby-engaging classes in which parents and wee ones work together to build tots' creativity and encourage development through play. Weekly classes are available for every age from the freshly born sapling to the 5-years-young wise wanderer. This deal includes rhythm-building music classes, imagination-expanding art classes, and Gymboree's most popular class, Play & Learn. The two-month membership (a $178 value) allows you to take one class per week, with makeups available during enrollment if you miss a class. This Groupon also includes unlimited attendance at Gymboree's open-gym sessions (contact location for schedule), plus the enrollment fee (a $40 value), which is waived should you choose to enroll for additional months beyond your Groupon.
One Groupon must be purchased for each child, and each child must be accompanied by at least one adult (but more than one adult is welcome). The 45-minute classes help build an everlasting bond that will feel like being tethered to each other with Ethernet cable.
Gymboree Play & Music
When Joan Barnes founded Gymboree Play & Music in 1976, she envisioned a facility where parents and children could play together in a safe and age-appropriate environment. In the following decades, Gymboree Play & Music spread to more than 30 countries across the globe, helping youngsters from infants to 5 years old develop cognitive, physical, and social skills. The company's instructors lead classes such as Play & Learn, its flagship course, in which parents and kids move through a seven-level program filled with storytelling, play activities, and debates on the merits of sandwich crust. Talented staffers also prep youngsters for school and foster development in areas such as music, art, and sports. Throughout all classes, they make use of custom play equipment designed by acclaimed playground designer and seesaw-tamer Jay Beck.
