Kids, like tomatoes, grow on their own and bruise when squeezed too hard with a set of tongs. Today’s Groupon lets you coddle your human tomatoes: for $35, you get a one-month membership with a waived initiation fee plus unlimited open gym attendance at Gymboree Play & Music (up to a $128 total value). This Groupon is redeemable for learning-filled fun at one of 11 locations: Lakeview, Lincoln Park, Skokie, South and West Loop, Glen Ellyn, Northbrook, Orland Hills, Vernon Hills, Geneva, Crystal Lake, or Dyer, Indiana.
Gymboree offers a bevy of baby-engaging classes in which parents and wee ones work together to build the tot's creativity and encourage development through play. Weekly 45-minute classes are available for the freshly born sapling to the five-years-young wise wanderer. This deal includes rhythm-building music classes, mobility-enhancing sports classes, art classes, family classes, and Gymboree's most popular class, Play & Learn. The month membership allows you to take one 45-minute class per week, with make-ups available during enrollment if you miss a class. You will also receive a $25 discount on Gymboree clothing with a $50 purchase.
One Groupon must be purchased for each child, and each child must be accompanied by at least one adult (but additional adults are welcome). The 45-minute classes help to build an everlasting bond that will feel like being tethered to each other with Ethernet cable. Bond with your baby, or exercise childlike energy in a public forum.
This deal is not valid for birthday parties, toys, or school skills classes; also may be used by currently enrolled families only to add an additional class to existing enrollment.
Gymboree Play & Music
In 1976, busy California mother Joan Barnes wanted nothing more than to find a play place where she and her kids could enjoy age-appropriate, educational activities. Finding none, she developed her own innovative play environment within a developmental-based program structure now known as Gymboree Play & Music. Today, kids tumble and learn in more than 650 locations in 33 countries around the world, engaging in open play and classes designed to build cognitive and motor skills. As parents participate in their children's development, their kids learn to paint, play music, and interact socially outside of their preschool knitting circles.
