Kids, like tomatoes, grow on their own and bruise when squeezed too hard with a set of tongs. Coddle your human tomatoes with today's Groupon to Gymboree Play & Music in Strongville, Beachwood/South Euclid, or Mentor. Choose between two options:
For $39, you get four parent and child classes (a $60 value), the initiation fee (a $35 value), and $25 in Gymbucks toward Gymboree clothing.
For $49, you get four two-hour, drop-off school skills classes (a $99 value), the initiation fee (a $35 value), and $50 in Gymbucks toward Gymboree clothing.
Gymboree Play & Music 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. Parent and child sessions include four weeks of one class a week of your choice, including rhythm-building music classes, imagination-expanding art classes, and Gymboree's most popular class, play & learn.
Ankle biters age 3¬–5 transitioning from preschool to present school can avail themselves of four school skills classes (a $99 value). Each session provides both individual and group-based activities designed to nurture social and emotional skills, enhance cooperative play, reduce separation anxiety, and let down kids easy when their napping mats are exchanged for abacuses. 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). Check online for the schedule for the South Euclid, Strongsville, and Mentor locations. Access to Open Play Gyms are also included for both options, depending on location.
In addition to classes, Groupon holders will receive $25 Gymbucks and a Gymboree welcome kit with three 20% off coupons good toward any purchase from Gymboree's clothing store. Sift through pint-sized picnic outfits, boys' pajamas, and more to differentiate between your teething little ones and an angsty teen who has taken to gnawing on the remote control.

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.
