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 (an $89 value) with waived initiation fee (a $40 value) plus unlimited open gym attendance at Gymboree Play & Music (a $129 total value). You'll also receive a certificate for $25 off of a $50 minimum purchase of Gymboree clothing. This Groupon is redeemable for learning-filled fun at two locations: Marine Park and Bay Ridge. Enrollment is valid at both locations.
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 classes are available for the freshly born sapling to the five-years-young wise wanderer. This deal includes rhythm-building music classes, imagination-expanding art classes, social-butterflying “school skills” classes for three- to five-year-olds, and Gymboree's most popular class, Play & Learn. The month-long membership allows you to take one class per week, with make-ups available during enrollment if you miss a class. View class schedules online for the Marine Park and Bay Ridge locations. This deal also includes unlimited attendance at Gymboree's open gym sessions (contact location for schedule), and you will receive a $25 certificate (requiring a $50 minimum purchase) for Gymboree clothing purchased online or at a Gymboree clothing store.
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 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 or toys; it is also not valid for current members or families enrolled on or after July 2009. The $25 clothing certificate is only valid for purchases of $50 or more and is issued upon Groupon redemption. Reservations are required for classes.
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.
