What You'll Get
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 $39, you get a one-month membership with waived initiation fee plus unlimited open gym attendance (a $147 total value) at Gymboree Play & Music. This Groupon is redeemable for learning-filled fun at one of seven area locations: Source Mall, Plainview, Oakdale, Oceanside, Woodbury, St. James, and East Northport.
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 5-years-young wise wanderer. This deal is valid for rhythm-building music classes, imagination-expanding art classes, mobility-enhancing sports classes, Gymboree's most popular class, Play & Learn, plus all family classes. The month membership (usually $112, plus a $35 enrollment fee) allows you to take one class per week, with make-ups available during enrollment if you miss a class. This deal also includes unlimited attendance at Gymboree's open gym sessions (contact location for schedule), and you will 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 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. Enrollment can be transferred between all participating locations. 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 not valid for currently enrolled families.
