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 $32, you get a one-month membership with waived initiation fee plus unlimited open gym attendance (a $100 total value) at Gymboree Play & Music. 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 the Fort Union Boulevard location. This Groupon is not valid for families enrolled after April 1, 2010.
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 includes rhythm-building music classes, mobility-enhancing sports classes, and Gymboree's most popular class, Play & Learn. The month membership 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 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.
