What You'll Get
Jangle keys in front of a child and he'll giggle for hours; teach a child to turn the keys in the ignition and he'll grow up, get a job, and drive himself to the key factory. Accelerate maturation with today's deal: for $35, you get a one-month membership, including four classes, initiation fee, and unlimited open-gym attendance at Gymboree Play & Music in Webster Groves (up to a $114 total value).
Gymboree 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 45-minute classes are available for every age, from the freshly born sapling to the 5-years-young wise wanderer. The one-month membership allows one class per week, with make-ups available during enrollment if you miss a class. Pick from rhythm-building music classes, imagination-expanding art classes, and Gymboree's most popular class, Play & Learn, which promotes problem-solving skills through games and trigonometry tests.
Along with the controlled exuberance of the class sessions, membership lets tots bounce around in unlimited open-gym sessions, scheduled throughout the week. Open gym allows for unhindered exploration of the play floor and a chance for wee ones to swap stock tips with other attendees.
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).

About Gymboree Play and Music
In 1976, Joan Barnes—a Californian mom frustrated with the lack of spaces where she could take her kids for safe and age-appropriate play time—took matters into her own hands and founded Gymboree Play and Music. In the decades since Gymboree’s founding, Joan’s vision of a safe place where youngsters could build confidence and creativity has come to fruition and spread to 30 countries around the globe. Staffed by attentive and expertly trained instructors, each Gymboree outpost adheres to a curriculum of activities designed by experts to foster the development of children’s’ cognitive, physical, and social skills through structured play and close readings of Goodnight Moon. The staffers also conduct entertaining classes that cover subjects ranging from music to sports, imparting valuable lessons of imagination and physical activity to developing minds. To further set apart her business, Barnes employed nationally renowned playground designer Jay Beck to design the proprietary play equipment at her centers.
