On Monday the peanut and I went to a Gymboree class! I knew that at Gymboree he could climb on stuff, and he LOVES to climb, so I thought it would be a perfect match. Not so much. The class was 45 minutes long, and about 30 minutes of that was free play. The peanut was not so into playing. He just chewed on a ball, and stared at the other kids. I would even put him on the equipment, but he just stared.

We did sing some songs together, and played with a parachute. The bad part of this was that at any given time half of the kids were screaming, and the other half were wondering around. It was chaos! And to top it all off, the class is $68 a MONTH! I think I was expecting something really great because it was so expensive. (We got our first class for free) Sadly I don't think we will be returning.

Has anyone else tried Gymboree classes? Did I just go on a bad day?

Leah loved Gymboree but refused to participate in any of the organized songs/games (she was 3 at the time). She just wanted to run and play free-style on all the cool equipment. I think it's a good program for kids around 4 or 5 to start learning class participation, etc. Obviously it works for some families -- they've been around for over 20 years! But it was a waste for us. Save your money and go to a playground! ~~ Amy (oaks)
