We had a birthday party at this Gymboree and it was a huge success. It was worth every penny because they take all the work out of planning your child's birthday. From sending out invitations, to providing goodie bags this is the place to go.
An instructor is provided to lead the children in supervised play. It was so nice to be able to watch the kids, without feeling stressed. All I did was pick up some cake and ice cream to serve in the room provided for us.
It's not cheap, but I felt it was worth the money.
We have never done the regular classes at Gymboree because they are so expensive.
