Many of the mummies I know in KL send their babies and kids to Gymboree. A friend is a member and had a free pass so a few of us brought our babies to the 0-6 months class to try it out. We sang songs, interacted with the babies, tried to get them to interact with each other, blew bubbles (I loved this part!) and played with a parachute too (I enjoyed this too!)

At the end of the class, Baby A and Baby Jerry had this look which said "Huh? What's going on here?"

My personal conclusion - While it was pretty fun, for almost RM2,000 which u need to pay a lump sum and upfront, for 48 classes to be used up within one year just to sing, play with puppets and blow bubbles, I rather just do it at home. Plus, its something I do at home with Baby A everyday anyway.

And when I run out of play ideas, one alternative is to go to Gymboree but pay for single classes. It costs RM48 per class and is almost 3 times more expensive compared to the price per class from the RM2,000 package, at least I don't need to have such a huge cash outlay and I can go as and when I want to which is not going to be as often as once a week for sure.

Haha, I don't believe in Gymboree either. You might want to sign her up for Kizsports later when she gets more mobile because they actually teach her some skills to improve her gross motor skills. Or you can do it at home, but you need to learn and see how they do it first. Go for trial class! The kids gain confidence with their climbing etc but they also become an occupational hazard in the house when they start practising the cool moves that they learned at school.

Many mummies swear by it tho. Maybe the classes for older kids are better and more worthwhile? I wanna check those out but feel slightly put off by how many babies and parents are there per class. I've seen Kizsport but have not checked them out. Thanks for suggesting it. How old do the kids need to be?
