Gymboree: 30% Off Everything – Gymboree Circle Of Friends Starts Thursday!.

I thought I would share the 30% coupon off everything at Gymboree. Good for online and in-store purchases. They are doing their Circle of Friends savings. You can earn Gymbucks during this promo. Promo starts this Thursday, 9/1 through 9/5. Great deals to be had if you can find things you like in the clearance racks and take that additional 30% off.

Tip: You can at certain stores, shop the day before and place your selections on hold for purchase the next day. You have to inquire about that though. Hope no one gets upset that I tipped you all to this.

Kids.Woot® : One Day, You’ll Understand™.

My son loves cars…as in he lives and breathes cars. Of course, I snatched up a pair of these remote control rice rockets. Two frequencies available in four different vehicles (1:16): Mazda RX8, Infinite G37, Mitsubishi Eclipse and a Chrysler ME412 (technically not a rice rocket) for only $9.99 today at

What is not to like about these when they come with spoilers, decals, spinners, and working lights and doors? There will be a whole lot of screaming excitement come Christmas morning at our house this year when M and P hold cars races around our house.

About the Toys”R”Us Differently-Abled Guide – Toys “R” Us.

The 2011 toy guide for special needs children has been just released. This is a great resource if you are shopping and need help finding appropriate toys that won’t frustrate children during their play. I really like how they arrange the guide so that you can shop by specific skills. I found the accompanying text with each featured toy helpful in describing exactly what skills each toy teaches and reinforces.

Laser Tagging Inc. Deal of the Day | Groupon San Jose.

Who doesn’t love laser tag? I love it even though I am a horrible shot, but apparently I make a great target for everyone else. $9 for two games at Laser Tagging in Newark. How fun to do this with older kids or adults who are kids at heart. There is also a $24 package that includes 4 games of laser tag and 4 rounds of laser-maze challenge which is a great family deal. This might even be a pretty good team building exercise as long as no one takes it too seriously.
