Until just a couple year ago I was unaware of what Gymboree even was. I had a good friend that was always ranting about the clothing so I decided to take a trip to the mall to see for myself. I purchased a shirt for my then 5 year old right at two years ago. The shirt was lime green with a fuzzy panda on the front. It had 3/4 sleeves and a scoop neck line. The most adorable shirt I have ever seen!
To this day even though she wore it probably 1000 times and has since passed it on to a family member...IT STILL LOOKS NEW! Stains are so easy to remove and the clothing shows no signs of wear what so ever thanks to a few helpful type from Gymboree addicted mommies I have encountered. The trick is to not throw them in the dryer so the clothing gets hung on hangers in the bathroom to air dry.
I absolutely love Gymboree now and have to say that my daughters wardrobe is now about 95% Gymboree because of the great quailty and style they offer. New lines are always coming out and each one seems to be cuter then the last. Gymboree also has great resale value if you are one of those frugal mommies that likes to get money back for things you already use. The part I love most about Gymboree though....all the great sales!:) If you are searching for a high quality clothing line for your children that is durable and affordable then go buy just one piece of Gymboree and see what you think about it.
The shirt I am referring to is no longer available in stores as it is an old line, but if you look on eBay you will find plenty of the same one if you are interested in trying that specific one out which I do recommend doing!
