What I already knew about my children was only reinforced last weekend as we tried to go outside and take some photos of Gymboree’s new Hop ‘N’ Roll line of playwear for kids.
I believe it goes something like, “A child in motion tends to stay in motion.”
Yeah, true story.
In fact, just about every photo opportunity I saw disappeared before I could catch it because these kids were ready to move. You can hardly blame them, though. The sun was shining, the breeze was blowing, and the world outside the four walls of our living room was theirs….finally.
I’ll admit, I started out barking at them to stand still, be quiet, smile pretty, pose (“Mommy needs photos!”) …but I quickly realized that I was no match for the warm spring air and energy of the day. But that’s OK, because kids weren’t made for standing still, and these clothes weren’t either. Gymboree designed them specifically to keep up with the rhythm of play, so play they did!
From this one, in her striped flutter sleeve dress, who had forgotten what it feels like to have the grass between her toes
…to this one, in the T-Rex High Five Tee, who couldn’t stop climbing everything in sight.
All price points for this line are really reasonable, so you can feel good about letting your kids actually hop and roll in them. (But you’ll still find the details you love about Gymboree, like smocking, ruffles and fun graphics.) We shopped the Kid Boy and Baby Girl collections, but the mix & match styles are available for both boys and girls in sizes 6mos – 10.

Here’s the rest of our Hop ‘N’ Roll haul.
Playdates, playgrounds, daycare – the kids can wear these clothes anywhere. I love them because they’re durable, cute and coordinated, and the kids love them because, well, who wouldn’t love an Intergalactic Pizza Delivery Spaceship, right?
Or a soft, cozy sweatshirt in the best color for avoiding stains? (Fist bump to Gymboree for that.)
Everyone Deserves to Play
In addition to helping your kids have a better day of play, Gymboree has partnered with KaBOOM!, a national non-profit organization that works to ensure that kids in all communities have a place to play and be active. A portion of the proceeds from Hop ‘N’ Roll sales will benefit KaBOOM! and help them reach their goal of building a place to play for 10,000 deserving kids in 2015.
Playing is much more fun when we all do it together!
