Most of the playgroups are currently on a break. Some will resume in January, but some will stay 'down' until after CNY.

Also there is Singing Speckled Frogs, again many locations around town but they are in the FC on Mondays:Singing Speckled Frogs is a baby and toddler singing group. Most of the children's ages range between six months and three years old (but all children and caregivers are welcome). These classes are informal. We sing familiar children's songs, play instruments, ditty-bop around a bit and enjoy one another's company. No reservations are required. Come whenever you are free. The cost is 80 rmb per family per session or 5 classes for 300 rmb to be taken at any time.
NEW LOCATION Ambassy Court which is located at 1500 Huaihai Zhong Lu, near Wulumuqi Lu. This class will be held in the basement aerobics room for Ambassy Club members. If you'd like to attend and you are not a member, please contact me before you come. The easiest way to enter the club with strollers is through the parking garage underneath the children's playground. Come in and continue to your left until you see/hear us:) 淮海中路1500号,近乌鲁木齐路.
Peas and Pods is also popular but I think they are only in Hongqiao (Fridays) and Lujiazui (Wednesdays).
Cack, my blog is buggered.
