The Tumble Time Xpress is a local business that is home to the beloved Tumble Time bus and Tumble Time Train that most of us have seen traversing the streets of Contra Costa. The brightly colored bus provides educational classes, based in play, for children as young as a toddler through 8 years old. The bus, and their team of educational leaders, visit local preschools, elementary schools, and hosts ‘pop-up’ events where parents can enjoy a cup of coffee, go shopping, or enjoy a break. At the same time, their children immerse themselves in the joyful adventure of the Tumble Time Bus.
Safe At Home Doesn’t Slow Down The Tumble Time Bus
Like many other local businesses, when the “Safe At Home” mandates came through the county, the Tumble Time Xpress has to put their bus, and the train, into storage. Owner, Karentina Fujinaga, knew that she couldn’t just close down. She decided she would bring the Tumble Time Bus to her students without the bus!
Safe At Home Promotions
Karentina and the team at Tumble Time Xpress have brought several options to families looking for fun, educational and safe ways for the kids to spend the endless hours at home.
Social Media Videos!
Karentina is going LIVE on both Facebook and Instagram regularly. During this period, she brings as many aspects of the Tumble Time Xpress experience to kids in the safety of their homes. With a little help from the parents to get set up, Karentina will lead students through obstacle courses, songs, stories, and sign-language classes. Not only is this free for everyone, it gives parents a moment reprieve while also creating a period of play, exploration, learning, and normalcy to the kids.
The Tumbe Time Xpress website also has gift certificates available. This is a way you can gift the Tumble Time experience! Gift certificates can be used to pay for regularly scheduled classes, put towards a birthday party, or pay for a subscription box.
To learn more about online activities, make sure you follow Tumble Time Xpress on both Facebook and Instagram.
Tumble Time Xpress Subscription Box
Tumble Time is also rolling out a Subscription Box families can sign up for during our extended Shelter-In-Place mandates. These new boxes provide children the flexibility, music awareness, motor skills, and play they would get inside the Bus. However, the activities are delivered to your doorstep in a box! Children will get to sift through a box of surprises and find a book, ASL cards, a craft, and other activities. These are perfect for toddlers and preschoolers.
To order the box for May, use the code MAYBOX on the website. This will give you the May subscription box for an incredibly affordable rate of $35.
How You Can Support Tumble Time Xpress
As we continue an extended Shelter-In-Place, Tumble Time Xpress is hoping they can continue to bring some of the tools and fun to students who would typically enjoy a morning on the Bus. Karentina realizes it is not quite the same – but, the LIVE activities and subscription boxes will provide access to learning, movement, and play that are welcome distractions for parents and children alike.
