Welcome to the 2012 Gymboree Janie Jack Crazy 8 updates thread.
If I post any skus I will remove them once the NLs are up online to avoid the thread getting too heavy.
Red Balloon sale continues atm. The major bargains with this sale are instore not online as this is when the stores pull the boxes from out the back & you get price points starting at 99 cents.
Next big event is Gymbuck Redemption (GBR) starts Jan 19 & usually a day earlier for rewards members.
GBs seem to be going for a bit cheaper than the last round when the going price was $6/GB atm it seems more like $4-5/GB.
NL skus are out & this is big line being released on Monday, the number of skus is HUGE:
Girls lines are:
Main line: Pastels, florals & patchwork
Capsule Line:Pink & white
Swim wear, underwear & sleep wear
(note capsule line just means it is available online & in tier one stores only ie the bigger stores - smaller stores only get the main line)
Boys lines are:
Mian line: Dinosaurs - orange, browns, greeens
Active wear - tees (very Boden like), shorts plaid & palin, long pants
Capsule line: Bugs in blues & greens

No Crazy Cash this time as they stopped that last year so bit of talk about on the net as to what will happen this time instead of Crazy Cash Redemption as usually this time of year is CCR in conjunction with the NL release. Bit of hope/speculation that there will be a sale soon.
New skus out for C8 with a NL out on Monday as well & a lot of people have mentioned the lines look v similar to Gymbos Pop of Daisies & All Star Slugger - got to say I agree v nice lines but totally a redo of poast Gymbo lines:
Girls = green, white,aqua, yellows, daisies with a few snails & turtles thrown in LOL
Boys = baseball - browsn & reds
+ swimwear for both
NBG = a remake of Gymbos Bee Chic from last year yellow & black v cute
NBB = remake of Gymbos Wild Safari from year before last - browns, orange, lions etc
Janie and Jack
Season Finale sale continues atm will prob end towards the end of Jan.
Like the Gymbo RBS this is really an instore event where the stores pull boxes of summer gear from the back at greatly reduced prices.
The NL for JJ is also out on Monday.
Girls: Spring Lily > Navy, green, lillies & some patchwork (just for Miss Windsor ). Also navy & white swimwear.
2nd line: Swimwear in pink incl sundresses & rompers
3rd line: JJ classsic - bow leggings, white pants etc
Boys: Sailboat Club > navy & yellow
2nd line: Aqua & white swimwear
3rd line: JJ classics > roll up pants in white, black
Signature Layette is also part of the NL for boys & girls in the traditional pink & blue.
Uni layette is the usual pretty pale green.
My view is that there will be a MD to the current FP lines Italian Flower & Classic Car when the NL is released on Monday. Not sure if the Resort Collections will get MD as JJ swimwear usually sells very well & I know for the boys it often doesnt make it to 2nd MD in the case of the larger szies.
