Nine years ago Evelyn, mother of four, had a dream:
to create a family fun spot that would provide quality time and a unique atmosphere for parents and children.
Her dream quickly became a reality, and from a salaried employee at the Gymboree play area at the Renanim Mall, she became the owner. Her husband Yossi was bitten by the bug, resigned from his job as a private investigator and came along for the ride.
Within a short time Evelyn and Yossi opened two more play areas: the Pula Pula at the Qriyat-Ono Mall and the Pula Pula play area at Bilu Center.
The moment you look at them, it’s easy to see that these activity areas are unlike standard Gymboree facilities.This is evident from the design of the areas and the personal touches that Evelyn and Yossi have added to every corner and every detail.
Yossi used his creative mind and golden hands to design and build high quality wooden game boards, which develop the children’s intelligence and motor skills, and adapted them to the various age groups at each of the Gymboree play areas.
Evelyn is in charge of esthetics, safety and logistics, and also organizes birthday parties and events that are carefully planned and highly praised.
During family dinners they hold staff meetings along with their four children, who help them with the planning, development and renovation of the play areas.And behind the scenes, in the backyard, Yossi has a workshop devoted entirely to developing and building toys and games for the play areas.
There’s no doubt about it – when you live and breathe a business 24 hours a day and enjoy every minute of it, the results can be seen on the ground:
The children have fun and the parents are happy!
