The Little Gym Expands Partnership With Nickelodeon to Host Official SpongeBob SquarePants Parties

SCOTTSDALE, AZ--(Marketwired - Oct 22, 2014) - "Are you ready, kids?" "Aye-Aye Captain!" The Little Gym International today announced that children can celebrate their birthdays SpongeBob-style at The Little Gym as the experiential learning and physical development center is introducing "SpongeBob SquarePants"-themed Awesome Birthday Bash parties at participating U.S. locations.

The Little Gym's curriculum for its new "SpongeBob SquarePants" parties, designed for children up to age 12, is being developed by the company in partnership with Nickelodeon. The birthday parties will take children on an undersea adventure inside their local The Little Gym, as children engage with characters like Patrick, Squidward and Mister Krabs in an interactive and imaginative story that gets kids moving, climbing and tumbling through active play.

The Little Gym's popular Awesome Birthday Bash parties provide families with age-appropriate games, music and fun activities led by trained instructors. The parties deliver on the company's promise of "Serious Fun" by incorporating elements of its 'Three-Dimensional Learning' approach: Get Moving!, Brain Boost!, and Citizen Kid. The official "Dora the Explorer" and "Go, Diego, Go!"-themed parties have proven popular with children ages 2 to 6 since being introduced in 2012.

"Our member families have been asking for SpongeBob SquarePants parties, so we are excited to share the news that children are now able to experience 'nautical nonsense' at The Little Gym. Through our partnership with Nickelodeon, The Little Gym is the only childhood development center providing families with Dora, Diego & SpongeBob-themed birthday parties that tap into the imagination and excitement of shows that children love," said Ruk Adams, President and CEO, The Little Gym International.
