The Little Gym Launches Nickelodeon's Go Diego Go! Birthday Parties

SCOTTSDALE, AZ--(Marketwired - May 30, 2013) - Building on the successful launch of Dora The Explorer birthday parties last fall, The Little Gym International and Nickelodeon today announced that Go Diego Go!-themed Awesome Birthday Bash parties are now being introduced at the more than 200 The Little Gym locations in the United States.

The Little Gym, already a popular destination for hosting children's birthday parties, has celebrated official Dora The Explorer-themed birthday celebrations with more than 16,000 girls and boys at gyms across the country in just six months. For Go Diego Go!, The Little Gym has worked with Nickelodeon to create exclusive, age-appropriate birthday party curriculums that take children on animal rescue adventures over, under and through the tumbling and gymnastics "obstacles" in each The Little Gym.

At The Little Gym's new Go Diego Go! birthday parties, guests ages 3 to 6 help Diego and the birthday honoree perform three animal rescues, earning each child an "Animal Rescue Patch." The children travel "through the rainforest and mountains of Latin America" and must work together to find the lost patches so that they may become official "Animal Rescuers" just like Diego. A special Go Diego Go! birthday party curriculum developed for 2-year-olds is also available.

"We are excited to extend our partnership with Nickelodeon and provide parents with another fun and popular themed party option at The Little Gym. Celebrations are a part of what we do every day on the gym floor, encouraging children to try new skills and celebrating their attempts and successes. But we kick up it a notch for birthdays. Our Awesome Birthday Bash parties at The Little Gym keep children engaged, active and laughing throughout, and the program that we have created for Go Diego Go! is no exception," said Bob Bingham, President & CEO, The Little Gym International.

The Little Gym, the leading enrichment and child physical development center for ages four months through 12 years, has been acclaimed by Parents Magazine as the #1 place to host children's birthday parties. The Little Gym's Awesome Birthday Bash features games, music and fun activities created especially for the birthday kid and guests. To locate the nearest The Little Gym location, please visit
