I love the free open space and activities for the kids despite their age to have fun. Regan and her helper were fantastic!
I love that they set up and cleaned up. Your party service definitely takes the stress off parents. It gives parents the opportunity to take
Photos, play along with their child and socialize with guest. I also love that we can brin our own food and adhere to guest dietary restrictions.
Our daughter had a birthday party on Sat. 10/1 @4:30pm. Overall, the kids had a blast and we were happy with the Little Gym. However, I was disappointment on a few counts.
First, when we arrived about 10 minutes before the party start time, the room was not even close to being set up. We dropped of balloons, cakes, favors and other small décor items earlier and those items were still stashed in the office area. I put out the balloons, asked for the cake to be out, and placed all other décor items around the room. When I asked the staff why the room was not ready when we arrived- she stated that if we didn't arrive early the room would be ready. We were only 10 minutes and if we had not arrived early, the room would not have been ready. Guests were already arriving at 4:30 and the 2 staff, my husband and myself- were all still getting the room ready. When I asked the staff if she could bring the favors to a table- she instead went to the guests to have them sign the liability form. I understand the need for guests to sign the form, however, if staff would have planned better- we would have been so rushed.
Secondly, we paid for the deluxe party- with a superhero theme. There was no additional décor provided by the Little Gym that would have indicated that it was a super hero party. The only indication that it was super hero theme was the "incredibles" décor that we brought ourselves. We brought our superhero banner, balloons, napkins etc.. I was led to believe that there would be superhero table ware, and other decorations that would go with a theme. None of that was present. I was also in the gym with the kids and there was no super-hero program that the package stated. My daughter only received a cape.
Again, overall- my daughter and her friends had a blast and the parents were pleased. The staff was energetic and helpful at the end, however, the staff appeared disorganized and defensive in the beginning. The deluxe package was misleading and I felt as I we did not get what we paid for. Please feel free to contact me with any further questions.
The girls were focused on cleaning up and getting out of there not our party. I thought it was just me, but two other parents offered similar feedback prior to me having shared my thoughts. Then the birthday girl said the gym time was rushed.
It's super easy for parents. The staff helps so much with prep, set-up, and clean-up. They do a wonderful job keeping the kids occupied during playtime, but also gives the kids a change to run around and do their own thing.
It felt a little disorganized when we arrived and the kids didn't get to go into the gym immediately. Also, during the food portion I had to ask for forks and other items that I had expected to be ready and prepared.
It has provided my daughter with social interaction with children her age in a safe environment for infants. She has become more confident in her gross motor skills, as well as more comfortable meeting new people.
