HIT Entertainment will be bringing its children’s properties to resorts around the globe, based on a partnership forged with The All Inclusive Collection. Thomas & Friends, Barney, Bob the Builder and Angelina Ballerina will feature in newly designed kid’s clubs and interactive play areas, dubbed the Little Big Club, in Mexico, the Dominican Republic and the Caribbean, set to open in June and July.
The All Inclusive Collection will bring the HIT brands to the Hard Rock Hotel & Casino Punta Cana, Cancun Place (which will be re-branded the Hard Rock Hotel Cancun in August) and to Aventura Cove Palace (which will be the Hard Rock Hotel Riviera Maya in early 2013).
“HIT’s characters are loved around the world, and we’re thrilled to work with the All Inclusive Collection to provide their littlest guests the ultimate star-studded vacation experience alongside our stars, Thomas the Tank Engine, Barney, Bob the Builder and Angelina Ballerina,” says Pam Westman, executive vice president, the Americas, HIT Entertainment. “Adults can enjoy the All Inclusive Collection’s top notch offerings, and they can also completely relax knowing that their kids will be entertained by HIT’s trusted and beloved brands.”
Each Little Big Club will offer themed activities including Angelina Ballerina interactive dance areas and dress-up, Thomas & Friends super-sized trains, Barney music areas and Bob the Builder construction and creative craft activities. The Little Big Club will also include a mini-theater, character meet and greets and a weekly live show produced by RWS and Associates. Additionally, the Little Big Club will extend outdoors with themed splash parks and play areas, tailored to the specific resort property.
“By partnering with HIT Entertainment, the All Inclusive Collection is bringing an unmatched kids club experience to our resorts in Mexico and the Dominican Republic, giving every kid a stage and chance to interact with their favorite stars,” says Rafael Chapur, chief operating officer, All Inclusive Collection. “This is just one of many new rock star experiences we will unveil at our re-branded resorts, as we strive to offer an unmatched vacation experience.”
