Kidz Central Station Launches NYC’s Best Kids’ Birthday Party Finder to Ease the Birthday Planning Process for Parents

Online platform for finding and enrolling in kids’ classes uses technology to help parents find the best birthday parties for their children.

New York, NY, February 13, 2015 --( Kidz Central Station today announced the release of NYC’s Best Kids’ Birthday Party Finder, a new tool to help NYC parents simplify the process of finding and planning their kids’ birthday parties. With so many different party options available in the NYC area, this new tool provides one place where parents go to narrow their focus and learn about the myriad options available for birthday parties.

Building on the success of Kidz Central Station and its technology for finding and enrolling in kids classes and activities, the company’s team of parents created the Birthday Party Finder as a result of their own experiences planning parties.

“We have all experienced how time-consuming and overwhelming it can be to plan a kid’s birthday party,” said Lauren Pohl, founder and CEO of Kidz Central Station. “I realized that we can use our technology to make the planning process much less stressful. Instead of having to call multiple places and perform multiple online searches, parents can quickly search by the criteria most important to them and get the information they need.”

Unlike a directory that lists out party providers, NYC’s Best Kids’ Birthday Party Finder allows parents to search by party type, age range, location, all-inclusive options, themes, and number of kids. These features were implemented based on feedback from real NYC parents who want an easy way to find the party that best suits their child and their budget.

“I’ve found it hard to find one resource that makes it easy to find NYC kids’ birthday party options,” said Cindy L., a West Village mom to a five-year-old boy. “It takes a considerable amount of time to go through websites, magazines, and recommendations to find the best option. Kidz Central Station already presents a great solution for finding classes, so to make that available for birthday parties is incredibly useful.”

A wide variety of kids' birthday party venues and performers have already signed up to list their parties on the site. There are traditional venues like 92nd Street Y, The Art Farm, Citibabes, Creative Dream Parties and MAGIC, all of which offer a variety of party packages and options; individual entertainers like Music with James and Ms. Janis Music, who perform at your apartment or venue of choice; niche birthday party providers like The Galli Theater, Rockstars!, The Crafty Kids and Chocolate Works and venues that have party rooms that can be rented out like Shake Shack and The East Wing. Like Kidz Central Station, NYC’s Best Birthday Party Finder is free of banners and other advertisements so that the interface is clean and easy to navigate.

“At Kidz Central Station we aim to use technology to make parents’ lives easier and NYC’s Best Kids’ Birthday Party Finder is an extension of that goal,” says Pohl. “We hope that our products help parents spend the little free time they have doing things with their kids rather than finding and planning things for their kids.”
