We're in Canada so it may be different, but we've done both and loved both. Our Little Gym is much bigger than our Gymboree, so I like LG more for that reason. However, our Gymboree program is much more structured, so I like that about G.
Little Gym here is much more gymnastics and free play, (with some dancing/walking in a circle). Gymboree is much more structured activities, climbing, balls, bubbles and music, which my kids like better than gymnastics.
LG is better though b/c it has a party room for snacks/lunch afterwards and they keep it much cleaner than our gymboree. I think it all depends on your location. Little Gym here is way more expensive too, but it has march break and xmas camps, (G does not here) and monthly parents survival nights (with a theme night where they go all out, the kids go from 6-9pm one Friday a month, it is great). So really, the kids and DH and I love both for different reasons.
