Since 1999, SpongeBob Squarepants has ruled the cartoon world, from all of his half-hour episodes to a full-length feature movie. SpongeBob’s popularity continues to grow to this day and this Christmas and holiday, SpongeBob toys are more popular than ever. Here is a look at the best that SpongeBob (SB) has to offer.
Crabby Patty Station: Many episodes of SpongeBob Squarepants take place at SpongeBob’s place of employment, the Krusty Krab, where SpongeBob is the head fry cook. Now children can recreate SB’s job with this patty station that’s with a fake grill, patties, and all the toppings. There are a lot of episodes that focus on the patty itself, so children will enjoy recreating those moments.
SB Sno Cone Maker: For dessert, after making the faux patties, kids can enjoy a real sno cone with the SB Sno Cone maker. The shaved ice comes right out o SB’s mouth and there are many different flavors of syrup available separately, but the set comes with some already. It may get messy, so this is defiantly a toy for the kitchen, but will keep your child busy as you make dinner.
LEGOs: It is hard to find any SpongeBob figures right now, but the LEGO’s company has released a lot of SB sets for children to build and enjoy. Highlights here include the Krusty Krab Set that includes mini burgers, a cash register and four LEGO figures to play with. Other sets include the Bikini Bottom play set that has SpongeBob’s house, Patrick’s house, and Squidworth’s house. This set also comes with mini jellyfish for SB and Patrick figures to catch. LEGO continues to make very impressive sets and the SpongeBob collection add to that.
Atlantis Squarepantis: SpongeBob’s newest TV movie, Atlantis Squarepantis has made its premiere and the day following that, a video game and DVD were released in conjunction. The DVD of the movie features behind the scenes documentaries and other bonuses, but the highlight there is the movie itself. SpongeBob, Patrick, Sandy, and other characters from the show travel to the land of Atlantis, where they must save the world’s oldest bubble. The video game is another standard SB game, fun for younger children, but not really challenging for anybody else.
Those are the best SpongeBob products available in stores right now, but Burger King has exclusive SpongeBob Squarepants toys that would make great stocking stuffers and also many children’s clothes can be found with SpongeBob Squarepants logos on them.
