My Take on this Product
I was able to see the SpongeBob build-a-bear and all I have to say is that it was so cool! My youngest is a huge sponge bob fan and while it took me a while longer to come to appreciate his humor and the intricacies of Bikini Bottom, I have now come to see more of what my daughter loves about the series. This was a fun creation that was extra soft and plush. Once my daughter got her hands on this she did not want to let it go. I  am also impressed with the variety of other items that they have made to go along with this line and all will be things that any SpongeBob fan will simply adore!
