Now, it’s a not-so-secret piece of information around here that I don’t like Spongebob Squarepants… at all. I’ve never been fan of the Nickelodeon series, and I don’t let the girls watch it. Despite being such a big “thing” over the years, the world of these characters is lost on me, and it probably all goes back to the time I rented THE SPONGEBOB SQUAREPANTS MOVIE for one reason only: An appearance by David Hasselhoff. Even Michael Knight himself wasn’t enough to win me over when it comes to Spongebob, so I have little knowledge of what the little yellow guy is up to… aside from the fact that MEGA Bloks has turned out some pretty cool building sets as part of a new line based on the hit series. That said, the MEGA Bloks Krusty Krab Attack Building Set arrived here for consideration for my 2014 Holiday Gift Guide, and you know what? It makes it – because Spongebob or not, it’s a cool building set and a lot of fun!
Recommended for Ages 5 and Up, the 407-piece Krusty Krab Attack is a highly detailed set that features the “Krusty Krab” restaurant, built with double-sided play action that opens up quite a few possibilities. There’s a burger launcher and dish shooter, utensils, robots (yep, robots) and of course Spongebob himself, along with Squidward, Mr. Krabs and Plankton.
While I have no intention of letting the little ones feast their eyes upon any Spongebob episodes at any time in the foreseeable future, kids don’t need to know the source material to be enamored with this great set.
