Celebrate Spongebob Squarepant’s 10th Anniversary with Nooka’s Watches
by Mark R
If you have kids that are under the age of seven, then I’m sure you are quite familiar with SpongeBob Squarepants.
The man who lives in a pineapple under the sea celebrates his 10th anniversary this year, and if you missed the SpongeBob SpongeBash celebration on Nickelodeon, then you can get the SpongeBob themed watches from Nooka (not to be confused with a big cell phone company from Finland).
Yeah. That’s what you’re looking at in the photo there. I’m sure you’re probably thinking: “shouldn’t you put, I don’t know, SpongeBob on your SpongeBob watches?”
Well, apparently Nooka was not going for a literal SpongeBob merchandise with these. I was hoping to see SpongeBob bending over with ripped pants from one of my favorite episodes, but they were going for the “geometric nature of the SpongeBob character” rather than a literal print of SpongeBob, Patrick, Sandy, Squidward, or Mr. Krabbs.
Designs include the SpongeBob ZenV Alumnium Spongenvader, the SpongeBob Zub ZenH 20 Spongelevator, and the SpongeBob Zot Aluminum SpongeBamo. I’m not certain which is which in the photo, but the prices are, left to right, $275, $175, and $250. These are definitely not some cheap SpongeBob watches that you would find at your local Wal-Mart.
