I love SpongeBob as a character, He is always doing something that he enjoys. It is pretty obvious that he is almost always happy as well. I am taking his mentality to when I get older in life.

Patrick showed on multiple occasions that he was unable to accept others including his good friend Spongebob the manners of the characters appalled me and taught no life lessons. Quite frankly I think that Mr. Krabs was sexist as he had no females working at his establishment.

Is It Any Good?

If you're at all familiar with SpongeBob SquarePants, the creative silliness of this site's content won't be a surprise. Yet the games aren't likely to hold kids' attention for many return trips. If your child is a cartoon fanatic who wants to be a cartoonist or humor writer someday, reading the site's SpongeBob Crew Blog and reading the updates on the show's happenings may be educational. Overall, SpongeBob fans will love this site, non-fans likely won't get it.

Did we miss something on diversity?

Research shows a connection between kids' healthy self-esteem and positive portrayals in media. That's why we've added a new "Diverse Representations" section to our reviews that will be rolling out on an ongoing basis. You can help us help kids by suggesting a diversity update.
