Pros: It's SpongeBob!
Cons: Is SpongeBob a con? nah!
Back in January when I quit smoking I started getting a little odd. Okay, I already was odd, I started getting weird. My collection of strange and useless toys started overtaking my office, to the point where I now have Mr. Bob the Builder (aka my husband) building me more shelving to display all my toys. One of the items that has a prominent position on my shelves is my SpongeBob SquarePants Viewer Keychain collection. SpongeBobs Pineapple House is the first Viewer Keychain I purchased in the set.
What is it? Well, its a keychain, obviously! But not only that! Oh, no! Just a plain old keychain would never be placed on a shelf and desired by young and old alike! Oh, no! This keychain is shaped like SpongeBob SquarePants house. His pineapple house! I can just see the real estate listing now!
Cozy little one bedroom. Eccentric and fun, this little house is shaped like a golden pineapple. Charmingly trimmed in blue, complete with a green leaf top, this one must be seen to be believed! Comes complete with attached silver chain, purple plastic Basic Fun logoed tag, and silver clip. Only one owner, a Sponge named Bob who wears Square Pants. Please call before attempting to view. Hey! Wait!! Stop that!! Dont look in the window!! Thats an invasion of the Sponges privacy!!!
Oooooh! Too late!! Sorry SpongeBob!
Standing about two inches high, theres a small little porthole window to see inside SpongeBobs Pineapple House. And what do we see when we take a peek? Well, we seem to have caught poor SpongeBob by surprise! Hes not wearing his SquarePants! And boy, does he look embarassed! Wearing his nice white briefs (should have wrote about those for the underwear writeoff!) hes definitely trying to cover up his obvious embarassment! Youll also see Gary, SpongeBobs pet snail, as well as the tastefully decorated home of SpongeBob, complete with diving board.
What exactly do I get out of this keychain? Well, in the beginning it was a way to reward myself for not smoking. One of these toys cost less than half of my daily smoking habit and it gave me a good laugh. When I was stressing out about smoking Id just grab one of my toys, remind myself that I wouldnt have them if Id been smoking, and take a voyeuristic peek inside the wonderful world of SpongeBob SquarePants. Nowadays its a great way to get my kids to behave themselves. They love my SpongeBob collection, and if theyre good they can play with them. Now if I could just find the Water Wiggler!
