Rato Kim has teamed up with Nickelodeon to mash up the BOXCAT Platform Toy, with that annoyingly lovable little yellow bastard SpongeBob Squarepants, to make SPONGEBOB SQUARECAT!
And they are being developed by the award winning Sofubi [Soft Vinyl] toy manufacturing dynamo known as UNBOX Industries. We love them and you should too!
And before anyone gets all trolly over this post, I like to remind our readers here at Underground Blend that I am the biggest hater of corporate licensed crap you will find on any Designer Toy blog online. Seriously, this is Gavriel Discordia we are talking about here, I start flame wars over what is and isn't a designer toy on social media myself, all the time.
This is a Corporate Licensed Designer Toy, because the Artist and their Signature Platform are featured up front and center in this toys execution and delivery.
Apparently someone really hip to the Designer Toy Scene is working at Nickelodeon because this is not the first Designer Toy we have seen from the network this year. Check out our feature on the Jason Freeny's SpongeBob Dissectibles Blind Box Series.
This item is not yet available for sale, and no word yet about what event it will be launched at. Although we suspect Designer Con is a safe bet for an Event Specific Public Launch.
