Wii - Spongebob's Boating Bash Review and Giveaway







I don't know if you all know, but I am a huge Spongebob Squarepants fan!  I have loved the show since it came out.  I own Spongebob sheets, blankets, pillows, stuffed animals, board games and more!  I was so excited to get the opportunity to review the new Wii Game - Spongebob's Boating Bash.  Since I am an adult though, I decided to invite over two 7-year old boys whose families' I am friends with.  Their parents happily let them come over since the game is rated E for Everyone.




Crash 'N Bash with your favorite SpongeBob character in this exhilarating, fast-paced demolition derby style party game full of excitement for the whole family. Players drive around in cars...er, boats competing within wacky arenas throughout Bikini Bottom to ultimately be the last boat standing! The story draws upon one of the most popular events in the TV Series which is SpongeBob’s never ending quest to earn his coveted boating license. In the game, SpongeBob is tricked into a D.R.I.V.E. course by a shady Shark character to earn his license and is taught the WRONG way to drive.





Because I am a procrastinator, I tried out the game the morning they were set to come over.  I was so relieved at how easy it was to set up and play.  I just knew the boys would love it.  They came over for a kid-friendly lunch (we never eat food like dino chicken nuggets and pizza bagels!!!!), and then they couldn't wait to try out the game.  They had so much fun playing!!  They needed to be told how to hold/operate the Wii remote, but they had it from there.  They had a ton of fun of fun picking out their characters and boats!  They loved bashing into each others' boats and watching the pieces fly off!
