We found Squidward alongside Spongebob and his friends on www.play.com when we were looking for little stocking fillers for my daughter last Christmas. Being a huge Spongebob fan we knew she would love these figures and purchased them for her to put into her stocking and hang on the end of her bed.
Squidward is....well a squid and lives in Bikini Bottom with Spongebob and the rest of the gang. He is the stuck up one of the bunch with an "I'm better than you" air about him. He is very funny and Spongebob forever gets on his nerves.
This little figure of Squidward is just perfect. He is a little 3D version of himself. He stands at 8cm tall (like the other Spongebob figures) and he has been created to be a perfect replica of the cartoon character. He has his iconic bublous head and huge nose complete with the fed up expression he wears throughout the show. He is wearing his mustard yellow t-shirt as he does in the program and his tenticles which double up as his feet are on show. He is the exact colour he appears to be on the show too with attention to detail even shown on the base of his tenticles in that there is a dark blue definition to show where his tenticles will grip.
At 8cm these figures are not very big but they all match in size and look great when out on display together. I was really pleased to find that although Squidward is the skinnest of the figures (as he is on the show) he doesn't topple over when standing and seems to be pretty sturdy. I think it is because his tenticle feet are a flat base which provides perfect balance.
Like Spongebob, Squidward is really durable. He is made of a bendy plastic and nothing loooks like it will break off easily.
My daughter absolutely loves the figures and they have remained a firm favourite play toy. We paid £2.99 for Squidward from www.play.com but they were sold seperately whereas now I think you can purchase them as part of a giftset. This Squidward came in a blister pack much the same as Spongebob which was yellow and reminscent of Spongebob's pineapple house proclaiming what it is and on the back it shows which other figures are available in the series.
This Bullyland Squidward figure was part of a set I brought a couple of years ago, my dad was using them as ornaments on a shelf but over time my other 2 sisters have nabbed them as toys and now Squidward lives in my 3 year old sister's toybox. The figures are all mega cute and it was a shame to just have them sitting on a shelf so I'm glad they are actually played with now.
Out of all the characters we've got this is actually my least favourite, I think it's because he's got such a miserable expression on his face. I know Squidward is a misery even on the tv programme but to me this figure doesn't actually look all that much like the character off the tv.
Squidward is about 7 1/2cm tall so this isn't a massive figure, it's just about the tallest out of all the Spongebob figures in this set though. The recommended age is 5 years for playing with Squidward and I think that is because of the size of it and also because the neck and arms are very thin and if it was played with a lot they could break off.
The colours are very dull on this figure and it really stands out for that because the rest of them in the collection are very brightly coloured. Squidward is in a pose that you'll recognise from the tv, standing looking all moody with his hands on his hips..... it makes him look MADLY miserable and even though that's what he's like in the programme it's a shame they couldn't make the toy look a bit happier because who wants to play with a miserable toy???
If you're buying these figures to use as ornaments you'll probably be happy with Squidward. Even though the base of the figure is small it's very stable when you stand him up, it's clever the way they've made the base because 4 of Squidwards feet spread outwards to make him a lot more stable than he looks. The figure doesn't wobble around or anything and the good think about it is that you can stand him near Spongebob and he looks down disapproving at him...... just like in the programme.
The figure is very well made from a rubbery feeling plastic, even though it's been played with loads none of the colour is rubbing off and there hasn't been any other damage to Squidward. I wish they had done his t-shirt in a brighter colour though because next to the pale blue of Squidward's body it makes the figure look very washed out and not very interesting.
Recommended...... for Spongebob fans but this isn't the most exciting looking figure you can buy.
Who doesn't love Squidward? He's certainly my favourite character, next to Patrick. His holier-than-thou attitudes are the highlight of the show. So what better to proclaim your love for the cranky six-legged squid but to get a small figurine of him.
He is modeled just right, as his cartoon self would look in a 3D word and is, probably the most simple of the lot - he stands with a sort of fed up expression on his face, his arms at his waist, looking as if Spongebob has just done ... well, anything, really. A basic figure without any props this suits the character really well and is my favourite of all of them.
The Squidward figure, like all of the other (except for Gary the snail), stands at about 7 or 8 cm tall. Small, certainly, but looks good on some DVDs or a bile of books you know you have to read for next week but really don't want to. He's durable and won't break and is made to be able to stand up by himself without any help, unlike the Spongebob one which needed a small wave attached to his feet to actually stand up properly.
Received as part of a set, as a gift, I had these about my computer area and they look great as a set as well as individually. They make great presents for that Spongebob fan we all know, or for yourself. At just over three pounds each, it's not exactly burning through your wallet, either
