“ Manufacturer: Mattell / Type: Card Game „
Recently, me and a friend were wandering around Toys R Us finding a present for her family members, when we spotted Spongebob Uno. Both of us play a lot of card games between each other and went through a slight Spongebob phase when we were younger, so the combination of them both together seemed to hard to resist.
This pack of cards cost us £4 from Toys R Us on sale, however I don't think they're even there anymore as last time I went to pick up a pack to leave at her house they seemed to have replaced them with Harry Potter and the Uno cards themselves were much more expensive at £7 for a pack. I don't think there's really an age limit to Uno as long as you can understand the rules, so maybe around 6 plus.
They are Uno cards, so the main aim they're supposed to be used for are pretty much the same as regular Uno. Each player gets 7 cards and then they must try and get rid of all their cards, by using the ones they have and putting them on similar colour cards or changing the colour with similar numbered cards. Once you get into the swing of it, it does get easier and addictive.
The cards are pretty much the same as any other pack of Uno cards except instead of colours, now there is also the addition of Spongebob characters on the front. There is a wide selection of characters, and all the main ones are shown on them in different poses and scenarios. They are all well drawn and look like they've come from the cartoon directly.
The card's quality themselves are perfect, they've been used hundreds of times and have been put in so many drawers, I'm surprised they haven't become dog eared yet. Although saying that for the packaging them come in, that definitely is not the case. I keep mine in a bag now as they were in my bag so often the packaging became damaged really easily and they just kept falling out.
Overall, I would definitely recommend these cards, as they were much cheaper than regular Uno and have managed to be as good as them. Also a plus for the fact that they're Spongebob themed so much cuter!
