I really love this set despite the basketball and other crappy shooting devices :-| Lets hope they will reach France and the rest of Europe !! I will definitly buy this set !!
I have two small questions Chris:
1) Since I don't have any pull bac motor vehicles, can you easilly modify the boat/car (taking the motor away ??)
2) Is that TV a printed part (it looks like one) ?? That would be awsome !! Is there any stickers at all in this set ??
Tks in advance Chris ;-)

overall, i would agree with your wife in that it is a set for girls to play house with. for me and my son this theme/line is a waste of time. even though i'm in the US, i still can't understand the attraction of spongebob. do any of you watch the cartoon? can you tell me what's so appealing about spongebob?

Even though the characters of Bob and Patrick are truly annoying (they really aggravate me), the characters of Squidward and Mister Krab are hilarious !! The money loving crab talking like a real pirate (argh argh argh), and the always pessimistic and talentles squid are a must see !! Plus there is the funny Plankton which is a total mess, he will never succeed in anuthing loool.
I like the aquatic themes in general and I think the design of the houses are nice ;-)

I was planning on keeping away from SpongeBob, but that Bikini Bottom set is seriously tempting now.
The way the house unfolds and how they used the diagonal plates to hold the hinges at a perfect 45* angle is genious. Before now I had always thought that using hinges to get circles always meant instability, but that offers lots of ideas for MOCs...nice round but strong spaceship engines... hmmmmmmh!
Looks like lots of good orange parts in there.... I guess I could fit the new figs into some kinda Space Bar setting, where you could overlook how odd they are.
How much did it cost btw?

The cata-bed looks like fun!
I am really positive about this line.I think that people of all ages will be buying these sets.

I've seen nearly all the episodes and none of them had anything to do with basketball.
I'm not complaining, but it's a little odd. :-/
