Today, Nickelodeon and the United States Postal Service are launching “SpongeBob MailPants,” and educational letter-writing program featuring SpongeBob to show kids the fun of writing, sending and receiving mail this holiday season. Now through January 4, kids can get special postage-paid, customized SpongeBob postcards at over 25,000 Post Office locations nationwide to send to friends and loved ones.
“This program is a great way to inspire kids to write and send cards and letters because it’s done with the fun, positivity and humor of the one and only SpongeBob SquarePants,” said Pam Kaufman, Chief Marketing Officer and President of Consumer Products for Nickelodeon. “SpongeBob MailPants is a terrific partnership between Nickelodeon and the Postal Service, and we’re thrilled that kids and families across the country can go to their local Post Office for some SpongeBob-inspired holiday cheer.”
Additionally, 30 mailboxes across the country are being wrapped in a custom SpongeBob design to bring some cheer and festivity to city sidewalks in places including Atlanta, Boston, Chicago, Dallas, Los Angeles, Miami, Orlando, Philadelphia, New York, Charlotte, NC; Hollywood, FL and Kirkwood, MO. Kids, parents and teachers can learn more at nick.com/usps, which hosts a step-by-step video tutorial about letter writing, customizable and printable SpongeBob stationery that will be updated with new designs throughout the program and writing-themed SpongeBob video clips.
