A little kid from New York ordered fifty-one cases of SpongeBob popsicles worth thousands of dollars from her mother’s Amazon account.
Do you know what the twist is? The super kid Noah gave her aunt’s shipping address instead of his mother’s. And that, too, without his mom’s permission?
Noah ordered 918 single popsicle boxes for a total of $2,618.85 because of his love for SpongeBob. Due to the nature of the product, Amazon has not withdrawn popsicles.
A social work NYU student and mother of three sons, Bryant posted a message on the NYU student’s Facebook page because she didn’t know how to fund his son’s innocent orders.
Katie Schloss, Bryant’s friend and student at NYU’s Silver School of Social Work, immediately saw the message and texted her friend a solution. Schloss created a GoFundMe account to cover the cost and posted the story on her Instagram page with Bryant’s permission. On the GoFundMe page, Schloss wrote about this situation and made everyone aware of the fact that Amazon won’t take back the orders, and the mother cannot afford it, being a social work student and the sole earner of the family of four.
With the help of the page, within 24 hours around $7000 had been raised and the cost was covered.

Clearly, Parenting is not an easy task. Raising three children is more difficult when trying to get a master’s degree in social work. Having a child with ASD here has an unexpected frivolous cost of $2600, and it’s easy to imagine that this would be a nightmare.
Jennifer Bryant later thanked everyone for helping her and that they made back more than the price of the product. She also mentioned that the extra donations will be used up for Noah’s education and additional support.
As for SpongeBob outside the ice world, it’s on the doorstep these days. Now, 20 years later, the franchise is expanding. The third film in the series, SpongeBob: Sponge on the Run, premiered on Paramount + earlier this year. Nickelodeon also has other side effects soon as well as Patrick Star Show and Kamp Koral.
