More than 3 billion views on YouTube isn’t enough for “Baby Shark.”
SmartStudy, the entertainment company behind Pinkfong — who made “Baby Shark” into a mega sensation — is on a mission to bring us “Baby Shark” everything, including cereal.
The ear-worm song may make parents scurry, but watching your toddler clap and sing along makes it worthwhile.
Here’s all the stuff to make your baby sharks swim with joy.
‘Baby Shark Live’ tour
100 cities. Thousands of screaming kids.
A “Baby Shark concert experience” is touring across America. Shows begin Oct. 3 and run through May 19, 2020 with stops in South Carolina, Florida, Texas, Louisiana, Oklahoma, Arizona, California, Utah, Colorado, Missouri, Indiana, Illinois, Iowa, Minnesota, Wisconsin, Michigan, Pennsylvania, Connecticut, New York and Massachusetts.
Thankfully, it won’t be just “Baby Shark” on repeat. Promoters say Baby Shark will join up with Pinkfong to sing and dance to a setlist of popular kids’ tunes.
‘Baby Shark’ T-shirts
As if attending the live tour isn’t enough, you can also show up wearing your designated baby, mommy and daddy shark tees. Yes, “Baby Shark Live” T-shirts are available for preorder so that they will arrive before the big day.
Toddler tees are yellow, mommy tees are pink and daddy tees are blue.

‘Baby Shark’ TV show on Nickelodeon
That’s right. The giant in children’s programming struck a deal with SmartStudy for an upcoming animated kids TV series featuring the doo-doo-doo master “Baby Shark!”
Ramsey Naito, executive vice president at Nickelodeon Animation, previously told USA TODAY it made sense to capitalize on the stratospheric popularity of one of 10 most-viewed videos on YouTube ever.
“At the heart of any popular piece of content is a terrific character, and we have a great opportunity to further explore the world of Baby Shark and follow this family through some great animated adventures on Nickelodeon,” Naito said in a statement.
‘Baby Shark’ cereal
We expected to see some baby sharks floating around in there, but Kellogg’s put “Baby Shark” on the packaging and that just may doo-doo do it.
The cereal is “berry-fin-tastic” flavored rings with non-shark-shaped marshmallows. Two-packs of the cereal will be sold exclusively at Sam’s Club locations starting Aug. 17. Single packs will be available at select Walmart stores in September.

‘Baby Shark’ Halloween costumes
Rubies Costume Company is all over the “Baby Shark” trend. They plan to sell the costumes this Halloween season. There’s the yellow baby shark, pink mommy shark and blue daddy shark.
Not gonna lie, they are pretty cute.

‘Baby Shark’ fingerlings
Fingerlings have been flying off the shelves ahead of Christmas for the past couple years, so might as well start your shopping early with these yellow “Baby Shark” versions.
Some “Baby Shark” WowWee toys are already available at Walmart. This fingerling is $34.95.
When it comes to toys, there’s also song puppets, bath squirt toys, a plush ride-on from Dynacraft, Crayola coloring pages and sticker books and some new “Baby Shark” books from Harper Collins. All these products should all arrive by the end of 2019 — you know it will be before the holiday season.

‘Baby Shark’ bedding
After a long day of swimming faster doo-doo-doo-doo-doo-doo, it’s time to tuck the kids into their “Baby Shark”-themed bedding. The body pillow ($13), throw blanket ($15), blanket ($23) and comforter set ($30) are all available at Walmart.
