The Magic Conch shell is a toy used by SpongeBob and Patrick to answer their questions. It appears in the episodes "Club SpongeBob" and "SpongeBob's Place," as well as the video game SpongeBob's Truth or Square.


The Magic Conch shell is a lavender-colored seashell, and has a speaker inside it to help the toy and users communicate more effectively. It is operated by a pull-string.

"Club SpongeBob"

SpongeBob and Patrick ask it questions, pull the cord, and do whatever it says. It serves as the head of their club. Later in the episode, Squidward asks it numerous times for food, which it gave SpongeBob and Patrick, but the Conch continually answers "no," infuriating him.
