Squishamals
« on: June 05, 2018, 04:29:11 AM »
I was looking for ponies at Walmart today, and found a bunch of squishamals instead! I hadn't heard of them, but I wound up buying one! I got the seafoam and purple cat. There were all sorts of creatures though, even a sloth, hedgehog, narwhal, and unicorn.

They're squishy like a stress ball, but have minky-like fabric on the outside. When you squeeze them they compress for a few seconds and then move back into their original shape. I'd say they're roughly around grapefruit sized. Also, they're scented. I personally am not a fan of this, (fake smells give me headaches), but I think they're supposed to smell like melon or something.

I think I paid $7 for mine, which seemed a tad much to me, but I decided to treat myself.

Has anyone else gotten into these little guys? Who do you have?

They look amazing! I really like the idea of a plush squishie, as the texture of regular squishies feels a bit odd to me. The little sheep and the narwhal are just too precious; I'll need to keep an eye out for them!

I saw these today, they're really cute. :) I'll probably end up picking at least one up.

I know what you mean! It also bugs me when the paint on regular squishies cracks and peels, so this seems a good solution! :-D

I wanted to get the narwhal also but could only get one today. I think they're really cute but I don't like the melon scent (I'm usually okay with scented things but this scent doesn't appeal to me.)

I couldn't find them at my Wal-Mart. :( Where is everyone finding them? I assume the toys, but what are they next to?

At the Walmart store's I've found them at they were in an endcap display like those LOL Surprise dolls sometimes are with an opening at the top and bottom.  I lucked out finding them the first time but at the store I visited yesterday I had to walk around each aisle until I found them. The endcap was on the back of the aisle and I think it was the random/smaller toy lines aisle as the first places I checked were baby toys, Barbie and the MLP sections. 

Also the endcaps I've found say Sqeezeamals instead of Squishamals. I heard there was a copyright issue with Squishamals so they changed the name to Squeezeamals. I can get a pic of the display next time I go to Walmart.


I hope you find them soon. :) It seems they've been out for a few months but I'm just now seeing them in my area.

I checked all the endcaps. Nothing. I saw Surprisimals. Surprise stuffed animals in plastic balls. But no squishy round stuffed animals. :(

This one is right at the start of the baby toys aisle, but it's been it's been moved since Saturday because I'm sure it wasn't on that aisle Saturday.  :lol:


I hope they show up in your stores soon sailorstitch.

They are super cute :) I just did a search and a handful of Smyths stores apparently have them in stock. One is the one near my parents so I may go look on Saturday just from curiosity. Smyths has them at £5.99 each :/

I don't know if they are in other stores though. I am guessing if they're new that they're just starting to come out. For some reason my parents' local Smyths often gets stuff first despite being in the back of beyond...they had the EQG reboot dolls before my London store as well.
