THANK YOU!!!!! That is so helpful!

:)

I also checked another Walmart store after I posted this photo and found the same display on the end of the Nickeloden/Disney Princess aisle so I guess each Walmart just puts the dispaly where they think is best.


I've got the unicorn and the narwhal so far. I said I'd only get those two but these are so cute I might find it hard to resist getting a few more. :)

Still no luck. This is what my Wal-Mart has instead.

I'm sorry you haven't found them yet sailorstitch. I don't know why your Walmart would just have Surprizamals instead of Squishamals and Surprizamals. I'm pretty sure my Walmart has both.

Because our toy dept is pitiful. It's tiny compared to other stores I've been to. We have 3 aisles for toys. One for boys, one for girls and one for toddlers.

I’m a teacher and some kids at school have these - they are also into these foam squishy fruit things...they smell nice but not 100% sure I get the appeal. I guess it’s the tactile nature of them that’s cool?

They are cute, but the scented part really puts me off. I am ok with some scents.

I have the puppy Squishimal.  My niece and I found them a couple of months ago in a box at Target.  I got the dog, she got the pig.  I kind of envied her pig but she found it first and I don’t want more than one.  Puppy is really cute though.

Is the scent new?  Mine doesn’t seem to have one.

Noasar, I think its the softness and squishy feel that they like.  And likely there is some “keeping up with the Jones” going on too.   If one or two kids have something, they all want it.  Plus, all the kids my niece is friends with are really into box openings and toy reviews on YouTube/Instagram.  My little niece is extremely knowledgable about these toys and I get an education every time we walk through the toy isle now.  It’s crazy.

I'm sorry to hear that sailorstitch. :(

I like these much better than the other squishy things I've seen kids with that were so low quality they fell apart in a day. 

I love that the squishy foam is sealed inside a stuffed animal. :)

I bought the Uni and one of the dogs. I was disappointed in how the Uni actually looked but oh well. If I can find a similar foam that is used in these then I can make some of my own XD
My DeviantArt, why not drop by and take a look [you]

So cute! I'm gonna need that unicorn. I hadn't heard of these until my daughter got 2 for her birthday this weekend. She got the fox and the pig. Her friends found them at Showcase in the mall if any Canadians are looking for them.

I have the Fox one of these guys but I got it at Target, I've never seen these at Walmart at all. Unfortunately my Targets have moved the tray displays to the clearance section so I don't know if they will be stocking these again. :c
