We are so thrilled to announce that Squishmallows are landing in the UK next week. There are 13 super-special animal characters launching and with further Christmas characters already confirmed for the 2019 festive period. Not only that, there will more Squishmallows added throughout the year with the back to school clip-on range and the Disney range arriving for this Christmas giving you even more characters to choose from!
Did you manage to join in an hour fun-filled Sqishmallows Twitter Party with the exclusive UK distributor HexBugs yesterday? Both my children are loving these super cute and soft Squishmallows 7.5 inch plushes and have been fighting over them since!
The Squishmallows phenomenon, which has reported over 20 million individual products sold in the US alone, is showing no signs of slowing down with plans firmly in place to extend the eagerly anticipated 13-character product line-up by 2020 in the UK – despite the product not yet being on shelves! The increasing popularity of ‘squish’ toys has been widely recognised by retailers over the past year and the Squishmallows range hits all the right notes, thanks to their unbelievably soft marshmallow-like texture, adorable kawaii-style design, collectability factor and very reasonable cost.
To coincide with the new product launch, the Squishmallows UK website is live now to allow users to download adoption certificates relating to each character, play interactive and engaging educational games and even offer the opportunity to purchase an exclusive 14th character that will not be available elsewhere.
Each Squishmallow character has their own unique personality, so children can create a Squishmallow collection of their favourite buddies and care for them. Each soft toy is 7.5 inches tall which is the perfect size for young ones to cuddle. They are so cute and soft too. The stitching and detail on these plushes are brilliant and they are very nicely finished all around. There is not a loose thread in sight, no lumpiness to the filling and no hard edges at all. These plushes are made to a really high standard. They are suitable for aged three and above.
