“The world can be a hard place. We want to give our fans something soft and comforting, and sometimes a little quirky,” said Zoe Fraade-Blanar, Co-Founder of Squishable.

Back in 2007, the dream of creating a super soft and colorful plushy was born and Squishables was born.  Since then, millions of plush toys have been sold in a huge variety of designs like cats, dogs, mythical creatures, holiday-themed characters, favorite foods, and more.

Are Squishable and Squishmallow the Same Thing?

If you've already got a bunch of super soft and plushy animals at your house, you might have Squishables but it could be another popular brand too called Squishmallows.

I'm not a huge expert in this world, especially since we don't have either of these in our house, but I did find out how these brands are a bit different.

Here are a few differences according to toynk.com:

  • DIFFERENT SIZES
    • Squishmallows offer sizes 5 inches to 24 inches.
    • Squishables offer sizes 7.5 inches and 15 inches
  • TEXTURES
    • Squishmallows are velvety soft and feel marshmallowy-soft
    • Squishables are fluffy and a little bit firmer
  • COLLECTIONS
    • Squishmallows offer more collections (like holidays and varieties)
    • Squishables focuses more on round animals and comfort foods
  • EXTRAS
    • Squishmallows don't have accessories
    • Squishables have fun accessories for the toy
  • COST
    • Squishmallows cost about $20 to 30 each
    • Squishable cost about $40 to $50 each
