Price: 2 for $10 AUD.
Lemon Squishy Dimensions: 10 x 10 cm.
Peach Squishy Dimensions: 10 x 9.5 x 9 cm.
I’d buy these in-store if you can, as they’re $7 AUD each online.
With the increasing Americanisation of the world, we now have Black Friday sales in Australia, too. I’ve known about Typo’s squishies for a few months, but as the usual price is $10 AUD each, I haven’t felt compelled to buy.
These are pretty standard jumbo squishies available in a selection of food and animal offerings, and while $5 AUD for a jumbo squishy is a decent price, I wouldn’t rush out to buy most of them.
I do recommend buying the hamburger, the lemon and the peach (I squished all the variations available in-store) because they’re the softest, most slowest-rising squishies I have ever handled. (The others are nice, but they’re nothing special compared to the vast array of other cheap squishies online and off.) The lemon in particular is amazing–I timed it on my stopwatch app and it took a full 22 seconds to rise from a moderate-flat squish to its full shape. They’re silky soft to touch, and the lemon is so soft and squishy that I have nothing else in my kit to better it. The peach isn’t quite as soft as the lemon, but it’s still firmly on the soft and slow end of squishies. Very nice, just outclassed by the lemon!
These are scented, but lightly. It’s a slight floral-sweet scent, artificial but far from pungent. If you don’t mind a slight scent but dislike strongly-scented squishies, these will work for you.
My only drawback is that the mesh bags make it difficult to spot marks on the squishies when buying; my lemon has a small stripe where it seems to have brushed up against something with brown paint. I wish these were housed in plastic bags to prevent the foam getting stained or dirty in the warehouse or the store, not mesh bags.
You all know that I don’t exactly need more new squishies, but the lemon is amazing and I absolutely recommend it for folks who like soft, slow-rising squishies. Honestly? I’d just get two lemons…
