Review: Squeeze Me Squishy, The Reject Shop

A photo of a white winged unicorn/alicorn squishy with purple hooves, purple tail and mane, and a lilac spiral horn. The squishy is shaped into a leaping position with front and back legs outstretched, and has wide, roughly-oval wings attached to its withers. The squishy has a round black eye with two lashes and a small pink oval-shaped cheek. The squishy is housed inside a bag with a clear window over rainbow-striped plastic, surrounded by small cartoon images of different squishies. Header text reads “Squeeze Me! Slow Rising Squishy Toy” in white and pink surrounded by blue/yellow/black outlines.

Price: $2 AUD.

Dimensions: 8.3 x 7.5 x 2.5 cm at widest points.

Variations: cakes, unicorns, dinosaurs.

No online listing is available. My store had these in a basket by the counters, right where you queue up to pay.

A photo, taken on a red watermelon slice pillow of a white winged unicorn/alicorn squishy with purple hooves, purple tail and mane, and a lilac spiral horn. The squishy is shaped into a leaping position with front and back legs outstretched, and has wide, roughly-oval wings attached to its withers. The squishy has a round black eye with two lashes and a small pink oval-shaped cheek. It sits, unpackaged, on its side.

These are small, mini squishies made from a very soft, marshmallow-like foam–this one looks like I can put it in my mouth and eat it. (I don’t recommend this for oral stimming–we don’t know what chemicals are contained in both foam and paint.) It’s quite slow rising: it seems fast just because the squishy is so small, but it’s slower than any similar-sized squishy I own and many of the larger ones. Mine is roughly painted in places, but it isn’t too bad for a very cheap squishy, and there’s no rips or tears.

If you like really soft squishies, I have to recommend this one. It is scented–a fake fruity sort of smell–but it isn’t too strong, so stimmers who can bear low artificial scents should tolerate this. The fun of it, though, is the softness, and the small size means it fits easily on my desk or in a pocket.

My store had dinosaur squishies in a couple of different colours, and if I didn’t have a small herd of unicorn squishies already, I absolutely would have gotten one of those.
