As long as you don’t live under a rock, you’ve probably heard of the popular plush toys known as Squishmallows. Squishmallow launched their brand in 2017 and have increased in popularity ever since.

This popularity is likely due to the fact that their brand doesn’t just cater to children, but to adults as well. Squishmallows are collectible items and therefore it often requires some extensive searching in order to find specific ones.

I personally own about 10 (which is probably too much for a 20-year-old), and I’ve seen some people who own hundreds.

However, I am not writing this article to convince you to start your own expansive Squishmallow collection. I am writing to convince you to treat yourself to the purchase of just one.

Squishmallows are great for many reasons, but one big one is the fact that there are hundreds of unique Squishmallows to choose from, allowing you to find one that truly speaks to you. Whether its on in the design of your favorite animal or it has a color scheme that perfectly matches your asthetic, there is a Squishmallow out there that is perfect for you.

Additionally, Squishmallow plushies go beyond the capabilities of your average stuffed animal. They’re not only cute, but they are the perfect pillow. The soft material of the outside and the gushy stuffing on the inside make your head feel like it’s resting on a cloud.

Whether you’re looking for a little pillow to rest your head on or a giant pillow that will envelope your whole body, Squishmallows are available in any size you could possibly wish for. Trust me, the first nap you take cuddling up with your Squishmallow will be one of the best naps of your whole life.

Squishmallows are also simply a great decoration to add to your room. Because they come in such a wide variety of designs and sizes, your bound to find one that’ll be the perfect fit in your space. Whether you’re looking for more colorful decoration for your bed or for a little buddy to take up some room at your desk, there is a Squishmallow that fits your vision perfectly.

Lastly, Squishmallows are a great way to reconnect to your inner-child. Some say there comes a point where you’re too old for toys and stuff animals (well, I say you’re never too old).

Plush toys provide a unique comfort that breaks the boundaries of age, and people ages 1-100 deserve to experience this without shame.

Although Squishmallows are collectible and sometimes it’s not easy to find the exact one you’ve had your eye on, you will most definitely be able to find a few cute ones at common stores like Target, Walmart, Hallmark and more.

Although Squishmallows are just stuffed toys, I truly believed they have added a little color to my life that I may have been lacking before. The pop of fun they add to my room in my apartment as well as the physical comfort they provide are things I believe everyone should get the opportunity to experience.

So, next time you’re out shopping, keep an eye out for Squishmallows. Your perfect one may be waiting to be taken back home with you.
