Squishmallows restock: Where to find this season's most adorable toys
There's a new hot toy on the collectable stuffed-animal scene: Squishmallows. Squishmallows are super squeezable plush toys that come in a wide range of characters, colors and sizes. There are Disney Squishmallows, seasonal Squishmallows, stackable Squishmallows sets, Flip-A-Mallows (reversible plushies that can flip inside out and turn into a new creature) and plenty of mystery packs.
What Beanie Babies were to the 1990s, and Webkinz and Build-A-Bear were to the 2000s, Squishmallows have taken over as the plush toy of the 2020s. Each animal comes with its own name and storyline, and there are more than 1,000 Squishmallows to collect. But, as the many Tik Tok videos under #Squishmallows will show you, it might be tough to find certain cuddly characters in stock, especially around the holiday shopping season.
Squishmallows are available at a wide range of retailers, including Walmart, Amazon, Target, Claire's and more. If you're searching for a rare or often out-of-stock Squishmallows character, Squish Alert is an app that tracks restocks of the plush toys. You can also sign up for official emails from Squishmallows for news on restocks and new toys.
With the holidays swiftly approaching, and shipping delays looming, depending on where you live, some of these Squishmallows may not arrive in time for Christmas. If you're looking to put something Squishmallows-related under the tree, a gift card to a popular Squishmallows seller such as Amazon is an easy way to still give the gift of Squishmallows this holiday season.
Keep reading to check out some of the season's most adorable toys, including Squishmallows, Lego, LOL Surprise! and more.
