What is the Squish in the Squishmallow?
The company started making Squishmallows in 2017. They found their popularity during the Covid Era. They started in Walgreens by the company KellyToys.
I was just given my first Squishmallow and so only now I have the question: What is in a Squishmallow that gives it the special squish?!
Here’s a fun bit I found on REDDIT of people trying to figure out what was inside of them that makes them unlike other stuffed animals.
Squishmallows are actually made of a mix of spandex and polyester. So, no, it isn’t just polyfill. You are right to think there is a difference. The Ultra-soft spandex provides the rebound of the SQUISH!
Have fun getting your squish on. So far I’ve avoided buying one of the huge ones at Costco, but they’re pretty enticing.
