All 25 Axolotl Squishmallows, Ranked by Cuteness
Squishmallows come in a variety of animals and characters — they're basically the new Beanie Babies — and axolotl Squishmallows are the latest obsession. In case you missed it, axolotls are adorable, salamander-like critters that look like living anime characters.
As Squishmallow plush toys, they're even cuter because they're perfect for you to snuggle, squeeze and play with any day of the week. To scope out the next addition for your collection, check out all 25 Squishmallow axolotls released so far. And, yes, we ranked them by cuteness.

Squishdate: June 2, 2021
About Akina: Exclusive to BoxLunch, Akina the axolotl is all about fashion. Her favorite colors are green and blue, which she shows off with her prized shoe collection. We're not sure why she collects shoes, considering she doesn't have feet, but to each their own.
She can be identified by her smattering of stars, blue-trimmed gills and sassy wink.
Color: Lavender with purple polka dots
Size(s): 8", 12", 24"
Squishdate: June 11, 2021
About Amala: Amala loves to chat with any friends who come her way. This light-purple axolotl Squishmallow has a subtle gradient effect, purple spots and a fluffy lilac belly that begs for tummy rubs. Her cat-like mouth and closed eyes are key examples of contentment, particularly when one of her buddies brings her a balloon. Lavender ones are her favorite.
About Caslina: Many axolotl Squishmallows don't have a Squishdate published on the tag, so Caslina's Squishdate is unknown. She joined the Mystery Squad in 2021 as part of a limited-edition release, including six different 8-inch axolotl Squishmallows. It's impossible to know which one you're going to get when you buy a mystery box, so acquiring all six is quite the accomplishment.
Color: Pastel rainbow
Size(s): 11", 14"
About Cressida: Some axolotl Squishmallows can only be purchased at certain retailers. Cressida was exclusive to Target, and her fabric is one of a kind. The light-pink material she's made of is debossed with moons and stars, all of which glow in the dark. Her fluffy rainbow gills match her rainbow belly, and her closed eyes have long curly lashes.
You'd never guess by looking at her that she's mad about anything tech. Cressida dreams of becoming a programmer when she grows up.
Size(s): 3.5", 5", 8", 12"
Squishdate: Dec. 23, 2020
About Irina: Bubbly, aqua-blue Irina may be round, but she's surprisingly agile. Her bright, round eyes are always searching for spots to try out her gymnastics skills. She loves to feel the breeze flow through her pastel, tri-toned gills as she works on her new floor routine and moves to the music. Who knows? Maybe you'll get to see her in the first-ever Squishmallow Olympics someday.
Color: Sky blue with confetti
Squishdate: June 16, 2021
About Clutch: Clutch the axolotl is a blue Squishmallow that can only be purchased at Party City. Perhaps his confetti-printed belly was a hint at his party-tastic roots. He's best buddies with Archie, who happens to be hearing impaired. Clutch helps him out when someone doesn't speak sign language and even taught their soccer team to sign for Archie's birthday. His caring demeanor makes him the ideal plush on long car rides or flights.
Color: Neon green and aqua
Squishdate: Oct. 12, 2021
About Althea: Althea the axolotl is bright as can be. Exclusive to Walmart, the lime-green Squishmallow is always on the go. She has a hard time sleeping at night, so she's always sipping coffee during the day. Starbucks run, anyone? We can't think of any stuffed animal better to go with than Althea, especially since her shiny, turquoise belly is the perfect shade for summer.
Color: Hot pink and purple with white speckles
About Ally: Ally the axolotl is such a sweetheart. Her striped fabric looks like a berry-colored galaxy, complete with white stars scattered on top. Her furry, frilled gills match her pale-pink belly, and her cheerful face is sure to bring a smile to your face.
She's another member of the Mystery Squad, but there's nothing mysterious about her favorite activities. She's a soft plush with a unique personality that loves friends, family, coffee and shopping trips.
Color: Rainbow gradient
About Aika: Some Squishmallows are homebodies, others are girly girl, and others still are avid adventurers. Aika the axolotl loves to run, especially on the beach or along secluded mountain trails. After a race or two, she likes sunbathing in the warm, summer sand. Our only wish is that she came in a bigger size.
Color: Rose pink and white
Size(s): 4.5", 12"
Squishdate: Aug. 11, 2021
About Aleka: Some Squishmallows are extra hard to find because they were only released for certain holidays. Aleka came from the 2022 Valentine's Day collection, complete with soft, pink fur and embroidered hearts. Aleka's favorite pastime is rather romantic: She makes candles! She started doing it just for fun, but they smelled so good that she now concocts specialty candles for all her friends.
Color: Grey with spots
About Avana: All axolotl Squishmallows are soft, but Avana is the biggest softie of them all. The grey spotted Squishmallow looks like a baby seal thanks to her fluffy, white belly, and watching tearjerkers is her idea of the perfect movie night. She has a big heart like that. She also has a flair for the dramatic, if you couldn't guess by her sparkly silver crown and matching gills.
Plus, her ultrasoft, high-quality materials make her ready to squeeze and play; bring this adorable plush on long car rides, airplanes and train rides, and you won't regret it.
Color: Light pink
Size(s): 2", 2.5", 3.5", 5", 7", 7.5", 8", 11", 12", 14", 16", 20", 24"
Squishdate: July 13, 2021
About Archie: Archie the axolotl looks practically ordinary compared to most of the Squishmallows on this list, but he's one of our favorites. He's the quintessential axolotl Squishmallow, with a light-pink body and bright-pink gills that closely match the look of a real axolotl.
There are several editions of Archie released exclusively at different retailers, including a Cracker Barrel Archie, a Party City Archie and a few different size and color variations. All of them, however, love to play soccer and speak fluent sign language.
Color: Mint green
Size(s): 5". 10", 12", 16", 20"
Squishdate: Sept. 16, 2020
About Anastasia: Anastasia looks a lot like Archie, only mint green instead of pink. She comes from the Easter Squad, and her 5-inch and 12-inch sizes were made with shimmering white gills instead of silver ones. She's the most meticulously organized Squishmallow ever born, helping her friends plan projects and stay on task. Procrastinators, we found the Squishmallow for you.
Size(s): 3.5”, 5", 7.5", 8", 10", 12", 14”, 20”
About Monica: Monica is a light-purple Squishmallow from the Easter Squad. Her clip version and 20-inch version are exclusive to Target, while her 14-inch version can only be purchased at Walmart. She's also sold in Canada and Australia with sparkly gills.
Monica is a rockstar at heart, but no one has bothered to buy her a drum set. Will you be the one to make her dreams come true?
Color: Hot pink
Squishdate: Oct. 6, 2021
About Florent: Florent the axolotl looks a bit different than most Squishmallows, and that's because he's a Squishdoo. Squishdoos are a series of Squishmallows that are exceptionally furry. In Florent's case, it's his gills that are far fluffier than most. Florent loves to make people laugh, cracking jokes that even his teachers can't resist laughing at.
Color: Blue ombre
Size(s): 5", 8"
About Tobey: Tobey, a blue Squishmallow from the Mystery Squad, has eyes unlike any other axolotl Squishmallow. They're big, sparkling and full of wonder. The little Squishmallow's favorite activities are all related to blueberries: picking blueberries, baking blueberry muffins and eating them, of course.
Color: Rainbow swirls
Squishdate: Nov. 3, 2021
About Vivie: Vivie is a bit of a beach bum. She spends her days lounging at the beach, building sandcastles and playing the day away. She's quite the free spirit and won't hesitate to dress up in sea kelp to give her friends a fit of the giggles.
Color: Rainbow swirls
Squishdate: July 19, 2021
About Delphine: Delphine looks an awful lot like Vivie, but her rainbow swirl pattern is slightly different. She also has "I love you Alotl" embroidered on her belly. She's a big fan of Valentine's Day and aspires to recreate the holiday on a daily basis. She even eats chocolate before every meal. Milk chocolate has too much sugar, sadly, so she's trying to switch to dark. Get those antioxidants, Delphine!
7. Miss Vi
Color: Blue ombre
Size(s): 5", 8", 12", 16"
About Miss Vi: Often mixed up with Tobey, Miss Vi shares his blue ombre vibes but with a traditional Squishmallow face. Despite her soothing color scheme, Miss Vi is a firecracker. She's nicknamed "the snack monster" since she's obsessed with snacks, and she sings and dances whenever she gets the chance ... especially down the snack aisle at the grocery store.
Color: Sage green
Squishdate: Nov. 13, 2021
About Chasmen: Chasman the axolotl exudes elegance to the gills. He adores bright colors, getting his nails done and wearing long, flowing dresses that show off his subtle sage skin tone. He only comes in a 16-inch size, and we hope Squishmallow releases a mini version. We'd love to take his contagious confidence everywhere we go.
Size(s): 3.5", 5", 8”, 12”, 16”
About Nico: Nico the axolotl Squishmallow is as bright as a goldfish. The vibrant, tangerine orange plushie is an artist at heart. He's always working on new projects or trying new art classes to brush up on his painting skills. If he's not wearing a painting smock, he's donning an apron to get creative with new, tasty recipes in the kitchen.
Color: Neon yellow
Size(s): 3.5", 5", 12", 16"
About Treyton: Treyton the axolotl is a bright, lemon-yellow Squishmallow from the Easter Squad. Strangely, there's also a version of Treyton in which he's a bearded dragon instead of an axolotl. Treyton is obsessed with jazz, funny prank videos and nibbling on homemade grilled cheese sandwiches. Yum!
Color: Rainbow tie dye
Size(s): 5", 12"
About Tinley: Tinley might be rainbow, but deep down, she's red, green and white. Her Italian Noni inspired her to learn to cook, and she named her very first dish Noni's Pasta in her honor. Today, Tinley the axolotl is the head chef at an upscale new eatery. Pass the parmesan, please!
Size(s): 5", 12"
About Jaelyn: You don't have to be crazy for color to adopt an axolotl Squishmallow. Jaelyn is jet black aside from her cream-colored tummy and frilled pink gills. This cool, classic character is also a master at the timeless art of juggling. She travels the country to attend competitions and recently won first place for juggling, not three, not four but 17 candy bars. We know who's handing out candy this Halloween.
Color: Rainbow zebra print
About Gawa: Gawa, another member of the Squishmallow Mystery Squad, is attached at the hip with Caslina. The pair loves to attend tea parties together, and Gawa plans on becoming a party planner when she grows up. And those rainbow zebra stripes are just the cutest.
