Most Popular Squishmallows People Love Today
Remember the Beanie Baby craze of the 1990s? The Squishmallow craze is like that but bigger, better and so much softer.
Made by Kelly Toys, Squishmallows are super soft, squishy stuffies that range in size between a petite 3.5 inches and snuggly 24 inches. New editions come out all the time, so Squishmallows have even turned into collectibles. The cute Squishmallows have become so popular that, in October 2021, the company announced it had already sold 100 million of them since launching the stuffed toy in 2017. And they're still selling.
These are the most popular Squishmallows out of the more than 1,000 different characters, and they make the perfect gift for Easter, birthdays, baby showers or any occasion. Which is your favorite?
Patty the Cow
Patty the Cow has become somewhat of a collector's item as one of the few pink Squishmallow cows in existence.
She also happens to look like Jenny the Cow, a controversial Squishmallow that actually wasn't a Squishmallow at all. Leave it to the readers of Reddit to bring controversy to Squishmallows, but Jenny the Cow was under scrutiny for being a fake after being listed on a fake Squishmallow website.
While Patty is very much real, Kelly Toys better tone down the cuteness before their next cow Squishmallow moooo-ves us to tears.
Grrrr! The Bigfoot Squishmallow is more sweet than scary, honestly. He (or she) has soft, floppy ears, big eyes, no arms and (duh) two big feet.
His neutral color makes him a popular Squishmallow for gifts or for yourself. Who doesn’t want a stuffy that effortlessly matches their decor?
The force is strong with this popular Squishmallow. Baby Yoda was everyone’s unofficial obsession throughout 2020, and the plushie version is just as popular.
Baby Yoda Squishmallow doesn’t talk or move, but he does come with the powerful force of snuggability.
Shiba Inus look a bit like a sassy fox-dog hybrid. The Shiba Inu Squishmallow is just as lovable.
His white tummy and soft, squeezable ears make him the ideal movie-watching buddy.
Grey Easter Bunny
While this popular Squishmallow was originally made for Easter, she’s neutral enough to keep in your room all year long.
Her long, silky ears are soothing to hold, and her sweet, sleepy face might help you drift off to dreamland, too.
Any kid knows that Pegasus is cooler than a unicorn. Why, you ask? Pegasus can fly!
This pink, popular Squishmallow is cuter than cupcakes.
Just don’t take a bite.
Unicorns might be overdone, but bunnycorns are all the rage. The pastel pink of this popular Squishmallow is subtle enough for any room, but it goes particularly well with other pastel shades.
If you know someone who’s doing the ballet pink and light gray nursery theme, this bunnycorn will make a dreamy addition to a baby shower.
Aw, look at his ears. The Harrison Dog Squishmallow is ultra-huggable and has the color of a classic teddy bear.
It’s a solidly gender-neutral stuffy, but Harrison Dog is an especially popular Squishmallow for boys.
Obviously, boys can like pink kittens and girls can like blue puppies, but puppies remain wildly popular in the rooms of baby boys.
Who says a fluffy can’t be fierce?
If you want a Squishmallow that tells the world, "I’m ferocious, but I still love hugs," this Dragon Squishmallow is the one for you.
Charlie the Terrier
Charlie the Terrier was launched as part of the Squishmallow Dogs Squad.
With a cute little black spot around his eye and a pink tummy, we think he's one of the cutest Squishmallow dogs to date.
Prince the Pug
Pugs are a polarizing dog breed if ever we've seen one, but it's hard not to like the sweet face of Prince the Pug.
Another endearing dog Squishmallow, Prince supposedly has a playful personality and loves hitting the monkey bars.
Ace the Turquoise Unicorn
He's big, he's blue, and he can't wait to snuggle you! Ace, a unicorn Squishmallow, is turquoise blue with a white tummy and a pink horn.
He loves to act and play football. What can't this multitalented unicorn do?
Archie the Axolotl
Haven't you heard? Axolotl Squishmallows are all the rage. Archie the Axolotl looks just like a real axolotl, minus the expensive aquarium.
A real axolotl probably wouldn't want to sleep on your bed, either.
Anastasia the Axolotl
Axolotl Squishmallows are like chocolate chip cookies. You can't have just one. Anastasia is a pale aqua color with metallic ears? Gills?
We're not quite sure what those are, but whatever they are, they're cute.
Autumn the Black Cat
Hailing from the Squishmallow Halloween squad, Autumn looks much spookier than she is. Her black body and purple accents give off witchy October vibes, but she's actually quite sweet.
She loves to sleep in and curl up beside you on dark, rainy evenings.
Brooke the Polar Bear
No one is too old for a Squishmallow pillow, but bright colors and glitter can be a bit much. Brooke the Polar Bear is much more subdued.
Her soft, cream-colored coat is perfect for those who don't want a 16-inch rainbow pillow lying around.
Cali the Caticorn
Do you believe in caticorns? Cali the Caticorn is a colorful, tie-dye Squishmallow with a matching horn.
She's supposedly an insomniac, but you wouldn't know it from her closed eyes.
Maybe rub her ears to help her fall asleep?
Carson the Grey Cat
The Squishmallow Valentine Squad is one of the most popular Squishmallow lines. Each Valentine Squishmallow is adorned with hearts, including Carson the Grey Cat.
He has "xoxo" embroidered on his belly, too, to remind a special someone just how much he loves them.
Charlotte the Calico Cat
Squishmallow cats are uber-popular, and it's not hard to see why. Charlotte the Calico Cat is from the Squishmallow Easter Squad.
She looks just like an Easter egg with light pink and lavender spots. She doesn't have any chocolate eggs inside, but unlike chocolate, she doesn't melt.
Mauve the Alpaca
Mauve isn't exactly mauve. This pink alpaca Squishmallow is simple and subtle, with a cream-colored face and little rosy cheeks.
Understated, but ultra-cute.
Destiny the Dragon
Who says blue has to be a boy color? Destiny the Dragon Squishmallow loves to soar high in the sky with her marbleized, blue wings.
She doesn't look the most aerodynamic, but we're not complaining.
Dante the Demon
For a demon Squishmallow, Dante is awfully cute. Needless to say, this ferocious little beast is part of the Squishmallow Halloween Squad. He's red, black and wickedly cute.
The only thing scary about him is his love of hot sauce. No one can handle the heat of his signature hot wings.
Duchess the Deer
Ah, another member of the Squishmallow Valentine Squad. A deer might seem like a Christmas thing, but not Duchess.
Duchess the Deer Squishmallow is pretty and pink with sparkly antlers. Her ideal day is a trip to the spa.
Hans the Hedgehog
Don't let the evil Prince Hans from Disney's Frozen sway you. Hans the Hedgehog Squishmallow is nothing like him in the slightest.
This handsome Hans looks like a cross between a bear and a hamster, and we're here for it. His spikes look like chocolate sprinkles for an extra dose of "awww!"
Humphrey the Hamster
Introverts, Humphrey the Hamster Squishmallow totally gets you. Home is his happy place. The golden brown stuffy loves to read and work on his screenplays.
Squishmallow sizes vary from 3.5 inches to 16 inches, so you can keep one Humphrey on your desk and another on your dash.
Kayce the Pandacorn
Are we sensing a theme here? Squishmallow unicorns are a fan favorite, and who says unicorns have to be horses? Kayce the Pandacorn Squishmallow is a cross between a panda and unicorn.
She has a shiny, silver horn, and stunning wings to match. Doesn't that technically make her a pegasus? A pegacorn? A Pansusicorn? You get it.
Simon the Sloth
Simon the Sloth Squishmallow is slow and sleepy, and we wouldn't have it any other way.
His neutral color scheme makes him a perfect snuggle buddy for kids and grownups alike.
Lulu the Pineapple
All Squishmallows are sweet, but this time we mean it literally. Lulu Pineapple, part of the Squishmallow Fruit Squad, has a sunny smile and looks good enough to eat.
She's one of the most popular food Squishmallows. With her color combo of bright yellow and pink, she's just the right stuffy to add to your summer collection.
Chanel the Cinnamon Roll
Yum, cinnamon. If you want to take Chanel the Cinnamon Roll home, you'll have to find this Claire's Squishmallow at the store.
Claire's is the only place you can get her. For any lover of pastries, she's worth the trip.
Austin the Avocado
He's lean, he's mean, he's green? Austin the Avocado Squishmallow has become a cult classic.
Millennials got a reputation for obsessing over avocado toast, so tease them with Austin the Avocado.
He's too snuggly to stay mad at for long.
Bernise the Boba Tea
Mmmmm, boba. Bernise the Boba Tea Squishmallow looks a bit like a Frappuchino.
Unlike some of the larger Squishmallow sizes, Bernise stays small. She's only available in the 5-inch and 12-inch size.
Put her on your desk at work, and no one will even notice.
Floyd the French Fry
Another exclusive Claire's Squishmallow, Floyd the French Fry is as addictive as the real thing.
Floyd has become a popular gift for fast food fans everywhere.
Can I get a shake with that?
Marcellus the Cactus
Succulents are popular because they're almost impossible to kill. If you need a plant that's literally unkillable, though, try Marcellus the Cactus Squishmallow.
He's way cuter than a real cactus, and much less painful to hold.
Malcolm the Mushroom
Just look at that face. Malcolm the Mushroom Squishmallow is covered in polka dots, and the stitching that makes up his small smile matches his cap.
This mushroom Squishmallow goes well with other woodland-themed stuffies, like fairies and dragons.
Maggie the Stingray
Out of all the Squishmallows, Maggie the Stingray might be the nicest to hold. The light aqua stingray has big, soft fins that are just the right size for snuggling.
She doesn't come in any of the larger Squishmallow sizes, but that just makes her a more portable snuggle buddy.
Diego the Teal Elephant
For anyone who has dreamed of having an elephant for a pet, Diego the Teal Elephant is just the right size. Plus, he's much easier to feed.
He's sort of a seafoam green color that reminds us a little of mint chocolate chip ice cream.
Delfina the Sugar Skull
Delfina might look scary, but she has a heart of gold.
Part of the Halloween Squad, Delfina loves candy, colorful costumes and the season of spookiness.
Cinnamon the Frozen Yoghurt
Fro-yo is always a tasty treat, but it's not ideal for snuggling. Cinnamon the Frozen Yogurt is one of the most popular Squishmallows for this very reason.
She as sinfully sweet as real fro-yo, minus the stickiness.
Cici the Red Panda
The only problem with red pandas is that they don't make very good pets. (Or not legal ones, at least.)
Cici the Red Panda is one of the cutest Squishmallows out there, and she comes in five sizes.
Charlize the Cockatiel
Just look at that beak. Just look at those eyes. If you fall instantly in love with Charlize the Cockatiel Squishmallow, we won't blame you.
The yellow and gray stuffy has cute, fluffy wings and a sunny disposition to cheer you up on gray days.
Cherry the Cherry
Cherry is, obviously, a cherry. Part of the Squishmallow Fruit Squad, she's sometimes called a plum instead of a cherry.
Either way, her soft, pinkish self cute as can be.
Just don't take a bite.
Celine the Chicken
Lots of people toy with the idea of getting a chicken so that they can have fresh eggs every morning, but they're so much work. Not Celine.
Celine the Squishmallow chicken is plump, round and has a button of a yellow beak.
Better yet, she never poops like a real chicken.
Carol the Christmas Tree
Do you name your Christmas trees? Carol the Christmas Tree Squishmallow got her name from her love of caroling. Fitting, isn't it?
This Squishmallow from the Christmas Squad is the perfect new addition to your arsenal of Christmas decorations.
Carl the Cheeseburger
There's no food in the U.S. that's more of a national trademark than the cheeseburger, and Carl the cheeseburger is ready to represent.
This popular Squishmallow has a sesame bun, melty cheese, lettuce, tomatoes and a patty, of course.
He only comes in the 12-inch size, but how big of a burger do you really need?
Cannon the Candy Corn
Even people who don't like candy corn can't get enough of this cute Squishmallow.
Cannon the Candy Corn has such a cute face that it's impossible to resist.
Brittany the Narwhal
Brittany the blue narwhal has giant, cartoon eyes and a magical horn. What's really magical is how cute this popular Squishmallow is.
She has two pink circles on her cheeks and the softest, white belly imaginable.
Bella the Spider
Don't run away yet. Sure, Bella the Spider Squishmallow from the Halloween Squad has eight legs, but they're far from creepy or crawly.
They're so short that all she uses them for is waving at friends.
Avery the Mallard
Duck! Avery the Mallard Squishmallow is flying your way.
He doesn't look the most aerodynamic, but he supposedly loves to fly and play rugby.
And snuggle, of course.
Arturo the Watermelon
Arturo, one of the most popular Squishmallows, was first released in Mexico.
This friend has a sombrero and a big mustache that wiggles when he eats his favorite tamales with his family.
Antoni the Turtle
Turtles don't usually have hair, but Antoni the Turtle Squishmallow does. The white tuft of fur on top of his head matches his cream-colored tummy to a tee.
According to Squishmallow lore, he's quite the creative creature. Next time you play with blocks, ask him to join.
Carmelita the S'more
Carmelita the S'more reminds you of summer with every cuddle. She's a big, squishy marshmallow sandwiched between melted chocolate and graham crackers.
She's just like the real thing, except she won't leave crumbs on your bed.
Plus, real s'mores don't have round, pink cheeks. Usually.
Dixie the Dalmatian
You'd think she'd be more into Disney, but Dixie the Dalmatian can't get enough sci-fi. Aside from binge watching Netflix, she loves drawing and hopes to be an architect one day.
While many Squishmallows have small, black eyes, Dixie has giant cartoon eyes and long lashes that pop against her spots.
She also comes with a pale pink bow on each ear.
Cinnamon the Frozen Yoghurt
Cinnamon and Carmelita are best friends, and it's easy to see why. They're both sweet, summery treats, and they both look good enough to eat.
Cinnamon is bright pink with whipped cream on top and red sprinkles. We're just wondering what flavor she really is.
Does cinnamon frozen yogurt really exist? She looks more like strawberry to us.
Chip the Beaver
Chip the Beaver is one of the most popular Squishmallows because of how simple and sweet he looks. He's brown and tan, just like a real beaver, and his long whiskers and round eyes say it all.
Like a real beaver, Chip loves to help. Unlike a real beaver, he wants to help by designing airplanes, not building dams.
If you don't recognize what this Squishmallow is at first glance, don't feel bad. It looks somewhat like a watermelon, but it's actually a chili pepper. Chili Pepper is one of the few Squishmallows that wasn't named by Kelly Toys.
It was released as part of the Mexican Exclusives collection, featuring a green, white and red bow and a green stem. This pepper might have a sweet face, but don't take a bite unless you're ready for a little spice.
Cherish the Elephant
Cherish the Elephant loves to roller skate. Take her down by the beach to roll out on the strand and enjoy a sunny picnic by the sea. Don't forget to bring along her favorite peanut butter and banana sandwich.
To add a little flair to her gray and white color scheme, designers lined her ears with sparkly silver.
Chelsea the Cheetah
Cheetah print usually comes in shades of gold, brown and black, but Chelsea the Cheetah has way too much personality for that. Part of the Valentine Squad, Chelsea has a blue body and bright pink spots that perfectly match her nose.
Her idea of a perfect night includes chilling on the couch with popcorn, movies and her favorite friends.
Chauncy the Chihuahua
Chauncy the Chihuahua isn't smiling on the outside, but we know how he really feels. This tan Squishmallow from the Valentine Squad has nothing but love to give.
When he grows up, he hopes to become a superhero. If his superpower is snuggles, that's 100 percent a realistic goal.
Celia the Orange
Orange you glad we didn't say banana? This pastel orange citrus fruit Squishmallow is crazy about summer. Her favorite activity is going to the amusement park on the boardwalk.
She loves all the rides, even the scariest ones. If you take her on a trip to Six Flags, she might not ever want to leave.
Cecilia the Swan
Don't tell Cecilia, but we didn't realize she was a swan. Aren't swans usually white? We thought she was a bluebird. Whatever she is, she has a bright yellow beak and a sparkly silver crown that looks fit for a princess.
Considering she loves fantasy films and decorated her bedroom like a castle, the royal accessory suits her perfectly.
Carlos the Crab
Carlos is a crab of many talents. He teaches salsa dancing and travels the world writing about food and culture. He's bright red with a white belly, six small legs and two claws.
If Carlos comes to live with you, we have a question for him: How does the salsa work with so many legs?
Bruce the Walrus
A happy brown walrus with whiskers and a button nose, Bruce is tougher than he looks. Bruce is an Alaskan travel guide, taking travelers on tours of his native habitat via kayak.
You'd think he'd just swim next to the kayak since he's a walrus, but to each his own.
Brina the Bigfoot
Who says Bigfoot has to be a boy? Brina the Bigfoot has cotton candy pink fur framing her cream-colored face. Her wide smile spreads across her entire face in anticipation of her favorite food: snow cones.
The pads on her feet are shaped like hearts, and she has two curly eyelashes on each eye. She's one of the happiest Squishmallows around, except that she's always waiting for winter.
Bristle the Bear
Bristle the Bear is another wintery Squishmallow. She's a soft shade of gray with sparkly silver lining her small, rounded ears.
You'd think a bear would be plenty warm enough in the winter, but Bristle wears a mint green and white scarf to stay extra cozy.
Gordon the Shark
Don't worry, he doesn't bite. Gordon the Shark Squishmallow is the opposite of scary. Sure, he has the fins of a shark, but he has the heart of a kind, lovable whale.
He loves nothing more than helping his friends. According to Squishmallow lore, he even hopes to start his own nonprofit one day.
Gina the Gingerbread Girl
Part of the Christmas Squad, Gina the Gingerbread is one of the most popular Squishmallows around the holidays.
She looks like a typical gingerbread girl with candy buttons and white icing, except she's completely round for added huggability.
Her striped scarf looks just like a candy cane, and her plush red bow completes the package.
George the Boston Terrier
George the Boston Terrier is always on the go. Much like a real Boston terrier, he has tons of energy and will happily talk your ear off.
His bold, black and white look makes him stand out from the crowd, so if he runs off, you should be able to find him without a problem.
Since he's all black, his eyes are rimmed with white so you can see them properly.
Freddie the Zebra
When Freddie the Zebra joined the ranks of the Squishmallow Jungle Squad, he had no idea how popular he would become. His shaggy, black mane and stripy coat are just too adorable to resist.
After making lots of new Squishmallow friends, Freddie decided to start a band. He's the lead guitarist, because how could you be anything else with hair like his?
Francis the Lion
Francis the Lion is a popular choice for baby boy rooms. His golden coat and brown mane go with most color schemes, but Francis is anything but ordinary.
He's actually a firefighter, protecting every Squishmallow friend in town. When he's not out rescuing stuffies, you can find him reading comics and chilling on the porch.
Fletcher the Pterodactyl
At first glance, Fletcher looks like a sea turtle with a strangely pointy shell. That's because he's not a sea turtle at all. He's a pterodactyl.
Fletcher the Pterodactyl rocks a pastel blue and green tie-dye with bright, apple green on his belly, wings and beak. The backs of his wings have metallic spots to remind everyone that he is, in fact, a ferocious dinosaur.
We aren't buyin' it.
Farina the Fox
Farina the Fox is a popular Squishmallow from the Christmas Squad. Don't tell the others, but she's probably our favorite Squishmallow fox, period.
Most Squishmallows are made of the same plush, velvety material, but Farina has a touch of white fluff on her belly. Her ears are also lined with sparkly silver.
We're assuming she's an arctic fox, so save her as a gift for the first day of December to warm up the winter weather with a smile.
Elton the Peach Monkey
Elton the Peach Monkey is a Zoo Squad Squishmallow. We love his sweet, peach-colored face and round, holdable ears.
Elton loves tinkering with toys, and we think he'd make a perfect baby shower gift. What baby wouldn't love a monkey as cute as him?
Elysa the Snail
Elysa the Snail is made for relaxation. As a snail, moving through life slowly is her specialty. She's an expert at appreciating the small things in life, and would be content to sit by the ocean and share a deep conversation or two.
Her blue and purple tie-dyed shell and sparkly belly add a sprinkle of magic to her look, and her two, soft antennae are particularly soothing to hold.
Gustavus the Dog
Ever seen gray and black tie-dye? Gustavus the Dog makes it look amazing.
Gustavus is a quiet soul with a soft, tie-dyed body and ultra-fluffy gray ears.
He also has a gray splotch around one of his round, black eyes.
Henley the Alicorn
For those of us who wanted a unicorn with wings as a kid (or now, we won't judge), it turns out there's a name for it. Alicorns are mythical unicorn-pegasus hybrids, and that's exactly what Henley is.
She has two shiny, hot pink wings that match her tiny horn and curled ears. The rest of her is pink and orange tie-dye, with a soft white nose and belly. Her closed eyes give her a particularly serene expression.
Maybe she's dreaming about flying through the clouds at sunset. She'd fit right in.
