Squishmallows are adorable fluffy stuffed animals that come in various shapes and sizes. Since their introduction into mainstream culture in 2005, Squishmallows have taken off, with celebrities like Kim Kardashian embracing them for their collections.

At the core of Squishmallow production is materials acquisition - this requires indirect energy such as fossil fuels for making polyester and spandex fabrics, while direct energy sources provide energy needed to create them.

Squishmallows come in sizes that span from 3.5-inches to 24-inches, making them great cuddling companions or bedtime partners. Furthermore, Squishmallows even offers large-sized squishies which provide people who need an extra hug an opportunity for snuggling close.

There are various squishmallow squads, such as the fruit squad with characters such as Phyllis the Peach, Maui Pineapple and Wanda Watermelons; as well as sealife squad with 23 plushies like Lucille the Seal.

Each Squishmallow features its own distinct name and personality on its tag, making it easier than ever to locate the perfect Squishy for you. Some are more rare than others - Caedyn the Valentine Cow or Mariah Sheep Squishies may be hard to come by as they were only released at certain stores or for limited times; Chanel Cinnamon Roll Squishy was only made available through some Aldi grocery stores in Canada; its design features a heart-shaped pastry covered with heart-shaped icing with rosey cheeks for maximum impact!

How to make squishmallows

Since their release in 2017, Squishmallows have taken the internet by storm, prompting an enthusiastic collection and creating online communities dedicated to them. But what exactly makes these stuffed creatures irresistible? Could it be their marshmallow-like texture or is there another factor at work here that keeps them so adorable?

Squishmallows are filled with an ultra soft polyester and spandex blend fabric designed to rebound after being squeezed, providing added safety to children. Furthermore, their filling is flame retardant for added peace of mind.

Hand assembled using human labor and machine processes, squishmallows are composed of raw materials such as polyester - made from petroleum-based synthetic fibers that end up in landfills or the ocean (Who What Wear). Their manufacturing also involves heat, electricity and chemicals that require attention. Therefore, to extend their lifespan and preserve their fluffy marshmallow-like quality it's crucial that they're handled carefully and regularly cleaned using damp cloth and mild detergent solutions.

Squishmallow production occurs in typical factory settings, where workers and machines combine secondary materials into finished goods. Polyester fabric is the main component used in producing squishmallows, which requires significant energy usage during its creation process and may contribute to air pollution and climate change.

Squishmallows are nonbiodegradable toys, creating waste management issues. Their durability means they last longer than other plush toys and can be donated or resold, which helps reduce overall consumer waste as discussed by numerous posts and articles about sustainable toy consumption.
