Squishies are a soft toy made of PU foam. Originating in Japan, the toy gained popularity on social media (especially YouTube and Instagram), and are now available at most retail stores. iBloom, Puni Maru, Kiibru, Areedy and Cutie Creative are well known producers of squishies.
The toy itself originally came from the similar product of stress balls. Squishies are manufactured into many different shapes and sizes, and are often modeled after food or other inanimate objects. They are popular among children and adolescents and are used to relieve stress by squishing the toy, as the name implies.
