Squishables are a line of plush toys that were first produced in 2007. The plush toys are known for their general large size (though mini versions do exist), and for their trademark round squishy shape. To date, there are 61 (not including the ones no longer in production) of the classic "normal-sized" (around 15 inches) Squishables, with many more designs to be released in the future.

Squishables provides examples of-

  • Amazing Technicolor Wildlife: Most of the Squishables fall under this including bright blue whales, pink axolotls note , turquoise squids, pink cats, and several others.
  • Balloon Belly: The description for the shark plush says that it got so round from eating so much. Then it says not to think too hard about it.
  • Bare-Bottomed Monkey: The retired Baboon, as it's description humorously points out several times, has a big red butt.
  • Bedsheet Ghost: They have one. The Plague Doctor and Reaper also have the general shape.
  • Bigfoot, Sasquatch and Yeti: There's a Yeti Squishable. A Bigfoot Squishable is currently in production.

  • Bowdlerize: The Octopus' description is different on the official website than on the hand tag. The description on the website says "No need to hide the schoolgirls". This was changed on the hand tag for the plush to "No need to hide the anchovies". Most likely because parents probably wouldn't buy a toy that includes references to tentacle rape in the description.
  • Cute Kitten: Several kitty-cat Squishables have been made so far. A white cat, a gray kitten, a pink kitten, and a limited-edition tuxedo cat.
  • Emotion Eater: The Worrible is said to feed on anxiety and stress. Interestingly, it's a rare non-malevolent example as it's said to also excrete a sweet-smelling liquid in exchange that helps its owner relax.
  • Panda-ing to the Audience: Their mascot is a giant panda, and they once had an entire advertising campaign surrounding the release of their red panda plush.
  • Plague Doctor: Comes with a glow-in-the-dark lantern. A Plague Nurse was later made due to its popularity.
  • Poke the Poodle: Deville is supposed to be a devil, but his idea of "evil" is...GASP!....eating an extra cookie!
  • Running Gag: The pufferfish due to its goofy-appearance has been the subject of many "funny caption" images among the Squishable fandom.
  • Satan: There is a red devil (Though it looks more like a teddy bear with horns than a satyr-like being) Squishable that's since been retired. A blue devil-like creature called "Deville" has also been released.
  • Threatening Shark: Played for laughs with the now-retired shark Squishable. The description on the Web site said to not think too hard about how a shark could get so rotund.
  • Turtle Power: There was a turtle Squishable that is long-since retired. Likewise, a sea turtle plush is currently in production.
  • What Measure Is a Non-Cute?: Subverted, as you have squishables of things that one might not think of as "cute" (like axolotls, Bamphomet, spiders, etc) but, if it exists, the company will make it cute.
