I must preface this by saying, I have never, in my entire life, typed the word “squishy” as much as I have this evening.
With that out of the way, on to the box! This box promises 6 squishy Kawaii toys every month, and they deliver on that! I received 6 toys: 4 keychains and 2 phone charms.
Heart cellphone charm squishy – 6.99?
I was able to find something similar to the panda squishy, but not the heart, so I’m estimating here!
I think these are adorable (I have a feeling I will be using that term quite a bit in this review!). They are so soft, and yes, squishy, that they would be great stress relief squeeze toys! I am not one to attach dangly things to my cellphone, so these will probably be put at my desk for the aforementioned usage, or given to a little one to enjoy!
This little bread squishy is so cute! The color of the bread even seems realistic, which kind of impresses me…maybe I’m just easily impressed, but they did a great job of making this look real!
This little pastry keychain is also super cute. It has little balls around the bottom of the ‘whipped cream,’ and they are falling off. I don’t think this one would last long as a keychain and still look quite as adorable. It’s a little fragile!
Unidentifiable squishy – $5.69?
This little turtle is adorable, and I know just who I am going to give this keychain to. My younger sister has three turtles – I think she needs this on her keychain!
So I must be honest with you, and admit that I cannot identify what this squishy is supposed to be – It is cute, though! What do you think it is?
The verdict: I think this box is adorable. If my estimates are somewhat accurate for the two items I guessed on, the value comes out to $32.33 this month. The biggest issue I found though while researching pricing is that the cost to buy Kawaii squishies varies wildly around the internet! Amazon seemed to be very high while eBay was very low – I partially understand the discrepancy, but I have a feeling the markup on these is quite high! If I were to look at it from the standpoint of “Would I spend $32.33 on these items in the store?” the answer would probably be no. With that said, these are very cute items and only one of them seems like it would fall apart quickly.
I think that the audience for this box is going to be smaller than say, Popsugar, but I think it does fit a niche that isn’t represented much yet!
What do you think about The Squishy Box? I’d love to hear your thoughts!
