Kellytoy Answers Call for More International Best-Selling Squishmallows™ Plush Toys
New Squishmallows Babies Set to Join the Loveable Squishmallows “Squad”
Kellytoy is expanding its delightful, award-winning and collectible Squishmallows “squad” ( www.squishmallows.com ) with the introduction of the new Squishmallows Baby line. The new babies are sure to please the ever-growing Squishmallows fan base that has been submitting ideas for new characters and styles at a feverish pace.
Squishmallows are a growing, international phenomenon with more than four million sold since their fall 2017 debut. “The appealing ultra soft outer fabric and super squishy polyester stuffing is a snuggly alternative to high tech toys. Influenced by the Japanese ‘Kawaii’ look, Squishmallows have trended into a collectors delight,” says Kellytoy CEO Jonathan Kelly.
The new Squishmallows Baby line will be available in nine styles—including owls, lambs, bunnies, a chick, elephant and unicorn. Featuring soft pastel colors, the line will be available in two sizes: small (8”) and medium (12”) with a suggested retail price of $9.99 and $19.99, respectively. The eight inch size makes a rattle sound when dropped or shaken.
Like their grown-up brothers and sisters, these Squishmallows babies pop with personality. All characters have their unique background stories detailed on their hangtags and are made of super soft polyester with a marshmallow-like texture.
“Squishmallows are a versatile product and perfect for kids, tweens, collectors and toy lovers of all ages,” says Kelly. “They are soft enough to play catch with, can serve as a bedtime buddy or pillow, and are wonderful friends that help relieve stress and anxiety in times of need.”
My thoughts: I was sent an adorable selection of the new Squishmallows Baby line to review for my sweet three month old baby grand daughter, Reylin Elaine. She is just so precious. I showed her the toys and let her feel them with her pudgy little hands. She was smiling such a beautiful bright smile! Her entire face just it up!
The darling elephant and the unicorn make rattling noises when you shake them, and Reylin loves that! The Squishmallows are the softest and highest quality plush pillow toys I have ever felt. These will be enjoyed for many years to come!

My son, Braxton is eleven years old, and still has problems sleeping at night. It doesn't take much for him to 'show up' in my bedroom at any given time of any given night. It might be that he had a scary dream, but most likely, a scary thought of some sort. Braxton is a deep thinker.
I was thinking about getting him some sort of a comfort pillow that he could cuddle with during the night when he is frightened, and thankfully I got the chance to review Squishmallow plush toys.
Since 2017, the Squishmallows™ collection has offered comfort, support and warmth as a couch companion, pillow pal, bedtime buddy and travel teammate. No need to feel alone, you’ll have a buddy for the movies, the bedtime stories, the laughs and more!
Kellytoy has created a line of loveable buddies made from super soft marshmallow-like texture and polyester (and they’re easily washable).
Squishmallow plush toys are the softest plush animal pillows I have ever felt! You just cannot help but give them a squeeze as soon as you see one! Braxton chose Hoot the Owl, James the Fox, Milly the Monkey and Piper the Penguin (for his new baby niece, Reylin.)
Each character has its own name and its own little character description on the Squishmallows website. You can even register your Squishmallow to become an exclusive member of the Squishmallow Squad!
From the moment he received his Squishmallow pals in the mail, they have been Braxton's constant cuddle buddies ever since. I am so glad he loves them, and I am so happy that he is still at that age where he enjoys stuffed animals. (I know that it won't last, so I am enjoying every moment of his childhood!)
Braxton's Squishmallow pals have already gone camping at the beach with us! They make the most perfect road trip companions because they are the perfect size, shape and softness to lay your head on in the car as you travel.
There is just something special about Squishmallows. I feel as though they were made with love. Braxton has been sleeping with them every single night. They have replaced his normal pillows because of how soft they are.
(He is sleeping with his eyes partly open in this picture. I think my camera flash woke him up a bit.)
Braxton has definitely been sleeping better ever since he received his Squishmallows buddies. They are seriously the most adorable, softest, squishiest and most cuddly plush animal pillows you will ever find! They are perfect cuddle companion for your child, and the perfect gift idea for any special occasion. (Think Easter!)
Enter to win! One winner will receive a random assortment of Squishmallows cuddly plush animal pillows. (ARV: $100)

There are several ways to add punch and impact to what might otherwise be a bland room: you could give it a fresh coat of paint, add a potted plant, or switch out the décor. An easier way to give any room a splash of color or a point of interest is by adding throw pillows. They can make any surface appear instantly inviting. We show you how to take any room from boring to brilliant with throw pillows below:
Keep to a Tight Color Palette
A cohesive color palette guarantees maximum visual impact. Choose decorative throw pillows that keep to the same color spectrum, or in complimentary shades. Use these to adorn your seating areas.
Mix and Match Your Textures
As above, use a common color to tie your throw pillows together, but don’t be afraid to bring in some interest in the form of different patterns and textures. Having them in all the same color can keep it from looking too busy, while still drawing the eye.
Combine Different Sizes
Using different size pillows is also one way of keeping things interesting. To keep the space looking neat and polished, try arranging them in a symmetrical way in order to lessen the haphazard feeling. A rule of thumb that’s easy to remember is keeping your largest pillows on the outside in the furthest corners, getting steadily smaller going inward.
Patterns vs. Solids
You can combine patterned, printed throw pillows with those in a solid color. However, give your room a once-over first. If you already have a busy backdrop, such as a patterned wallpaper, decorative couch covers or elaborate curtains, you may want to tone it down several notches with the pillows. It’s best if the print throw pillows match with the majority of the print already present in the room for cohesion.
Consider the Number of Pillows
You don’t want to have so many pillows on the couch that there won’t be room for people to have a seat. Modern design calls for throw pillows in an odd number, as opposed to having them in pairs, which feels more traditional. Having a few big pillows is also better than having an overabundance of small ones.
Scale the Pillows to the Furniture
Throw pillows that are too big for your couch are actually not a very attractive option – it takes up all the room, making it look as if a person couldn’t sit. Standard 18-inch squares are a neat option for sofas with typical dimensions. If your couch is bigger than normal, scale them up. For love seats and arm chairs, smaller is better.
Yes, the throw pillows are decorative, but pillows are first and foremost all about adding comfort. When you use a stiff filling, you may as well adorn your seats with bricks. While it isn’t necessary to get the priciest inserts, you may want to invest in some that contain a blend of feather, down, or both. These pillows not only provide welcome cushioning for you and your guests but also stay temperate regardless of the climate. For fuller pillows, size up your inserts to give them an overstuffed look that’s warm and inviting.
Throw pillows soften the visual edges of any room and can make any space seem homier. Use them as an affordable way to keep your décor updated and show off your designing flair. How do you decorate with pillows?
