Do you need a squishy in your life? Read to find out
Are you confused by the word ‘squishy’?
Or perhaps you know what it means, and you’re just confused by the idea of it? If you’re not up to date with the latest trends in kawaii culture, you would be forgiven for not knowing exactly what a ‘squishy’ is – but don’t panic – Tofu Cute is here to explain to you exactly why squishies are awesome, and why Puni Maru provides some of the best available on the market!

For the last year, Tofu Cute has had the privilege of stocking a wide range of ‘squishies’– a type of product that has increased in popularity over the last few years – as the name might suggest –‘squishies’ are in essence a highly ‘squishable’ thing of some sort – they come in all sorts of shapes, sizes, styles and themes, ranging from a jumbo ice cream to a tiny squishy ‘timekeeper’ owl.
What's the point?
The appeal of the squishy is hard to describe, but if you get your hands on one, you’ll soon realise what all the hype is about (if not, you might lack the ability to feel joy). The soft, squishy texture of an average squishy is very satisfying to push down and watch rise back up, and this effect will differ depending on if it is ‘slow rising’ or ‘fast rising’ or somewhere in-between. ‘Slow rising’ squishies will stay in the position you mould them into for up to 30 seconds (sometimes more!). Many squishy fans will suggest that this type of ‘slow rise’ squishy is the best kind, but it really comes down to personal preference.

The act of squeezing a squishy is soothing. It’s probably a great way to help relieve stress and a great reminder to relax once in a while. Tofu Cute currently stocks squishies in all different sizes – from cute keychain squishies to giant sized squishies. If you’ve never owned a squishy before, you can start with any size you want, but you might want to get a less costly, smaller squishy, to see if this is your sort of thing!
What is Puni Maru?
Puni Maru is a brand that produces a wide range of the world’s most popular squishies, including many Tofu Cute customer favourites. Puni Maru squishies are high quality and respected in the growing community of squishy fans, as each Puni Maru squishy series is unique, with lots of different kawaii animals, foods and much more available as cute squishies, each with a different scent, texture and personal charm. Puni Maru also loves to make interesting posts on their Instagram, revealing cute details about their different characters and exciting previews of upcoming squishies, so give them a follow!

So if you want to get yourself a squishy, why not try starting with one of the following Puni Maru favourites?
Squishy Mini Scented Ice Cream Charm
If you want only a small squishy to begin your journey, this is a great option, especially if you love ice cream! These cute little charms come in three cute varieties – Strawberry Wafer Cup, Triple Ice Cream Cone and Sundae Ribbon Cup. Whatever type of ice cream you like, there’s a small squishy charm for you to carry around with you, with a deliciously sweet scent that is released upon squishing – these squishies return to their original shape within 3-12 seconds!
Scented Squishy Uniwhale Narwhal
If you’re looking for something slightly bigger to squish, these excellent Uniwhale Narwhals might satisfy that craving – these cute medium sized squishies are super kawaii narwhals that come in a cute mix of colours, ranging from ‘Sprinkly Blue’ (which come covered in delicious sprinkles, of course), Pearly Purple and the eccentric Magical Rainbow! These squishies are as soft as they are shiny and colourful, and would be a great fit for fans of the humble narwhal!~
Squishy Jumbo Monkey Doughnut
This larger size squishy is a doughnut styled to look like a cheeky monkey (or a monkey made to look like a doughnut?!). These cute squishies do a good job of mimicking a doughnut covered in a rich icing with sprinkles – they certainly look delicious enough to eat, but these doughnuts are purely for squishing!
Mini Timekeeper Owl
The mini timekeeper owl lives up to its name! These cute, small owl squishies watch the clock with unblinking eyes. These owls are tiny but so incredibly adorable! These squishies, unlike others on this list, are fast-rising, meaning they will spring back to their original shape very quickly.
These squishies are all amazing products to start your squishy journey with, so any one of them would be a good pick. We’ve got plenty of other squishies, too, including Jumbo Squishy Peaches and the Giant Unicorn Cake. Regardless of which squishy you start with, you’ll soon find yourself a fully-fledged squishy fan, waiting nervously for us to reveal more squishy products. If you’re already at that stage, be sure to follow us on Instagram, Facebook, and Twitter to get the latest news on which squishies we’re stocking next!
