The stuffed toys have taken Tik Tok by storm

While the trendsetting app TikTok is a one-stop shop for everything from dance routines, pasta recipes and the hottest make-up and skincare products, it’s also home to slightly more niche trends.

Take for example, Squishmallows – just one of many products populating the #TikTokMadeMeBuyIt feed. But what exactly are these toys taking the app by storm?

First launched in 2017 by toy company Kellytoy, the range of brightly coloured, cuddly stuffed animals have enjoyed a recent boom in popularity thanks to users sharing their vast collections on the app and limited-edition releases adding to the frenzy.

The toys have accumulated a loyal following with the likes of Kim Kardashian showing off her daughter North’s collection and Squishmallow “hunters” buying from resellers at a price five times their retail value. Coming in an eclectic array of colours and designs including Disney characters, animals and food, the toys range in size from 5cm to 50cm and you can purchase in packs of up to 24.

These are the toys of the moment – the Squishmallows hashtag currently has 2.8 billion views on TikTok and shortages have been reported across the US – increasing their resell value. But if you’re looking to tap into the craze in the UK in time for Easter, don’t fret as the viral toys are still available to buy at a host of retailers – including The Entertainer, Smyths Toys, Claires, Amazon and more.
