Squishmallows – Baby & Spring line Review

It’s time for our second Squishmallow Squish-strazaganza!

In this video, we revisit the Squishmallows by Kelley Toys, and take a look at two of their more recent lines, one for babies with a rattle inside, and the other with new Spring colors and animals! Is this the softest and cuddliest line of plush toys ever made? Quite possibly, and if you are already a member of the #SquishmallowSquad you already know how great these are. If you don’t, it’s time to make you a believer!

Sorry for being late with the Spring animals, that was our fault for a number of reasons that may be explained at a later date, along with some other notes.

If you liked these, why not get yourself a Squishmallow Alpaca? – https://amzn.to/2LxAEt2

Or how about an Owl (one of my favorites) – https://amzn.to/2Lfidu2

Purrhaps a Squishmallow kitty is more your style – https://amzn.to/2O4F7BY

Or one of my new favorites from the baby line, Emma the Elephant – https://amzn.to/2mBSJIg
