Squishy Pops are a fun collectible toy your kids will have you scouring the retail aisles for, especially if they love anything related to My Little Pony or Finding Dory.

Squishy Pop's are tiny, squishy themed figures with a suction cup base. There are My Little Pony Squishy Pops and Finding Dory Squishy Pops. These little Squishy Pops characters can be safely stuck, squished or attached onto a variety of surfaces, then quickly removed or "popped" off.


Squishy Pops can be bought individually in blind bags or mystery capsules. They can also be bought in a three-pack or a five-pack. Even in the packs, there are surprise characters.

Why would you just collect Squishy Pops?

The toys can be worn to personalize charm bracelets or used during play, with different playsets, like the Sweet Shop Display Set.

The Sweet Shop Display set includes a Pinkie Pie Squishy Pops ponies, and aside from being able to store ponies, charms and bracelet accessories, there is an elevator that brings the ponies from the bottom to the top before riding the corkscrew slide all the way back to the bottom.

At under $10, sets like the Sweet Shop Display have a lot of play value. They are a great storage solution for small toys and a practical gift to purchase as a small reward or for a friend's birthday.

Children love small, collectible toys. They love to buy and find all of the toys in a series. Squishy pops are not just collectible, but kids love fidgeting with these small toys in their hands. They might even hide them in their pocked during the day. Kids love securing squishy pops to the table, then pulling them off to here the "pop sound." Squishy Pops are not indestructible, though. For children who might be rough with toys, it is possible to pull off the suction up from the pony and before long their ponies might be headless. 

If your kids love ShopKins, The Trash Pack, The UGGLY's, Tsum Tsums, Num Noms, Puppy in my Pocket, Gift 'ems, Care Bears, Trolls, Paw Patrol and LEGO Minifigures, they will probably also enjoy Squishy Pops.
