Squishies are toys that do what they do – be squishy and fun to play with. They are easily squeezable and can be a great kids’ toy due to the fun factor and their design. In the same way, they can also act as stress balls due to the fact that you can squeeze them. They can be used for kids with autism, ADHD, ADD, anxiety, or depression, or extreme stress.
Because they can be portable for kids to carry around (even for adults), they act as a toy and a stress ball object at the same time which can help in anxiety and anger management, especially for kids who have these problems.
Squishy toys like these can also have unique scents that make them feel like the actual food, such as a squishy cake having a sweet smell much like an actual sugar cake, or a squishy strawberry smelling like strawberry, which can calm your child.
