Where to Buy Squinkies Surprize Toys?
So, you and every other parent of a 4-10 year old is looking for the hottest new toy this Christmas season - the Squinkies Surprise toys. These are one of the most adorable toy concepts I have seen in a while - although the Zoobles are quite cute too.
Squinkies squishies have only been on the market less than a year, but their heavy advertising campaign is just now kicking in, and will only drive the Squinkies buying frenzy higher. As the Holiday season gets closer, I am sure there will be more and more 'Squinkies Squinkies Squinkies' commercials to be delivered.
We have yet to see if the Squinkies manufacturer - Blip Toys - has enough supply to fill this potential demand.
Squinkies have not yet been fully stocked at brick and mortar retailers like Walmart & Target. If the Zhu Zhu Pets of last year are to be used as an example, these retailers may not be able to hold stock once they do start receiving regular shipments.
What are Squinkies anyway?
Squinkies are little characters - people, babies, and animals. These little characters come packaged in little plastic gumball shells. These little gumballs are designed to go into a Squinkie Surprise Gumball machine.
Right now the collection has 189 figures that can be purchased separately and in playsets & gift packs.
A Toy with a Concept!
Think these little guys were designed just to go on pencil tops? Nope! These toys, manufactured by Blip Toys, were designed with a concept in mind. It goes like this. You buy one of the Squinkies Gumball Machines, set it on your counter, and use each little gumball surprize as a reward for your child when they exhibit good behaviors. For instance, you could use these when potty training, as chore rewards, or a thank you for good sibling behavior.
Squishy Squooshy Squashy Fun!
- Babies - There are 18 babies in the Squinkies collection.
- Friends - There are 36 friends (people characters) in the Squinkies collection.

Rare Squinkies are a true surprise! You may find one of 20 rare squinkies inside of the bubble packs. You will know when you find one because they will sparkle! These rare squinkies are a glittery solid color - blue, pink, green, purple, and orange.
