Well to make it simple for us "old" folks that were born in the "19's" as my kids say, Squinkies are a small squishy figure that comes inside a clear plastic bubble. They have a huge variety of Squinkies and they come in all types from cats and dogs to babies and ponies. A very unique feature that the Squinkies bring to the table is that they have produced them in series, so you can keep you kids play set fresh and current with the latest instalment of Squinkies.

So join me as we take a look at the different types of Squinkies that are out there, so you can not only speak their "language", but get them the present that they truly want
