As much as I like to make my kids happy all the time, I’m afraid I can’t always be the fun mum. For quite some time my four little students have been begging me for ‘squishies’, a toy trend that has rapidly taken the entire school yard by storm. However ‘everyone has one’ is not a good enough reason to join in, and after reading some worrying reports on the nasty chemicals hiding in many squishies I decided to hold off (not a popular decision, believe me!)…
Just when my kids gave up all hope I stumbled upon these adorable Smooshy Mushy creations and they DO meet all the strict safety standards and testing guidelines! They are safe, soft, sweet, scented and squishy and of course totally cute. Happy girls, happy mama.
Each Smooshy Mushy Baby (RRP $24, Ages 6+) is dressed up like its favourite animal and comes with a squishy animal bestie to match. For added fun there is a teeny baby bottle included, as well as two small ball chains so you can attach your Smooshy Mushy Baby gifts to your handbag or backpack and take them on all your adventures.
Other gifts include a sticker featuring your new Smooshy Mushy Baby, a name tag you can fill out, a birth certificate and a collector’s poster, all beautifully packaged together in a larger-than-life baby bottle. You never know which Smooshy Mushy Baby you will get next, as the giant baby bottle gives nothing away from the outside. My girls just love the disappearing milk effect when you tip the bottle, it is like magic!
There are currently six Smooshy Mushy babies to collect: Binky Baby & Fitzy Frog, Fluffy Frou-Fou & Skunky Boo, Cuddly Cub & Bearymoore, Sweet Peep & Lil’ Lambie, Boo Boo Bunny & Cutesy Cottontail and Missy Mane & Sugarhooves.
