My kids love squishies, and my daughter was thrilled when our Elf on the Shelf brought her a Squishy Advent Calendar this year. Each day on the calendar is numbered, so it was fun for her to wake up every morning and see what squishy toy would be behind the door.
We did have a day where there was nothing behind the door, so I sent an e-mail to Purple Ladybug Novelty, who suggested that I open it up, pull out the tray, and check if the squishies had shifted in transport. Sure enough, there was one that had made its way into the wrong place. They have great customer service and saved the day!
My daughter was so excited for December 1st, and every day was a treat, opening up the doors to see what squishy was inside. There was a good variety in types (with no duplicates). There are 24 in total, and the last day had a big Santa squishy.
My daughter was also excited to find a pink hippo, just like on the front of the advent calendar. I loved her excitement, and that she was trying to guess what would be in the next day.
There were also some Christmas themed squishies, like a snowman and Santa. It is nice that there are some holiday themed squishies, but not all.
Note that the squishies are all flat on at least one side (assumably so that they could fit well into the calendar). The back or bottom doesn’t always have a design or paint, like you might picture a big squishy. I don’t have any issue with these being flat on one side, and it actually made it nice for my daughter to line up all her squishies to display.
My daughter liked all her squishies, so this calendar was a win! There were a couple of different designs for the 2018 calendar, so hopefully next year she will get to try a different squishy calendar.
