Squishies are all the rage!
These foam shapes are great for relieving stress and anxiety, helping people retain focus, and are perfect for sensory play. Kids tweens, teen and,  adults are collecting these adorable little pieces of “squishable” foam.

Squishies have quickly replaced fidget spinners as attention management aid. At the end of 2017, there were over two million posts on YouTube and Instagram with the hashtag #squishy. In fact, Newsday.com has listed Squishies as one of the top toys for 2018.

So what are Squishies?
Squishies started out as pre-formed and finished pieces of slow rising foam in a wide variety of sizes shapes and such as duck, cows, ice cream cones, hamburgers, pandas… and the ridiculously popular “Poop” emoji.

The latest trend in Squishies is to make your own. For those who want one of a kind Squishies or enjoy the process of making your own, Fairfield has come out with Poly-fil® Squishy Foam.

Poly-fil® Squishy Foam is perfect for making DIY Squishies. Each 2” x 5” x 4.75” pieces of slow rising memory foam can make one large Squishie or multiple mini Squishies.

    This looks like FUN! I want to know when and where I can purchase these blocks of slow rising foam…or sent samples to work with for producers for publication. I am an AFCI designer and multiple-time published author of how-to books and articles.

    If I buy other products is there a way to cover up the “holey-ness” of the foam? Maybe using a fabric paint or filler of some sort? I really want buy some to make my own squishies but, I really want them to be smooth!

    1. Robin Dann says:

      We also had great success in dying the foam and painting the foam, but the nature of foam is that it allows air in and out. so the air holes are necessary. We are aware that molded squishies that you purchase in a store have a smooth skin on them. This comes from the baking process. If you were cut one of these in half the texture would match that of our DIY squishy foam. You can cover the foam with spandex type of material and still enjoy the squishiness of the foam. See the examples of the hearts by Mark Montano in the project posting above.
