Squinkies are small, cute and collectable toys. They are soft and squishable and come in many different varieties. The main way to get Squinkies are in what’s known as Bubble Packs. Each Squinkies Bubble Pack comes with 16 different Squinkies. Twelve of these are known, while four of them are surprises. This adds to both the collectability, as well as the fun factor. They’re called Bubble Packs because each of the Squinkies comes in its own bubble, much like what you would get out of a toy vending machine.
You can get Squinkies in the previously mentioned packs, as well as accessories and play sets. For example, there is the Squinkies Cupcake Surprise Bakeshop. It’s in the shape of a big, pretty cupcake, and has a play bakery inside. It comes with nine Squinkies related to the Bakeshop theme, can be opened up to play, and dispenses the Squinkies in bubbles, just like the machines you can find at stores. The Squinkies Cupcake Surprise Bakeshop can hold up to 15 bubbles at a time.
Squinkies are usually cute little animals or people, though there are other ones available. There are hundreds to collect. You can also get Squinkies as pencil toppers, bracelets, rings and other things. Whatever Squinkies you get for the special person on your gift list, they are sure to enjoy them for a long time to come.
