A Squishy is a popular stress relief toy. Squishes are also known as Kawaii Squishes. Kawaii means cute in Japanese. They can help relieve stress and anxiety. People using them often feel a sense of calm when they squeeze and shape them. Squishes are sometimes infused with scents that match the look of them, so a strawberry cake squishy gives off the smell of strawberry. The scent can increase the relaxation effect.
Squishies are made from a special rubberized foam that is easily squeezed and then slowly goes back to the original shape. Squishes come in a variety of styles that often come from pop culture, anime, animals, and foods.
