- Pokemon Squishmallows, including the new Winking Pikachu and Piplup, are expected to be the most sought-after toy this holiday season.
- The larger 20-inch Squishmallows are priced at $49.99 each and are currently available on Amazon, but the Winking Pikachu version has sold out quickly.
- The Squishmallows, including Piplup, are difficult to find, so if you want one for the holidays, now is a good time to buy as more stock may be added before December 25th.
Pokemon Squishmallows are likely going to be the most in-demand toy this holiday season, especially with two entirely new ones still to come, hopefully before the end of the year. Until Clefairy and Teddiursa enter the fray, there are six other Pokemon Squishmallows to try and track down, each of them available in various sizes. In fact, the newest additions – Winking Pikachu and Piplup – now have 20-inch versions, the biggest size Pokemon Squishmallows come in, available on Amazon.
The larger Squishmallows are going to cost you a little more due to their size, priced at $49.99 each. The Winking Pikachu ‘mallow also seems to have sold out almost immediately. It is worth checking stock through the link below though, especially since the products are on Amazon. Amazon tends to add stock of in-demand products in waves which might mean more Winking Pikachus are available throughout the day and perhaps even later this week.
Piplup is in stock though, at least at the time of typing this, and you can secure one of your own through the link below. Piplup is currently the newest Pokemon to have received the Squishmallow treatment, becoming the sixth option added to the collection. The first wave included Pikachu, Togepi, Gengar, and Snorlax, and then Piplup and Winking Pikachu were added a little while later.
Piplup Squishmallow Plush
Joining the Squishmallow club is the adorable penguin Pokemon Piplup! The Sinnoh starter looks absolutely adorable as a Squishmallow, with its round body and shining blue eyes. This little guy will add an icy touch to your Squishmallow collection (though, of course, it’s just as warm and soft to cuddle).
All six remain hard to find regardless of size, so if you want or need one for the holidays, now may well be the time to act. More stock will be added between now and December 25, but there’s no telling which Squishmallows will be restocked and when. I’ve been waiting quite a while for the Gengar Squishmallow to be back in stock and I’ve had no luck as of yet. If you’ve been after a Piplup, I’d act now if you can.
Winking Pikachu Squishmallow Plush
Pikachu is its utterly charming self in this plush! It has a wide smile and is winking one eye, meaning it’s no doubt up to some mischief. Just like all other Squishmallows, it’s soft and cuddly, so you really can’t go wrong.
If you already have all six Pokemon Squishmallows or none of the ones released so far have caught your eye, as noted above, there are more coming. Clefairy and Teddiursa’s Squishmallows were shown off for the first time almost two months ago, but their release dates are yet to be revealed. If you want either of them as soon as they’re available, you’ll need to act very fast when they hit the Pokemon Center.
