But, what about when families are not at home or kids go back to school? There are some occasions when the perfect clip-on friends are able to generate smiles even when on-the-go. These little collectible characters can tag along on backpacks, handbags, bike baskets, belt loops and more!
There are toys that ignite laughter, spark ideas or encourage interactive play. While they certainly could fit into all these categories, MushMeez are toys that work particularly well to console a child when scared, stressed, overwhelmed, anxious, or overly tired. By hugging a plush toy, children can focus their attention on their squishy friends who are always there to support them.
Sold in an assortment pack, these brightly colored squishable friends are sure to be a hit with anyone who loves both glitter and stuffed animals! A wide variety of rainbow-colored animals are available to choose from or kids can collect them all. With the ideal balance of a little shiny and a lot cute, the MushMeez are huggable squeeze-worthy take-along toys for every activity.
Not enough pizazz and glitter? The assortment pack of the Shimeez collection may be exactly the right amount. Each plush toy comes with loads of flippable two-sided sequins. Kids will have a blast writing their names and drawing with their fingers while still being able to squeeze the toy for comfort. Imagine all the possibilities! Now, kids don't have to choose between an activity and a stuffed animal to bring when out of the house. They can have both in the same clip-on sized friend who is always ready for an adventure! What a great toy to take to doctor's offices, school, running errands, or on both local and long-distance trips.
Looking for more animation? The Fingerlings are beloved for their ability to simulate a live pet! Although small enough to clip onto a backpack, this version of these popular friends are more than tagalongs. They close their eyes to sleep and open them again when it is time to play just like a real pet! Their long arms hold on for a nice calming hug. Poseable tails enable them to swing from lots of interesting places. Place them on end caps or hang them on shelves near the register to watch the wide-eyed excitement take place as children become entranced by these amazing toys. Four colors make it easy to play in a group setting. Be sure to keep all four colors in stock because it’s hard to buy one without coming back for more!
