The fun of squishy buns, or squishies

japan-crate japancrate-crate-contents japancrate-culture

Did you get a soft keychain with a funny face in your May Japan Crate?

FullSizeRender 2  

Welcome to the squishy phenomenon! These little guys originated in Japan over 30 years ago, but only became popular in the US within the last few years.


Squishies come in all kinds of shapes and varieties! Most of them can be categorized as either animals, bread, licensed characters, or rare.


Rare squishies are sometimes valued at over $100!


The squishies included in May’s Japan Crate belong to the bread category and are modeled (and scented) after a type of Japanese soft bread called “pan.” To give you an idea, this bread is fluffier and lighter than the bread you can find here in the US.

Each individual squishy is a little different. Some are more soft and some are more squishy. Compare with a friend to see which of you received the slowest riser!


Guaranteed, now that you have one squishy, you’ll want more!


Here are some kawaii squishies we love!
