Trendy Squishmallows toys are on Black Friday sale — save up to 50% on one of 2023's hottest gifts

They're soft, they're squishy and they're absolutely adorable. Squishmallows aren't just cute though, they're all the rage with kids, who you not can be notoriously difficult to shop for. These cuddly plush toys come in so many adorable shapes from fruits to critters, and they even made it onto Google's Holiday 100 list of the top trending products this year, which said that over the past 12 months, Squishmallows were searched for by people in every state. So, now that you know exactly what to get every child (even adults like them!) on your list, all that's left to do is save. Like the rest of this year's incredible Black Friday deals, Squishmallows are on sale now and we have a list of our favorites below. Now hurry up and get your cuddle on!

Squishmallows are appropriate for ages 3 and up — note that there's no cutoff for us kids at heart. Fifi has a fiery personality and was one of the first Squishmallows to be introduced.

$20 at Amazon

Why is it a good Black Friday deal?

While prices vary between the different characters (and some even come in multiple sizes), you'll find a large assortment on sale for $20 and under. Not too shabby for a trending toy right before the holidays. The popular Fifi the Coral Fox pictured above is an impressive 50% off, and many are down to their lowest prices since Prime Day — or ever!

Why do I need this?

Ok, you might not need this (though who's to say — they're super cute and cuddly!), but your child, grandchild, niece or nephew will certainly be over the moon when they receive their plushie this holiday season. Even Mom will love cuddling one. What sets Squishmallows apart from other stuffed animals is their supreme softness, which makes them the perfect nap-time companions. They could almost double as pillows, and each one comes with a name and personality trait for some extra fun.

There are also a staggering number of characters to choose from, whether the child you're shopping for loves dogs, dinos or one of our favorites, Antoine the Peanut Butter!

What reviewers say

"Perfect!" exclaimed an excited shopper. "My niece absolutely loved it! It’s huge [and] squishy!"

"Squishmallows are always a good idea!" raved another gift-giver. "Who wouldn’t love to snuggle with these soft and squishy pillows? Had one shipped to my granddaughter as a surprise get-well gift and she loved it."

"We love this plushie," wrote a final fan. "It’s very soft, squishy and great for kids with sensory needs. The only thing I wanted to note is the description says this is red, but it is actually pink (more similar to the picture than the description). This wasn’t a problem for us because we prefer pink, but I wanted to note it in case that’s not the color you’re looking for." (This was regarding our good friend Fifi, FYI.)

Aside from their fab price (over 40% off!), we love the real-time power readout on the front of the case of these earbuds, making it so much easier than pulling out your phone and swiping to find out how much charge is left. The top number shows how much juice is in the case, while the two smaller indicators show readings for each bud. Pretty smart!

They also have multiple sound modes to pick from. Nearly 8,000 five-star fans can't be wrong, right?

The a.m. "grind" doesn't have to be taken so literally, as in, having to grind your own coffee beans. Mornings are hectic enough as it is! With this compact Keurig, you'll be able to enjoy a freshly brewed cup of joe, no filters or coffee grinders required. Simply fill the reservoir with water, pop in the K-Cup of your choice, select the size of your cup and — presto — java will appear in your mug in under a minute. True to its name, this slim model also won't take up much counter space. We've yet to see this model dip below $50, and if you're someone who enjoys a hot bev (or two) on a daily basis, it'll pay for itself with all the time it'll save you. We recommend snagging it while it's 50% off!

Don't be surprised if you start using this more than your actual oven!

This No. 1 bestselling, TikTok-famous compact carpet cleaner packs a punch, especially considering it weighs less than 10 pounds! Its powerful suction can be used to remove stains not just from rugs, but furniture and even car upholstery, too. Plus, it comes with a self-cleaning hose tool and a bottle of Bissell's Spot & Stain with Febreeze. We haven't seen this viral cleaner priced much lower than it currently is in years (it was only a few bucks cheaper back in July for Prime Day) — and when you consider how much money it'll save you in professional cleaning bills (and replacement furniture), it'll pay for itself in just a few uses.

At just about half a pound, this topseller is like an ultra-lightweight extension of your arm — and what it lacks in heft, it certainly makes up for in dexterity.

The durable metal rod extends as far as 32 inches for easy reaching and folds down for space-saving storage when not in use.

With its 6-quart capacity, this gorgeous air fryer can hold enough food for five to seven people, yet its small footprint won't take up too much space on your counter. Its patent-pending TurboCrisp technology helps ensure quick, even cooking with that crunch factor we all crave (though you'll be able to cook with as much as 75% less fat than deep-frying). The user-friendly touchscreen lights up while in use and features time and temperature settings (from 90-400 degrees Fahrenheit), as well as four functions: Air Fry, Roast, Reheat and Dehydrate, the latter of which is a cool feature that isn't always included with air fryers.

If you get stressed when you're out and about and notice your phone's battery is at 13%, this portable charger duo is a must.
