Squigz are fun little suckers!
Apply pressure to two Squigz. Air rushes out and the fun rushes in!
Connecting to each other and to any solid, non-porous surface - Squigz are a species all their own. They flex. They stick. They suck people into creativity.
Once they take hold, it takes some pull to separate them. When Squigz POP! in protest - you’ll have to admit… your hands and ears are shamelessly delighted!
They are flexible fellows and committed joiners. Squigz and fellow Squigz have one chief enterprise - creating things. Willingly, they assemble to become rockets, vehicles, a cushion for the cat, jewelry… they thrill in uniting as a ginormous octopus or squid.
Squigz are scientific sorts - always up for playful experimentation and defying gravity - sticking to bathtubs, windows, school lockers, tabletops, and office desktops. (And they are mannerly guests too - never leaving a trace of their presence.)
Playful curiosity. It's a whole new gig - thanks to Squigz.

As one of the top online toy retailers, we have access to unprecendented quantities of product review data. One of the key ways that we use this data is by associating our products to the specific ages and genders of the kids who are playing with them. Whereas most retailers must rely upon manufacturer suggested ages (i.e. 3+), we take actual customer usage and share it with you here so that you can choose the perfect toy or game.
But how does this help me? You can use these graphs as a general measure of it's appropriateness for a given age and gender. While this information is generally accurate, it should not be used as an absolute answer. For instance, many dinosaur toys are purchased for boys, however, that doesn't mean that it's inappropriate for a girl who happens to like dinosaurs.
NOTE: The orange color in the charts above indicate ages that are LESS than the manufacturer suggested age. Please purchase at your discretion if your child is younger than 3 years of age.
Identified Special Needs Challenges: Aspergers,
Sensory Integration Disorder
"He enjoyed these because it was something that he could play with for a LONG period of time and could keep changing the way he played. He could stick them to different surfaces, sort them by color or shape, build with them, etc. Plus he could watch us build with them to see other ways to use them. It was great for the senses because of the material they are made from and the colors, the popping sounds when pulled apart. They weren't a loud toy with minimal ways to play with them like so many others. Once he figure out the popping noise from pulling them apart, he did that for awhile. "
Identified Special Needs Challenges: ADD/ADHD,
"Overall, the product is great. My child psychotherapy clients love playing with Squigs. One difference I would suggest would be the opening and closing of the container that the Squigs are stored in. It could be a bit challenging for small children to open with their little fingers. The container itself is also a little challenging to repack with the Squigs after dumping them all out."
Identified Special Needs Challenges: Developmental Delay,
"Great for communication when the child needed help the first few times to push them together. We each held one and counted to 3 before we pulled them apart. I asked child for a certain colors."
Identified Special Needs Challenges: Apraxia,
Sensory Integration Disorder,
Speech & Language Delay
"Uses can include: sorting by color, eliciting a verbal response to the color chosen, or asked to be chosen, creating patterns. Also, very helpful for strengthening of fine motor skills, following directions for placement of the component part. "
Identified Special Needs Challenges: Autism,
Speech & Language Delay
"Simple but fantastic! Used with children in Early Childhood Special Education program. Great for promoting hand strength, working on early language and speech sounds, maintaining attention and more. Love this toy!"
Keeps them busy for a while
Posted 1/21/2015 by Humberto
I gave this toy to my now 3 year old son for his birthday. At first he did not know what to do with it. Once I started playing with him, he started creating shapes. This keeps him and my five year old daughter busy for a while. They both create shapes and characters and enjoy playing together.
Gave to my 6 Y.O. Grandson yesterday evening and, although, there were other gifts, he played with this one immediately. It's infectious - his Grandfather couldn't wait to play with it also. Makes children creative!
