The Christmas squad is back, and these cuddly characters are as cute as ever. Christmas squishallows may be just a bunch of plush toys to some, but these super-soft, collectible stuffed toys can bring a lot of cheer to the little ones in the holidays.
For anyone new to the world of squishmallows, these plush toys for kids have been all the rage. But they are not new; they were introduced in 2017 by KellyToy Company. Squishmallows are assorted, round squishy stuffies that come in various sizes, colors, and characters. These huggable toys will make excellent Christmas gifts for the kiddos.
What are the Names of the Christmas Squishmallows?
The Christmas squishmallows squad goes by names like Carol, Nick, Clarice, Jordan, and Gina, to name a few. The following are some of the Christmas squad squishmallows available. Squishmallows sold before 2022 will have a silver tag with snowflakes, and the ones sold in 2022 will have green tags with snowflakes.
Where Are Squishmallows Available?
Squishmallows can be purchased at several department stores like Target and Walmart. Many can be found online on Amazon and other major retailers. You might be better off looking for them in stores, however. Many online retailers now include third-party vendors who tend to jack up the prices. It especially occurs on rare or limited edition collectible items like the Christmas holiday season squishmallows.
What Characters are the Christmas Squishmallows?
There are many different characters in the Squishmallow Christmas Collection, including the following:
Nick Santa Claus
What character represents Christmas more than good old Saint Nick! Santa Claus is a squishmallow that is a prominent member of the Christmas squad. The Christmas squishmallows range from 3.5 inches (clip-ons) to as large as 24 inches tall, considered the jumbo squishmallow size. You can get a Santa squishmallow up to 16 inches tall.
Mrs. Claus goes by the name Nicolette in the squishmallow world. Nicolette is available in the 12-inch size online on Amazon. With her perfectly coiffed bun and bright smile, the rotund Clauses match perfectly. In fact, they can be purchased as a pair on Amazon as well, but sizes may vary.
Bumble Abominable Snowman
The Abominable Snowman comes in 5-inch, 8-inch, 10-inch, and 12-inch sizes. We’re unsure how the Abominable one beat out a Frosty the Snowman squishmallow this year. However, his scaryish, sharp tooth smile still manages to make him cute and cuddly.
Rudolph Red-Nosed Reindeer
Yes, the leader of Santa’s sleigh is a squad member. Rudolph is available in 5 inches, 8 inches, and 16 inches. Other reindeer buddies available include Clarice and Darla.
Hermey the Christmas Elf
Hermey the elf comes in 8-inch and 12-inch sizes. You can buy Herney along with some other elf friends like Elliot, Emmy, Bartie, Emmeline, Ezrah, Emani, and Fred. Jangle and Orazlo are also from the 2022 Christmas squad, and Jangle winks!

Luna, the penguin, can be found in 4.5 inches and 8 inches, wearing pajamas and a Santa hat. You can also find Luna wearing a scarf and earmuffs introduced before this year.
Sivi and Marshina Hot Cocoa

The ornaments usually come in a box with eight or fewer squishmallows and are 4 inches tall.
Are Christmas Squishmallows Rare?
Christmas squishmallows are usually released for sale in September. They can quickly sell out; unfortunately, many are snapped up by people who resell them on the market for much higher prices. Most of the squishmallows in the Christmas squad are considered to be rare. Gingerbread squishmallows, reindeer squishmallows, Christmas tree squishmallows, hot cocoa squishmallows, and snowman squishmallows are rare.
