My daughter collects squishies and we've had some good and bad experiences with our online purchases. first let me say, this is now my daughters favorite squishy. When itt arrived we prepared ourselves for a strong chemical smell, what we found was a great looking squishy and no harmful smell, win win for mom. The squishy had a good amount of squish to it, its not the slowest rising one she has but its still a good slow rise. The quality and look of the squishy is perfect, she loves it and mom is happy.
