About the Designer Rachel K. I'm currently a college student working on a degree towards illustration. I currently freelance, and have a lot of fun doing so! I've had lots of crazy animals throughout my life and have loved every one of them. This contest gives me the urge to illustrate them all as squishables!
Giraffes. Amoebas. Some animals aren't easy to turn into spherical form - we always end up wondering where to stick all those appendages, and necks, and...insides? This is not a problem we faced with the Chinchilla! A Chinchilla is basically an adorably fluffy ball with eyes. If you covered a donut hole in silver fur, this is what it would look like! If you placed one on an incline, it would roll. Two of them could easily be confused with earmuffs. For the Trekkers among you, they're Tribbles!
And yes, yes, they're technically rodents from the Andes with ultra soft fur, but we just can't see past the sweet little face and the fact that they look like furry bowling balls with legs stickin' out. Oh the cute, it is just beyond words. Except for words like, "Wow that Chinchilla is so round!"
The Chinchilla is a Limited Edition design with hand-numbered tags from 1 to 2,000. Once they're gone...they're gone!
7 squishy inches of made to be round! All new polyester fiber, ages 3 and up only!
My First Squishable! By: Rainbowsquish (Winnipeg, MB) 5-3-2015
I just got my first Squishable (the Chinchilla) and I love it so much. I love chinchillas so I really wanted this one and its number is 975 (of 2000 - limited edition). Its so soft, cute, and fluffy. I didn't know what to name him until I saw him. His name is Puff after his puffiness. I would totally recommend this chinchilla before its gone
Fi! By: Moya (Seattle, WA) 12-27-2014
My mom got this little guy for me for Christmas. He's even cuter than in the picture! Fi (named after the sound I made when I pulled him out of the box) is super soft and cuddly, and he's also cool with being used as a place to rest my head, although he's not quite big enough to substitute for a pillow, but at 7 inches I wasn't really expecting him to be. I have a hard time letting go of him to go do other things! Definitely worth the wait!
Companion to my Rescue Chin! By: Jessica (Bellingham, WA) 9-19-2014
My little rescue chinchilla loves having this guy in his cage. This is more of his pal-around buddy- it's apparently the kangaroo mouse Squishable that holds his desire! Really, though, this is an adorable Squishable and I'm so happy I got it! It looks great in my chinchilla's play area, and is one of the most adorable Squishables I've ever seen. :)

I love chinchillas they are so cute and fuzzy so when I was looking at the arctic fox and I saw it I got it next on the list arctic fox minty
P.S. I named the chinchilla ash
Perfect By: Olga (Mountlake Terrace, WASHINGTON) 6-24-2014
Our kindergarten boy is obsessed with mice, the cuter the better. He spotted this one in a bookstore here in Seattle and would not be deterred. He named it "Squish," it goes everywhere, and if you ever make it in a giant size (ahem) please let us know. :-) It's ridiculously sweet, and also functions as a ball and sister-bopping implement.
