About the Designer Maybel K. Hi, I've been drawing since I can remember. But I've only started recently drawing seriously the last 8 or so years. I mostly do digital art, but sometimes I also venture into the realm of traditional art, lol. I love animals, and plushies, so naturally I jumped at the opportunity of designing a Squishable.
Who let the Kraken out? Turns out it was an 18th-century Danish dude named Erik Pontoppidan! Though there had been various accounts of fearsome, tentacled sea creatures dating back to Viking times, Pontoppidan's light beach-read The Natural History of Norway described several Kraken "encounters" in detail and popularized the Kraken as a massive, powerful beast prowling the northerly seas.
Historians, not known for their maritime derring-do, know more about Pontoppidan than Krakens. Research shows that he never asked any Kraken for permission to blow up their spot like that! Not cool, man! Krakens will reveal themselves when they're ready! For example, this purple monster took a few hundred years to come around to the idea of trading in the briny deep for the comfy chair!
Don't let Pontoppidan the print paparazzi turn you off to humans, Kraken! We're cuddly, warm and totally capable of respecting your privacy! 15 squishy inches of modest monster. All new polyester fiber, ages 3 and up only!opensquish_kraken_15new

Karen the Kraken By: Ariel (Shrewsbury, PA) 5-18-2018
Karen is so beautiful and adorable! She's the softest Squishable out of my whole collection so far. When I saw the retiring sale going on, I knew I just had to get her. I'm happy to say that she makes another wonderful addition to my collection.
Kraken II 564/1000 By: Rachel Davis (Foley, Al) 2-18-2017
I just received my first squishable. I was a little sceptical when the box came today. I thought that it was going to be really small because of the size of the box it came in. To my surprise, it was the perfect size to cuddle with. I love my first squishable. My three year old will have the best time naming the little kraken. Will delf be ordering a new one.
Everything I had hoped it would be and more By: Kelsy Baker (Morrisonville, NY) 11-19-2016
I ordered this Squishable Kraken for my family-versery so I ordered both this one and the mini Kraken II for my daughter and they are everything I had wanted and more. It's bigger in person than I thought it would be and I'm so pleasantly surprised it's so soft and cuddly and the colors are so bright and wonderful.
