If your kids are wild over rare Squishmallows like mine are, you gotta grab them Halloween Squishmallows! With the Halloween candy shortage upon us, this is the perfect excuse to swap out some candy and treat them to cuddly Squishmallows instead. But you have to act quickly: The Halloween Squishmallows vanish quicker than you can say BOO!
Halloween Squishmallows 2022 (commonly misspelled as “Halloween Squishmellows 2022”) are one of the rarest subcategories in the Squishmallow world. They have adorable ones, like pumpkin Squishmallows, ghost Squishmallows, spiders, a grim reaper Squishmallow, and even Sanderson Sister Squishmallows. In fact, in terms of the history of Halloween squishes, Jack the Black Cat Squishmallow is the rarest Squishmallow ever created — with only 500 in circulation. Another extremely rare find is the Otto Squishmallow, a grim reaper.
Although the Halloween Squishmallows have already come and gone, we have all the best tips on how to find them and the top 30 to look for.

Where Can You Find Halloween Squishmallows?
If you’re wondering where to find Halloween Squishmallows, we have the best leads on where you can find them online and in stores. When shopping in big-box stores like Walmart and Target, be sure to look in the Halloween section and the toy section. Every store is different as to where they stock them. You can check out the full list of Squishmallow retailers.
My top tip for shopping for any rare or trending Squishmallow online without overpaying is to verify that the retailer is the same as the site you’re shopping on. For example, if you’re shopping on Amazon.com, be sure it says “Sold and shipped by Amazon.” With holiday releases, third-party sellers are more prominent than when you’re shopping for regular Squishmallows.
Where to buy Halloween Squishmallows:
- Cracker Barrel
- Five Below
- Learning Express
- Meijer — in-store only
- HomeGoods — in-store only

When Does Halloween Squishmallows Come Out?
Across all of the retailers, Halloween Squishmallows will start to pop up as early as the end of July through October. In 2022, they hit the shelves at Walgreens on Aug. 10, and Aldi had them on Oct. 14.
We’ve spotted Halloween and fall-themed Squishmallows in Aldi, Walgreens, Walmart, Meijer, and HomeGoods. Aldi also released a batch of 8″ Halloween Squishmallows in the Oct. 12 sales ad for $4.99. This included Calio the Cat, Delie the Candy Corn, Staley the Pumpkin, Benti the Vampire, and Ferlize the Ghost Squishmallow. My rule of thumb is that any time I’m out shopping, I look for them. You never know what you’ll find.
What Kind of Halloween Squishmallows Are There?
Certain Squishmallows come back year after year, like the whole Nightmare Before Christmas crew. Squishmallows for Halloween come in clips as small as 4.5 inches and all the way up to 24 inches. Clips are priced as low as $4.99. I love finding the clips because then I can buy more. Keep your eyes out for store-exclusive rare Squishmallows, too.
