What It Is

What It Is

Squirmles are chenille worm-like creatures that you can make crawl over your hands and do all kinds of tricks. Each Squirmle comes with instructions on how to do different tricks. The "magic" is from a pre-attached invisible leash that gives the illusion that the Squirmle is moving on its own, when really you're controlling the leash. Squirmles come in six different colors and include a re-sealable capsule that kids can use as a storage case.

Why It’s Fun

Parents and grandparents may remember these classic toys from the 1970s, but now Squirmles are being introduced to a new generation of kids. There is a bit of a learning curve involved, so it will take some practice to be able to make the Squirmles do more advanced tricks.

Who It’s For

Squirmles are for ages 3 and up, but it's really more for older kids who will have the dexterity necessary to do tricks with the Squirmles.

What to Be Aware of

There is a bit of a learning curve to get this working, but the directions are pretty clear. It does take practice, so older kids are going to have a little more facility with this than younger kids.
