In recent years, stuffed animals have transformed from simple childhood companions to sought-after collectibles for people of all ages.

Among these squishy sensations, one brand of plushies stands out from the herd: Squishmallows!

These velvety super-soft, squeezable critters come in all shapes and sizes, from cuddly cats and puppies to whimsical unicorns and dragons.

And in today's post, we're "moo-ving" our spotlight to the undisputed fan favorite: the Cow Squishmallow.

A Squishy Sensation: The Birth of Squishmallows

Squishmallows first bounced into the toy scene back on 03/01/2017, and their immediate "plush" was undeniable.

Created by Kellytoy, a company known for crafting high-quality and innovative toys, it's no surprise that Squishmallows quickly became a household name.

The secret sauce?

Squishmallow plush toys are made from an ultra-soft and huggable material known as "marshmallow-like texture polyester," making them irresistibly snuggle-worthy.

Kellytoy's visionary designer is the genius behind the brand's enchanting characters. Aimed to create a line of toys that offered comfort and companionship to kids and adults alike, and honestly, Squishmallows have surely achieved that aim.

The Choices

The Squishmallow collection of plushies comes in a variety of sizes and styles of your favorite animal. From smaller sizes like a 3.5-inch clip-on to 24 inches - the perfect size for an adorable Squishmallow plush pillow for your head!

Udderly Adorable: The Cow Squishmallow's Journey to Stardom

Now, let's graze through the pastures of time to uncover the origins of the much-loved Cow Squishmallow.

Kellytoy's designers not only created cow Squishmallows as lovable characters of collectible cuteness, but they also took inspiration from childhood memories of visiting local farms and verdant meadows to create these endearing and friendly bovine companions.

Ronnie Cow Squishmallow Styles

Over the years, the Cow Squishmallow herd has grown, with new members sporting different colors, patterns, exclusive Squishmallows, and even Squishmallows wearing limited-edition outfits.

From the classic black-and-white spotted cow Squishmallow to the whimsical pink cow Squishmallow, the cow family never ceases to amaze and delight collectors.

And now, without further ado, let's unveil the moo-st beloved Cow Squishmallow that's captured hearts around the globe: drum roll please...

Well... actually, we can't - whump, whump.

We searched in different forums, and articles, and looked for sales figures too, and there doesn't seem to be just one clear Squishmallow cow winner - that we found. But it was easy to find conflicting Squishmallow Cow popularity opinions and articles - of which, this, is now another.

We believe that the most popular Squishmallow cows are the ones you fall in love with. The ones you can't part with, the ones that make you feel love and affection, feel safe, and give you comfort - those are the most popular Squishmallows because it's personal - to you.

Depends on who you ask because there's more than just one star in the herd!

Do we think there is a favorite moo-cow among popular Squishmallows?

Oh, You betcha!

Though there are many Cow Squishmallows to choose from, we're introducing 14 of them below, if you're not already acquainted with them.

And, of course, of the cow Squishmallows listed below, our opinion is that Connor is the most popular cow Squishmallow.


Must-Have Cute Cuddle Best Friend

The most popular Squishmallows have, well... all Squishmallows have their own unique name and personality.

Kids ages 3 to 103 can pick their favorites based on personality matches and love for specific animals - like cows!

But we're talking about Cows here, so I digress...

If your adorable 3-year-old loves cute cows and Easter for example, then you will find that Cow Squishmallows are a good choice. And Connor is a Cow Squishmallow that is wearing an Easter Egg costume! That would be a must-have, right?

Connor Cow Squishmallow Styles

For example, do you know someone who maybe broke a leg playing basketball? There's a basketball-loving Bubba Cow Squishmallow for that.

Do you know someone who needs comfort while they're going through treatment? Perhaps they loved beanie babies in the past (but they're too small to provide comfort) - well, there's a cow Squishmallow for that too - Candess is a cow that loves to help others with healing.

Finally, are you looking for DIY Squishmallows? There's the cutest cuddling cow for that too - Ronnie - the handiest cow on the farm!

All Squishmallows can bring comfort...

...especially to a kid or a person who is aged or ailing, or anyone who needs a little cuddling.

The Collection Dreams are Made of

It was difficult to catch our kids' attention to pinpoint which Cow Squishmallow is their favorite.

After they all said that all of them were their favorites - gee, thanks kids, you're a helpful bunch πŸ™„ our youngest had a clear decision - it was the cow squishy that matched her birthday but then quickly changed her mind as soon as her brother mentioned that the cow was a boy. After a small tantrum ran its course, we explained to all the kids that it didn't matter - that she could choose a boy cow if that's what made him popular with her.

Sure enough, that's when one of our boys mentioned he likes Caedyn best because she likes scary movies - just like he does.
