Welcome, fellow mythical-creature enthusiasts and Squishmallow aficionados!
Today, we're taking a deep dive into the squishy, cuddly universe of super cute Cow Squishmallows, and I "udderly" promise to fill your day with fascinating facts and tales of joyful fluffiness.
A Squishy Start: How It All Began
Squishmallows emerged from the enchanted mind of their creator on March 1, 2017, filling the hearts (and hands) of millions with an irresistible blend of plushness, poly-fiber bliss, and marshmallow-like softness. These magical animals have their roots in Kellytoy, a toy manufacturing company, and they've taken the world by storm ever since their entrance into the market. Maybe not at first but definitely since COVID when they reached the limelight on Tiktok videos.
Their moo-mentous journey began with the introduction of eight delightful characters.
The first Squad included Cam the Cat, Wendy the Frog, Fifi the Fox, Hans the Hedgehog, Piper and Puff the Penguins, and Hoot and Holly the Owls released in different sizes.
The original Fab 8 soared into the hearts of both children and adults alike.
This fantastic squad grew rapidly, and soon more options started taking the form of everything from mythical unicorns to adorably realistic bears. The more creatures that entered the Squishmallow family, the bigger the obsession ballooned among collectors.
So, What Was the First Cow Squishmallow?
Here's the moo-ment we've all been waiting for!
It wasn't long before a certain Cow Squishmallow entered the scene, capturing the hearts and minds of animal lovers everywhere.

He became a sensation overnight, paving the way for the rise of Squishmallow fame.
But what was it that made Connor stand out from the rest?
Some might say it's his endearing expression, while others might attribute it to his calming presence. One thing is for certain: Connor's larger-than-life personality played a significant part in propelling the Squishmallow brand to stardom.
