Farshore has acquired publishing rights to the official collector’s guide for the award-winning plush property, Squishmallows. Emma Cairns-Smith, Global Licensing Acquisition Director for Brands and Licensing at Farshore, signed a worldwide rights deal with Jazwares along with its Kellytoy subsidiary for the Squishmallows Official Collector’s Guide.
Since Squishmallows launched in 2017, over 100 million Squishmallows plush products have been sold globally. The phenomenon has spread to online spaces, with the brand achieving 6.1 billion impressions online and “Squish Hunting” – people posting videos and photos dedicated to collecting the 1,000+ ultra-collectable Squishmallows – becoming hugely popular.
Squishmallows Official Collector’s Guide is designed to be the perfect gift for all plush-loving superfans and the official guide to the world of Squishmallows. Scheduled to launch in July 2022, it will feature tips for finding rare and collectible Squishmallows, all the information you could want about Squishmallows Squad collections, a Squishmallows Super Fan quiz and more.
Emma Cairns-Smith, representing Brands and Licensing at Farshore, says: “Squishmallows is a gigantic toy brand with an army of TikTok fans and influencers behind it. We are so excited to create publishing which engages with those fans across the globe.”
Sam Ferguson, Vice President, Global Licensing, Jazwares, adds: “Collaborating with Farshore brings new opportunities for fans to explore the ever-growing world of Squishmallows with fun tips and tricks that bring a new level of fun to the hunt.”
Squishmallows Official Collector’s Guide is scheduled to publish on 7 July 2022, for fans aged 9-18+
