What It Is
What It Is
The Squaredy Cats images that are popular on social network sites have come to life as stuffed characters from Gund. Each Squaredy Cat has its own theme and plays off the phrase "scaredy cat", but because these cats are square-shaped, they're called Squaredy Cats. These are designed to empower kids and show what they're "not squared" (as opposed to "not scared") to do. For example, Tiger Lily is "not squared" to go wild. There are eight different cats to collect: Tiger Lily, Shimmer, Gigi, Honey, Candie, Giggles, Cheeri, and Midnight.
Why It’s Fun
This is a fun, new stuffed animal collectible that encourages kids to express themselves and reflect their individual personalities. Each Squaredy Cat is different so kids can pick the one that they most relate to or collect them all.
Who It’s For
Squaredy Cats are for ages 1 and up, but that's for safety reasons, and the content is not something infants can relate to, though they may enjoy the colorful characters. These will mainly appeal to preschoolers who are beginning to be socialized among a peer group.
What to Be Aware of
Squaredy Cats are available at Toys "R" Us and select toy and gift stores.
