Reader-submitted: Squishies

Dear TLS, I’m reaching out to see if anyone else has been experiencing the same issue as me and some friends have.

As many know, the latest craze is the squishies – a memory-foam type of squishie which comes in all shapes and sizes.

We purchased some of them, and the next day my son was complaining about his eye, and his eye turned pink.

A friend of mine told me she was taking her baby to the doctor for a pink eye, and it turns out she was also playing with the item. It seems there may be a chemical in there causing the reaction.

If anyone else had this experience, please let us know.

  1. Yes! Two days ago my daughter received a squishy from a neighbor. About an hour later she showed me that her was pink. I did not make the association until now- reading this article. Thank you for posting!

  2. Please post the company and where you bought them. There are many different knock off companies being sold all over lakewood. I am curious if all of them are causing the same reaction or just specific ones.
