Short Bio 

Simply squishing Opal the Octopus Squishmallow is enough to send cheerful rainbow colors to your heart! 

Although this girly girl doesn’t look it, she’s quite the tomboy, what with growing up with four brothers and all. Her four brothers love her so much that they gave her a pink sparkly dirt bike for her birthday last year!

She especially loves riding out after rainy afternoons so she can splash around in the really big puddles.

Veronica is a tomato-red octopus from the Sealife Squad. You can always find her nose buried in a book somewhere, munching on pretzels.

Beula the Blue Octopus loves art and wants to be an art teacher someday. She has an affinity for DIY arts and crafts and can whip up incredible creations with everyday things, like macaroni and scrap string.

She wants to be able to tell the world how much art means to her through teaching. 



Abby the Octopus took her love for water to a new level — by applying as Head Lifeguard for a waterpark. There, she can combine her two passions: becoming of service to the Squishmallows community and enjoying all the cool water rides.

At closing time, she slides down her favorite The Sea Creature Funnel — but don’t tell anyone!

    Care Instructions

    According to the official Squishmallows website, gentle spot treatment is the best way to clean Opal. However, if you’re going to be riding your bike with her after a rainy afternoon, you know that won’t be enough for stubborn mud stains! 

    When washing this Squishmallow, we discovered that Opal could survive a round of machine washing. Do note to put her inside a roomy pillowcase, wash her alongside other beddings, and use a gentle and cool cycle, so she doesn’t get damaged. 

    Once done, you can tumble dry her on low and gentle (not hot) or air dry her, depending on your preferred method. You can then fluff her up to her original shape with your fingers once she’s nice and dry.
