The Art of Making Squishies

20Dec

Squishes, without doubt, are made from molds, most definitely not the dirty thing that grows on bread that it left out for long – squishy molds are more like metal or hard plastic shapes that are very much similar in shape to cookie cutters. The molds are used to produce a large amount of wshcollection squishes in similar situations but a rainbow of varying pattern, scents, and colors.

For instance, let’s place ours gives on Sanrio, the founding company of the lovely Hello Kitty. One of the very first squishes to be manufactured by Sanrio was in form of a doughnut with ears inspired by Hello Kitty – this is, without doubt, an adorable combination of squishes.

Just like everyone anticipated, the doughnut was massively successful with the kawaii enthusiast globally and Sanrio first set of the product featured rainbow sprinkles and chocolate icing was sold out just as it was released to the market.

Nonetheless, since there was a supply of the mold, it was easy for sanrio to have the cat-eared doughnut reproduced. The second batch of the squishes was in appealing shapes and they were just as squeezable and soft but now chocolate sprinkles and the strawberry icing was spotted.

Bother the strawberry doughnut and the chocolate doughnut are somewhat beloved and adorable by the fans of squishes globally. Nonetheless, the chocolate doughnut is still considered a rare squishy owing to the fact the just few units were produced during the initial run of the product by Sanrio.

How are plastic toys made?

The plastic toy manufacturing system has remained stable at a certain level in recent years, using mostly the transformation by injection. This method has advantages over others such as the wide range of materials that can be used or the possibility of automation of a large part of the process. The use of techniques such as gas assisted injection also allows solving complex finishing problems or reducing the amount of material, among other things, which is not possible with conventional injection. In many cases it has been tried, on the already existing processes, to make improvements and modifications, but none has been imposed.

As is known, gas injection allows the manufacture of hollow parts, with the consequent saving of material and replacement of other less automated processes. Many finishing problems in complex parts are also solved with this technique, presenting the additional advantage that a module can be incorporated into a conventional injection equipment, which does not require a significant investment. In products as temporary as toys, it can be an advantage (especially for auxiliary companies), since, in times of low demand, production can be oriented towards other fields.

It has also been studied the presence of injection machinery currently in the companies in the area, proving that in some companies with a high sales volume some of these machines are available. However, in the vast majority, although known, this technique has not yet been implemented, partly due to the ignorance of the totality of possible applications. Both the companies that have this machinery and those that have not, have shown great interest in the study to be carried out to select novel and conflicting pieces in order to obtain them by injection with gas.

It is important to note that the implementation of gas-assisted injection technology in the toy sector has investment costs necessary for the companies involved, derived from the acquisition of new equipment, renovation or modification of the current tooling and specific training of personnel in the new technologies, being a bit of future of clear profitability.

Toys, especially plastic ones, are made using very stringent regulations. This is because they are very strict about what gets to be played with children and what can be used by little kids.
These kid’s toys are made using strict specifications to ensure their safety. So, therefore, the materials that are used for manufacturing are all non-toxic. Even the paint that is used for the shell and exterior of these toys are made to be non-toxic as well. This is a safety precaution because some kids will naturally suck on the toys. If you as a parent, are aware of how kid’s toys are manufactred, then you will also know which ones are the better ones to buy.
