Jack is not just any Squishmallow, he holds the prestigious title of being the 500th Squishmallow ever created!
He is also the very first limited-edition Squishmallow to be exclusively sold on Squishmallows.com.
Jack made his debut as part of the all-new "Select Series." This special series is easily recognized by its sleek black matte hangtag, indicating that the character is rare and highly sought-after.
To further emphasize his unique collectability, Jack proudly displays a beautifully embroidered gold heart with a "500" emblem on the inside of his left ear and on his exquisite gold sewn-in label.
And metaphorically speaking, Jack's got a heart of gold as he believes in giving back and lending a helping hand.
Measuring at a generous 16 inches, the black cat Jack is an elegant all-black cat. However, there's a catch - there are only 500 of these extraordinary Squishmallows ever made available for purchase. Don't miss out on the opportunity to own a true collector's item!
As of September 2023, this exclusive plush toy now has an estimated value of roughly $1,299.99! As you can imagine, Jack the Black Cat is a highly coveted treasure among collectors.

He's not just a pretty face with closed white eyes and whimsical white whiskers. He's also a cat of conviction, never hesitating to raise his voice for himself or those he holds dear.
Yes, he can be a tad feisty, but isn't that part of his charm?
So why should you consider adding Jack to your Squishmallow collection?
Well, not only will you be embracing a rare Halloween gem, but you'll also be welcoming a friend who's got your back, cuddles on demand, and a golden heart.

Let's investigate several of these unique Halloween Squishmallows and where they came to be!
Oogie Boogie Delight
Oogie Boogie Delight is a plush toy found mostly on eBay and Mercari at varying prices.
This malevolent character, offered in both green and beige hues, takes inspiration from the beloved film "The Nightmare Before Christmas."
His design showcases a ghostly visage, with eyes that exude an eerie allure, and features a captivating pattern of red dice adorning its lower body.
Oogie Boogie is sure to give your collection a spooky edge. This unique character, with a grudge against traditional Halloween customs, believes in a more wicked and malevolent celebration.
Crafted from a distinctive burlap sack, Oogie Boogie is not your average cuddly toy. He's filled to the brim with an assortment of creepy-crawlies - thousands of bugs, a duo of spiders, and even a slithering snake.
So why should you add Oogie Boogie to your rare Squishmallow squad?

Casey the Candy Corn Bat

Casey is a delightful mix of colors and elements, reflecting her vibrant personality.
Her body mimics a piece of candy corn, with a snowy white top that gradually transitions into a warm orange center, ending with a cheerful yellow at the bottom.
She's sweet, but Casey is also an adventurous night creature.
Her jet-black bat wings are a stark contrast against her candy corn body, adding a touch of mystery to her persona.

One of her bat Squishmallow editions has a bewitching black witch hat perched atop her head, adorned with a purple band and an orange buckle, giving her an undeniable Halloween appeal.
Gio the Gargoyle

He heads out nightly to fly downtown over tall bridges, buildings, and trees!
This dragon-like creature is a spectacle to behold, sporting a dull white coat speckled with black, reminiscent of a starry night sky flipped on its head.
His grey belly and snout contrast beautifully against his body, while his wide-open eyes seem to invite you into his world of high-altitude adventures.
But it's his wings that truly steal the show; black as the midnight sky, adorned with skeletal white markings that whisper tales of ancient lore.
Topping off his look are dark grey horns and lighter grey ears, adding to his unique, mythical charm.
So, why should you consider adding Gio to your collection?
Well, aside from being a rare Halloween Squishmallow, he embodies the spirit of freedom and adventure like no other.
Whether you're an avid collector or a Squishmallow newbie, Gio is sure to add a touch of mystery and magical to your lineup.

Underneath that white mask with a beak, and the black collar shirt with a grey belly adorned by purple buttons, beats the heart of a true softie.
His round black eyes are not just the windows to his soul, but also to a world where everything is sprinkled with kindness.
When he's not whipping up extra sweet pumpkin spice lattes at his coffee shop, he's lending a helping hand to his friend Benti at the local animal shelter, bottle-feeding the most adorable baby kittens.
The contrast between his dark, mysterious attire, featuring a black hat secured with a purple belt, and his warm, inviting personality is what makes Aldron truly unique.
So why should you add this rare Halloween Squishmallow to your collection?

Caring for Your Rare Halloween Squishmallows Collection
After acquiring your rare Halloween Squishmallows, proper care and maintenance are paramount to conserve their value and condition.
This section offers advice on cleaning, storing, and showcasing your treasured collection to maintain its pristine condition for years ahead.
Cleaning and Storage
To keep your rare Halloween Squishmallows looking their best, proper cleaning is essential. Here are some cleaning tips.
For all you Squishmallow aficionados out there, the ever-present question is - can these cuddly, squishy toys survive a trip through the washer or dryer?
The answer is of the utmost importance if you are hoping to retain the collectibility and rarity values. Not only does your Squishmallow need to remain clean, the tag needs to be attached and can't go through the wash!
Though it might be tempting to pop your Squishmallow into the washing machine or give it a tumble in the dryer, it's advisable to resist such impulses.
It's a continuing debate, and there are many who argue that it's not an issue, and that these Squishmallows are resilient enough to handle it, but continue reading for our top tips on Squishy care.
These soft and huggable creatures favor more gentle cleaning methods. I would suggest treating them to a sponge bath with a mild soap and warm water.
Carefully dab at any stains or marks, making sure not to scrub too hard so as not to disrupt their squishy charm. Use a hand soap or mild soap lightly if needed.
Once cleaned, let them dry naturally! I've often sped up the process with a fan.
Your Squishmallows will be clean and eager to embark on further adventures with their reliable fiesta friends heading to Día de los Muertos events.
Now, bear in mind, I'm a parent as well! If you have children, pets, or just generally live life on the edge, there will be times when your Squishy has had an unfortunate encounter with a candy bar or has had a little too much milk to drink!
Again, if collecting is your aim, do not let your Squish play with kids!
In such dire circumstances, machine washing on a gentle cycle with a gentle detergent may be necessary. I would still avoid using the dryer as the heat may damage the plush texture.
For those with delicate decorations and attachments or special appliques, fuzzy materials, accessories, and ornaments, please stick to hand washing and air drying.
Treat your cherished Squishmallows with the tender loving care they rightfully deserve!
After cleaning your Squishmallows, store them in a clean, dry place to keep them dust-free and looking their best. Proper storage will help maintain their value and ensure they remain a cherished part of your collection for years to come.
Displaying Your Collection
Show off your rare Halloween Squishmallows collection with pride by displaying them in an eye-catching and creative way. Here are some ideas:
- Group them by theme, size, or color
- Use different levels and heights to add visual interest
- Enhance the display with props and accessories that complement the Halloween theme, such as miniature pumpkins, spider webs, or a small haunted house backdrop.
For added effect, use soft, warm lights to create a cozy and inviting atmosphere for your Squishmallows display.
String lights or LED candles can provide a truly magical touch.
If you have a large collection, consider rotating your Squishmallows throughout the season to keep your display looking fresh and exciting.
