Review:
Kim was researching for a replacement Apple Squishy, combined with the popularity of Galaxy-themed stim toys, they recommended this one to me. Naturally, I had to add it to my own personal collection but I decided I should also add this to the stim toy giveaway I plan on hosting for Pushing Boundaries series.

The Galaxy Apple is 10cm, it belongs on the larger end of the scale of my Squishy Collection, I’ve included a picture of my favourite pale-pink strawberry squishy to act as a visual-guide for size-scale:

The Galaxy Apple is very soft and squishable, and when it’s squished, it’s slow rising. The skin is shinny and scented, but the scent isn’t particularly strong (or at least not by my standards). I have to hold the apple up to my face to smell it. I’m certain that the scent will fade away when given the proper airing time. There’s a picture below of what the apple looks like when crushed inside a fist.

I was concerned that the “shiny” paint might come off on my hand when I crushed it, but this was unfounded, no paint has come off or faded since I’ve obtained the apple and began playing with it.

In conclusion, while I do have penchant for large type of squishable stim toy, I really enjoy the Galaxy Apple. The colours are lovely, but I think it’s the softness of the apple that confirms it as an excellent choice (my squishable colossal peach is firmer by comparison).
