I bought these a long time ago. I think I picked them up when they were in the Clearance shelves for last Halloween. So their cost was surprisingly low, which might explain why I'd buy them considering I'm not really a fan of Squinkies.
But Chibizised Maggie and Santa's Little Helper are adorable. And they cost under $1. I ended up putting them in my Claw Machine. So now anyone who visits my apartment has a chance to win one of them.
