The world is set to enter beta on June 1st. What sets this world apart from earlier virtual worlds with a physical toy tie-in is price point: Sqwishland figurines cost from $.25 to $.50 and are sold largely in capsule vending machines. Each toy will now come packaged with an item code that kids can redeem in order to add a certain amount of SqwishCash to their Sqwishland.com account, which can then be spent to buy virtual goods.

The Sqwishland animal figurines launched in 2006, designed by Dax and Lauri Logue as something they could distribute through their bulk vending machine supply business. The cheap collectible figurines have sold over 47 million units through the sort of vending machines typically found outside of department and convenience stores. Sqwishland.com entered development in 2009, probably inspired by the success of other toy lines with virtual world tie-ins like Webkinz.

Sqwishland.com is developed by FunGuy Studios in partnership with Sqwishland LLC and launched in January 2010. The virtual world is banking on its affordable price point to keep a broad range of kids interested. Since the toys cost only a quarter or two, Brand Vending expects that virtually any kid can participate regardless of how wealthy his or her parents are. This means that even families hurting from the recession can still afford to let kids get into Sqwishland.

In Sqwishland.com, kids can raise a copy of their physical Sqwishland toy in a virtual pet-like fashion. Users can design an environment for their pet and protect it from the virtual world’s bad guys, creatures called Sqwabbles that will threaten a player’s pet. Sqwishland LLC intends to keep expanding the Sqwishland brand, talking up ideas for an animated television series and stepping up production so that over 2 million new casules per week are shipping out to stores nationwide.
