It’s been a while since we last got a look at the squishy toy storage market, but it seems that some of the biggest companies in the space are taking note.
Today, Squishy Toys is announcing a new product line that’s designed to help people keep their toys and electronics safe, organized, and easily accessible.
Squishy products will include toys that are compatible with the Amazon Echo, the Apple Watch, and Android Wear devices.
That means that the devices can be connected with one another and can be used as a stand-alone device, with or without a power adapter.
Squishies products will be available at Amazon and other retailers this month, and there are plans to release the line in other countries as well.
Amazon also announced today that it’s opening up a new “Squishy” store in Seattle, and they’ll be adding to the product offerings throughout the rest of the year.
Amazon’s new product lines are designed to provide users with an easy way to keep their stuff safe, organize it, and make it easy to access it, but they also have the potential to provide some of their own innovations as well, especially if the company can find some more innovative ways to use their hardware and software.
The Echo’s “Squishies” line is also a great example of how Amazon is trying to keep up with its growing hardware and hardware automation capabilities, but this new line is designed to go even further and make that a real option for people.
The company said that the new Squishy line will help “make it easy for you to get your stuff securely and safely, and also make it easier to keep your stuff safe with the latest Amazon Echo accessories and smart home technology.”
The Echo and other Echo devices can also be used to turn off certain functions, such as music playback, when you want to, and the company said the Echo will also allow you to control the Echo from within your home.
It’s a big step for Amazon, and one that will likely lead to more people choosing to buy devices that are designed specifically for them, as well as allowing Amazon to continue to expand its hardware automation platform.
Amazon is also announcing that it will launch an “Echo for the home” app in the coming months that will help owners of Echo devices and Echo accessories “get started” with their home automation.
Amazon isn’t the only company looking to take a different approach to their hardware automation offerings, either.
Microsoft has also started a new line of Echo accessories that will be compatible with Xbox consoles and Windows PCs.
And while there’s no word on when the Echo for the TV line will be ready, Microsoft’s product line will “bring you the most powerful and best-looking entertainment devices available today.”
In the same way that the Echo line has the potential of helping people make sure their stuff is safe, it also has the opportunity to help Microsoft expand its existing hardware automation services, especially since the company already offers a large number of hardware and accessory partners, including Apple, Microsoft, and Google.
