I suppose you mean squishy?
Yea, Futurama has definitely taken the high road in regards to merchandise based off of the show. I seem to remember Groening mentioning that you wouldn't see Futurama shampoo and the like, although we did get a trash can, playing cards and tin coasters to maybe they have loosened up a bit on that aspect.
The field is still wide open when it comes to what can be done. Just based off of the squishy toys there are other avenues to persue and ideas within the show to develop. I wouldn't mind seeing some mini-statues made similar to those being made by Hamilton (?) featuring the many faces of Homer. I think it would be great to have statues made of Bender and Zoidberg commemorating their epic battle from AoI I. Nibbler with space ship and Fry just emerging from his cryo-tube as well as his first look out at New New York would all be great I think. Or how about Dwight and Cubert in their make shift interstellar paper route vehicle. There are endless great ideas just waiting to be done.
And even though it is not a toy tops on my list is still Futurama trading cards!!! I would love to see at least one set produced at some time. The die-casts would be great as well. They seem relatively easy and it would be nice have as many characters done in this scale as we can get. Mom and her three sons, Zapp, Kif, Cubert and Dwight are all must haves I think.
It may take some time but I think anyone one of these ideas could be made a reality and be popular.
